Image by katerinavulcova from Pixabay

Laughing is a key ingredient to survival. You gotta have a few deeply glorious laughs every now and again. I love a good laugh, honestly we all do. Life was hard before COVID and now it's nearly impossible. And those times when we can let loose the tears because of something funny, can relieve any and all stress.

What I especially love are the laughs attached to a moment or a memory. The laugh that never gets old and you'll still be chuckling about beyond the grave. They are the true life savers. Who can relate? I hope everybody.

Redditoru/29t03jwiesneeded some reasons to smile and guffaw, so they asked:

What was something that you made you laugh uncontrollably?

I've been blessed with many memories. So I have a deep well of hilarity to tap into. Where to begin? Movies, tv shows, school, job, the list goes on...

"Mom whyyyy???"

"When the toddler danced in on her dad's BBC interview. And proceeding to knock out books on her dad's bed, which was made as if it was a desk. And the baby strolling in, finished with the mother SLIDING her way in and hustling the kids out. The toddler shouts "Mom whyyyy" as she is towed out. Love this clip."

I'm Broke

"This needs a smidge of setting up and is rather non-PC... i'm disabled and rely on a wheelchair to get around anything but very short distances. Chatting with two friends over voice chat online... discussion turned to buying something... I replied with "can't afford it, I'm broke."

"Instantly, one of the other two guys said 'of course you are, that's why you're in a wheelchair' 5 minutes later we stopped laughing. not a word was spoken in that time... we just fell about barely able to breathe properly... even now, a couple of years later we still laugh when the story is told."

In my face...

"In a boardroom in New York for a high pressure meeting with a dozen executives. A finance pricing exec had previously messed up a contract with the Siemens corporation and was getting hammered not to screw up this current deal we were working on. He had enough and announced "I'm getting really tired of having Siemens thrown in my face!". I absolutely lost it while all the others sat straight faced. Still makes me laugh."

Those are cute moments. But can they top the best "Golden Girls" episodes? I'm not so sure. I mean, just pick a Rose story and you'll be destined to smile.

Thank you Alex

"Celebrity Jeopardy on SNL. One of the categories was Japan-US Relations. Darrell Hammond as Sean Connery read it as "Jap-anus" relations. I laughed so hard for so long I thought I was going to pass out."

Louder

"The announcements for vocal talent on the Mario movie."

- ransom0374

"The reveal that Toad would be played by Michael Key, which was followed up by the reveal of Seth Rogan as Donkey Kong was the greatest moment in human history."

Pleased to... what?

"That Bondulance tweet always gets me going. (Not that I am on Twitter!) It's funniest in its original tweet format. https://mobile.twitter.com/thepunningman/status/539714048246697986?lang=en

  • The bond's Name. James Name.
  • Pleased to… what?
  • Bond Name's the James.
  • Are you alright?
  • Bames Nond's having a stronk, call a Bondulance." PositiveRequirement4

Not so Sturdy

"One time in high school, while on the phone my friend decided it would be funny to try and knee me in the butt but to his surprise my skinny, boney butt is a lot more sturdy than his knee, I felt nothing, he on the other hand was on the ground with a swollen knee, in pain unable to walk or get up from the pain."

People Share Dark Secrets From Their Profession The Public Doesn't Know | George Takei’s Oh Myyy

Sometimes secrets are an integral part in making magic. Though many professions withhold truth from the public, some things we'd prefer to know. Do we really...

What a day...

"When I was about 13, I was at the dinner table with my parents, grandmother and little brother (11). While eating, my bro kept farting every 20 seconds, and me being the child I am I was laughing like crazy! It came to a point where I couldn't breathe so I asked him to fart quietly."

"I then heard a small squeak coming from his chair and I lost it. Once I calmed down, I asked him to go to the toilet to fart. He did so and ripped the biggest piece of echoing thunder I have ever heard. I was choking on my steak and took my food upstairs. What a day."

30 Rock Cheese GIFGiphy

"One time I went to a buddies house because he texted me to swing by. Came in about 20 minutes, and he was passed out on the couch with a half eaten block of cheese on his lap. To this day 9 years later it's still the funniest crap I've seen."

- TR3V89

I love Jude...

"My friend was struggling to remember the name of a movie for several hours during in a hang-over pizza breakfast in bed. We're in the middle of a completely different conversation and she blurts out "Jude Law is a disabled man!" After the laughter subsided we were finally able to guess the movie from that clue."

Party Pooper

"Buddy of mine crap himself while passed out at the bonfire at a party (theater kids, they get wild) he drank and smoked more than he could handle, likely because he wanted to fit in. When someone came and told me I dropped to the floor and laughed for a good 10 minutes."

