“What a kid I got, I told him about the birds and the bee and he told me about the butcher and my wife.” Rodney Dangerfield
“She said she was approaching forty, and I couldn’t help wondering from what direction.” Bob Hope
“When someone asks you the question, “Are you ticklish”, it doesn’t matter if you say yes or no, cause they’re going to touch you. If someone asks if you’re ticklish and you don’t want to be touched you should something like “I have diarrhea, now don’t touch me cause you’ll make it come out… and yes I’m very ticklish”. Demetri Martin
“I’d marry again if I found a man who had fifteen million dollars, would sign over half to me, and guarantee that he’d be dead within a year.”  Bette Davis
“I have everything I had 20 years ago, only it’s all a little lower.”  Gypsy Rose Lee

Humor is not as easy to write unless you have a knack for it and a funny bone always on call.  A good joke can get me out of a funk any day and since half of this blog is called Mirth, I try to add some occasionally to shift our mood. Hope you enjoy these. Do you have a funny line or two to share?

“Have you ever noticed that the lawyer always smiles more than the client?”  George Carlin

“All I do is eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. There must be more to a cat’s life than that. But I hope not.” Garfield
“How long have you known me, Jack? And you still don’t know how to spell my name.” (Upon receiving a cheque from Jack Buck made out to “Bearer”.) Yogi Berra
“Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while.”  Kin Hubbard
“Good breeding consists of concealing how much we think of ourselves and how little we think of the other person.” Mark Twain
“It is even harder for the average ape to believe that he has descended from man.”  H. L. Mencken

George Carlin’s delivery always had me laughing before the end of his jokes… and sometimes I’d fantasize about what it’d be like to do stand up comedy. I imagined doing Jackie Mason like shtick and all. haha. I don’t know about you, but if there were a skill I could hone to perfection, it would be humor… Go figure.

Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it. Bill Cosby

“A doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn’t pay his bill, so he gave him another six months.” Henny Youngman
“If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic. Lewis Carroll
I do not participate in any sport with ambulances at the bottom of a hill.”  Erma Bombeck
“If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?” Steven Wright

Seriously, this post took very little time to put together. I had the quotes, did the write up in no time, found my Wiki photos and voila!  My basic blog outline stays the same, so I can add to it pretty quickly.  Hope your week had some humor added. Stay Inspired. Have a blessed day and thank you for stopping by! 🙂
*Please bear with me as I continue to catch up on your blogs. Thank you all for your patience! 🙂

    I like laughter so much!

      Same here Julie and it’s never as easy as it looks. So I’m always doffing my cap to professional comedians. 😉

    Laughter is a fuel for a hard day. Thanks for Erma Bombeck and I think I will borrow Steves. Thanks for the tip. You’re awesome

    • 27/01/2013 2:06 pm

      You’re awesome too. TY for the feedback and use what you wish. 🙂

    Still laughing at the “Are you ticklish?’ joke 😆 Mark Twain too…thanks Eliz.

    • 27/01/2013 2:08 pm

      That one got me too… Gross but hysterical too. 😆

    People without humor and especially without self-irony should immediately had awarded highest invalidity pension – seriously I mean it – them one should not be jealous, I believes it must be a really tough life… 🙂 😉

      I hear you! Humor keeps me going… Without it, the world would not be so up for many. We need to laugh a little every day. TY! 🙂

    I spent some time during my talent agent days setting up comedy nights at clubs. Met some great comedians and they helped my son get into that crazy biz. He did stand-up for about 6 years, mostly on the college circuit. When he got engaged his future mother-in-law asked, “So…how long are you going to do this funny business?” We still laugh about that. I’m pretty sure she’s happy he gave it up and has a very good job in sales which requires a good funny bone!

      What a riot and I’m glad he is doing well too. The great part is that he did try it and then when he was ready, moved on… Unless we try something, we’d just never know. TY! 🙂

    Oh Eliz, I’m laughing so hard here. It’s something I do a lot, even at things that are not laughable 🙂

    • 27/01/2013 2:19 pm

      Good for you! You do look like the easy to laugh one… I like a good laugh too. TY! 🙂

    I love to enjoy a good laugh, especially with others! It’s funny to say something a little sad here, but one of the things I miss most is in life is hearing my mother and her sister giggle. My aunt passed away a decade ago, but I can still hear the two sisters share a laugh and I will always cherish that. I do my best to seek out funny movies or anything I know will make me chuckle…it is indeed good for the soul! 🙂 And to land on a happy note, God gave me two beautiful grand-daughters who make me laugh a lot!!

    • 27/01/2013 2:22 pm

      TY for sharing such a wonderful memory… It is a positive because you remember her in such a joyful light… Humor heals too. TY! 🙂

    I especially like the quote from Dimitri Martin about diarrhea. Can’t help that I like good potty jokes

    • 27/01/2013 2:24 pm

      You are not alone on the potty trail 😆 TY!

  9. 26/01/2013 2:07 pm

    I think stand up comedy would be a hoot! Making people laugh gives the laugher and the laughee a good feeling. Nothing wrong with that. 😉

    • 27/01/2013 2:30 pm

      Nothing wrong with it at all, but not so easy to do… TY Gemma! 🙂

    Love that first cartoon strip — maybe she’d gone there to do research for a Sunday School project.

    I love these! Do you mind if I use them?
