Who or what was the last person or thing that made you laugh out loud?

Asked by deaddolly (3431points) October 14th, 2008

Something or someone that made you forget all your problems and the world’s problems, if only for an instant. Does it still make you giggle?

My dog ran into the sliding screen door not realizing it was closed. I have never seen a dog look embarrased but she did. She refused to go out that door for months. I still laugh about it.

Milo, of course – several times a day. Last night after hearing several very loud crashes, I discovered he had knocked down most of the pressed panel boards and metal framework that had been my laundry room ceiling.

The reason I go to work every day is for the laughs. Most recently about 3 hours ago my trainer made me laugh when she described the wildlife at her new vacation cottage, evidently its mating season and her property is where they all come to “hook up”. About 45 minutes ago I watched the “best and worst” on Countdown.

gailcalled's avatar

@galileogirl :Mating season in October? Where is this cottage, anyway? S. of the border?

Here the wildlife are packing up the brood and heading to the Antilles or preparing for hybernation. I am finding nuts and birdseed stored in my Wellies.

Man, this is actually a hard question. I laugh out loud almost every day at any number of things. Co-workers, clients, friends, myself, the squirrels, this cat outside yesterday stalking some birds, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carrell in the Office, so many Flutherers…

I really don’t know what was the last thing. For some reason when I think of a fall back laugh, right now, I think of Michael Scott singing about Toby during the last season finale of the Office.

My 3 year old daughter.

We were taking her grandma to see her preschool and she said “I tell ya grandma it’s pretty amazing.”

My daughter, she is the bestest ever. Anything that little sweetie says makes me crack up, We just watched the movie Labriynth, and loved the song “Power of the Babe” or what ever by Bowie. We must have watched it at least ten times since and she sings it, randomly though out the day. That makes me laugh, smile and love.

Someone said they don’t trust the mainstream media, so they get all their news from Fox, Bill O’Reilly, and their accountant.

O how I chuckled…

My best friend, “S” and I were in a store, and she had neglected to remove her sunglasses. I handed her a tube of makeup, telling her it was too dark for me & she could have it. I never mentioned what kind of makeup it was. While in line at the checkout, she reached in her pocket, pulled it out and began reading it. “How can this be too dark” she said, “when it says it’s unnoticable?” She then proceeded to put it on her lips, thinking it was lipgloss. I tried to stop her, saying “but…wait…no” Unable to get the words out, I yanked off her sunglasses so she could see it and shouted “it’s concealer!” As I am much fairer skinned than she, her lips were a lovely shade of cream. We laughed so hard…she ran out of the store, leaving me there to finish the transaction, laughing uncontrollably. The people in line behind me actually left the line. It’s good to have friends!

Someone sent me some Maxine cartoons this morning. Several made me smile, a couple even got a chuckle out of me, but this one made me laugh out loud:

“Men are always whining about how we’re suffocating them.
Personally, I think if you can hear them whining, you’re not pressing hard enough on the pillow!”

gailcalled's avatar

Hmm. Someone sent me some Maxine cartoons this morning, too

This one made ME laugh out loud. “Ever got the feeling that your stuff strutted off without you?”

marinelife's avatar

@gc Any chance “your stuff” is a euphemism for a guy?

Marina: Give me a minute while I ask a very good friend of mine to do an “explication du texte”;and what about this one? “Anyone can have the body of a 21-year-old if she buys him a few drinks first”?

Tonight’s episode of House made me chuckle a couple of times. Actually, tonight’s episode of House made me feel better than I’ve felt since May. Which is really a little bit pathetic, but that’s okay.

A just-in PM from Knot . “I surprised Drake in the act of undercutting the foundation of the house- he’d been digging for weeks. I had to rent a tractor to backfill his exavation. Apparently his doghouse wasn’t suitable… (Forgive me, Knot. Too funny not to share with other pet slaves.)

Knotmyday's avatar

- as an aside, Drake actually sleeps indoors. His “house” is just a place to hang out, drink water, and enjoy a fan while he plays outside in the Arizona sun… but apparently he has a miner’s instinct. Or a hobbit’s. Or…a mole’s? Thankfully the house still stands. What a bugger-head.

My five-year-old daughter walks in the kitchen to find my wife “speaking” to her recently deceased Aunt’s picture (which is hung on the fridge).

