Does anyone else have this or is it just me?

One thing that's always been a source of annoyance to me (because it makes me feel like a weirdo and makes me LOOK like a weirdo to others), is how I get sent into fits of laughter (which often I can't control, they come before I can filter it and hold it in) by quirky, goofy sounds and visuals. I don't know how else to describe it other than that. I have included some examples so that you can see and hear what I'm talking about. Certain musical notes and chords, very high pitched sounds (like a squealing balloon or saxophone), or vibrato on an instrument that makes it sound "broken", people with goofy looks on their face, cats getting wide eyes when excited, the list goes on and on! stuff like that.

What I'm wondering is, is this an autism thing? or it it from something else and I'm just a weirdo? LOL Can anyone else relate?

Note: All these links are safe! they are just to clips I made that show the part I'm using as an example. ... 6wkT_z7ki1 (The sax , and also the guitar and its sound which I remember being popular in the early 80s) ... Xh__I3xIXJ (the keyboard sound) ... q2jthdhcpG ... RkRQ9fYm2w ... ersTheBean (watch the second half of the clip; her eyes get big and wide. LOL)

For those that can relate to this, I hope i give you some laughs and amusement with these clips!! LoL!!

I wouldn't say I have this specifically but I do laugh at a lot of unusual things. For example, when I start the car and the radio automatically comes on, for some reason that's the funniest thing that's happened to me all day. Or sometimes if people use unusual combinations of words, it will hit me at just the right time and for days I can't think of it without laughing hysterically.
People have asked me why I'm laughing and I say, I don't know, it's just funny.
