Can you make me laugh?

Asked by sakura (8260points) August 23rd, 2011

Ok so this has been asked before but it was over two years ago. I am feeling a bit yuck today, time of month, going back to work next week after the Summer holidays, weather is rubbish, no motivation and I could do with cheering up!

So any funny jokes, anecdotes, references to funny websites, comedians I can google would be much appreciated. I will check in a bit later and hopefully I will be able to crack my first smile of the day!

Thanks my flutherite friends xxx

How many psychologists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
One, but the light bulb really has to want to change.

How many ADD kids does it take to screw in a light bulb?
“Let’s go ride bikes!”

How many surrealists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A fish.

How many college football players does it take to change a light bulb?
The entire team! And they all get a semester’s credit for it!

How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb?
Charismatic: Only one. Hands already in the air.
Pentecostal: Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against
spirit of darkness.
Presbyterians: None. Lights will go on and off at predestined times.
Roman Catholic: None. Candles only.
Baptists: At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and three
committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad
and fried chicken.
Episcopalians: Three. One to call the electrician, one to mix the
drinks, and one to talk about how much better the old one was.
Methodists: Undetermined. Whether your light is bright, dull, or
completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or
tulip bulb. Church-wide lighting service is planned for Sunday. Bring
bulb of your choice and a covered dish.
Nazarene: Six. One woman to replace the bulb while five men review
church lighting policy.
Lutherans: None. Lutherans don’t believe in change.
Amish: What’s a light bulb?

The Good Ol’ Days
Grandpa was always going on about the good old days, and the lower cost of living, in particular…

“When I was a kid, my mom could send me to the store, and I’d get a salami, two pints of milk, 6 oranges, 2 loaves o’ bread, a mad magazine and some new blue jeans… all for a dollar!!

Then as an after thought, he sadly added…“You can’t DO that any more…they got those damn video cameras everywhere you look…...”

This has probably been done before, but last night I was imagining doing Karaoke to the Fantastiks “Try To Remember”, and fumbling for the words. Had me laughing all night.

You stink! : )

Tbag's avatar

I don’t know why I find this funny like hell and irrelevant but I love parrots. His laugh is contagious! – swearing parrot

sakura's avatar

@filmfann… karaoke makes me laugh every time!! Especially when someone takes it VERY seriously and are rubbish. Hey wouldn’t that make a great TV programme? Oh yeah it’s already been done X Factor!! :)

@chewhorse Nice!! That worked :)

@Hibernate @sliceswiththings @Tbag they look like sites I may have to look at on my home computer and not my work laptop!! Leave them with me

@mazingerz88 hahaha!! that really made me laugh as my 3 neices (two only being 2yrs old) have learned how to say your name, pause, wait for you to say “what?” then say STINKS!! giggling their heads off!! Just reminded me of them and reminded me again that children really are the best for lifting your spirits at times!

Thanks again guys xxxx Keep it up xxx I can come back here whenever I feel blue :)

bkcunningham's avatar

You know it is wrong…but I bet you laugh.

sakura's avatar

@bkcunningham hehhehe! opps hope that doesn’t get picked up on the work spy system!!

bkcunningham's avatar

I just realized I should have given a warning. I am so sorry. Hope you didn’t get into trouble. Sorry.

Okay, here’s a video of my oldest in a school play. He’s the big blue gnome. Trust me, it’ll make you go wtf and smile. Wait for my comment about how you can’t watch this sober.

bkcunningham's avatar

I love how he gets that last little shake in on the maracas before they are collected in the bin at the end. Very cute, @Simone_De_Beauvoir.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@bkcunningham Yeah, he’s a lovely weirdo.

Well-behaved cats; probably trained by @tinyfaery

Snowball, the indefatigable dancing cockatoo.

When Decartes was asked whether he wanted fries with his hamburger, he replied, “I don’t know” and promptly vanished.

sakura's avatar

@gailcalled…how do you discover your cats can do that???
Parrot or Justin in another dimension?

@Simone_De_Beauvoir WTF??? Was the correct response!! And a big smile…loved the costume Btw

@all who posted clips that I could only download on a different computer…Hilarious :p

Thanks flutherites you made me laugh xxx

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@sakura Yeah, we bought parts of it and my aunt took care of the details. Crazy times.

gailcalled's avatar

@sakura: After watching this, made in Japan, we discovered that my cat refused to do that or anything similar.

And be careful. Snowball. who is a cockatoo, gets really offended when you call him a parrot.

I forgot about these guys!! One of my all time favorite—

@sakura happy to hear ya liked it. Make sure to check out the other videos on his youtube page, theyre all pretty funny.

Found this bird in a thread here on Fluther some weeks ago.
Just click it!

bkcunningham's avatar

That is amazing, @rebbel. There is a mockingbird who visits my live oak who not only mocks other birds, but squirrels. It is so funny to listen to his pompous song…and then he inserts a squirrel bark.

rebbel's avatar

Makes me smile everytime I see it :-)
You should (well, you could) video the mock and post it somewhere…, there’s always an audience for funny birds!

sakura's avatar

@linguaphile I LURVE Singing in The Rain :) and I saw those acrobat dudes on a programme and love the fact I can now see more :)

@rebbel that’s pretty awsome!

@WillWorkForChocolate made me laugh :)

You guys are FAB :)

@WillWorkForChocolate i LOVE walk on the wildside.

@sakura I directed a traveling comedy group—we were doing a lot of the same stuff as Gamarjobat before we even discovered they existed. I had to do a little research to figure out who came first… we did, but they went way further with their work! They take the most simple things and make them hysterical. I love them! Glad to know someone else appreciates them too!!

gailcalled's avatar

This is not amusing but poignant, touching and very beautiful.

El_Cadejo's avatar

I love how like 80% of the funny stuff involves animals

@gailcalled that video was indeed very beautiful

Berserker's avatar

Caesar Brutus dude, you should totally come to this party tonight! It’s gonna be killer!

Brutus Oh it’ll be killer alright…

Caesar Hahahahaha man don’t be creepy!

…does that help a bit or…XD

sakura's avatar

@uberbatman I think there is a whole programme dedicated to animals, called…animals do the stupidest things!

@linguaphile simplicity is often the key to comedy x

@gailcalled that was very moving, It didnt make me laugh but it made me think about the people I have that I love and who love me which made me happy

@symbeline went urgh but laughed too…thanks xx

El_Cadejo's avatar

Ohhhh man I totally forgot about this. Turtles love shoes

chewhorse's avatar

@sakura .. you liked that? Then take this..

An elderly retired couple went to a doctor. The man said, “We want to know if we are making love properly. Will you look at us?”
“Go ahead,” said the doctor. They made love. “You are making love perfectly,” the doctor said. “That will be $30.”
They came back six weeks in a row and did the same thing. On the seventh visit the doctor said, “What are you coming here like this for — I told you that you are making love properly!”

“She can’t come to my house,” said the man, “and I can’t go to her house. A motel costs $50. You charge us $30 and we get $20 back from Medicare.”
