I'd like to start a thread that's just all about laughter. We spend a lot of time researching our arguments and such, so why not try to balance that with some love, light, and humor?

I'll start with this hilarious video:
http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1935205

And now, I tag Sharon/Mysteria! Find us something to laugh about.

We need a whole bunch of this stuff, too. A lot of pipeople are having hard times with illness, depression and anxiety. So make your contributions here. We can try to help each other forget about the lumps we're taking as we ride out the bumps in the road. And wasn't that video just...funny?

Ama? I'm soooooo grinning. That joke reminds me of the Steven Wright quote I just passed up.

"I just put a skylight up in my livingroom. The people upstairs are really *ticked* off."

(I love weirdness.)

And yeah, I think just any one oughta be able to hop in. I think so because...grin, I just found these taped "dating videos" from the eighties--ahead of its time, and yet? For these poor blokes, probably not a great idea.

Let me know if you fancy any one of these.

Aw...but there ya go, it shouldn't all be links to clips, so here's one that made me smile.

Not So Dumb Blonde

A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from Los Angeles to New York.

The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer
persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun.

He says, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me five dollars, and vice versa."

Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep.

The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500."
This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment, agrees to the game.

The lawyer asks the first question: "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?"

The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

"Okay," says the lawyer, "your turn."

She asks, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?"

The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references ... no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the Internet and the Library of Congress ... no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers but to no avail.

After an hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $500.

The blonde thanks him and turns back to get some more sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, stirs the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?"

Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.

* * *

Hopefully we can pull Mike/Balladeer in here--he's got an encyclopedia of groaners in his head, and Mysteria is just plain funny as well. My problem is keeping the forum decorum  standards. But I'm glad I have one friend to help me with my plan of 'tickle torture'.

Pip has gone through many changes--heart-breaking losses of people, some forums, and I can vouch that I have certainly lost my temper and my sense of humor at times.

I'll try to keep it G-rated, though.

Thanks Amaryllis. And yanno? Personal funny anecdotes are just as welcome.

(I've watched that first video like, ten times already though--and yep, my son spent his first year at UNO in choral, too.)

The kids are alright.

Off to the dentist chair, but you got it when I get back.     In the meantime if this doesn't start your day with a laugh then I don't know what will.

Baby laughing

Here's an excerpt from a Facebook flame war that I found amusing:
http://www.pete.com/media/575/Funny_Facebook_Status/

I've seen a bunch of these, but I think this one passes guidelines here, and yanno? I'm shaking my head. Some online arguments get so crazy it's difficult to ascertain whether people are serious are simply creating parody.

whoops--

I just remembered this old game, which was passed on to me by "latearrival" son. It's a cute game, but can be very addictive. So if you're laid up in bed (hopefully recovering) or if you just can't sleep, try it:
http://www.hotskillgames.com/hot-games/skill-games/test-your-reflexes-with-sheep-tranquilizer.html

If you're using a touchpad, you might find it too challenging to be fun.

And oh, another fun game too--I wanted to tweak this one so that instead of trying to avoid the spiky walls, one would be dressed in one of those fanny-baring gowns, trying to avoid the hospital security orderlies coming atcha with a syringe. (er, it rather reminds me a pre-dawn escape attempt I made after one of my last surgeries.)

And I'm still lovin' on that baby, too!

gleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee is the word for that cutie.

Here a wee one for Kacy (Midnitesun)

I went down to the pub last night and ran into Vincent Van Gogh,

I said, :"Hi Vince, how the heck are you?"

"I'm fine thanks. You ok?"

"Can't complain. Vincent, can I get you a drink?"

"No thanks - I've got one 'ere!"

Cildren were lined up in the cafeteria of a Church elementary school for lunch.

At the head of the table was a large pile of apples.  A nun made a note, and put it on the apple tray...

"Take only ONE. God is watching."

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.

A child had written a note also, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."

Here's a wee one for Ron

A magician was working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The audience would be different each week, so the magician allowed himself to do the same tricks over and over again.

There was only one problem: The captain's parrot saw the shows every week and began to understand what the magician did in every trick. Once he understood that, he started shouting in the middle of the show.

"Look, it's not the same hat!" "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table!" "Hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades?"

The magician was furious but couldn't do anything, it was the captain's parrot after all.

One day the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found himself on a piece of wood, in the middle of the ocean, and of course the parrot was by his side.

They stared at each other with hate, but did not utter a word. This went on for several days.

After a 5 days the parrot piped up, "Okay, I give up. What the heck did you do with the boat?"
