In a comment, someone told me that Ur wasn't funny. I wanted to know why not!
Ur was one of the major cities of ancient Sumeria (like there's a modern Sumeria or middle-ages Sumeria). It was a coastal city of the Persian Gulf lying along the Euphrates river.
Already I'm bored. Ur was surely not funny.
Great Ziggurats Batman, Ur isn't Funny!
The Great Ziggurat of Ur-Nammu. Unlike Rome's Coliseum, no comedians ever played here. | Source
Sumeria: Ur is in the south, by Eridu. Ur later moved to Iraq because it was more fun than Sumeria. I like to say Sumeria more than Iraq, personally, but Ur does as Ur wants. | Source
Gilgamesh found Sumeria, Ur especially, so not funny that he immigrated to Sydney, Australia. | Source
Nanna was the goddess of Ur. When I Googled her, this is what I found. She doesn't look amused or amusing. She frankly scares me.
Nebuchadnezzar II rebuilt the Great Ziggurat of Ur. He also stomped the Jews. He repented of his stomping after the Jewish god smote him a bit. He does not look like a funny guy. | Source
