Dad’s rejection slip really tickles this baby’s funny bone …

Eight-month-old Micah McArthur became a YouTube sensation after his father uploaded a video clip showing the infant laughing hysterically at the sight of paper ripping.

It all started when the baby’s father ripped up a job rejection letter. His spirits were immediately lifted when the youngster giggled with abandon.

The original clip hit YouTube on January 24, 2011 and has been viewed 5,800,000 times. The boy and his parents sat down with Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer this morning to chat about their 15 plus minutes of fame.

Check out the delightful viral video followed by the Today Show segment featuring Micah and his family:
