A policeman pulled me over and said, “Do you know why I pulled you over?” I said, “You should really ask a psychic!” (thanks to Nguyen Matos)
A fish swimming upstream hit a wall. “Damn!” he said. – anon (someone obviously too embarassed to admit to coming up with that joke!)
Two women were chatting in the park: “You know, my husband and I were happy for 40 years,” one woman said. “What happened?” her friend asked. Her buddy sighed, “We met.” – From 101 Best Jokes Kindle edition – Various Authors. (PS: I flipped the sexes in the joke from male to female!)
Why bother with humor?! It’s a waste of time right? Not in my view. It makes life light and fun — and it makes guys irresistible and sexy and puts women at ease! Hear that guys?
Most of us tend to take life way too seriously and we lose our sense of humor. But humor isn’t frivolous. Instead, it offers an opportunity to shift out of a rigid mindset and take a different perspective — one that is more open, free, and light. This place of lightness, can be conducive to conducive to problem-solving.
Genuine humor (that’s not deriding others) eliminates boundaries and brings a sense of union with others. Few things are more contagious than laughter (except chicken pox maybe). The sense of self-importance melts away. Rigid ideas fall apart — and a whole new view of the world is possible. Self-deprecation is a wonderful way to ease a tense situation and make friends. In men, its an irresistible quality that women adore.
