Day #529 Laugh Hard Every Day

One of my intentions this year is to Laugh Hard Every Day
Last night I watched a compilation of Carol Burnett Show sketches and laughed till I thought I was going to fall off my chair.
What was it about the curtain rod through the Scarlett costume that is so timelessly funny? Or the horse doing number 1 AND number 2 on the set as Carol tried to sing?
I wonder if bees have any sense of humor in their lives? Do they chuckle over a particularly strange arrangement of asters, for instance? Do they get a kick out of a more than usually enthusiastic waggle dance? Do they actively look for laughing brooks or twinkling reflections?
No. I guess not. 
That’s too bad. We could all gain a lot from laughing hard every single day.
BEEattitude for Day #529:
       Blessed are those who laugh at themselves, for they shall never grow bored.

Carol Burnett's show was fantastic and the curtain rod through the Scarlett O'Hara gown was my favorite! Then when she went on Mama's Family with Vicki Lawrence was great too! And I'd bet little fuzzies have a sense of humor too - all God's creatures have a 'funny bone': this is the day the Lord has made and I am going to rejoice in it! I'll bet fuzzies rejoice as well.

That's a good point, Petie. Maybe I just don't understand what a bee would find to BEE funny...

Just thinking about Carol's Scarlett O'Hara bit is still funny -- now that's good comedy.

I love the way Tim Conway would always try to make the other laugh, esp Harvey Korman. They were brilliant.

I agree, Cathy. The honest side-splitting laughter was the part that was the most fun about those shows. I'm glad I had a chance to experience it. And that I can still bring up a chuckle just thinking about it.
