Welcome to the 'Humormeister's Forum

Welcome to the 130th Humormeister's Forum edition

Have you seen the movie "Patch Adams?' If you haven't, I highly recommend it.

Doctor Patch Adams said, We have to get people laughing, because it provides balance in people's lives; helps people cope better; helps them staying well; and it helps the healing process when we need it.

Fun Quote Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Okay, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza - Dave Barry

Humor/laughter Quote A smile starts on the lips, a grin spreads to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the chest, but a good laugh bursts from the soul, overflows and bubbles all around - Carolyn Birmingham

One minute laugh

As the hostess at the casino buffet showed me to my table, I asked her to keep an eye out for my husband, who would be joining me momentarily.

I started to describe him, "he has grey balding hair, wears glasses, hearing aids, and has a pot belly....."

She stopped me there, "Honey," she said. "Today is senior day. They all look like that!"

Kids are funny

A little girl was in church with her mother when suddenly she wasn't feeling well. "Mommy," she said, "Can we leave now?"

"No," her Mom replied. "Well, I think I have to throw up!"

"Then go out the front door and around the back of the church and throw up behind a bush."

After a few minutes the little girl returned to her seat. "Did you throw up?" Mom asked. "Yes." "How could you go all the way back of the church and be back so quickly?"

"I didn't go to back of the church, Mommy, They have a box next to the front door that says, 'For the sick.'

Laughter is cheaper than Prozac

Laughter is cheaper than Prozac and there are no side effects

A recent survey showed that 70 - 90 percent of us feel stressed. Today's fast- paced life style is putting a toll on us.

We should be using more humor in our lives to relieve stress for these reasons:

  • 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 batteries

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!
