>This summer there are a lot of films that I want to see in the cinema:
Shrek Forever After
Toy Story 3
Cats and Dogs – The Revenge of Kitty Galore
These are just three of the films (all available in 3D if your eyes can stand it). Have you noticed that they are all what might be described as ‘family films’, all pure fiction and all designed to induce laughter in the viewers. What does this say about me?
I think (or hope) that one of the things it says is that I recognise the need to take a break and laugh. That’s not to say that there is not normally any laughter in my life, but it is good to take a break and deliberately find a way of being amused. That may be why most posts on my blog have a joke on them – the hope is that it may make you smile or even laugh.
The old maxim is that ‘laughter is the best medicine’. Not necessarily true. Iif you need brain surgery or have diabetes you don’t want the doctor treating you by telling you jokes. But it does help bring physiological and emotional balance. God knew what he was doing when he created us with the capacity to find things funny and laugh, and I am extremely grateful for that.
See if this tickles your funny bone:
You are driving in a small car at a constant speed.
On your left side is a drop-off (The ground is 18-20 inches below the level you are traveling on), and on your right side is a fire engine traveling at the same speed as you are.
In front of you is a large galloping horse which is the same size as your car and you cannot overtake it. Behind you is a galloping zebra.
Both the horse and zebra are also travelling at the same speed as you are. What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?
Get off the merry-go-round!
