So, you want to be funny, huh? To speed up your comic ability, here's a free intro to Sophy's Razor Club... play games with acute verbal dexterity, become a smooth, keen talker, speed up your responses and sound sharper.
You too can be a first-class jokester without having to wait for someone to fall down or spill coffee down their pants (pause for a moment, imagine someone falling, now laugh - here's a cartoon to help you if you're imaginatively impaired).
Got tension? Get rid of it with a few easy, one liners. Don't argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
Day 1: Lose your sense of seriousness, and do something out of the norm. While you might be burning calories carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, you'll burn more with gut-busting belly laughs.
Day 2: Laugh again. That's it. Just laugh. *When all else fails, get even!
Day 6: Make a joke file. Material doesn't grow on trees, ya' know. So, write funny stuff down. Ask people for jokes and start collecting them. As for me, I quit worrying about the dishes and asked my kids to write me jokes instead. Now, we have loads of dirty dishes to make fun of... and some fancy dish gloves, too!
