How many times have you heard, “Laughter is the best medicine”?
Many think it is a biblical quote. While the actual quote is not found in the Bible, the origin of laughter as the best medicine is found in Proverbs 17:22 –
A joyful heart is good medicine,
But a broken spirit dries up the bones.
Movies and videos are one source of laughter for our family. It never ceases to amaze me how our children can see a movie one time and memorize the lines – from that one viewing! A favorite game played while doing vineyard work is the movie line game. While I am not very good at it, it is fun to listen to the children bounce from one line to another playing off the previous comment.
Last night, we were at a friends’ house for dinner and YouTube videos came up in the conversation. It was hilarious to watch several of the videos that each of our families found funny. So, I thought I would share a few with you.
The following video was introduced to our family by a friend a month or so ago. It is a spoof on a television talk show in which the host is interviewing a Canadian Border Patrol Agent. It is definitely the children’s favorite and watching them re-enact the lines to fit the occasion is almost funnier than the video!
This video was new for us last night and is a radio talk show in which a caller asks for help in having deer crossings moved to less populated areas – after all, they seem to be on very busy roads or highways. Deer should be encouraged to cross in less busy areas!
The last video is a spoof on the interview question for the Miss USA delegates. The question being asked is whether or not math should be taught in schools. As you will see, this is a most difficult question!
Remember, whether you need a laugh or not, laughter is good medicine!
