Care for a Little Chuckle?

Besides his gorgeous blue eyes, the thing that made me fall in love with my husband was his ability to make me laugh.  On the worst day he can make me giggle. From my worst mood he can force a smile. In the worst situation he can find the humour.  It is for this, while those blue eyes still get me,  that I am most thankful.

Charlie Chaplin once said, "A day without laughter is a day wasted."  A simple comment that speaks a profound truth.  Laughter makes a cloudy day less grim, a sunny day a little brighter. It's good for body, mind and soul — an antidote for pain and stress. It triggers endorphins, relaxes the muscles and gives a generous boost to one's immune system.

What tickles a funny bone varies from person to person. Some need to be hit over the head, others prefer the soft sell approach. Some like slapstick, some like dry and subtle. Either way, humour makes a day, and even a smile can make a difference. So while they may not make you laugh out loud, these terrific collections by some of my favourite cartoon illustrators at least warrant a chuckle or two.
