I hate sandcastles
๐Ÿ˜† Gotta laugh, a few words can make a picture! ๐Ÿ˜†

A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say…

But what about adding words as well …

What a difference a few words can really make to a picture, it’s no wonder they get viral quickly and easily … ๐Ÿ˜† the more innocent or innocuous the picture that better the words could fit.

Alot to be said for a Sense of humour ๐Ÿ˜‰

The above one cracked me up… enough for me to make it my desktop background for a while, always good to start the session off with a chuckle, or two. Whoever did this one spotted a good one.

It’s interesting the different roles humour plays in our live … for all of us differently, how we use humour etc. Funny shit… pardon the pun! ๐Ÿ˜†

Bottom line is …

Without humour, what have you got?

Not a lot. ๐Ÿ™

As they say, “you can either laugh or cry” which in a sense really nails it, not that it’sย literally, IE, you probably won’t cry, but it’s the point it makes …

“Laughter is the best medicine” – as we’ve all heard too.

What’s interesting to me is that laughter is a pretty much a human trait … so it’s gotta be important. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Writing with a little of it matters, it seems to make some difference and yet it also gets some interesting response, going by two emails about the Missy magic post, one went as far as to say, you two need to get a room! ๐Ÿ˜†

Just as aย side-noteย -Thanks for that, but if you knew us then you’d know that is never going to happen, we are just weird with the humour… maybe just weird full stop. ๐Ÿ˜† but another thing is I don’t think you could get a room big enough to fit her personality into and me, for too long! ๐Ÿ˜›

It’s friendship, a funny thing – I have been learning surprising things about it all myself… more recently even too, some friendships with the opposite sex are worth far more than is the risk of losing, there is no value in that risk at all – say as in the case of me and missy! ๐Ÿ˜† She would agree with that too… I experienced the cost of that myself with someone (NOT missy, silly!) a few weeks back, some know what I mean. ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sometimes it just isn’t worth it …

Hey Missy… “Howdy” – if you are reading …



Never said nuffink!

I know, not funny…ย I’M serious… ๐Ÿ˜†

Humour is a powerful thing …

I know it makes an amazing defence mechanism too … in several ways., it can shatter barriers, change the atmosphere, influence people and more importantly situations. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It can mask insecurities, whatever they may be.

The only problem is we all have unique humour, and humour is also geolocated too … meaning humour is influenced by where you grow up. It’s so clear when you see jokes that go right over peoples heads, sarcasm, irony, innuendos, etc, can be completely missed. Funny in itself! ๐Ÿ˜† But unavoidable! ๐Ÿ˜›

Have you heard about … ?

Yeah, probably… :rolleyes: and isn’t that saying something? ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, what are you putting out with your humour?

Get someone laughing, how does it make you feel? More importantly how does it make them feel? How much does it influence the way they feel about you?

After all, that’s yours, it’s unique, how is it playing out a role in your life? How do you share it? ๐Ÿ˜‰ How do others “remember you” when you not with them?

It’s not funny you know, it’s worth thinking about. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s what reallyย differentiateย us from animals. ๐Ÿ˜€ Understanding humour is important, wouldn’t you say?

I like wit. ๐Ÿ˜€ Those who know me know what I mean. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Over to you … ๐Ÿ˜†

Humour, a funny thing…

    Humor is an important thing, as long as we remember not to offend others with it. It’s a thin line to walk though – especially on the Internet where you never know who is reading your posts.

      Hi Anne,

      Thanks for that comment, though I have to slightly disagree, simply because I don’t care if if it offends someone, why? Because I can’t do anything about that and if the humour is not directly offensive, it’s not something we “can” be careful about… that’s the flip side of geo humour… we won’t know if it will offend… so no point feeling bad of it happens.

      I don’t expect to “get” everyone else’s joke, so I won’t expect others to get mine either.

      If we worry about that line you mention too much, we’d never say much. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      That to me is a healthier way to look at it. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Humor to me is a necessity. It is what’s gets us through difficult times. I want my kids to leave my house with a good sense of humor. There is nothing that saddens me more than to see a little kid that does know how to laugh and takes things too seriously.

      Nailed it really there Melinda, it’s a great thing to give our kids, if possible. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hmm, I do think that I’m weird sometimes, no, most of the time, I believe. Since I do believe that humor doesn’t necessarily need interaction for it to be called funny, well, I laugh a lot by myself (while reading, seeing funny stuffs over the web and thinking/reminiscing something I’ve done stupidly in the past). I think no one is incapable of laughing even in just one day. Even when we mourn, there are still some moments in that day that we can’t just help but laugh ๐Ÿ™‚

    By the way Rob, I was trying to visit your blog these past 2 days and it only shows server time out page. Had problems with your hosting?


    PS Jason, Rob here, this comment went to spam. best see askimet again. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hi Jason,

      See that PS at the bottom of your comment.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      As for this blog, yeah, sorry about that mate, our host was being moved onto a better server. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy days! ๐Ÿ˜†

    Here is a perfect quote for your post!
    “No one needs a smile as much as a person who fails to give one.” – Unknown
    Humor is very important.

      I like that… ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for sharing that one, not heard it myself before. ๐Ÿ˜€

    The baby picture that says I hate sandcastles cracks me up. Probably kicks them all down on the beach. It hard to believe that someone could hate that kink of architecture (art). I guess that art is not for everyone.

    Whoever said “Laughter is the best medicine,” has never had asthma. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Before I got myself some maintenance so my asthma won’t attack, I used to have attacks because of laughing. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m not a good joker, though. I often forget punchlines.

    There is a difference but I wont comment. I will say humor is wonderful for the soul though. I love to laugh. We have some really good friends and they are so funny. Literally….I enjoy their company so so much.

    One of the more interesting things I found out about humor is that what’s funny varies from country to country. I once worked with a group of Italians – one of whom had been given a Dilbert calendar. Every day they came by my cube so that I could try to explain the humor in the calendar!

    I eventually learned not to use humor in meetings that involved people from different countries – it just really bogged things down!
