Laughter: The Antidote to Insanity August 1, 2010Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Health & Wellness, Humor, Music & Dance.
During a vote held last year, WEbookers checking out Laughter is the Best Medicine and Poems for People Who Hate Poems (a collection of humorous poetry) pressed the “Publish” button only 51% of the time.
My initial reaction:
What’s up with that?! This stuff is F-U-N-N-Y!
After more than a few moments of head scratching, I realized that those percentages might have nothing to do with the quality of the submissions, or the “popularity contest” which had permeated the vote.
How sobering would that be?
Oh, what a world . . . what a world.
Did pushing “Nope ~ don’t think so” make these sober individuals feel better about life ~ staving off clinical depression a few more months (or minutes)?
Did our attempts at levity push any angst-ridden writers over the brink into the abyss ~ causing them to seriously consider suicide as the coward’s way out of this journey we call life?
Hmm . . .
I guess we’ll never know.
What I do know . . .
If we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane
If we weren’t all crazy . . . we ~ would ~ go ~ insane!
Thanks, Jimmy! Enjoy The Year of Still Here!
