Comedy Corner #2

Continuing my new tradition of weekly posts featuring funny jokes and videos from around the web, I’m sharing three things that make me laugh.  As I’ve blogged about before, laughter is one of many tools I use to survive pain and fatigue from: my neuromuscular autoimmune disease (Myasthenia Gravis), Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder, and Asthma. I explained the science of laughter and how the physical act of laughing releases endorphins, also known as the “feel good hormones.”  We’ve been having a conversation on Facebook where I asked readers what makes you laugh.  I’ve heard so many interesting answers from people with a wide variety of illnesses ranging from autocorrect mistakes to raising teenagers.  You can join us there.

1.  Mom Teaching Two-Year Old About Strangers

So this video has gone viral.  A mom tries to teach her adorable two-year old girl not to talk to strangers.   I’ve watched four times already.   I highly recommend this video for any bad day.

 2.  Huxtables Celebrate Grandparents’ 49th Anniversary (The Cosby Show)

This is my favorite Cosby episode.  I love little Rudy Huxtable’s singing and the eighties clothes.

3.  Carol Burnett Sketch-“Wrong Number”

She’s one of my all-time favorite comediennes.  This sketch is a classic.

3b.  Comparison: Dave Chapelle’s “When Keepin’ It Real Goes Wrong”

I feel like comedian Chapelle’s sketch has an element that reminds me of Burnett’s Wrong Number.  This one also always cracks me up!
