As indicated here, in the post before this one, I’m determined to share some laughs on this blog, since I'm often far too serious. (Just ask my kids!!) Also, lately, I think many of us have low spirits, & low spirits are a bummer, even when they are more or less well-earned.
You know what they say about laughter & the best medicine!
So. Here's a short list with some good laughs if you follow the links. I’ll add to it when I get new stuff. I’ll post some funny jokes & names of funny books & movies, too.
- The Perfect Song for these times!!
- Laughing Babies!! (thanks to Straight Goods for this one!!)
- Mission Impossible Squirrel (ditto!)
- NASA satellite gag (from Montreal, I am told) - only 1 minute long
- President Obama says we do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the U.S. (41 seconds)
- Les érections fédérales par Harper (2.24) If you speak French (& even if you don’t!), check out our (Canadian Prime Minister) Stephen Harper repeating (one might even say, harping on) how he doesn’t want any more erections.
- Memory-a spoof by Pam Peterson (great for just about everyone I know!)(3 minutes)
- Bill Hicks on Marketing (2.43) (Lots of swearing; be forewarned!)
- For the Love of Mrs. Brown (8:42) Very funny, very naughty; not for your Mom-in-law....or, well, mine, anyway.
- Tim Conway – The Dentist (3 minutes) Hilarious!!!
- Rick Mercer &Tritium Give-Away Days(1 minute; one of my all-time favourites. Makes me laugh out loud every time!)
- Rick Mercer: Canada Explained (rather out of date now, but still fun & funny, & it does explain some of our Canadian crazinesses) (6:43)
- Rick Mercer Conservative Policy (1 minute) <Rick Mercer’s brilliance is endless, as you’ll see if you spend some time watching him! One of Canada’s national treasures!!>
- Ultimate Dog Tease (1:20) Hilarious!
- Rowan Atkinson - whole series of funny skits!
I’ve recently watched the Naked Gun movies – 3 of them. They’re a hoot!!! I loved the 2 ½ one, made in 1991, & with some great gags on environmental matters. Especially on the energy front! Can’t believe they so clearly understood & articulated so much about the corruption at the heart of the American energy scene way back when! I laughed lots….
P.S. I almost forgot to thank the several friends who have provided the funny stuff!! I sent out a request for some funny items, & several friends came through. Thanks, dudes/dudettes! Please send more!!
P.P.S. In the funny movie dept., I know I used to love, love, love Monty Python films. I think it's about time to watch some of them again! If you don't know them, Google 'em. &/or Google Fawlty Towers. Hilarious skits!!
