One of my favorite things to do is to make my wife laugh.  I like to see humor in every situation.  My ravings here seem to be rather negative lately.

My humor is take the situation to a limit.  One example; after our previous pastor commented that the church is free that we don't charge for communion; I manufactured a "church" where the communion was charged for by the flavor of it (rice cakes & water - $1; steak & wine - $10); where the pews in the back were priced like the box seats in baseball games & the pews up front were like the bleachers; where pillows & reclining seats were extra but folding chairs were less.

I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose. ~Woody Allen
Even if there is nothing to laugh about, laugh on credit.
A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book. ~Irish Proverb
Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on. ~Bob Newhart
Seven days without laughter makes one weak. ~Mort Walker
A laugh is a smile that bursts. ~Mary H. Waldrip

LAUGHTER, (n) An interior convulsion, producing a distortion of the features and accompanied by inarticulate noises. It is infectious and, though intermittent, incurable. Liability to attacks of laughter is one of the characteristics distinguishing man from the animals -- these being not only inaccessible to the provocation of his example, but impregnable to the microbes having original jurisdiction in bestowal of the disease. Whether laughter could be imparted to animals by inoculation from the human patient is a question that has not been answered by experimentation. Dr. Meir Witchell holds that the infection character of laughter is due to the instantaneous fermentation of sputa diffused in a spray. From this peculiarity he names the disorder Convulsio spargens.
