You're anthropomorphizing. Unless there's a specific reason it *would*
develop a sense of absurdity, the mere complexity of the hypothesis is a
reason it wouldn't develop it simply by chance.

At a first approximation, I would expect a given intelligence to have a
sense of absurdity if and only if it was evolved/designed to detect
attempts to deceive it.
