Laugh ‘n’ Gas

Posted by

Laughter they say is the best medicine, I’d like to disagree, ecstasy pills put in a pretty good shift. It’s always good to hear people laugh at your jokes though. That is, till they laugh so much they start crying now you don’t know if you should continue talking or hand them a tissue.

Some people laugh so much they fart in the process. I don’t have any problem with this. Matter of fact it’s mildly amusing. Where I do have a problem is when these people blame the farts on the laughter. No sweetie, you already had the farts stored up, the laughter was only the trigger.

You ever been with someone that laughs so much that you start laughing too? Easily my best kind of people. Like why are you constantly amused? What is so funny? Why am I laughing at the way you’re laughing? Better yet, why is your laugh making my laugh to laugh?

When a person you don’t like cracks a joke and everyone laughs. In your defense, as you struggle to keep your face muscles in check, there is beef. This one time, a guy I was beefing cracked a joke and I’m struggling not to laugh but it was creeping up on me. So I laugh(loud and throaty) and remind him afterward that as good as the joke was, the cold war remains. Commitment

For some, laughter is a coping mechanism. To laugh at life’s ridiculous turn of events makes those events bearable. You ever be in a fix so bad you start laughing? The teacher hands you your script. You can tell it’s bad cause he’s folding a corner of the paper. You open it just for confirmation and let out a chuckle. What do you say to zero over twenty? And your overzealous teacher took out time to draw a face in the zero, with ears and everything.

I know I got zero, but have you seen the look on the zero? It’s smiling!

Ladies, listen up! Imma let you in on a little secret. Funny guys are dangerous. You laugh and laugh and boom! you’re in a committed relationship. Here comes the part. Isn’t it great that ladies swear that all they want is a sweet guy that makes them laugh and also doesn’t take things too seriously? But the breakup story usually sounds along these lines…

“Gottfried, you never take me seriously?”

“Honey, that’s exactly what I advertised”

I’ll have you know that there is a thin line between sanity and insanity. As you laugh, you’re flirting along that line, any wrong move and boom, a nut goes loose. If you’ve seen the Joker, you know how this ends. Here’s a pro tip on laughter from yours truly.

If you’re going to try, go all the way

  1. You ever been in a formal gathering of extremely non-smiling serious minded individuals, then you remember a very funny scenario and the laughter just burst out of nowhere after rigorous attempts to hold it in ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚…

  2. Today is my middle Swiss grandson’s birthday. He’s 26. He is a crack-up! Makes me laugh all the time. He would love your blog. Better yet, he’d love having a chance to exchange sarcastic banter with you. He’d have met his match! I hope he takes my recommendation and logs in to see this post. I know he’ll love it. I did!

  3. Hey! so many Comments, You hit the Nail On the Head! Even my friend LWBUT made a Comment! I think the subject was JOY here? am I wrong? Joy is something I am feeling Right Now, along with Gratitude, for the life I am Gifted with. I could just as easily have my Heart Stop Beating, and what would that be Like? Either I wind UP^ in Paradise, or no-where’s village, where no-one bother’s to meet their neighbors, Where all are Strangers, and Children starve to death, because the men are all off fighting insane wars, and only come home, to keep their wives Pregnant. Another Warrior Born, unless it is a worthless girl, unless I desire Sex…..True JOY comes when I treat all Men, Women, and Children as equals, therefore when one has less than I, I share it out, until all men are equals! That is JOY!

      1. Brother, I have fasted now for almost forty days and forty nights, just to see if I could follow in Jesus foot-steps, it is a hard road to follow, I do not know if I would go, willingly to that Cross, even after all of this, I can feel the nails going through my hands and feet, I can feel the sacrifice that must be made, but yet I wonder, after two thousand years of hanging on that cross, might it be better if we freed him from that cross, and sent him on his way, would we be the better for it?

      2. What is not for YOU to say? Are you reluctant to engage in simple conversation? I do not care for those “Emoji’s” they mean nothing to me, do not send them to me! Speak your mind, or forever wish you had. Spoken out to me!

  4. Bunkessa told me about what happened one day in chemistry class.
    She was having a tough time holding in some gas, so she decided to create a distraction to hide the sound, and slowly slid her books off her desk. They hit the floor with a bang, everyone turned to see what happened, and then she farted.

  5. They say that laughter is contagious, which is probably true, but did you know that, for example only men can laugh properly, while women canยดt (it has to do something with Adamยดs apple, or laryngeal prominence in medical terms, which is not so expressed like in men, which is one of the reason why menยดs laugh is so deep, while women only produce sounds that are similar to laughing, but in reality they are not)…

      1. It happened at the dinner table. Someone brought up the topic of beef tongue sandwiches. I said that I didn’t like the thought of tasting something that was tasting me back. Then a pea flew out my mother’s nose.

      1. You got it.

        Given that farts are controllable and sneezes are not, the sneeze pulled the fart aside and made a deal unbeknownst to me, settled on a plan, and executed it simultaneously. The result was something akin to what is said to go through a goose, only wetter and faster.

        I was on a project deadline, and since I’m a conscientious worker, I accepted my discomfort, completed my work, then loudly complained about my co-worker’s excessive flatulence. Suddenly I had a dental appointment and I left the office early.

        TRUE STORY (as far as you know).

      2. Sorry about the homies doing you dirty. Shit happens.

        About your co-worker, I can imagine his fist just wanted to have a conversation with your cavities but things just got quite out-of-hand. Such a shame really ๐Ÿ˜‚

  11. Literally laughing out loud… Have you ever been in a situation where everyone’s sober and the atmosphere is thick more like at a funeral and you bursted?… How would the world be if there ain’t no sunshine? Laughter is life itself… Call me a fool, I’ll payback with laughter… I remember being beaten for laughing unnecessarily (so my dad said), but it’s in me and can’t do without…
    Lol, Joker was an awesome one…
    Thank you for every Monday.. ๐Ÿ˜

  13. Laughter is still the Best medicine. Ever been in a situation where something very funny was said and everyone started laughing buh you couldn’t laugh cos u’re not part of the conversation. All u could do was Just muffle the laughter then look for any opportunity to burst into laughter, and after laughing welll u just simply say ‘sorry’ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  14. You ever laughed so hard that you couldnโ€™t hold a pen?
    At that point your your stomach walls are so tight, theyโ€™re trying to squeeze the life out of you. Extreme levels ๐Ÿคฃ
