Laughter

Guess what today is?  It’s Tell A Joke Day!  So, I searched far and wide (ok, maybe just perused a few sites) for the perfect joke.  My favorite type of joke is the pun, so of course this joke really spoke to me.

“There was a man who entered a local paper’s pun contest.. He sent in ten different puns, in the hope that at least one of the puns would win. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.”

That one had me rolling on the ground.  Get it?  “No Pun In Ten Did”?  No pun intended?  I crack myself up.  🙂

Isn’t laughter great?  Some researchers believe that it helps immunity (Laughter’s the best medicine, you know).  Others think it helps regulate blood pressure and blood sugar.  It stretches muscles in the face and helps with relaxation and sleep.

It helps the quality of life.  I have my moments (or months) of being a debbie downer (particularly when I’m sick or dealing with self esteem).  When I get that way, I tend to gravitate towards comedic movies or funny YouTube videos.  I crave laughter.  It makes the bad just go away long enough to gain perspective.

I love “celebration” days like this where we take a moment just to laugh and enjoy life together.  Do you have a favorite joke, story or pun?
