Ever think about what or who makes us laugh the most? When I consider famous people who I think are funny I usually start with Bill Cosby. I think that Bill Cosby’s approach to child rearing is just the greatest. He is just funny, feeding kids chocolate cake for breakfast because it has milk, eggs, butter, and flour…sounds like breakfast to me too.
I also think that George Carlin was a very funny man in a no-nonsense kind of way. Of course he did give us the 7 words that you can’t say on television, but I honestly believe that those words have dwindled down quite a bit within the last 5 years or so. His approach to life helped you see the funny in almost anything.
I like Jeff Dunham and so does my hubby and kids. They love Achmed and Walter. It is so funny as the kids have gotten older they have laughed more and more every time they watch. They have seen the Christmas special so many times they can sing Achmed’s song on their own.
When I think of the people who I know that are funny I can think of many. My son, as he has gotten older, has become really funny. He has asked me for a restraining order against his sister, he asks to trade her in for anything that will leave him alone, he is just developing his sense of humor and it is so great to watch. My daughter is funny as well. She can not hear music without moving…she is a wiggler, dancer, a mover and shaker. She will be watching a movie and if music she likes comes on she is wiggling A LOT.
I really think that everyone I know is funny in their own right. My dear friend is pretty funny but you really have to catch it, she is rather subtle. Her husband on the other hand is pretty funny and not subtle.
They say that laughter is the best medicine in the world and it is truly amazing how a good laugh (or even a bad one) can help put things into perspective.
