LOL: Laughter Is Good For You

By Luanne Stevenson, published on Jun 22, 2011

...interpreting body language; the psychology behind advertising; group dynamics and racism; aggression and crime; problem solving; individual identity; grieving; Forensic Psychology; profiling; the list is endless!

One topic that I’ve always found fascinating is how individuals can use humor for their own benefit.

“You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humor in anything-even poverty-you can survive it.”~ Bill Cosby

Humor can be used in all kinds of situations. It can be a way of persuading or improving social connections; it... (more)

Grandma’s Teeth in the Bathroom had Eyes!

By charlie nitric, published on Jun 17, 2011

She was the sweetest, most adorable grandmother a little boy could ever wish for. But seriously, couldn’t she have kept those dentures soaking in a glass next to her bed? Nope! Not my funny grandma. For some odd reason, she wanted her pearly whites to nestle overnight in a drinking glass upon a sink in the upstairs bathroom.

The bathroom sat between my room and her temporary room, with my parent’s slumber zone across from us. On the other side of my bedroom wall, where my head and bed rested, grandma’s teeth lurked only 5-feet away. More disturbing, is the fact that she set the false... (more)

BELTS

By mantra lotus, published on Mar 19, 2011

I don't question why I am this "Way".. I used too, though.

I would insanely agonize over my so called "sickness" that's what "he" called it. That's what "she" hollered in the numerous high-pitched cell phone messages.

"We love you...We just want you to get help."

"Help for what?" I laughed...

"Is it really the end of the world, because I like belts?"

"Okay, I admit it! I am saving myself from damnation and I wanna go to Heaven! I confess my sins to my Lord and Savior" (With fingerprint spit tears down my cheeks) I plead. "I wanna be saved"...(on my knees... (more)

In the Pursuit of the Ultimate Ugliness

By Ed Attanasio, published on Mar 4, 2011

Some people have called our Chihuahua mix Ratdog ugly, but others say he’s endearing. There is a very fine line between gorgeous and hideous. Just look at some super models without makeup. My publisher Susan suggested that I enter Ratdog in the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest, held every year during the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma. This year is their 23rd annual and the first prize is $1,000, which comes with the coveted Ugly Trophy and a year-round modeling contract from House of Dog (which also comes with another $1,000!) It’s Ratdog’s chance to earn some money to pay us back for all the vet... (more)

Love Is Funny

By Deborah Horton, published on Dec 14, 2010

Over the years, I have found that a little humor goes a long way. If you are in a relationship with someone who can make you laugh, you truly have something that can last a lifetime.

Most women I know if you ask them what they look for in a relationship, one of the first things they will say is a sense of humor. Someone who can make you laugh, who can make you smile, who can make your heart smile, that is someone with whom most women can build a lifetime relationship. Laughter truly is the bed medicine and in a relationship it can be like an elixir of long lasting life.

The Big Bang Theory Recap: The Alien Parasite Hypothesis

By The Tweeting Quill, published on Dec 13, 2010

Things in The Big Bang Theory turned the heat up — in the most interesting way possible. In this episode, The Alien Parasite Hypothesis, Amy Fowler (Mayim Bialik) meets Penny’s ex Zack (Brian Smith) and experiences incoherent speech, among other symptoms.

After an analysis participated on by Sheldon (Jim Parsons), no less, Amy concludes that she is sexually attracted to Zack. Sheldon refuses to accept this and would rather believe the possibility of an alien parasite. Amy accuses him of being jealous and he storms out. If this was true, then it’s probably the first time Sheldon showed... (more)

3 Xmas Party Xploits

By Glenn T, published on Dec 10, 2010

There is perhaps no single event more threatening to one’s continued employment than the office Christmas party. This seemingly benign or even joyful event, which ostensibly brings co-workers together to celebrate the holiday season, absent from the pressures of the workplace, couldn’t be further from its intended device. Whereas the idea is to remove the hierarchies, formalities and otherwise awkward deference of working relationships in furtherance of a fraternal atmosphere, it ends up being an exercise in pretending to do the same, while being exceptionally careful to not... (more)

Piggly Wiggly

By Frank - icare2be, published on Dec 6, 2010

...How alike we are. Piggly Wiggly a wallowing in the mud. A pig and me. Piggly Wiggly a wallowing we will go. He in mud, and I in darkness. Piggly Wiggly just a wallowing all day long.

Originally written: January 24, 1996

This ditty started out as a frolic and a bit of humor.. Then, for some reason it turned introspective. I do not know why it took the turn it did. The words just flowed from my mind onto the page. It was as if the poem was already written before I put my fountain pen to the page of my journal. This has happened several times to me. It is always a... (more)
