Blogging Challenge Day 5: Things That Make Me Laugh

30-Day Blogging Challenge
Day 5 Prompt: Laughter

List as many things as you can that make you laugh.

Okay! In no particular order:

People falling down: I feel a bit bad about this one because bodies are fragile…but watching people trip and fall can be SO FUNNY! That seems truest on TV and online because it’s easier to see the fall occur without a connection to a person getting injured.

Some examples:

  • QWOP: Hahahaha! Last night I was having trouble at volleyball because of tight calves—I would attempt to lunge for the ball, but my legs wouldn’t respond quickly enough. At some point I was reminded of the uncoordinated movements in QWOP and started laughing on the court.
  • Videos of cats missing their jumps: LOL! I hope they landed on their feet! I think it’s funny because we’re used to seeing them as graceful and well-coordinated animals. Warning: some of the examples below are very ouch.

Damn You Autocorrect: In principle, it shouldn’t be so funny, but if I start reading them I’m guaranteed to be crying from laughter in minutes!

Comedian Mitch Hedberg: I haven’t watched clips in a while, but the last time I did I had to pause the video a bunch of times because I was laughing too hard to hear.

“Nailed It” photos from Pinterest craft attempts: example 1, example 2.

I am already crying from laughter from these examples! I’m sure there are others, but these are the first that come to mind. Enjoy!
