Laws of Laughter (LOL)
1 HUMOR IS INCLUSIVE.
promotes equality and leads to international peace -- any mouth-breather can do it.
2 HUMOR IS HONEST.
You can't lie and laugh at the same time (Residents of the White House believe themselves exempt from this law. It's a big fat lie.)
3 LAUGHTER GIVES YOU A PASSPORT TO THE UNTIED STATES.
It untangles you from the ranks of the terminally tight and rigidly right.
4 HUMOR GIVES YOU MENTAL BREAKTHROUGHS INSTEAD OF BREAKDOWNS.
It keeps you out of crowded psych wards. Your voices get along better.
5 LAUGHTER IS GOOD FOR TISSUE TURGOR.
Consider it a free facelift. Call it Bozo botox.
6 HUMOR IS ANALGESIC.
It makes you less of a pain.
7 LAUGHTER PROMOTES FITNESS.
8 LAUGHTER IS LAXATIVE.
It's safe and gentle enough to be taken in substantial doses in polite company.
9 HUMOR IS ALCHEMY.
It magically transforms the surface tension of negativity from stickum to soap.
10 HUMOR PROMOTES COMMUNITY.
People who laugh together stay together. People who don't laugh together get mad and form political parties.
11 HUMOR IS AN ORAL THERMOMETER FOR FRIENDSHIPS.
You don't laugh with people you don't like. You don't eat with them either.
12 HUMOR IS A PARADOX.
It's better to have laughed and lost than never to have laughed at all. Or not.
