Something to Laugh About

Laughter truly is the best medicine. We all need something to laugh about because life is always throwing things our way. Sometimes, finding the laughter is hard, but it's so necessary. When I was going through cancer treatments last year, I made it a point to find something to laugh about every day. Even if I was only laughing at myself, I did it. It's a small goal, but not always easy to attain when you don't feel well or you're stressed. Below, I've listed a few things that make me laugh. Feel free to add your own, write a short essay, copy an excerpt from something you've written or tell about your day - finding the humor, of course.

I have several comedians that make me laugh very hard. They aren't to everyone's taste. Some are down right raunchy. Their language may not be the nicest, but they are wonderful at finding the humor in everything. Ron White, Lewis Black, Dennis Leary, George Carlin, Russell Brand, Kevin Hart. There are others, these are the ones I think of right off the top of my head.

Movies or TV shows that make me laugh: "The IT Crowd", "Coupling", "Psych", "Pineapple Express", "Grandma's Boy", "Paul Blart, Mall Cop", "Up".... The list is endless, these are some of the top ranked ones.

Sometimes, the outtakes are funnier than the movie itself. I always watch the outtakes on any DVD that has them. "Star Trek" has great outtakes. So does "Serenity". "Hot Fuzz" is a great movie & also has a very funny blooper reel. There are times when I won't watch the movie, I just watch the bloopers. It gives me a much needed giggle and I'm not sitting there watching a 90 minute movie. Not that I don't love movies, but once in awhile I want a quick chuckle.

So, what makes you laugh? Please share, because we all need to find the laughter.

Good ideas Dellani
I pick particular sitcoms because i can guarantee a good chuckle:
Big Bang
Sh*t my dad says
2 1/2 Men
Sue Seymour on Glee or Jane Lynch in general.
my own goof ups
anything by George Carlin.
reading peoples status's on FB can be amusing.
Plum series Janet Evanocich--Lula inspires laughter.
