Job Interview Filter: "What was the funniest thing that ever happened to you at work?" What kind of answer is my potential employer looking for?

I'm completing a preliminary job interview form, and one of the questions asked is to describe the funniest situation that's ever happened at work. I know a lot of the tricks of these type of questions (when asked about your weaknesses, also explain how you compensate; when asked about your worst boss, briefly explain how you successfully managed the situation; etc.), but this one is stumping me.

Are they looking for evidence of a sense of humor? Proof that I have enjoyed past jobs? A brief sketch comedy? I'm not sure I have the anecdote they're looking for.
Thanks in advance.
