Comedy. Laughter. Humor.

Take as often as needed.

No costly doctor’s appointment – in the flesh or virtual – required.

No adverse side effects – not even the usual ones – nausea, headache, constipation, diarrhea, kleptomania, heart attack, tennis elbow, diarrhea, flat foot, droopy eye, dandruff, diarrhea and death.

And – best of all – you can’t overdose on laughter.

Barb Best Humor Blog Traits We Really Want to Know

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is available at-home genetic testing for likely traits such as cilantro aversion, earwax type (wet? dark-colored? sticky? Gross!), photic sneeze reflex (whatever that is), asparagus odor detection, and unibrow.

Seriously, do you need a DNA test to confirm your hair color (unless you actually can’t recall your original color) or remind you that you can smell asparagus in your pee?

Traits We Really Want To Know If We’re Carrying

  • Smart Ass gene
  • Propensity to drown in credit card debt

Cheese Is Addictive – Who Knew?

24 Oct

 

Cheese – soft, semi-soft, firm, hard – is the black sheep of the food pyramid.

Admittedly, I never met a brie, blue, or Asiago I didn’t adore.

From The L.A. Times by Jenn Harris “Cheese Really Is Crack – Study Reveals Cheese Is As Addictive As Drugs”

Blame it on opiates, dopamine receptors, and our lust for pizza. […]

Boob Job: Feel The Pain

21 Jun

 

Had a boob job yesterday.

BarbBestHumor

Actually… it was a mammogram from hell*

This mammogram was a slammogram.

A grand slammo.

Ladies… you know the drill.

Your bountiful breasts are slammed onto a cold glass panel (oddly similar to a shelf in your refrigerator), then pressed mercilessly ’til your eyes water or your ears bleed (whichever comes first).

Then the technician runs to her safe place across the room and shouts, “Don’t breathe.”

(“Honey… no problem. I stopped breathing with the first cringing slam.”)

Women… feel our pain!

Forget ’bout water boarding. A grueling slammo on private parts will make grown men squeal like rats.

English: Woman undergoing a mammogram of the r...

*Disclaimer: Truly hellish is “Lumps, cysts, malignancies are suspected and/or found.”

* Don’t forget to schedule your annual mammogram.

* Do jokes need warning labels and legal disclaimers now?

My BEST TIPS to RELAX ALREADY

1 May

 

Hooray for MAY!

April was National Stress Awareness Month… which frankly was rather stressful.

Remembering to breathe and all that nonsense.  Geez, what a chore!

 

Ahhhh!

Ahhhh!

My BEST TIPS to RELAX ALREADY

  • Have coffee (for the beans) in the a.m. and red wine (for the antioxidants) in the p.m.
  • Eat quality dark chocolate daily in amounts larger than your cell phone but smaller than your head.
  • When feeling anxious, play with something small and furry… maybe a cat or dog or ? Use your imagination.
  • Smile effortlessly ’til it hurts.
  • Help someone else… unless it involves excessive blood loss or advanced calculus.
  • Help someone else help you. Particularly satisfying! Requires an appreciation for manipulation, or as most successful leaders refer to it – motivation.
  • Laugh for no reason ’til you develop TMJ or until you are shunned by family, friends, and lonely strangers on the street.
  • ¬†Instead of an onerous work-out in the gym, take a nap with a pair of earplugs and a gas mask.
  • Don’t drink green tea unless you love green tea. You know it and I know it – sometimes it tastes like expensive hand soap.
  • Have your kids and spouse write a gratitude list. Hopefully you’ll be mentioned now and then. This will make you feel good. Then request a massage… if they are truly grateful, they will comply.
