I joined in last week and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was great to be a part of a ‘community’ I was, as you can imagine ecstatic to see Coleen chose my post to be featured along with others from their blogs from the prompt “Strength”. You can read my post here!
This week’s inspirational word is “Comedy”.
Don’t Make Me Laugh!
Comedy is a hilarious concept but my sense of humour is often a mix of dry, silly, childish and sometimes sarcasm! Sorry .. but there you have it!
I love to laugh but it takes a lot for me to crack a smile! Don’t get me wrong! I’m not a miserable sod but I don’t find things funnily easily!
For me, it’s silly humour that gets me! I was away one weekend in the caravan in a field! We were playing a game with my fiancé and his family a few friends. The game was called Articulate. You have to describe the word on the card without saying any part of it! Well it was my 9-year-old son’s turn and with the help of his teenage sister was having his turn:
Son – “Ooh it was on Britain’s Got Talent! … The man dressed up … Ooh!… and was in it! … He was an alien! ….It’s in Dr Who! A robot in Dr Who! … Oh, Come on! ”
We all looked really puzzled at each other as the clue was nature … I answered the only thing I could think of …
Me – “Dalek?’
Son – He looks at the card and nods… “Yes!”
Daughter – “What the hell! No! It’s Garlic!”
Everyone was in hysterics at my little man’s mistake! Now that had me in absolute stitches! My poor son made me almost pee my pants but that little innocent boy at his expense made me laugh so hard! He did laugh at himself once he realised but oh my! It was that gut aching laughter that hurts your side! you can feel it rise right under your ribs! The more you laugh the more it hurts, you laugh so hard you start to grunt like a pig and it keeps happening more the more you try to stop it! It’s the kind of laughter that a few moments after composing yourself you right there again! Snorting with everyone laughing at you! That memory will stay with us all for years because it was such an innocent mistake but so so funny!
That is my kind of humour! Silly, stupid moments that make you cross your legs so you don’t pee!
Forget the forced comedy on tv shows like ‘Have I Got News for You’ but for me, I love silly immature comedy like ‘Celebrity Juice!’
Walt Disney was right with his quote …
“That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up!”
What makes you laugh? What are you favourite shows on TV you just have to watch? What do you remember that made you laugh so hard you had to run for the loo?
I would love to hear your stories!
