Who Invented Funny & Godsign™

Hello All
Happy Friday to you!

All of you reading this know of times in your life where you didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Both options are open to you in that moment. Sometimes you do both at the same time . . . laughing through the tears.

Who invented funny? 

How far back does human laughter go? 

Where does humor come from?

To spend some time thinking about it is funny food for thought.

I love that laughter is contagious . . . literally.

We could all use a bit more laughter and humor in our lives after all we have been through. You have had moments where someone is laughing and you don’t even know why but you start laughing too. Just the sound of some some people’s laughter can get you laughing. You may laugh now just at the thought of it.

Laughter is, after all, some of the best medicine created.

Now that we can again, let’s say you and I go to enjoy a great comedian at a comedy club and our ‘funny bone’ is tickled. We laugh till it hurts. It’s wonderful!!! Those two hours spent bathed in humor can do more to heal us than all the doctor pills taken in a month.

Comedians, funny folk, people who help us laugh are all major Healers. Our Creator – creation – the heavens above –  have two of the best we’ve known return Home in the last few weeks.

With all the pain suffered by so many humans on our planet is it any wonder that Creation brought joy, fun, laughter and humor to Life?

I think most of you will agree with me that there can be a distinct difference between male humor and female humor. That’s a wonderful thing. Female and male humor are both equally funny, both needed in all our lives and both bringing healing and balance to the other. Both can help us laugh through the tears life can bring to each of us. Sometimes the only thing left to us in life is to try to laugh through the pain. I think that is one of the big reasons why comedy/humor/the ‘funny bone’ was created in each of us to begin with and has evolved throughout history…

Knock, knock
Who’s there?
Boo who?
Don’t cry, it’s just a joke!

There are different personal tastes in what is considered funny. Like fingerprints, each person has not only their own unique laugh, unlike anyone else’s, but also their own personal ‘sense of humor’. I believe there is actually a ‘funny’ gene that gets handed down in some families through the gene pool of their DNA. You all know who the funny folks are in your family. You may be one of them. Thank YOU for all do. I know personally there are a few members of my family that got ‘funny genes’ and they just know how to make us laugh, thank God. It is a special Gift indeed and I think a Gift from our Divine Creator. 

The word humour (humor) comes from the ‘humoral medicine’ of the ancient Greeks. They believed that the balance of fluids in the human, known as humours, controlled human health and emotion. More laughter made your humours more balanced and healthy.

This woman rushed to see her doctor, looking very much worried and all strung out. She rattles off: “Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were bloodshot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face? What’s WRONG with me, Doctor!?”

The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says: “Well, I can tell you that there ain’t nothing wrong with your eyesight….”

All ages and cultures laugh, recognize something as funny and respond to humor. Children will respond more to physical humor and ‘slap stick’ found in cartoons whereas the more mature might prefer satire which requires more understanding of social meanings. As with any form of art, the acceptance of something as ‘funny’ depends on societal factors differing from culture to culture.

Comedy, throughout history, has been used all over the world as a form of entertainment. Whether as small troupes of actors traveling through small towns of the Far East or in the large courts of the European kings, wit and sarcasm could be used to influence, effect and change history by getting in the king or queen’s good graces just by making them laugh.

All the world loves a clown. 

Comedians can use humor as a salve helping to heal a nation, or the world when it is down. Think of the Gift that both Charles Chaplin and the Marx Brothers brought to the world during the Depression and World Wars through their ‘moving pictures’. The laughter they inspired helped ease sorrow worldwide. Chaplin’s classic movie The Dictator is to this day one of the most powerfully moving satire films of modern history, bringing universal Truths to light with laughter while at the same time forcing humanity to look at the darker side of life and some of the people in it.

There is a Monty Python Flying Circus sketch that is often referred to as “The Funniest Joke in the World”. The sketch is about a joke that is so funny that anyone who reads or hears it promptly ‘dies from laughter’. I am still searching for that joke!

Wikipedia lists 19 different types (genres) of comedy. Some of them are: black comedy, blue comedy, cringe comedy, deadpan comedy, improvisational comedy, musical comedy, observational comedy, sick comedy, spoof comedy, sitcom comedy and wit/word play comedy to name but a few. 

