The Humormeister's Forum, Issue #00095
October 31, 2015
Welcome to the 95th Humormeister's Forum edition
I am still reorganizing and rewriting my website www.humor-laughter.com. I am about 25% along with the project. I land up rewriting some sections, deleting others, and inserting a number of new web pages.
A large task, but I'm having a lot of fun doing it!

The 1 Minute laugh
Murphy, an Irish painter was a gifted portrait artist. Over a short number of years, his fame grew and soon people from all over Ireland came to him to get their portrait painted.
One day, a beautiful young English woman arrived at the house in a stretch limo and asked if he would paint her in the nude.
This being the first time anyone had made such a request, he was a bit taken aback, particularly when the woman told him that money was no object; in fact she was prepared to pay him up to $ 10.000.
Not wanting to get into any marital difficulties, he asked her to wait a moment while he went to confer with his wife.
In a few minutes he returned. "It would be me pleasure to paint yer portrait missus," he said. "The wife says it's okay."
"I'll paint ya da nude alright, but I have to at least leave me socks on, so I have a place to wipe me brushes"......
Kids are funny!
A two-and-a-half year old went with an older neighbor girl to a 1st communion practice. The priest had the children cup their hands and would give them a piece of bread while saying,"God be with you."
Apparently they made quite an impression on the little girl. When she came home, she took a piece of bread, placed it in her mother's cupped hands and whispered in an angelic voice, "God will get you!"
Article of the month
Laugh yourself healthy
Humans are designed to laugh. Laughter is nature's stress buster. It lifts our spirits with a happy high that makes us feel good and improves our behavior towards others.
Just a few decades ago, happy healthy humans spent 20 minutes a day or more in laughter. Today, adults' daily laugh time is down to 5 minutes or less.
Laugh yourself healthy. A regular 20 minute laughter session can have a profound impact on our health and well-being.
Laughter is a gentle exercise, it fills the lungs and body with oxygen, deep-clears your breathing passages and exercises your lungs. This is really important for people who don't get regular aerobic exercise.
When we laugh, our bodies release a cocktail of hormones and chemicals that have startling and positive effects on our system. Stress is reduced, blood pressure drops, depression is lifted, your immune system is boosted and more.
Western science is just starting to discover the great effects of laughter.
