"The X-Files" is a funnier show than audiences give it credit.

When Agents Mulder and Scully weren't getting super serious investigating the Cigarette Smoking Man's alien conspiracy, or struggling to survive "Freaks of the Week," the series would churn out some excellent comedic entries -- often times at the tongue-in-cheek expense of the show's dramatic core.

And no one proved to better at making us laugh with -- and at -- the proceedings than Fox Mulder. The series' willingness to make such broad tonal shifts arguably contributed to it being such a fan favorite, especially when it involved Mulder being goofy or making a charming ass out of himself.

In honor of the series' return, here are some of our favorite LOLs at Mulder's expense.