Two friends are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says: “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man.” The man then replies: “Yeah, well we were married for 35 years.”

Not all comedians are healers. Some people calling themselves funny can actually cause pain, hurt and damage with the vulgarity they call humor. But that is each persons opinion and taste.

A newlywed couple moves into their new house. One day the husband comes home from work and his wife says, “Honey, you know, in the upstairs bathroom one of the pipes is leaking, could you fix it?” The husband says, “What do I look like, Mr. Plumber?” A few days go by, and he comes home from work and his wife says, “Honey, the car won’t start. I think it needs a new battery. Could you change it for me?” He says: “What do I look like, Mr. Goodwrench?” Another few days go by, and it’s raining pretty hard. The wife finds a leak in the roof. She says, “Honey, there’s a leak on the roof! Can you please fix it?” He says, “What do I look like, Bob Vila?” The next day the husband comes home, and the roof is fixed. So is the plumbing. So is the car. He asks his wife what happened. “Oh, I had a handyman come in and fix them,” she says. “Great! How much is that going to cost me?” he snarls. Wife says: “Nothing. He said he’d do it for free if I either baked him a cake or took him to bed.” “Uh, well, what kind of cake did you make?” asks the husband. “What do I look like,” she says, “Betty Crocker?”

Some of you just laughed out loud and others didn’t find it very funny at all. Both are perfectly wonderful responses. Its all good. That’s whats soooooooooo Divine about humor. 

Did a higher Intelligence create funny, bless each of us with a sense of humor and design a way for us to enjoy our unique laughter? 

What do you think?

I am eternally grateful for the fun, joy, bliss and laughter that has come into my life creating the humor that tickles my funny bone. Especially through the tears . . . 

Allow the Godsign around you this week to show Up in the wild wacky world of funny and laugh at the humor, laugh at the absurdity, laugh at the funny bone that at times tickles us all.

Never pick a fight with an ugly person, they’ve got nothing to lose.

Do you think God gets stoned? I think so . . . look at the platypus.

If women ran the world we wouldn’t have wars, just intense negotiations every 28 days.

Politics: “Poli” a Latin word meaning “many”; and “tics” meaning “bloodsucking creatures”.

Comedy is acting out optimism.

If it’s the Psychic Network why do they need a phone number?

People say that money is not the key to happiness, but I always figured if you have enough money, you can have a key made.

I knew I was an unwanted baby when I saw that my bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

Today is my waxer’s birthday. What do you get for the woman who removes everything?

I am definitely going to watch The Emmys this year! My makeup team is nominated for “Best Special Effects.”

A study says owning a dog makes you 10 years younger. My first thought was to rescue 2 more, but I don’t want to go through menopause again.

Keep laughing my friend, it certainly helps.


Your the Reason Our Kids are Ugly
by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty

You’re the reason I’m ridin’ ’round on recapped tyres
An’ you’re the reason I’m hangin’ our clothes outside on walls
An’ you’re the reason our kids are ugly, little darling
Ah, but looks ain’t everything
And money ain’t everything
But, I love you just the same

You’re the reason I changed to beer from soda pop
An’ you’re the reason I never get to go to the beauty shop
You’re the reason our kids are ugly, little darling
Oh, but looks ain’t everything
And money ain’t everything
But, I love you just the same

I guess that we won’t ever have, everything we need
‘Cause when we get ahead, it’s got another mouth to feed

And that’s the reason my good looks and my figure’s gone
And that’s the reason I ain’t got no hair to comb
An’ you’re the reason our kids are ugly, little darling
Ah but looks ain’t everything
And money ain’t everything
But, I love you just the same

Conway, why in the devil don’t you gon’
And shave an’ put on a clean pair of pants?

Loretta, look at yourself
I wish you’d take them curlers out of your hair
An’ go put on a little bit of make up
An’ get out of the housecoat before supper

Ha well let me tell you somethin’, Conway
Considerin’ everything I went through today
I look like a movie star
Yeah, Ruth Cassidy
Thank you

Besides that
All of our kids took after your part of our family anyway
Oh they did, huh? What about the one’s that’s bald?
Well, I guess you might say they took after me
