Emote This: Laughter

Of all the emotions we've contemplated at Come In Character, it's hard to believe that we've never before considered laughter.

No matter how serious our lives might get at times – what with all the demon slayings, band management troubles, romantic conundrums, and other dilemmas – it's important to make some room for a good chuckle, snort, or guffaw every now and again.

So, what makes you laugh out loud or snicker deep within? A favorite joke? A funny memory? An amusing observation about the human condition? Come on, authors and characters, let it all out! I'm sure we could all use a good laugh or two...

I guess nobody feels like laughing today. How sad.

Well, author, what did you expect? People work on Wednesdays... who wants to laugh while the boss is watching?

Okay, fine, I'll be the first to break the ice. Here's a joke from my childhood...

What do snowmen eat for breakfast?

Okay, Grandma, I'll bite.

What do snowmen eat for breakfast?

Devi Marconi said...

Why, snowflakes, of course!

(Alright, so it's fairly stupid, but what do you expect? I was a corny kid.)

I laugh at silly things that happen. Like last week in a museum I was in an elevator (I hate the things!)waiting for the door to open, complaining about how long it was taking, and wondering to my audience of fellow travelers if we were moving at all. Secretly I was nearing panic.
Finally someone pointed out that the door had opened behind me (we had entered on the other side) and if I'd please move we could all get out. That cracked me up.
I have a friend in art class and we're always getting the giggles. Sketching our teacher etc, It's like being a kid again.

Hehe. That IS kinda funny, Jil. I've done plenty of embarrassing things like that over the years. That's okay, though. Laughing at yourself keeps you young - just look at William Shatner.

Guess I've never found much funny. I seem to have been worried most of the time, about school, being a nobody,getting a boyfriend,getting rid of him.
I guess I laughed sometimes when someone in the band made a really sour note, or when Mavis Sullivan's false eyelashes fell off into her beer.I watched two drunks fighting but their shoes were so slippery they could only push each other around. That was funny.
