The five-time NBA All-Star isn't afraid to laugh at himself. In a series of car commercials, he went back in time and gave his younger self advice, poking fun at his free throw shooting woes. He's also displayed a very dry sense of humor in what he calls his "slam dunk poetry." (His ode to his bobblehead includes the line: "Sometimes I sit and wish you were alive, so I could hit you with an itty-bitty high five.")

The veteran goalie doesn't take himself too seriously either. After a shot from center ice trickled past him, he tweeted a picture of himself using a glove with a giant piece of cardboard attached with the caption, "problem solved." And when a fan tweeted to ask for a birthday shoutout from the "world's greatest goalie," he forwarded the request to Carey Price of the Canadiens.

The big man isn't afraid to embrace his silly side. The self-described "cool nerd" is known for the wacky faces he makes during games — often at his kids, who frequently sit courtside.

The quirky midfielder is known for keeping the U.S. women's national team in stitches. Some of her funniest moments have come on goal celebrations. At the 2011 World Cup, she celebrated scoring by picking up a field microphone and singing the song "Born in the U.S.A."

Now that Peyton Manning has retired, the new QB comedy king is Rodgers. He's such a good photobomber that there's a website dedicated to it. But he also does highbrow humor. His teammates call his jokes "algebra 2" because not everyone gets them.
