For "funny"? Yeah, lots of better choices. Excel Saga manga is great for social commentary-type humor (up until recently, however), while the anime is random rofl XD, which isn't so bad if you're in the mood. There's also Genshiken, which isn't really humor in the traditional sense, but a slice of life with jokes about otaku that only they would get - more smile and chuckle "oh, I see what they did there" than laugh out loud.
Really though, if you're looking for the funny, anime/manga isn't the best place to look. It's almost all Buckley humor.
