A Time to Laugh

Updated on May 13, 2013
We love to laugh.
We love to laugh.

I have several little friends at church between the ages of 3 and maybe 10. They love to tell jokes and laugh. They remind me that God's Word tells us to laugh and have merriment. The other day at dinner, an eight year old boy pointed and told me to "look under there". I looked where he was pointing and asked "under where?" He then starting laughing at me and told me "I got you to say underwear." He thought that was hysterical. His mom told me he had been waiting all day to share that with me. I have gathered some jokes to share with you. Some I heard on the radio. Some have been shared by my little friends. Some were given to me by my dad. Please enjoy a few laughs and pass them on. We all need to laugh more.

Here are some Bible verses that promote laughter in our lives. This is not an extensive list of such verses, just some that caught my attention.

A joyful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Proverbs 17:22

A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.

Proverbs 15:13

All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

Proverbs 15:15

Popcorn.  That's too funny.
Popcorn. That's too funny.
We can't stop laughing.
We can't stop laughing.
Blue cheese?
Blue cheese?
What did you say?  I can't hear you.
What did you say? I can't hear you.
Do you hear my bottom snoring?
Do you hear my bottom snoring?
Bah, what?
Bah, what?
You thought I was good luck.
You thought I was good luck.

What did the baby corn say to the momma corn?

Hey, where's pop corn?

The blonde heard most accidents happen within 5 miles of home.

She put her house up for sale and moved.

What did the football coach say to the vending machine?

Give me my quarterback.

Why is it so hot in a stadium after a baseball game is over?

All of the fans leave.

What lights up a soccer field?

A soccer match.

Why do male deer need braces?

They have buck teeth.

What do you get when you cross a smurf and a cow?

Blue cheese.

What did the momma tomato say to the baby tomato who was falling behind?

Come on, ketchup.

Do you know what happened to the Indian who drank too much tea?

They found him in his tea pee.

What did the alien say to the gas pump?

Take your finger out of your ear and listen to me.

Two old ladies are sitting in church listening to a long winded preacher. One leans over and says to the other, "I think my bottom has gone to sleep." The other says back, "I know what you are talking about. Do you hear mine snoring?"

What do you get when you cross a sheep and a bee?

You get a bah hum bug.

How do you make a goldfish age?

You take out the g.

What do you get when you cross poison ivy and a four leaf clover?

A rash of good luck.

      Shanmarie and Jaye, Children are a great example on how we need to be ready to laugh. Thanks for reading and commenting. May you both have many giggles today.

      I've always adored the exuberance with which young children enjoy jokes and riddles, especially the "knock-knock" variety. I recall when one of my great-grandsons was about four years old, he loved to say, "Knock, knock" then wait for the "Who's there?" reaction, say something silly (usually irrelevant) and nearly fall over laughing.

      Would that we'd all keep children's readiness to laugh throughout our lives.

      Thanks for the giggles! I love children. They have the ability to cling to joy more than sorrow, and that is something adults should most definitely mirror.
