• Laugh! It’s Good For You. Show Those Pearly Whites

  • girl-31148_640It’s time to get ready for Global Belly Laugh Day. We aren’t really kidding, January 24 has been named Global Belly Laugh Day.

    We all know how good it feels to laugh, but exactly why does it make us so healthy and happy?

    Having a good chuckle causes the tissue lining our blood vessels to expand increase blood flow.  This makes us feel more positive, boosts our immune systems, increases pain tolerance and generally just makes us feel happier and more energetic!

    Even just looking forward to something in advance has similar positive affects as the act itself!   It reduces stress and increases chemicals that help relaxation.

    In honor of this upcoming humor day we are going to post for your some jokes which we hope will at least make you smile.

    These come from the Reader’s Digest jokes.

    gorilla-34150_640When a zoo’s gorilla dies, the zookeeper hires an actor to don a costume and act like an ape until the zoo can get another one.

    In the cage, the actor makes faces, swings around, and draws a huge crowd. He then crawls across a partition and atop the lion’s cage, infuriating the animal. But the actor stays in character—until he loses his grip and falls into the lion’s cage.

    Terrified, the actor shouts, “Help! Help me!” Too late. The lion pounces, opens its massive jaws, and whispers, “Shut up! Do you want to get us both fired?!”


    animal-160760_640A man is driving down the highway when he sees a shipping truck wrecked on the side of the road, and 25 penguins waddling around outside it. He pulls over and the truck driver tells him, “Quick! You’ve gotta take these birds to the zoo while I wait for AAA!” The man agrees and drives off with the penguins.

    After fixing his vehicle, the truck driver heads over to the zoo to make sure the penguins made it safely. There’s no sign of them. The truck driver panics and starts scouring the town for his missing penguins. An hour later he passes by the local cinema, when who does he see leaving the theater but the guy who said he’d help him, 25 penguins still in tow.

    “What happened!” the truck driver screams. “I told you to take them to the zoo!”

    “I did,” the man answers. “But I had a little money left over, so I thought I’d take them to a movie too.”


    dog-40122_640The dogs next door get a little noisy, so one day somebody called animal control to complain. When the officers arrived, I heard my neighbor tell them, “Hey, dogs bark. It’s human nature.”
