Laughter is the best medicine; priceless medicine, fun, free and easy to use. A good, hearty laughter exercises and relaxes our body muscles, improves our respiration. Studies show that laughter has an anti-inflammatory effect that protects the blood vessels around the heart. This protects the heart from cardiovascular diseases. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect us against heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.
Laughter is the corrective force which prevents us from becoming cranks. I have not seen anyone dying of laughter, but I know millions who are dying because they are not laughing.
Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine. Laugh a lot, it burns a lot of calories. Laughing is, and will always be, the best form of therapy. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies and temporarily relieves pain.
Laughing increases our intake of oxygen-rich air, helping our heart and muscles. It activates our stress response -- increasing heart rate and blood pressure -- and then cools it down, leaving us with a sense of relaxation.
Spend time with people who make you laugh. The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. Laughter has a great way of bringing different people together. Draws people closer to each other. Laughter can even unite people during difficult times.

A man goes to library and asks for a book on Suicide......... Librarian looks at him and says: "hello.. who will return the book ? "

A man suffered a serious heart attack and had open heart bypass surgery. He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at a Catholic Hospital. As he was recovering, a nun asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment.
She asked, 'Do you have health insurance?' He replied in a raspy voice, 'No health insurance.' The nun asked, 'Do you have money in the bank?'
He replied, 'No money in the bank.' The nun asked, 'Do you have a relative who could help you?' He said, 'I only have a spinster sister, who is a nun. '
The nun became agitated and announced loudly, 'Nuns are not spinsters
! Nuns are married to God.' The patient replied, "Perfect. Send the bill to my brother-in-law."
Do You Know Me ?
How could an innocent question like "Do you know me? " end up like this? And why lawyers should never ask a witness a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.
In a trial, a Southern small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand -- a grandmotherly, elderly woman. He approached her and asked, " Mrs. Jones, do you know me ? " She responded, " Why, yes I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you. " The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, " Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney ? " She again replied, " Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention, he cheated on his wife with three different women -- one of them was your wife. Yes, I know him. " The defense attorney almost died. The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench, and in a very quiet voice, said, " If either of you bastards asks her if she knows me, I'll throw your sorry asses in jail for contempt."
