“The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating…

…and you finish off as an orgasm.” ~ George Carlin quotes (32nd BYB)

Life without Humor
… is akin to life without rain. We all need a bit of sunshine in our lives. A reason to laugh at something funny or a witty comment. A reason to stretch those 17 muscles. For amongst the clouds of gray, humor comes in as those bursts of light penetrating within. And these few moments indeed can make our day, and our world a better place.

The colors of Humor
… is vast and varied. Like chocolate and sex, some like it dark, whipped or just plain ol’ vanilla. For humor indeed is interpreted by us differently ranging from crude jokes involving blonds & little Timmy, to sophisticated jokes which are punny puns on the language (bad pun intended).

Humor Applied
… is actually simple indeed – all it takes is to have a positive and lighter view of things in life. To see the silver lining behind every dark cloud. To find humor which warms and drives us forward even in the bleakest of time. Miracle turned fact indeed in our modern age that humor indeed heals even what the best doctor and surgeons cannot heal sometimes.

What Humor is Not
… is a bit to ponder upon. Why do some jokes fail? Why do comedians need to gauge their audience before telling jokes? Some jokes… ok… most jokes are generally possibly sensitive to certain parties especially when a certain party is the butt of the joke. Yet we are all a little bit racist, and yet we still laugh at jokes, because a lot of humor pokes fun at real life.

The Best Blessing
… indeed is humor in its truest form. To entertain and to make us laugh. To make conversations lively, engaging and keep us from falling asleep. To poke fun at ourselves and the world at large – not because we can, but because we want everyone to just relax a ‘lil bit more and take a spoonful of sugar every now and then. Humor right down to it, that’s the right medicine that hits the funny button.

So what sort of humor makes you LOL? Or what is the funniest joke you’ve ever had?

  1. YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN TEXAS in JULY WHEN… The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground. The trees are whistling for the dogs. The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance. Hot water now comes out of both taps. You can make sun tea instantly. You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron. The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly. You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car. You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window. You actually burn your hand opening the car door. You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m. Our biggest bicycle wreck fear is, “What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?” You realize that asphalt has a liquid state. The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper. Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs. The cows are giving evaporated milk.

    Stev: LOL. Truth in all things. Liked the seat buckle branding, 2-finger steering & knocked out outside bits best

  2. Humor, or as we spell it in India -“Humour,” is a great blessing indeed, and one that makes our life a bit easier to live than what it would have been without a good laugh.

    Happy BYB Sunday and have a great week ahead!

    Stev: off-topic: Mmm. Actually it’s spelled humour as well here (being a former British colony & all that). Still the advent of internet has spoilt ‘color’ and ‘humor’

    May each & everyone gave a great week ahead laughing til everyone else thinks your nuts are loose! πŸ˜€

  3. I can take all kinds of humour except british, which just make you go “heh”. Now I understand what does dry humour means…..

    Stev: Heh. Make mine a dry martini please.

  4. When it makes a person laugh then it’s good
    For we all need some good old laughing anytime anywhere
    It’s indeed good if we can make people laugh or laugh more ourselves

    Stev: Food for the tired wrinkly soul as always said πŸ˜‰

    Mmm. Agreed…

  5. I love this piece by Carlin. His spin on youth is wasted by the young, I guess. To begin and end in supreme pleasure would be a grand thing.

    I like obvious humor. Human nature humor, I guess. My father is very good at noticing the silly things people do. Part of the fun is that he talks about it and doesn’t care. I think it’s a gift to say what others are thinking or wish they had thought. It blows open our routines.

    Stev: I like that phrase youth is wasted on (by) the young. Also featured in a Robbie Williams song if i’m not mistaken. Would def say that you father’s a very joyful & fun person to be with – shows through the ability to see & notice all the small funny things in life πŸ™‚

  6. Just want to share with you a quote from Mark Twain:

    “Humour is mankind’s greatest blessing.”

    Stev: True true. *nods sagely* I always knew there was a reason for stupid people in the world

    (just kidding! :P)

  7. Nice quote by George Carlin…. ahaha… and finish it off with an orgasm… if life was like that, i’ll love that too… πŸ™‚

    Stev: I wonder what shapes orgasms are. Square? Round? Hexagonal?

  8. hey.. y no updates?busy dating ah? :p

    Stev: off-topic: This should go in the FreeChatZone πŸ˜› – Just swamped! Gah!