My daughter looks at her mother – looks at me and flatly says, “she knows she’s dead…right?”

My wife and I fell on the floor laughing.

gail: Sonoma County, north of San Francisco. It may not be actually mating season but the critters probably don’t have a calendar. Ten days ago we had our first real rain since April and there is green everywhere so maybe they think it is spring.

@Galileo: Interesting. We have been awash until this week. (I keep wanting to type my name instead of yours.

I recorded my husband’s snoring on my cell phone, because he didn’t believe me that he snored. Then today I was in my car, and have hands-free – you know, through the radio when I use my cell in the car? So I listened to my messages, and when his snoring came over the radio I rolled my windows down so everyone walking by (I was stopped at a light) would hear loud snoring coming from my car. I just couldn’t stop laughing.

Well, I was going to say that the last thing that made me laugh out loud was my friends at Dennys about a half hour ago but then I watched the video that uberbatman provided.

Allie's avatar

I have moments daily where I laugh out loud. Most of them are when I’m with my friends or my mom. My mom is one of the funniest people in my life, no matter what my mood is she always makes me laugh.

That was mine brother.The best laugh is only with him even it is sarkastik joke.

Tonight (last night), my friend told me her encounter with the porn stars on her last vacation. The girl call herself a Pleasure Technician…

Uberbatman’s second link is the very last thing to make me laugh out loud. Before that it was When You are Engulfed in Flames.

It makes me laugh most Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

5 minutes ago McCain said I would be rich because I would have $5000 to choose my own medical insurance. The laugh comes if I try to buy insurance with a recent history of cancer, heart attack, stroke and hundreds of $$ in meds each month.

Last week, my crazy group was getting together. And one guy, who apparently didn’t know much about the internet said, “I don’t even know how to get on MyFace!”

Everyone burst out laughing, and we didn’t stop for ten minutes. Then I said that because we were all laughing, I didn’t bother to say the comeback that occurred to me. “I didn’t realize you were a contortionist. Why would you even want to be on your face.” Well, whatever. There’s a hundred possible comebacks. None were needed.

eatmunky's avatar

I already posted but this just happened and it was too funny. There’s a guy at work named Michael Hawkins, and someone just said this to me in all seriousness:

“Mike Hawkins eyed you.”

Listen to it phonetically… ooo boy I had a hearty chuckle.

Obama was great. “My greatest weakness? Its possible that im a little too awesome”

I love how he’s so deadpan through most of it, but there’s that one part where he laughs a little and it cracks everyone else up even more, too.

I asked my little sister to blow me a kiss tonight as I was leaving for work, and she made this disgusting noise and wiggled her tongue all over the place. It was HILARIOUS. and nasty, but that’s beside the point.

My daughter and I were delivering Girl Scout cookies this afternoon, and a pregnant lady answered the door. My daughter chose THAT time to ask, “Is there a Quickie Badge” ??
She had mixed the word quiet and cookie….because I am sure she doesn’t know what a QUICKIE IS!!! Boy did that lady and I laugh!

A co worker in his barely 40’s came and informed he has “old people smell” according to his stepkids and thinks it to do with his blood pressure medicine. I don’t think he has the smell but the crease between his brows was cracking me up.

My sister put on a CD with rap from the 80s and 90s and was grooving and she was getting all excited. It was absolutely hilarious how she was dancing and singing in the car. I did think we would’ve gotten into an accident if I hadn’t turned down the music

My coworker had hives, and she asked if I had any allergy medication. Actually, I do keep a few spare ones for my daughter in my anti-anxiety pill bottle, but I hardly ever use the bottle. So I went with her to give her the pills, and when they spilled out onto her hand, the pink allergy pills were covered with WHITE POWDER!! It looked bad, but I laughed and said that it was just powder from the disintegrating anti-anxiety pills, which I hardly ever used. I said, “Well, you’ll get rid of the hives AND take the edge off!” She popped the pills and then LICKED HER PALM! Every time I thought of it, I chuckled.


I once saw a girl walking and texting away in a shopping mall, oblivious to what was around her, totally absorbed in her texting, so much so that she fell into a big fountain and got soaking wet. She got out of the pool, extremely embarrassed, and resumed walking and texting as if nothing happened. Lol. Pretty bad and ungentlemanly of me to laugh at that I must admit. :(