"Once we composed ourselves we cleaned him up ( I disposed of the crap) and put him in bed. When he asked why he was wearing different clothes in the morning we told him he had puked on himself and never said another word. Guy was a real party pooper."

- randompersons90

Under the Table...

"When my daughter was two years old she loved playing hide and seek. I'd count to ten and then come looking for her, and I'd make it fun by searching around even though I knew she was behind the curtain or behind the couch because she'd be giggling a bit. I walked into the kitchen and loudly say "now where oh where could (my daughter) be?" and then I heard "I'm under the table."

Shroomed....

"When I took mushrooms , literally everything."

- WH0SAYSTHISSH

"Yup. Only did shrooms twice. First time, felt nothing, probably got ripped off. Second time, my cousin and I spent probably four or five hours just sitting in his basement laughing our butts of at absolutely nothing. I don't remember why I started laughing, but I remember we both tried to express to each other that we had no idea what was so funny, and then that seemed like the funniest thing ever and I was laughing even harder."

A doe...


"When I was a kid a doe wandered onto my street and my friend and I were staring at it. My friend sneezed and scared the hell out of it and it bounded face first into the side of an RV, spazzed out trying to get back up with it's legs flailing in every direction, and bounded away in comically high leaps. I laughed so hard I fell over and skinned the hell out of my elbow."

- RedBeardedTallGuy

A Good Grin

"When I discovered I had accidentally left the vibrator in my laundry room that my girlfriend had given me as a joke. Most people leave a socks not vibrators. It went missing but I noticed some old ladies in my building grinning mischievously. I told my friends they laughed hysterically with me."

- ImaginationFew2428

2 MINUTES!!!

"My family was all getting together at my parents house. Me and one sister were already there, our youngest sister just arrived. Older sister goes upstairs to get something, leaves the rest of us in the kitchen. I hear the younger one go "I'm not really sure how to open this..." and the next thing I knew, I'd been shot point blank in the chest with a champagne cork."

"Sister walks back into the kitchen to both me and my mom on the floor in tears laughing while our other sister is panicking holding and over flowing bottle dripping everywhere. "I WAS GONE FOR TWO MINUTES WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED" It was another few minutes before we could explain ourselves."

- JonnySnowflake

Out of Class

Teacher Shame GIF by Lesibu GrandGiphy

"In biology class in high school, a friend nudged me and pointed to the skeleton in the room."

"Someone had placed its pointer finger in its mouth and positioned the other hand on its pelvis, like where a belt buckle would be. I could not contain my laughter and no one else thought it was nearly as funny as me. My teacher was not pleased and I was almost kicked out of class."'

- wafflepandawhale

I love cheese. I almost choked to death laughing on cheese. One hasn't lived until a near-death "cheesing."

In order to live a happy, healthy life, it's important to look to the future and leave your past behind you.

Even so, very few people don't find themselves laying awake in bed at night, or ferociously chopping vegetables in their kitchen feeling resentful, or holding a grudge from something in their past.

Losing a lead role in a school play, not making varsity, being excluded from a birthday party everyone else was invited to.

No matter how long ago it was, it's still hard to shake off the feeling of disappointment and anger you felt at the time.

For some, the bitterness is. like a pot of tea, and only grows stronger the longer it steeps.

Try as I might, I just can't get into the Kardashians. I think most of us are tired of them, actually.

But their fanbase is massive and they are pretty much the American version of the royal family. They wouldn't have attained that status without a legion of loyal fans who eat up everything they do, contributing to a massive collective social media following.

But fans of the Kardashians are just the most high-profile fanbase you might know about.

There are others you might not be so keenly aware of.

Life is moving so fast.

Everytime we get used to something it seems like it evolves and we have to learn more.

I miss CD's. Spotify confuses me.

AOL chat rooms were simple. What the H*LL is Discourse? Or Discontent?

I miss TV just being on channels in the box.

There are so many apps I have cold sweats.

And I can just tap my credit card and pay for things?

It's too much.

But all the things I learned will soon be gone.

Like the OG Toys 'R Us.

Time to say farewell...

What do we writers always say?

The truth is far stranger than fiction.

When we watch a movie there is constantly a scene where people are like... "THAT could never happen!"

Well it could and it has.

And there is more truths and facts throughout life just like fiction.

There is so much more to learn beyond science classes in school.

Wikipedia has educated us all.

Truth is truth.

So let's hear some facts that'll surprise us.

It's been so long.
