A Little Help, In The Middle of the Night (AKA – Stuff to Make You Laugh)

Standard

Chubby Hippie Baby has croup.  Eesh.

At this point, he just sounds sort-of hoarse, like he got little over-enthusiastic screaming at a rock concert or something.  The first night, however, was very scary.  He truly couldn’t get any air and we ended up spending the night at the children’s hospital.

The thing about croup is that kids don’t really seem too bad during the day but, for some reason, nature has played a sick-twisted joke on exhausted parents everywhere, because as soon as the sun sets the symptoms of coughing and wheezing and generally sounding like one is drowning kick in.  Of course, babies don’t rest well while coughing and wheezing and feeling like they’re drowning and, as any parent can tell you, if baby doesn’t sleep, no one gets to sleep.

Being awake around the clock for 4 days in a row gives one a fair amount of time to think… though, admittedly that thinking process becomes progressively more erratic sometime after day 2.

At 4am today, for example, with the 914th episode of Blue’s Clues that I’ve seen in the past few days playing quietly in the background, I thought about how I could help my fellow up-all-night-for-various-reasons parents.  I decided that, if I could have anything at that very moment I would wish for hot coffee and something to make me laugh (for in laughing we cast aside the other choice… crying).

I can’t give you coffee.  Because…  you know…  you are there and I am here.  BUT, I can give you justification to drink more coffee.  I once learned that drinking vast amounts of coffee will, over time, lead you down the path of immortality.  John Tesh told me so.  So, stop hesitating and go pour yourself a cup o’ Joe.  It does the body good!

As for laughter… here you go… 5 things that will make you laugh.

1)  The banana slicer.

A friend of mine recently posted this  link to Amazon where one can apparently buy a tool specifically designed for that oh-so-difficult task of slicing bananas.  Read the reviews.  You will laugh, I promise.

2) The Backin’ Up song.

This just cracks me up, and I can’t help but admire the cleverness, creativity and available spare time of the people who made the re-mix.  But be warned.  This song will randomly pop into your head and stay there for weeks on end for the rest of eternity once you watch this.

3) What Celebrities Would Look Like If They Moved To Ohio.

Someone emailed this PDF file to me at work and I laughed so hard I cried.

4) Statue attacks.

I think it’s just the idea of Ronald McDonald slapping the crap out of somebody that really gets me.  I bet he ordered the salad.

5) These pranks.

This is one of those things that build and build and gets funnier and funnier the longer you watch.  I think the Jesus humor is the funniest because, for some reason, Jesus humor is almost always hysterical to me.

So there you go.  I hope it helps.  Hang in there, sleepy moms and dads.  You’re not alone and you will get to sleep again…. some day. I think. Dear God, I hope so.    In the meantime, just keep laughing.

BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

6) No More News

Handsome Hippie Hubby said, “You have to include the “no more news” video! It’s hysterical!”  And so it is.  Enjoy!

Laughter is Good For The Soul… And The Body, Too!

Standard

When you live with this little comedian, you don’t have to go far to find a laugh!

This morning on Live! With Kelly I heard Bryant Gumbel mention a study by the American Department on Aging that said that people who laugh a lot, live considerably longer.

I tried, but couldn’t find a copy of that particular study online.  I did, however find this one from USA Today as well as this one from Cancer Treatment Centers of America.

Various research from multiple highly reliable (well… you know) sources I randomly found on Google also say that laughing helps burn calories, tone the muscles of the stomach and back, alleviate breathing issues, improve relationships and more!

I like you guys an awful lot! I want you all to live long, healthy, prosperous lives.  So I’ve provided, for a variety of readers, a variety of things to make you laugh til your coffee shoots out of your nose.

For some of you, all it will take is a funny animal picture.

If you’re like me, It’s babies that make you laugh.

This one is mine – the littlest Hippie

The littlest Hippie again

Or maybe those bizarre signs you see posted crack you up.

Perhaps you’re more of a video person?

Who can resist laughing babies?

Or maybe the Muppets make you mirthful?

Have you ever started laughing, not because the original “joke” was super funny, but because someone else starts laughing so hard they just can’t get control of themselves?

Perhaps you just like to laugh at people falling down, getting hit between the legs and generally slap-sticking their ways through life?

I don’t know why.  I hope it’s not too irreverent, but Jesus humor gets me every time.

A friend posted this one on Facebook. Thanks, Pr. A!

Are you more old fashioned?  You just like a good joke?  Well…

According to newslite.tv,  these jokes are the top 10 funniest ever.

1. A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: ”Ugh, that’s the ugliest baby I’ve ever seen!” The woman walks to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: ”The driver just insulted me!” The man says: ”You go up there and tell him off. Go on, I’ll hold your monkey for you.”

2. ”I went to the zoo the other day, there was only one dog in it, it was a shitzu.”

3. ”Dyslexic man walks into a bra”

4. A young blonde woman is distraught because she fears her husband is having an affair, so she goes to a gun shop and buys a handgun. The next day she comes home to find her husband in bed with a beautiful redhead. She grabs the gun and holds it to her own head. The husband jumps out of bed, begging and pleading with her not to shoot herself. Hysterically the blonde responds to the husband, ”Shut up…you’re next!”

5. A classic Tommy Cooper gag ”I said to the Gym instructor “Can you teach me to do the splits?” He said, ”How flexible are you?” I said, ”I can’t make Tuesdays”, was fifth.

6. Police arrested two kids yesterday, one was drinking battery acid, the other was eating fireworks. They charged one – and let the other one off.

7. Two aerials meet on a roof – fall in love – get married. The ceremony was rubbish – but the reception was brilliant.

8. Another one was: Doc, I can’t stop singing the ‘Green Green Grass of Home’. He said: ‘That sounds like Tom Jones syndrome’. ‘Is it common?’I asked. ‘It’s not unusual’ he replied.

9. I’m on a whiskey diet. I’ve lost three days already.

10. A man walks into a bar with a roll of tarmac under his arm and says: ”Pint please, and one for the road.”

If you’re still not laughing, you should go to a doctor.  This is all the medicine I have for today. 

I hope you’ve enjoyed it! 

Share something funny today with someone you love and help make the world a healthier place!

A day without laughter is a day wasted.
