Welcome to the 112th Humormeister's Forum edition

We usually get away to shorten up the Winter. This year, we have planned and discussed a few trips, which will now happen this Summer or Fall.

Although we haven't made up our mind, we both feel that planning and creating something to look forward to is already a bit of vacation, if only in the mind.

Funny quotes

The 1 Minute laugh

My High School assignment was to interview a Veteran about World War 2. Since my father had served in the Philipines during the war, I chose him.

After a few questions, I very gingerly asked, "Did you ever kill anyone?"

Dad got quiet. Then, in a soft voice, he said, "Probably, I was the cook."

Kids are funny!

Laughter is cheaper then 'Prozac' and there are no side effects

A recent survey showed that 70-90% of us feel stressed at work and in our personal lives. Today's fast-paced lifestyle is putting a toll on all of us.

Here are some reasons why we want to use humor to relieve stress:

  • you get immediate results
  • It takes no special talent, ability, or skill
  • You don't need a Master's degree, diploma, or license
  • It makes you feel good
  • It's fun
  • It's cholesterol free
  • And you don't need any batteries

If you loose your zest for laughter - you loose your zest for life!

Life is good when laughter is frequent!

  • We need to socialize more!
  • We need to generate more humor and laughter in our lives!
  • We have to enjoy life instead of enduring it!
