The 1 Minute Laugh

A man goes to see the Rabbi. "Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it." The Rabbi asked. "What's wrong?" The man replied, "My wife is poisoning me." The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?" The man then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she is poisoning me, what should I do?" The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know." A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife. I talked to her on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?" The man said yes and the Rabbi replied, "Take the poison!"

Humor from our richest 'Humor Resource'......our kids

Students in a biology class were taking their mid-term exam. The last question was, Name seven advantages of Mother's Milk. The correct seven answers will earn you an 'A' grade for all correct answers.

One student, in particular, was hard put to think of seven advantages. He wrote:

  • It is a perfect formula for the child
  • It provides immunity against several diseases
  • It is always the right temperature
  • It is inexpensive
  • It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa
  • It is always available
And then, the student was stuck. Finally in desperation just before the bell, indicating the end of the test, rang, he wrote.....It comes in cute containers

He received an 'A' Plus on the exam.

    Why we need to laugh more!

    April Fools day is perfect reminder to 'Lighten up!'Laughter bonds people, and best of all, it's contagious. Unfortunately, there is a lack of laughter in the world today. People have lost their balance and perspective.

    Thankfully, there is hope for even those not being able to laugh spontaneously. Laughter advocates worldwide are taking action to reverse this trend by bringing back laughter to anybody willing to join 'Laughter Clubs,'where they practice Laughter Yoga and Laughter Meditation.

    In Berlin, Germany there is even an official Laughing School to remind Germans how to laugh.

    Fake laughter, as practiced by Laughter Yoga Clubs, provides the same benefits as real laughter. Experts point out that laughter does not require humor or comedy.

    We are natural-born laughers. As a matter of fact people were laughing before they developed language to communicate with one another.

    To positively enhance our health, wellness and stress-coping mechanisms, we desperately need to incorporate more laughter.

    Few people deny that laughter is 'good medicine." However, not many people realize the powerful tool for transformation it is.

    Research has confirmed the physical health benefits to the medical community, as individuals who have experienced the healing results from laughter have proven how powerful a medicine laughter really is.

    In addition research is now validating the enormous benefits of laughter to personal motivation and team building and organization productivity.

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