    I hadn't seen HomeGirl's post before I decided to post here (honest); but something that first made me out-and-out laugh when I first heard it, and now is kind of making me smile, is a commercial I heard for the first time on TV about some gadget that takes pictures.  Their "line" has something to do with adding yet more cats to the Internet.  lol  (That whole thing about cat pictures on the Internet just makes me smile/laugh - and I don't even have a cat these days.   smile )

          She sure is a cutie!
          As a grandfather I can sit back and watch the inventive ways they put food in anything including stuffing it in their pockets and just enjoy it!

          The older twin found a new way to show a plate empty of a vegetable she didn't like.

          She stuffed them down her trousers stood up and said very politely. "Granpa may I be excused from the table?"

          then went to the bathroom and emptied the vegies in the bin while pretending to need the toilet. smile

    No doubt - little kids are among the biggest causes of smiles.  Since they've been covered here, though; another smile-producer for me (and this one is really dumb, I know), is that "classic" - dogs sticking their heads out of car windows.  I don't know why something as mundane (and common) still makes me smile, but it does.  smile

        The funniest one is when there are two dogs (especially if they're "twins") sticking their heads out of windows in the same car.   smile    (At least IMHO.  smile  )

    This video makes me smile every time I go back and find it again.   smile  (and it's not anything I have any connection to, or that anyone I know has any connection to either, by the way - just in case anyone wonders  smile  ).
