Did You Forget To Laugh Today?

"Laugh at the devil and he will flee from thee."

Paying attention to the news and actually caring about life can get a bit depressing at times. We take a beating every single day from the drive by news media, and sometimes we get to the point of information overload. Tuning in is not easy.

The devil wants you to cry. He wants you to give up. He wants to cremate your conscience. He wants you to play that god awful negative Phil Collins song, "I don't care anymore," over and over again.

The last thing the devil wants you to do is laugh.

Please share a video of your favorite comedian, your own joke, a funny movie scene, or funny pictures/artwork, or music.

This post is in memory of Jonathan Winters. May you rest in eternal peace and happiness. Thanks for spreading so much joy and laughter.

THAT clip was so funny! And it's TRUE! Those people THINK in terms of target markets and strategies to reach them. It's the lens through which they view... everything. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTHTZe0...

Deep thoughts

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

Zooamerica... One of my favorite literary quotes ever is from Melville. He says “I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing" So thanks for this thread. I found this clip in another thread and I hope Paul S doesn't mind me adding it here.

I was thinking about

I was thinking about resorting my comedy movie collection today when I noticed I had a movie about "a jerk" The Jerk, a pimp - Doctor Detroit, a drunk - Arthur, and white trash - Joe Dirt.

Well, I tried to be happy.
