My Ylvis Obsession
I never really liked their biggest hit, "What Does the Fox Say," but Ylvis, a Norwegian comedy group, has done many things that are a lot funnier in their own hit TV program in their country. Here is one sample of their songs which makes me laugh a lot harder than their What Does the Fox Say hit. It's called, Someone Like Me.

California Girls -- Filipino Food
California Girls could never sound the same to me after this video. Even if it's a serious song, I end up laughing because the video comes to mind. Filipinos love to eat, and food is a strong cultural part of us. We always feed visitors to our home, even if it means killing the chicken in the back yard to do so. Hope you like this.

Laurie and Fry and America
I love Laurie and Fry, even if their videos are very old. One of my favorites is their song, America. Hope you like it, too.

Poll on international humor
What type of video was funniest for you among the four presented?
What is laughter?
Laughter is an international language that we all take for granted. I figure you can have world peace in one of two ways. First, give them all sleeping pills so they have nothing to fight about. Second, fill them with laughing gas.
Jean Houston said, "At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities."
But Maya Angelou said it better when she said, "I don't trust anyone who doesn't laugh."
