Laughter is the Best Medicine Blogfest


Hi everyone! Leigh T. Moore at That's Write and I are hosting a blogfest on Monday, May 16th. The idea came from one of Leigh's post featuring a joke that really got me laughing.

So we thought, how about a joke blogfest where we can make fun of ourselves a little?

Rules are pretty lax. This is fun, after all!

1. Post a joke that pokes fun at yourself, or writing, or your job (including parenting, of course!), or anything personal. Or if that's too much work, any joke that you think is funny will do.

The point is to laugh a little. And the posts ought to be quick and fun, so you can hop from post to post and lower your stress level a little.

Because let's face it. Laughter is good for you and has very few side effects (aside from shooting out food particles from your nose or spraying coffee at your computer screen).

All I can say is, you've been warned. ;)

What does it tell you that I'm giggling already... albeit a little maniacally, I admit... mooohoohaha...

And I should remind everyone, do not sit down just to 'check out the other entrants' while consuming things like coffee, scotch, or any kind of pasty... your computer screen will not forgive you...

I almost never do this stuff, but there are too many good psychologist jokes to pass this up. Great idea!

Estimada Lidya, estos días parece que estan realizando pruebas en el servidor Google, y han aparecido muchas cosas raras, entre ellas mis 2 blogs aparecían como "eliminados" despues de varios intentos logre entrar en mi blog pero posteriormente vi con sorpresa y decepcion que se habian borrado muchos enlaces de blogs que seguia, entre ellos el tuyo, lo comunique a Google pero aun no me han respondido, no me queda mas remedio que ir detectando los que se borraron y volver a seguirlos,
disculpa la molestia.
que tengas una feliz semana.
un abrazo.

Erik said...

This should be good!

cherie said...

How fun! I do Monday Funnies on my blog anyway, so why not spread the humor? Thanks for this fun opportunity. I'm looking forward to this, especially since I need funnies to feed me at the start of every week. ;)

Jon Mac said...

Sounds like fun.

Love the medical tips! I'm helping write blurbs for the SFWU online classes and just listened to a class about making setting a character. It's all about being intimately familiar with the uniqueness of your special place, which is then sprinkled through the novel. The same applies here. If you're writing about an addict, you've got to be able to write about the life of that person as if you have experienced it yourself!

The Red Angel said...

I'm all signed up and ready to go! ^_^ So excited! What a great idea for a blogfest.

Wow, this is weird -- something so freakishly funny happened TODAY that I was going to blog about it anyway. How's that for perfect timing? *curtsies*

I'm in! :D

It's 2pm on Monday in New Zealand (we are nearly a day ahead, so I did my post. Not sure if we are supposed to post it anywhere special, or just link from the list above. Anyway, here is mine if you want an early start:
