Curriculum for cracking up

Original post made by Sierra Rhodes on Jun 27, 2013

Welcome to the inaugural post of LOL (Lessons on Laughter). They say that laughter is the best medicine, and my aim is to prescribe and dole out dosages of the stuff like hospitals hand out Vicodin. This venue isn't just for laughter though--no, I also aim to induce more sophisticated fare such as the chortle, giggle, chuckle, snicker, guffaw, and perhaps the occasional wheezing from laughing too hard. If you have no sense of humor, this section is probably not for you, and may cause bouts of confusion, dizziness, nausea and/or frowny faces.

To swear myself into this honorable position, I promise to be tastefully irreverent and indiscriminately full of mockery--a crusader on a quest for the embarrassing, the clever, the almost Darwin awards, and any video of a cat chasing a laser pointer. I solemnly swear on Monty Python and Mel Brooks that I will uphold my mission to bring silliness to the masses to the best of my ability. So please, Ladies and Gentlemen, leave grumpy faces and Debbie Downers at the metaphorical door, and take your medicine.

Hooray for humor! It'll be a very welcome addition to the often dreary, sometimes downright sociopathic commentary on this board -- and I'll just bet you have a sister named Dusty.
