Laughter Therapy 05-13-19

How often do I get a card from a good friend that, in addition to their well-wishes, contains a great joke? So perfect to begin our laughter therapy.

This was written by a stand-up comic: “My wife says I’m a hypochondriac.”


“True… and my last two doctors filed restraining orders, but my point is, I’ve logged my fair share of hours on WebMD and I’ve yet to find a single ailment cured by laughter. Now, I mention this because I fear H.M.O.’s getting on this Laughter/Medicine band wagon and then comedy clubs being filled with sick people arguing over the co-pay on a cover charge and a two-drink minimum!”

Did you have a wonderful Mother’s Day celebration? Although gone from planet Earth many years, I still so feel my mother’s presence on this day. She was a fantastic, talented, loving human being. I am so grateful for all the gifts she gave me of how to live a useful, giving life!

For one of her favorite jokes: A man asked an American Indian what his wife’s name is. He replied, ”She is called Five Horses.” The man replied, “That is an unusual name for a wife. What does it mean?”

…sure you are ready for this?

“It means: Nag…Nag…Nag…Nag…Nag!!”

Had lunch last week with some friends from Honokaa, and yes, they were telling jokes like crazy. Here’s one of my favorites: Maria was visiting her boyfriend, Manny, who had just brought home two pit bulls. She asked Manny what there names were.

He replied, “dis one is Casio, dat one is Rolex.”

Maria, with some surprise on her face, asks: “How come you pick those names, Manny?”

Manny rolls his eyes and says, “Babe, day watch dogs, OK?”

I may already be in trouble, but I gotta close with these. Two ______ were sitting on a bench in the late evening talking, and one says to the other: “Eh, wats you tink is mo far away: Florida or da moon?”

The other man turns and says,”Brah, no ack so dumb…you tink you can see Florida?”

Getting close to the end today… Whenever I hear about a ‘peace-keeping force’, I wonder, if they’re so interested in peace, why do they use force?

My friend’s watch stopped — was he down a quartz?


Is everything really alike in Florida? YEP…everything is in the 80s: The temperature…the ages…and the IQs. Whoops…now I am in trouble!

Some people see things that are and ask ‘Why?’ Some people dream of things that never were and ask,“Why not?” Most people have to go to work and have no time for such nonsense! Be Well..Be Happy..Aloha..a hui hou.
