LAUGH THERAPY

Have you noticed that comedians live and work longer than most people? Bob Hope, George Burns, Mel Brooks, Jerry Lewis, Milton Berle, Mel Brooks, Phyllis Diller, Sid Caesar, Dick Van Dyke...
I believe that those people who are able to bring themselves joy as well as give it to others lead healthier, more expansive lives.

How many jokes do you know? Do you share even one joke a week with a family member or friend?
Why not? I suggest you start a joke journal. It will lift your spirit and hopefully those of others as well.

Here's a joke from me:
The Pope arrives at Kennedy Airport in  New York.  He gets picked up by a chauffeur with a black limousine.  He asks the driver if it would be possible for him to take the wheel as he rarely gets an opportunity to drive a car.  The chauffeur could not deny the Pope, so he gets in the back seat as the Pope gets into the front seat. They head down the highway.  The Pope, enjoying this rare moment, puts the petal to the metal and before you know it he's going over 90 MPH.  Sirens.  A police car pulls the limousine over.  The policeman walks up to the darkened window.  The Pope pushes the electric button bringing down the darkened glass and smiles at the officer.  Stunned, the officer says:  "Excuse me, I will be back in a minute."  He returns to his police car and calls the station.
Officer: "Sargent, you are not going to believe who I think I pulled over for speeding.  It's a very important person and I don't know if I should issue a ticket."
Sargent:  "Who is it, the Mayor?"
Officer: " No, more important."
Sargent: "The Governor?....give him a ticket!"
Officer:  "No, it's not the Governor ..I think this car belongs to someone way more important than him!"
Sargent:  "Well who is it?"
Officer:  "I'm not sure, but I can tell you this - he has The Pope as his driver."


How about sending me a joke?

A priest, a doctor and a lawyer were stuck behind a particularly slow group of golfers. After three holes, they complained to the groundskeeper. "Sorry, guys. That's a group of blind firefighters," the man explained. "They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from burning down last year, so we let them play here anytime for free."

"That's so sad," the priest said. "I'll say a special prayer for them tonight."

"Good idea," the doctor agreed. "I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist buddy and see if there's anything he can do for them."

"I guess," the lawyer said. "But why can't they play at night?"
