Just For Laughs

Morning All,

Once again Bane gave me this idea with his blog post. With all the publicity I'm giving his blog, he should be getting a lot of visitors LOL. Oh and Marsha, too. Marsha's Walmart Post also plays a role in inspiring today's post.

First of all, I have to tie it in with writing...since my blog is almost strictly about writing and writing path.

So I'll do it this way. If any of you all have read either of my parodies, you'll remember how goofy my sense of humor is. Les was willing to have me parody his life. First when I made up the character of Catalina in Because Of The Pie, and the one I did for him and his friend, Bob in The Adventures of Super Les And His SideKick, Bob.

Of course, there's other funny writings out there. Like Dave Barry and his various books. Or Jim Davis's Garfield or any other comic strips.

But other than people's writing books with comedy in it, or lines/characters that make you laugh out loud (LOL) what else out there "cracks you up"?

For me, it's things like LOL Cats. I think that's hysterical. There's another site called LOL Saints (which, I find extremely funny and not at all offensive to me and my faith).

Another site I find hugely funny is comic Tim Hawkins site, which has some videos of his material. You can look it up here.

We all need a laugh every now and again. Whether it's through websites like this, or going to see stand up comedy or reading comic strips or through witty/funny dialogue and characters, laughter is a good thing.

There are people who even say laughter lowers blood pressure. So hey, feel free to put funny in your stories...as long as it goes along with the story!

How do you tickle your funny bone?

Have A Wacky Wednesday!

Thanks for another shout out ;) -- and, great post. I laugh/smile too infrequently, and sites like LOL Cats are perfect ones to lighten the mood. Thanks!

Hi, I am jumping over from Stephanie Faris's Blog to say Thank you for speaking up, you said what I wanted and said it well. I spoke out yesterday, I thought rationally, but I guess it was taken wrong. But I wanted to stop in and say Thank you, and to check out your blog. :)

You're welcome. Laughter does a body good :-) Pass it on! (remember those old milk commericials?) Anyway, you're welcome, glad you liked it. :-)

bethanyintexas said...


Yeah, sometimes things get taken wrong...especially online. And you're welcome. Thanks for the compliment :-)

I find humor in everything, even morbid things. You have to be able to laugh at yourself too. Life is too short to take things too seriously.
I loved those websites by the way!

Glad you liked 'em! :-) Keep on chortling!

Marsha Sigman said...

Ok I had to go back and check Steph's post. I have a hard time with her blog when I'm at work for some reason. The firewall doesn't like it. It was interesting and even though we have different opinions on some issues, you better still love me!

I love your name!!! What do I do to laugh? Watch America's Funniest Videos. Silly, I know. But it always makes me laugh! And then my husband laughs at me and I laugh harder. Sort of like perpetual laughter.

Hi! I loved the comment you left yesterday on Steph in the City's blog about marriage being more than a piece of paper. I couldn't agree more with everything you were saying, and had to click through to your blog to tell you that. Very well put, and very true :)

bethanyintexas said...


Nah...all bets are off! JUST KIDDING (P.S. haven't even looked up your comment). Actually I'm kinda baffled how this comment section about laughing has become about that blog post/my comment on that blog post. I'd prefer emails over it since I like to keep my blog almost strictly about writing. People can email me at bethanyintexas@yahoo.com about it, if they want to tell me something about it.

Bethany W.,

I know. You and I have one of the greatest names ever invented. I applaud your parents' wisdom in naming you Bethany! LOL. Thank you for the compliment :-)
