Laughter – It’s all about timing

I have learned a few things about myself…

  1. My legs bounce when I laugh
  2. Laughing while eating eggs is a very good way to choke
  3. My laugh apparently sounds just like a whooping crane
  4. No matter how many times my friends have heard me snort…they still think it’s funny.

I know you are probably wondering why I am musing over laughter: I promise you I have a point.  It was somewhere in the middle of that fit of laughter…timing and that well placed phrase or word.  These are the elements of comedy.

A haunted toilet has some many mysteries…

And I am sure if my friends tried to stage an intervention for me and my problems, it would be something like this…

I fear that I have tried many wardrobes…and I will not give up.

But I digress, I was talking about humor, well actually about laughter…my laughter.  There are some things that just make me laugh, more specifically quotes that just strike me… funny.

Quick Niles kill five eels! – Frasier

Looks like somebody just lost the Elf vote – Andrew Peterson

I hope you enjoyed this little jaunt in all this random and funny…

What are some of your favorite funny quotes?

  1. I held up my hand. This was no time for side issues.
    “Why are you got up like a policeman?

  2. Darn, hit the wrong button.

    “I held up my hand. This was no time for side issues.
    ‘Why are you got up like a policeman?’
    ‘I am a policeman.’
    ‘A policeman?’
    ‘You’re a policeman?’
    ‘Yes, blast you. Are you deaf? I’m a policeman.’
    ‘I grasped it now. He was a policeman.”

    -P. G. Wodehouse, Joy in the Morning

  3. This never fails to make me laugh: In the movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Ron wakes up from a nightmare and says, “Spiders…they were trying to make me tap dance…I don’t want to tap dance!” Harry says, with conviction, “You tell those spiders, Ron!” Ron agrees, barely coherently (“Tell ’em…tell ’em”) and goes back to sleep immediately.

    I realize now that I’ve typed it out that this quote is less funny if you haven’t seen the movie, but I’m guessing that at least half of the people who read this blog will have seen it.

  4. That line about the eels is hilarious! So is this quote from Kurt Vonnegut:
    “Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.” XD I laugh at nerdy stuff like that.

  5. Aunts are not gentlemen! (And pretty much everything else that Wodehouse wrote.)

  6. Also, Terry Pratchett’s puns. They are the only puns I appreciate, weirdly. “She was more highly bred than a hill-top bakery.”
