Musings: Share A Joke…

02/10/2012

“If you aren’t a naturally happy person, take time each day to cultivate that which brings you happiness.” Madisyn Taylor

Musings: Share A Joke… Send a laugh alert.

A recently hired junior manager at a multinational corporation, Joe X, puts his foot in his mouth…
On Joe’s fifth day at the office, he called the company canteen and ordered a sandwich. It didn’t arrive in 10 minutes as promised. After waiting longer than usual for his lunch order, Joe, already in a bad mood, decided to call the canteen extension… but out of fury and in error, he called the CEO’s private extension.
The following conversation ensued…
Joe: Can you crazy guys send up my lunch?
CEO: Who’s this? You must be crazy!
Do you know who you are talking to?
Joe: No, I don’t care! Where’s my food?
Who the hell am I speaking with…?
CEO: This is Cliff O, the CEO! Who the hell are you?
Joe: Really!? Do you know who you are talking to?
CEO: No. But you’re in deep trouble, Mister. Who are you?
Joe: OK good, see you later! He breathed a sigh of relief as he quietly dropped the phone, and muttered, “Thank God…”

A little humor can go a long way… If your day seems long and trying, take  a moment to find a joke or funny story.  Anything that puts a smile on your face will help shift the mood.

“Learn one joke today. Google “Jokes” if you have to. Share your joke with someone, in return for one back. It’s the little jokes that create a healing perspective for the BIG JOKE that is the mystery our life.” Robert Holden

Musings: Share A Joke… Lilyu runs from a joke.

Tester: Just imagine you’re on the 3rd floor and it has caught fire, so how will you escape?
John: It’s simple. I will stop my imagination!

Our imagination is powerful and humor can help us traverse it; especially when we are struggling with a decision or trying to come up with new ideas.  More below!

“The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible.” David Ogilvy

Musings: Share A Joke… The Absent-minded Professor

A barber, a bald man and an absent minded professor take a journey together. They have to camp overnight, so they decide to take turns watching the luggage. When it’s the barber’s turn, he gets bored, so amuses himself by shaving the head of the professor. When the professor is woken up for his shift, he feels his head, and says “How stupid is that barber? He’s woken up the bald man instead of me!” via Wikipedia

So the next time someone annoys you, or you find your patience meter running low, reach for a joke and watch your day transform from glum to plum. Enjoy it! What about you? What are your thoughts? What does humor add to your life? What type of funny stories do you enjoy? Do you have a joke to share? Do share! Thank you. :-)

*Please bear with me as I catch up on your blogs and commenting… Thank you all for your patience! :-)

Positive Motivation Tip: A good joke can carry us through a long day; learn and share a joke each day.

    I’m not good at remembering jokes (or much else these days, for that matter). I’m more of a spontaneous, stand-up comic sort of person. I just need to stand up more often. 😀
    Always with the great incentives, Elizabeth. Thanks.

    As we watch the daily news and
    listen to all the tragic stories…
    our fingers eventually go to the remote…
    and we find the channel who has this crazy
    little yellow character that lives under the
    sea in a pineapple house…bringing a grin to
    our face and a laugh to our lips…
