Don’t Sit on Cliffs

“Laughter is the best medicine.”

It is said Proverbs 17:22 is the earliest example of this adage: “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

People have also attributed the origin of this phrase to the American publisher and humor writer Bennett Cerf.

No matter, though. It is absolute truth – there is nothing better for the body and soul than a good belly laugh, a guffaw, a chuckle, or a sniggering. Combined with a snort or eye roll, of course.

With the current state of affairs around the world, I though it might benefit us all to have a few laughs today.

So, here goes. Enjoy!

(And when you’re done, let me know if any of the memes or jokes provided a hearty laugh. Will it be the same as mine?)

    Thanks for starting my day with a laugh, Mary. These are all good, but the baby on the phone had me laughing out loud.

    Here’s hoping you have a great rest of the week.

  2. Laughter is one of the reasons snowbirds go south – spend time with people your same age and laugh a lot. That is why it was hard for us to head home two weeks early and miss all that laughter. So, thank you for sharing, and my favorites were the baby and the coffee. Stay safe.

      Sorry you are missing your snowbird laughter, Judy. We’ll all be making up for lost friendships and laughs once we’re in a safer place.

      My mom always said that drinking coffee made her regular, so that was one of my favorites. However, the one that truly made me laugh involved someone’s inability to bend. Ha!

    The ‘bunny ears’ and ‘Boss I need a raise.’ How do people think of these?! Much needed, Mary.

      The baptism baby seems to be a popular one. Mr. Tin Man cracked me up the most, probably because I feel like him sometimes – stiff and unbending! 😁

    The tin man in yoga class got me started with lingering chuckle continued by the church drawing – so honest! I’d seen the don’t sit on cliffs one before, and it’s still funny. Being a Star Trek fan, I greatly appreciated the android phone. I love silly humor from someone we normally see in serious mode. Maybe that’s why I like to watch ST bloopers. Thanks for the laughs!

      The tin man was my favorite too. I remember sitting in church when I was very young, wondering when it would end and we could go home. I totally get where that kid was coming from, but thankfully I’ve changed my mind since then.

        I remember drawing a lot of pictures in church when I was 4. Maybe that’s why I like art so much. 🙂

    Thanks for the laughs, Mary. The first photo – the one with the dog and cat could have been my dog and cat from many years ago. We had an Akita and a flame-point Siamese. The cat loved the dog and the dog tolerated the cat. The cat got as close to the dog as she would allow him to – even curling up on her head while she slept.
