“God is a comedian, playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.” Voltaire

Otters, racoons, terriers, squirrels...the list is really endless. What list you might be asking? The animals that God has created that cause people to laugh. The animal kingdom is full of laughable characters. Television is making millions of dollars laughing at the comical nature of our furry friends and foes. Just get on YouTube....there are endless video clips posted just because they are funny.

The Flight of the Conchords, Robin Williams, Patty Findley, Will Ferrell, Steve Nibler singing "The most beautiful girl in the room" in my kitchen, Woody Allen, Steve Martin, John Taggart, you and me, my brother, Paul, chasing a duck around my parents yard, holding a tape recorder trying to get an interview with it to send to my sister in New Zealand, "Horses and Dogs, Dogs and Horses" : this list is just as endless.

Pictures of my kids when they were little. And the VIDEOS!! I have some pretty amazing videos of my kids putting on the funniest shows! The lines from these videos have made it into our families vocabulary: "Because she can't dance!" or "Isn't it raining?" or "And myself and Hannah!!"

I love to laugh and make people laugh. So spread a little cheer today and make someone laugh. It's okay if that someone is YOU!
