I like laughing. No, let me rewrite that…I LOVE laughing. I love a bloody good laugh, absolutely love it. Yes! I do, I bloody love it, absolutely, positively love it and I spend as much time of my day laughing as is reasonable. I love it, I bloody love a good hearty laugh. Laughing is great. I have so many laughter lines that my face looks hideous in candle light. But I don’t care! Why? Because I bloody love a laugh, absolutely love it!
Here is a picture of a man laughing
But we can’t always have a laugh!
“What?” you are asking yourself, “Why can’t we always have a laugh, Henry?” is what you are asking me now and you have every right to ask me that question and I will give you an honest, straight answer. I could try to beat about the bush and deflect your attention to that squirrel behind you that looks like Sting but I will not do that. I will answer your question soon, in fact, I will answer you after I finish this sentence. The reason that you can’t always have a laugh is that we sometimes have other things to do like read an intellectual book or wash your hair over a kitchen sink. I mean, can you imagine if you were reading an intellectual book such as The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and someone saw you laughing…they would think you were mad!!!!!!!!!!!
According to Collins English Dictionary laughter is ‘the sound of people laughing, because they are amused or happy’. I couldn’t have put it better myself. The Oxford English Dictionary says it is ‘the act or sound of laughing’ – this is very wrong as no one ‘acts’ laughter but then the learned types of Oxford are pretty thick.
I love laughing but I don’t laugh as much as I used to partly because I am a lot more intelligent now and partly because many years ago I used to take a shitload of LSD and that stuff makes you laugh at anything, Weetabix, envelopes, Mrs Browns Boys…literally anything.
Laughing is one of the few things that doesn’t see social boundaries or the colour of people’s skin, literally anyone can laugh, poor people (although not as much as rich people), old people, babies, black people, even women, given the right encouragement, can laugh.
As I mentioned earlier, I love a laugh, I really do but I also mentioned that we can’t always have a laugh. This is where I come in. I will joke around and be literally the funniest man you will have ever met but as soon as something serious happens I stop laughing and so should you. So the next time you hear a sad story or you see someone crying, DO NOT laugh.
I am sure you’ll agree that this has been a very informative blog entry and I’m sure you feel that you haven’t just wasted 4 or 5 minutes (depending on how fast you can read) of your life. So if you know anyone who is constantly laughing, share this post with them and you will have made the world a better place.
