Welcome to the 'Humormeister's Forum

Welcome to the 129th Humormeister's Forum edition

Babies start laughing when they are 10 -12 weeks old ( usually after a good bowel movement ). By the time they are 4 years old, they laugh on the average 400 times a day.

After that age, it's all downhill, because of the serious directions we receive from parents and teachers. I'm sure you will recognize them:

  • Wipe that stupid grin off your face!
  • You're not funny!
  • Act your age!
  • Keep laughing and I'll give you something to cry about!

Is it any wonder that as we grow up, we lose our ability to laugh?

The 1 minute laugh

I was in a friend's house trying to fix their Internet connection. The husband called out to his wife in the next room for the computer password.

She replied, Start with a capital S, then 123.

We tried S123 several times, but it didn't work. So we called his wife to show us.

As she input the password, she muttered, I really don't know what's so difficult typing Start123.

Kids are funny

While walking the sidewalk in front of his church, the Minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his clerical collar wilt.

His 5 year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin.

Deciding that a proper burial should be performed, they had found a small box and had lined it with Kleenex tissue.

they dug a hole and were preparing for the burial service.

The Minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayer. The boy with proper dignity intoned what he thought his father always said.

"Glory be the Father and the son.....and in the hole he goes."

Humor is connected to having a positive attitude, self-confidence, and a good sense of humor

This best illustrated with a story.

A woman goes to he doctor for her annual check-up. When the doctor is finished with the examination, he tells her"You are in terrific shape - you've got the figure of an 18 year-old!"

When she gets home, she is in the process of changing her clothes and while doing so, she admires her naked body in the full-length mirror.

Just as she clucks approvingly, her husband walks in. He says, "What are you doing?"

She replies," I'm looking at my body. My doctor told me that I have the body of an 18 year-old."

He says, "Did he say anything about you 40 year-old ass?"

She replied, "No!-Your name never came up!"

No matter what your race, your gender, or your financial situation - Life is good when laughter is frequent!

If you can't laugh - smile! If you can't smile - fake it until you make it!

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

  • 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!
