Just to See You Smile

Updated on July 23, 2010

Laughter is the best medicine

I have decided that this one should make you smile. I want to pass on some of my families favorite jokes. I believe that we should laugh every chance we get. Laughter has been proven to cure all types of ailments. Some say it is simply the increase of oxygen, while others believe it is mind over matter. Perhaps some chemical is produced when we laugh that is necessary for our health. Whatever the reason, laughter is good for us, and life is too short as it is. 

I hope that you will laugh every day, and make someone else laugh along the way.

My mother's favorite jokes

Q:How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?

A:Only one, but it takes a very long time, because first they must work together decide what the light bulb really wants to change, and why.

Corny right? okay.

Q:What do you call the redhead between the blonde and the brunette?

A:The interpreter.

(I am a redhead and the mother of a blonde and a brunette, so don't get angry.)

A man comes into the bar and asks, "If I can show you something you've never seen, can I drink on the house?

The bartender says "Sure, but I gotta tell ya, I've seen everything."

The customer reaches in one pocket and pulls out a baby grand piano, from his other pocket he produces a little man about twelve inches tall who walks over to the piano, sits down and starts to play.

The bartender is amazed, "Okay, where'd you get this set-up?"

The customer says, "There's a leprechaun out in the woods granting wishes."

The bartender hands the man his keys and apron and says "Look, you can have the bar!" and races off even though the customer tries to stop him.

A half an hour later the bartender comes back in covered with feathers and bird droppings.

"That leprechaun is crazy! I wished for a million bucks and the next thing you know there's all these ducks flapping their wings, chasing me back, I'm lucky to be alive."

"I tried to stop you, he's hard of hearing." Seeing the bartenders surprise he says, "Well you didn't think I wished for a twelve inch pianist did you?"

Entering Marion

The Videos

Above is a cover of John Forster's Entering Marion, and below is John Forster singing A Mismatch made in Hell.

Some people are good at writing funny songs that just make you smile. These are some of my favorites, I hope you will enjoy.

Live John Forster

A couple of my mother's favorites. Jim Stafford would have her laughing so hard, just to see him walk on stage brought her joy.

Ray Stevens below is always a classic. Famous for songs such as "The Streak" and "Ahab the Arab" his brand of humor is all but gone these days, it seems.

Comedy has become a game of shock value, who can use the most cuss words in a sentence... In the old days, before cable television, comedy had to be a bit more subtle. 

What Little Kids Do

Ray Stevens

Randy Stonehill has been a favorite of mine since the mid-seventies. He used to do strictly contemporary gospel, but each album would have a comedic song on it. This video is one of many on YouTube from his 20th Anniversary Concert.
