How about a laugh, (hopefully)

Posted by Leonard @jakedduck1, Dec 31, 2018

I believe laughter is the best medicine. Laughter has actually been scientifically proven to help people with depression issues.
Let’s give it a try so we can all get happy and feel better. Many Epilepsy forums I’ve been on had joke sections. I was probably the biggest joke of all since I didn’t get a lot of the jokes. They said the jokes couldn’t be above 4th grade level for me to understand them so my jokes may be rather simplistic but let’s give it a try.
Have a lovely day everyone,
Jake

We haven’t had a laugh in a while.

A guy is having issues getting his van to start so he googles mechanics in his area. He comes across one he never heard of before called Vincent’s Van Repair. Because they do on the spot repairs, he called them the next morning and the mechanic was there at 11 am.

He meets the mechanic and immediately notices that the mechanic is missing his left ear but he doesn’t say anything. After explaining that he couldn’t get his van started , the mechanic thinks for a minute and gets to work under the hood.

Ten minutes later the mechanic is able to get the van to start.

As the guy thanked the mechanic who was starting to leave he said “I have to ask…what happened to your ear?” The mechanic says, “It’s a simple story really…I found out that if you cut your left ear off, you can make the Van Gogh.”

Enjoy,

FL Mary

Thanks for the smile, Mary. Very funny (in spite of being a little corny).

@jakedduck1 😹😹A cat died and went to Heaven. God met the animal at the Pearly Gates and said, “You have been a good cat all of these years. Anything you want is yours for the asking.”
The cat thought for a moment and then said, “All my life I lived on a farm and slept on hard, wooden floors… I would like a real fluffy pillow to sleep on.”
God said, “Say no more.” Instantly, the cat had a HUGE fluffy pillow.
A few days later, 12 mice were simultaneously killed in an accident and they all went up to Heaven together. God met the mice at the Gates of Heaven, with the exact same offer that He made to the cat.p
The mice said, “Well, we have had to run all of our lives… from cats, dogs, and even from people with brooms. If we could just have some little roller-skates, we would never have to run again.”
God answered, “It is done.” All the mice had beautiful little roller-skates.
About a week later, God decided to check on the cat… He found her sound asleep on her fluffy pillow. God gently awakened the cat and asked, “Is everything okay? How have you been doing? Are you happy?”
The cat replied, “Oh, everything is just WONDERFUL… I’ve never been so happy in my life! My pillow is always fluffy and those little “Meals-on-Wheels” that You have been sending over are delicious.” 😸

For all of you who remember, Happy Days and the Fonz, I thought you would enjoy this excerpt from an episode where the Fonz tries to admit he was wrong.

It took me a long time to get there – but these days, it's often on the tip of my tongue!

I know what you mean, Sue. Maturity brings its own rewards which include being able to say, "I'm wrong."

It's easy to say I'm sorry for me but that I'm wrong? With a type AAAAA husband, not very.

@johnbishop I had a Mayo sleep study, nothing like this, but then it was. A Cardiologist had me 'check out' a tiny device that attached to my finger, I was to go back to the hotel room, sleep for the night, and bring the device back in the next day for our consultation. Needless to say, my experience was to lie awake all night and watch my finger, and most likely walk to the bathroom with it. Didnt sleep at all. The consultation said I had sleep apnea, and I argued that's impossible, I didn't sleep! I was awake all night long.

@Erinmfs I think you may have had a pulse oximeter for checking the oxygen level during sleep. I had that one also before I had the sleep study done downtown at Mayo. The cartoon pretty much summed it up for me but probably not that many wires although I did get a few chuckles as the tech walked me from the room where they wire you up and to the sleeping room with all the wires hanging loose and the tech hold them as we were walking.

I had a sleep study done. They told me to sleep on my back. I don't do that! They called it quits at 6 hrs. Never did get to REM sleep. Laying there with things poking you, and knowing a camera is on you. Would you sleep?!
