Laugh every day!

It was a couple months ago that I was reading the annual "humor issue" of Readers Digest at work. It had the cutest comments from kids! It was then that I decided that i need to laugh at least once every day of my life. Here are some of my favorites. Hope you find them as funny as I did...


  • Driving with my two young boys to a funeral, I tried to prepare them by talking about burial and what we believe happens after death. The boys behaved well during the service. But at the grave site, I discovered my explanations weren't as thorough as I'd thought. In a loud voice my four year old son asked, "Mom?" "Yes" I whispered. "Whats in the box?"


  • A family was celebrating their daughter's fifth birthday at a local restaurant when the little girl's father noticed her looking sadly at a moose head on the wall. Someone had placed a party had on its head. Her father knelt beside her and explained why some people hunt animals. "I know all that." the child sobbed. "But why did they have to shoot him at his birthday party?"


  • On the last night of our child-birth classes our teacher took us to see the maternity center. We were gathered by the door when a woman, clearly in labor, and her nervous husband came rushing in. When he saw our group of pregnant women, he panicked: "Oh my God. Look at the size of that line!"

Last but not least...


  • A woman from our office brought in her new bundle of joy along with her seven year old son. Everyone gathered around the baby, and the little boy asked, "Mommy, can I have some money to buy a soda?" "What do you say?" she said. He replied, "You're thin and beautiful." The woman reached into her purse and gave her son the money.

Kids make the greatest comments. We had a movie day on Halloween and I had 4 different videos that the kids could choose from. I told them that we were going to vote for a movie and one of the little boys raised his hand and yelled excitedly, "I vote for John McCain!"

What a good idea. A laugh a day will really help the whole world. These are funny. I think the last one topped the others also. Thin and beautiful would work for me!
