- [Humanity] has unquestionably one really effective weapon—laughter. Power, money, persuasion, supplication,
persecution—these can lift at a colossal humbug—push it a little—weaken it a little, century by century, but only laughter
can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand. — Mark Twain
2.A good laugh heals a lot of hurts. — Madeleine L’Engle
- A good laugh is a mighty good thing, a rather too scarce a good thing. — Herman Melville
- A good laugh is sunshine in the house. — William Thackeray
- A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. — Phyllis Diller
- A smile starts on the lips, a grin spreads to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the belly;
but a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, overflows, and bubbles all around. — Carolyn Birmingham
- A well-balanced person is one who finds both sides of an issue laughable. — Herbert Procknow
- Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand. — Mark Twain
9. Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine. — Lord Byron
- Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh. — W. H. Auden
11. An optimist laughs to forget; a pessimist forgets to laugh. — Tom Nansbury
12. And keep a sense of humor. It doesn’t mean you have to tell jokes. If you can’t think of anything else, when you’re my age, take off your clothes and walk in front of a mirror. I guarantee you’ll get a laugh. — Art Linkletter
13. And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh. — Friedrich Nietzsche
14. As soap is to the body, so laughter is to the soul. — A Jewish Proverb
15. As soon as you have made a thought, laugh at it. — Lao Tsu
16. At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities. — Jean Houston
17. Cancer is probably the unfunniest thing in the world, but I’m a comedian, and even cancer couldn’t stop me from seeing the humor in what I went through. — Gilda Radner
18. Each of us has a spark of life inside us, and our highest endeavor ought to be to set off that spark in one another. — Kenny Ausubel
19. Earth laughs in flowers. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
20. Even the gods love jokes — Plato

A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor
and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.
After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.
The waitress asked kindly, “Crushed nuts?”
“No,” he replied, “arthritis. 😳
Tuesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Excuse me, what did you say?”
“Magua said he understands the English very well.”
Answer: The Last of the Mohicans!
This movie is set during The French and Indian War in 18th century North America. In the events leading up to this scene, Huron Indian scout Magua (Wes Studi) is leading a column of British soldiers, British Colonel Munro’s two daughters, and frontiersman Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis) to Colonel Munro at Fort William Henry (Magua calls him “Grey Hair”). In this scene British Major Duncan Heyward (Steven Waddington) instructs Magua by saying, “You there, scout. We must rest soon, the women are tired.” Magua wants to stop further ahead where the water is better but he is overruled by Major Heyward. When a displeased Magua mutters in the Huron language (with subtitles), “Magua understands that the white man is a dog to his women. When they are tired, he puts down his tomahawk to feed their laziness.” Major Heyward says line one. Magua replies, this time in English, with line two. In the 1993 Academy Awards “The Last of the Mohicans” won the Oscar for Best Sound. The opening credits of this movie, superimposed on the Adirondack Mountains in NY, with the great theme music, is spectacular on a wide screen.

Wednesday’s Quizzler is…….
Once upon a time, a couple centuries ago, in a cold, harsh winter, three men were about to be executed. It was customary in their land to feed everyone who is about to be executed a last meal, consisting of whatever they want.
So, the first man says, “I am an old, poor fellow, and my whole family was vegetarian except for me. Therefore, I would like to eat one last chicken before I die”. His wish was granted, but right when he finished the last bite, the executioner killed him on the spot.
The second man asks for a pie. “My family is extremely poor, and we have never had the money to buy sweets, or anything of any sort of delicacy. So before I die, I would like the chance to taste a pie, the food I have been dreaming about for years.”
The executioner agreed, but right when the poor man finished the last piece, he was also killed on the spot. Finally, it was the third man’s turn. Without even taking a second to think, he said “I would like some strawberries”. The executioner burst out laughing. “I’m sorry”, he sputtered, “I just can’t understand why you would want to eat STRAWBERRIES of all things right before you die. Out of all the delicious foods you could have picked, why strawberries?”
What was the third man’s reply which allowed him to live?
