What's the best use of an inanimate object that has ever been used to make people laugh, ever in the whole thing of stuff ever.

I liked Nigel Hawthorne in The Knowledge when he stuck a nasal pump up each nostril (tusklike) while rapid fire questioning a wannabee cabbie on his knowledge test, without missing a beat. Brilliant.

Bloody hell, that's a good question.

A plank is definitely a good one as is Harpo's horn.
