Laughing to the Bank: How Anybody to Laugh All the Way to the Bank

Updated on July 12, 2012



Laughing and banking.

Two words that are irresistibly interesting to most people. The same people who, if they happen to be going to the bank, prefer to be laughin as opposed to  cryin' all the way. 

So let's look into this subject, with levity and laughter-- just for laughs.

You never know when you will need to know how to do it--after all there are a number of reasons you might have that will make you say to yourself: 'gee whiz! I sure wish I could learn to laugh, to snortle, and to snicker while traversing the distance to where I shall deposit my loot!'  (I know I do.)


If you can learn to laugh all the way to the bank, you may find it habit forming and do it more and more often. Now wouldn't that be a habit not to break?

On the Way to the Bank...

Now let's be clear about this. You need to have some money that you are carrying to the bank, at least in a metaphorical sense, what with the modern penchant for digital transactions, you may not be literally transporting a canvass bag of boodle in the way that Scrooge McDuck would prefer to do it, but still, you are, in theory, loaded with moolah and happy to be checking it in to it's new home--your bank account.

You may have just made 100 dollars a day, via Hubpages; you may have picked the winning numbers in the lotto, or you may just have inherited your long-lost Uncle Buck's rare spoon collection--but whatever the reason--you find yourself rolling in dough and hence the term 'laughing all the way to the bank' may be something you are in need of doing.

But do you know how to do it?

Learn and Laugh

Begin by gently pulling the corners of your mouth back in a big grin--not so big as to make you resemble the Grinch Who Stole Christmas--you don't want to creep everyone out and get arrested for lascivious grinning--a misdemeanor in some States--but just a small smile, to get you started.

Now, as you doff your fedora, and grab your bag of bouillon, wheelbarrow of coins, or pounds of checks (yes, if you have enough of them, even Google checks could get pretty heavy) you increase that smile to a snigger.

As you leave your domicile, you will want to be producing a tiny snigger, or a large chortle, depending upon how laughs are measured in your country, but it should be audible to anyone passing you on the street.

You want to begin to spread the word that you have, in some monetary manner, scored a coup, and as you ramble down the boulevard you are beginning to make it clear to all who spot you, that you are indeed a jolly fellow who can't keep his mirth to himself.

After all, that is the point of laughing all the way to the bank. You want to tell the world what a clever fellow you are...and more to the point--that THEY are not! 

What to Do when You Get to the Bank

Let's assume that you make it to the institution of higher-savings without any baddies spotting you dragging that bag o' dollars behind you and deciding you were a mugger's dream-come-true. Now what do you do?

Approach the teller, and instruct her to 'place your greenbacks in the vault and make it snappy, because you are getting muscle spasms from all the laughing you have been doing, and want to stop as soon as 'pos'.

Tip: You might want to ask the teller if she wishes to join you for a drink after she unloads your dosh in the vault--laughing all the way to the bank can be thirsty work!

The economy may be crashing around our ears while the cost of living is rising faster than Kate Middleton's hemlines, but good-humoured internet users have been laughing in the face of the current crisis by predicting just how bad things could really get. A tracker follows the interest rate set by the Bank of England - and is always set at a certain amount above the Bank of England's interest rate. Every year, every bank across the UK must pay the Bank of England around 2.5 per cent of their new deposits. This gives the Bank their enormous fortune - which is why they can pump billions into the ailing markets.

Taylor Hicks Is Laughing All The Way to the Bank |
It is paramount to make sure that this brand is properly managed along the way to maximize value and brand equity. Hicks' strategy of fan building may look like a slow burn now, but he's laughing all the way to the bank. I've been to Grease, some shadow shows and seen Taylor work the fans and audiences -- he is a master at his trade and is indeed "laughing his way to the bank". I really like his shorter hair WAY better than his longer hair!
