Good news for humorists--a dedicated mobile app for comedic video site Funny or Die will be coming to your iPhone, eventually.

Web content platform Babelgum announced on Thursday an exclusive wireless deal with Funny or Die to bring videos from the latter to mobile applications like the iPhone. Look for a Funny or Die app to hit Apple's iPhone App Store sometime in the very near future. Babelgum tells us it submitted the software to Apple for consideration on Thursday.

The license agreement also allows Babelgum to integrate Funny or Die videos into the comedy channel of Babelgum apps. Babelgum, which streams videos in film, music, and other categories, says it will also feature a Funny or Die section on its online comedy channel.

The exclusive wireless partnership between the two companies will last for two years.

Note: Funny or Die features some video clips with mature themes.
