One day three Greek philosophers settled under the shade of an olive tree, opened a bottle of Retsina, and began a lengthy discussion of the Fundamental Ontological Question: Why does anything exist?
After a while, they began to ramble. Then, one by one, they fell asleep.
While the men slept, three owls, one above each philosopher, completed their digestive process, dropped a present on each philosopher's forehead, the flew off with a noisy "hoot."
Perhaps the hoot awakened the philosophers. As soon as they looked at each other, all three began, simultaneously, to laugh. Then, one of them abruptly stopped laughing. Why?
@CE Designer • 15 Dec, 2011 LOL cuz he realised that there was poop on his own forehead.
@PraveenKumar Purushothaman • 18 Dec, 2011 Yeah, he realized that it happened to him too! And he should be the smartest among them! 😀
@Sagar07 • 22 Dec, 2011 Perhaps, he must have remembered the topic of their discussion "Why does anything exist?" and he must have realized that other 2 are also smiling at him...
@zaveri • 27 May, 2012 because he realized that he did not question his own existence , and he found it scary when he realized it.
@Ankita Katdare • 29 May, 2012 @everyone Really interesting answers 😀

Here's a hint to the solution - The one who stopped laughing, asked himself what the other philosophers were seeing that made them laugh.

i think CE Designer gave the answer already. the guy who stopped laughing saw that the other two were looking at his head, and then he himself realized that there was poop on his head and thus he stopped laughing.
@Mrigendra Pratap Singh • 06 Oct, 2015 as soon as he realized there is poop on his forehead too, he stopped laughing.

Perhaps the poop on the forehead provided him with the answer to their question: Why does anything exist.

The answer was: for a reason.

Otherwise there was no reason for day blind owl to poop precisely on the foreheads of the three men.
@Ankita Katdare • 23 Oct, 2015 @Shashank Moghe Interesting explanation. There are many others though. For instance, the most popular one is: If he (the smartest philosopher) had nothing on his head, then he realised that the second smartest philosopher would have quickly worked out that the third smartest was laughing only at the second smartest philosopher, and thus the second smartest philosopher would have stopped laughing.

Because he determined first that the dropping is on his head to!
