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
