What's So Funny ?
Laughter is good for the body, soul, and mind. I guess those who don't laugh much are wound rather tight. I don't blame those comedians for not performing at colleges. Chill, kids - it's just a joke. Now, what do hyenas find so funny...?

I'm constantly amazed at the parallels in our lives (yours and mine). My mother was a strict disciplinarian when we were younger too and my older brother Often came out on the short end, but with humor, I deflected some of the wrath. Good piece Stephen.

It would be comforting knowing that humankind could find the doorway into a child's sense of wonder and be stimulated to laugh freely without issue of any kind.

Ah, I too love laughing baby videos ... and laughing babies. I've been told I should be a stand-up comic. The idea is absurd; I can tell a funny story and come back with a funny comment, but to carry through a performance. No way.. And, like you, I would also throw-up on my shoes.

I often think it's plain old excitement.So much is new and great to babies, isn't it?

Puking on your shoes would probably have gotten some laughs.

LOVED the laughing babies video!! Has anyone found out why laughing (like yawning) is contagious?

my siblings and I were blessed with a forgiving and loving mother- but our father was judgemental beyond reason. Unfortunately our mother died at the young age of 65 and our dad lived to be almost 95. Only the good die young. I must admit my wacko sense of humor has kept me sane! Cheers! and laugh on baby!

Laugher is the best medicine. Unless you have diarrhea. I think it would be a lot better of a world if we could all set aside our differences and have a nice laugh. It would make for boring headlines but it sure would be nicer to see that another mass shooting. Take care.

I'm sitting here grinning ear to ear after watching the video. I remember the one with the dad tearing up a piece of paper first came out shortly after my boss became a first-time father. I emailed the clip to him, telling him he needn't worry about buying expensive toys. A piece of paper would do just fine.

We take ourselves to seriously and back ourselves into a corner and then we start fighting. Yes, we need to lighten up.

I'm not good with babies, but my life in the classroom is a whole lot easier because I can sense when and how to make my students laugh.

My children laughed a lot. They laughed at silly songs I sang to them and the way I helped them clap their hands. Then they talked and giggled. Somehow they had their own jokes. Being funny and being a stand up comic are two different things. On stage, one needs a well-honed routine. Love, Janie

Enjoyed! Thanks for that. Have you seen the practice of deliberate laughing in order to feel better? There are people who will go in front of a group and lead this exercise. Before long the fake laughter becomes real and actually does make you feel better. Amazing how contagious it is and the endorphins it releases.

I love the video--I could listen to that laughter all day. I Also think that you would have made a great stand up comedian!

What wonderful joy there is in that laughter. Maybe it is there is lot they don't know-- that we do, sadly. Or maybe they are just closer to the bliss that book ends this life. Nice post-Delightful to see.

I think sometimes the baby is frightened and laughs as a release. At least that is true in some of these videos that I see. Regardless, a baby laughing is food for the soul.

I've often wondered why, when I do something stupid, it's just stupid. But when Kevin James does something stupid, it's funny. Laughter is a mysterious thing.

There is often a fine line between what is funny and what is offensive, it must be an especially difficult time to be a comedian. Chris Rock rocks!!

We are made in the image of G-d, and G-d has a sense of humor. Only a Creator with a sense of humor could have made ostriches and the platypus.

I'm a great believer in a sense of humor. Ever since watching Carol Burnett when growing up, I've loved clever comedians. At home, I joke a lot. I also put lots of funny pics & vids on my FB page to entertain people. In this day and age, laughter is precious.

Thanks. I needed this post and the ensuing laughter. We're all prone to laughter, if only we'd permit ourselves to go there. Parents need to laugh in front of and with their kids too. And stand up comedy is something I'd never have enough layers of skin for.

I so agree with you. Humor has gotten me through the darkest times in life and I love to laugh. It's in my DNA. Ray is natural and I've told him he should have done stand up because he's quick and just too funny. I laugh daily. Must be the artist/comedy thing about you two..lol

Hey, if I took a dump in my britches, knowing somebody was gonna clean me up, I'd laugh too.

My wife laughs at me quite a lot. Sigh.

There's nothing more deliciously infectious as a laughing baby.

People do need to chill and take a pill. I find people get so bent out of shape from something that is just not that important when compared to something that is..like a death of a loved one. Even then, death can be funny. I can find humour in almost anything. I bet Foster Brooks would never make it now because he always played a drunk but, to me, he was one of the funniest at the Roasts. Young people get so upset and offended but I just think the people who are so politically correct are looking for ways to be offended.
