We were down at our favorite waterfront café, my wife Carol was joking with the owner while we were waiting for lunch, I was 2 tables away talking with friends, and noticed the menu behind Carol, when she laughed it appeared that she was about to bite into the painted piece of pie, having my camera, sat it on the edge of the table and shot away as she laughed, was really surprised with the result this frame being the best of about 12.

Opened raw file in Lightroom, auto tone and crop,

Thank you for the comments, this is a natural shot and was not staged, I do not see what is so hillarious or funny about it as mentioned in the comments, maybe a happy scene is what cost.
