What's the funniest creature type in Magic?

Mark Rosewater: Magic has numerous humorous creature types. Among my short list are:

Squirrels
Beebles
Atogs
Goblins
Chicken
Clamfolk

The one that most tickles my funny bone are chickens. Chickens have long been a comedy staple (see rubber chicken) and I was very happy to use them in Unglued. If we eliminate the Un-sub types (the ones that only exist in silver-bordered land—Chickens would just be Birds in black-bordered land), I would have to go with Squirrels. If Goblins are red's attempt at humor, to me Squirrels are green's. Green loves the idea that things that seem innocent and silly can, in fact, kick your butt. And Squirrels just make me chuckle whenever I see them.
