After reading one of his colleague\'s majority opinions

Justice Scalia by a mile, according to D.C. Dicta.

After reviewing oral argument transcripts from this past term, D.C. Dicta alloted the gallery chortles this way:

Justice Antonin Scalia: 74
Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr.: 23
Justice Stephen Breyer: 21
Justice David Souter: 17
Justice Anthony Kennedy: 9
Justice John Paul Stevens: 7
Justice Samuel Alito, Jr.: 4
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 4
Justice Clarence Thomas: 0

Of course, Justice Thomas‘ lowly rating is less a comment on his sense of humor as much as it is a function of his recalcitrance to make any comment during oral argument, funny or otherwise.

Thx to D.C. Dicta
