What Makes You Laugh?

As I write blogs, check comments, look at my stats and check my followers I often wonder if I’m really making people laugh? How many people read a story and never come back because they don’t find me funny?  Perhaps a lot.  Perhaps very few.  Obviously not the same thing makes everyone laugh, let’s face it, what fun would that be? 

I started thinking about what really makes me laugh (yes, I know it’s almost everything) and had to go back into my memory banks and archives to find a few things that make me laugh, sometimes uncontrollably.  Let’s see if the same things make us laugh.

This cartoon has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. In fact, when I was married we bought the VHS tape that had this on it.  I lost the tape in the divorce, I’m still upset about that.  I actually was never a huge Bugs Bunny fan either, go figure.

I’m also not a huge monkey fan but this picture makes me smile.  I’m not positive where I got it but I think it showed up in a card I received from a roommate once which means I’ve been dragging it around for years, I bet I still have the card from her somewhere too.

This cartoon came to me in 2003 and it’s still getting mileage today.  There has never been a time I’ve looked at this and haven’t laughed.  Such a classic. 

Favorite cartoon movie scene.  I actually use the line “what do you want me to do, dress and drag and do the hula” quite often.

I also enjoy Ren and Stimpy; however, could not find a clip of Ren being allergic to Stimpy which is my favorite.

Hopefully these remind you of some of your go-tos for laughter.  If not, you can borrow some of mine if you want.

  1. I laugh at a million things and mainly at myself, but your blog made me remember something that always makes me laugh. It is a scene in the movie, Trains, Planes and Automobiles. It is the scene where John Candy and Steve Martin wake up together in the same motel bed. It starts when Steve asks John where his hand is. I’m chuckling now!

    1. That is such a classic movie. I like the part where John Candy makes the drinking motion with his hand because the other car was telling them they were going the wrong way. So many good parts in that one.

      1. You know it! How about the lady at the rental counter. Classic response to a rant. You also made me think about the Princess Bride. The drinking poison scene is my favorite, but there are many wonderful laughs in that movie.
