To continue my uplifting series, I want you to go to You Tube and watch Fluffy goes to India. Laughter is every bit as important as hugging and is one of the only ways to counterbalance the doom and gloom spewing from CNN, MSNBC and Fox.
YouTube is a repository of some of the best humor in the world. While Fluffy is my favorite, there are a host of other comedians that will appeal to almost everyone. Try clicking on Drybar and feast on the content. LOL is great if you are texting but let’s see if we can’t get you actually laughing out loud a minimum of 15 minutes a day. I guarantee you’ll feel better and want to share your laughter with others.
When I was a kid, my father played poker every Tuesday night. When the game was at my house, I would hideaway at the top of the stairs and listen to my father and his friends tell hilarious jokes, often with an old world, Yiddish accent. Nine out of ten times I would be caught as I broke out into hysterical laughter. Last night I discovered old Jews telling jokeson YouTube which brought back memories of the poker game with my father, Leo , Cecil, and Sheldon, seated around the table telling jokes and me almost wetting my pants.
Then there were my father’s records. The jokes were off-color by today’s standards but outrageous in the 60s. There were recordings from Moms Mabley and Red Foxx. On my favorite album the comedian sang, “Show me a home where the buffalo roam and I’ll show you a home full of SHIT.” Talk about LOL, I laughed until it hurt.
So, exercise your laughter with me every day and see if it will lift our spirits. Share your favorites with me and I’ll share mine with you.
