Humor is always good medicine.
What makes people laugh?
When people laugh, it makes them more "human" and establishes trust.
Why?

I have noticed the leaders of CPC always keep a straight face.
Wouldn't it be nice to see President Xi just crack up over a joke.
Cut some gas and look at someone else.
The leadership needs to show a sense of humor.
And I find it strange that Chinese people don't get jokes.
Is it culture?
Smile
Joke
Laugh


For me.....
Slap stick like the 3 Stooges. (For some reason, Buddists monks find it funny)
Girls don't understand it (my mother forbade me from watching)
When you think about it.....
Seeing someones eye get poked or getting slapped in the face, why is this funny?
A student gave me a great answer: Its like a "cartoon".

Some people like darker humor, "dead baby jokes":
"Why did the dead baby fall out of the tree"?
Answer: because it was dead

When I see leaders like Trump get elected....
I just cracks me up
How can America elect such a duffis?

Even here on the CD, people come up with the most outragous comments.
Its like....
Where in the universe you came up with that?
If I did not have a sense of humor over some of the posters here....
Keep the sharp objects away from me.

Feel free to share your best jokes, funny experiences and your sense of humor.
Humor is as diverse, as people are.

I used to get a lot of chuckles out of me by reading Nury Vittachy when he was still a writer in Hong Kong. Bill Bryson's travelogues also cause a lot of mirth. And in our forum my hat goes off in special tribute to dostoevskydr who has an inexhaustible supply of humour.

Art Buchwald... Another humorist I read when the International Herald Tribune was still being printed:

Art Buchwald
Quotations


Especially for my buddy UYA:
A bad liver is to a Frenchman what a nervous breakdown is to an American. Everyone has had one and everyone wants to talk about it.


If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.
