5 Links to Laughter

Posted by: Shel 6 Comments

If you’re going to laugh your way to a longer, healthier marriage, you need to know how – and where – to get your laugh on. Here are five options that you might not have been aware of!

1. Laughing groups. Chances are your favorite hobby has a laughing group. I checked out the meetup website for laughing groups, put in my zipcode, and found 6 groups in a 25 mile range. Yoga laughing, hiking laughing, karaoke laughing, outdoor enthusiasts laughing and more. Click on the picture for meetup sites and options.

5 Links to Laughter2. Check out funny pictures on the Make Me Laugh blog. The author takes pictures that are out there, like the one below, and adds some humor to it.

5 Links to Laughter3. All things Bill Cosby. Many only know Bill (yes, we’re on a first name basis) from his 80s sitcom. But his comedy goes way back. And it’s still funny. To check out a sampling of his old comedy routines, click the picture to see 9 that Parade put together. If you like them, you can find plenty more on YouTube.

4. The Best of Herman. LOVE this book. (I also love Herman –  and my husband’s OK with that.)  It is what I send to friends who need a pick-me-up. It’s my go-to when I’m a bit down – I can open it to any page and there’s going to be a smile-inducer there. And I am definitely not above using it as a quick way (it’s like cheating) to get a laugh out of my husband.

5. Funny animals. There is no lack of entertaining animal videos out there. I lost a chunk of my life researching this for you (you’re welcome!). Here is one of the shorter videos I found, but if  this type of Pet TV makes you laugh, there’s plenty to choose from. Once you do an internet search for “funniest animals,” the hard part is deciding which ones not to watch!

  • I never get tired of watching funny animal videos. Recently I saw TVLAND has done a remake of Candid Camera…that show was always good for some laughs.

      I hope they keep the same PG spirit of the show – some of the later prank shows leave a bit (of class!) to be desired. Have a great week, Jill!

  • The dinosaur-and-flamingos picture is great!

      I think I need that for my yard, Maria – I could put it next to my 6′ tall colorful tin rooster!

  • Good grief, what a time suck hahahaha ;). My favorites were the dog playing tennis ball by himself, the dog chasing the shadow of the ball/frisby (whatever it was–I was concentrating on the dog), the cat posing in front of the mirror, but they were all cute.

      Yah – I spent WAY too much time going through the videos. The final decision was based on length as opposed to the best content – but they’re all pretty irresistible.
