Day 55 and the jokes are getting less. Over the weekend I realised that I get links and videos, but it is mostly about the virus or another conspiracy theory. Fortunately there are people not overwhelmed by the situation who sends me videos of leopards, and a few other I will share below. On Facebook it seems people are having more and more “sense-of-humour-failures.”

But this morning I think I need a few good laughs!

Why not listen to the Gezoem van die Bye?

“Laugh as much as possible, always laugh. It’s the sweetest thing one can do for oneself & one’s fellow human beings.”
–Maya Angelou

“A good laugh makes any interview, or any conversation, so much better.”
–Barbara Walters

“He who laughs, lasts.”
–Mary Pettibone Poole

“A good laugh overcomes more difficulties and dissipates more dark clouds than any other one thing.”
–Laura Ingalls Wilder

“There is nothing like a gleam of humor to reassure you that a fellow human being is ticking inside a strange face.”
–Eva Hoffman

“Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.”
–Bill Cosby

Quotes from here.

Humour is interesting and entertaining and a stress reliever.. My humour lies where logic breaks down. I love saying to somebody with a cough:  “Be careful of that cough! My grandma coughed just like that 3 days before the cupboard fell on her.” Where is the logic in that?

My Chihuahua is named Chutney. I love chutney – the dog and the condiment. The most famous chutney in the world is Mrs Ball’s chutney.  And that is my neutered Chihuahua Misses Balls! That is my humour.

Other people like slapstick, I cannot stand it! Few people understand my humour. Which is fine, because I do understand it and enjoy the company of a few people who do understand my kind of humour.

After all, there are 3 kinds of people in the world – those that can count and those that cannot!

Whatever makes you laugh, find it somewhere and laugh, because laughter is the best medicine, after and apple a day! And if we stop laughing, then we are in a bad spot.

Here are two videos I loved:

This one is about Namibia, a very special place on earth that I dream of visiting on a very extended tour. Until the day I can do this, this was most entertaining.

This video is about the Corona and I have many questions about some of his statements. Then, every new idea was unpopular until it became common wisdom. What I do like about the video is how systems, holism and inter-connectedness of everything is an underlying them. I also love how he looks at life and especially death. I have always said that death is as part of life as birth. When he speaks about life and death and there is a poetry that kept me captivated.
