No kidding!

Sometimes a joke is just a joke.

And not a deliberate manipulation, power play, micro aggression, political attack or intended personal offense.

Funny

Sometimes a jest, a quip or a pun is not a Freudian slip – but merely a leap at silliness, a feeble attempt at levity, a verbal slide on a banana peel.

Like almost everything else in this imperfect world, sometimes comedy is really dumb,

but…

Laughter and Play

can bring people closer together and unite them.

Positive humor

Take a flight into whimsy,

a playful swing at fun,

a flirtation with optimism,

a respite from burdensome reality.

Laughter can be the best (if not the cheapest) medicine.

April is National Humor Month

10 Apr

 

I love holidays. They have the power to distract from the humdrum that is perhaps  99.9999% of our lives.

Take a regular, run-of-the-mill day or month, proclaim it a holiday, and presto – it’s special. It instantly becomes blog fodder, a popular theme for school activities, a reason to party, and a barrel of marketing opportunities.

In case you missed it,

April is National Humor Month

National Humor Month

 

“National Humor Month was founded in 1976 by best-selling humorist Larry Wilde, Director of The Carmel Institute of Humor. It is designed to heighten public awareness on how the joy and therapeutic value of laughter can improve health, boost morale, increase communication skills and enrich the quality of one’s life.”

It is fitting that April, the clammy month that begins with a spirit of play on April Fool’s Day and includes the dreaded April 15th, Tax Day, celebrate comic relief.

Research studies claim the physical, psychological, and social benefits of humor are tremendous. But have you heard the latest – that humor is an aphrodisiac?
