Have A Laugh

Buddhist Monk was driving in India when suddenly a dog crosses the road. The car hit and killed the dog. The Buddhist Monk looked around and seeing a temple, went to knock on the door. A monk opened the door. The first monk said: “I’m terribly sorry, but my karma ran over your dogma.”


During the service, the pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for prayers which had been answered.  A lady stood up and came forward. She said, “I have a reason to thank the Lord. Two months ago, my husband, Jim, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn’t know if they could help him.”

You could hear an audible gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Jim experienced. She continued, “Jim was unable to hold me or the children and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation. They were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Jim’s scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in place.”

Again, the men in the Congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Jim. She continued, “Now, Jim is out of the hospital and the doctor’s say, with time, his scrotum should recover completely.” All the men sighed with relief.
The pastor rose and tentatively asked if any one else had anything to say.  A man rose and walked slowly to the podium.

He said, “I’m Jim and I would like to tell my wife, the word is ‘sternum.”


My son, Mitchell, who is in kindergarten, practices spelling with magnetic letters on the refrigerator: cat, dog, dad, and mom have been proudly displayed for all to see. One morning while getting ready for the day, Mitchell bounded into the room with his arms outstretched. In his hands were three magnetic letters: “G”-“O”-“D.” “Look what I spelled, Mom!” Mitch exclaimed, a proud smile on his face.

“That’s wonderful!” I praised him. “Now go put them on the fridge so Dad can see when he gets home tonight.” That Catholic education is certainly having an impact, I thought, happily. Just then, a little voice called from the kitchen. “Mom? How do you spell ‘zilla?'”

Mood Enhancer

All of us have our bad moods. There’s no denying or escaping that fact. There is no way that anyone can be happy and calm and chatty and friendly 24/7, 365 day a year. That is just not humanly possible. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying and being a dick. Call them on that bluff, pull them down to the floor and punch them in the eye. I hate big liars! We all have our good days and bad days and sometimes we have a bad day in which we have a bad mood throughout the day! It’s rare for me but it does happen once in a while.

So what does one do when one is in a bad mood? I usually find that it is best to let that mood run it’s course, let the boo hoos out and not to rush things in any kind of haste. You must try and let it naturally finish it’s little fury and wait for the better feelings to take over as naturally as possible. It’s always best and besides, we are human and it is a human feeling and a human process and it’s only natural to be like that once in a while. That’s what I do – I let myself have that bad mood, try not to let others be too affected by it and when it is done, I’m back to my friendly, funny self.

What does help to speed up the process is my fav music, my fav tv shows or some funny movie or tv series. There are some that are guaranteed to make me laugh and come out of a funk. Or even someone, a friendly usually, cracking a really funny joke at the right time can bring me out of that foul mood and laughing in no time. That’s usually a memorable moment when it happens.

What about you guys?
