So I, er, I mean a random blonde went to the post office to buy stamps for her Christmas cards. Here’s what went down:
Blonde: May I have 50 Christmas stamps?
Clerk: What denomination?
Blonde: Oh my God! Has it come to this? Fine. Give me 6 Catholic, 12 Presbyterian and 32 Baptist.
Laughing yet? I hope so, because laughter is good for your heart—literally. A study conducted at the University of Maryland Medical Center showed that people with heart disease are 40 percent less likely to laugh with ease. Research has also linked laughter with an improved capability to manage stress and fewer instances of stress and anxiety. (Geesh… Sign me up!)
I’ve always admired people who guffaw at just about anything or find hilarity in popular comedies I find treacherous to sit through. But just when I suspect I lack some funny bones, something comes along and strikes me as FUUUUU—NNY. I start laughing and can’t stop until tears pool in my eyes, my belly aches and my bladder control grows questionable. Y’all kept me laughing through my Naughty & Nice fun. I figured it was time to reciprocate.
Recently, this was my HAHA inspiration:
HAAAAAA!!!!!!! See what I MEAN??? This hat isn’t only hilarious, but so darn useful. A few potential uses, off the top of my HEAD. LOL! (*slinking down* Okay, not as funny.)
With a turkey hat, you can:
1. …bring light to a serious situation. Imagine, you’re sitting at a table full of relatives who have as much in common as lightbulbs and kumquats. The silence is so thick, you fear breathing. You bust out this bad boy and every straight lip curves upward, or opens wide to LOL.
2. …make a statement for animal rights. (For added power, carry a sign: “You think eating animals looks goofy?”)
3. …start a fashion trend. (Hey, if Zubaz could do it…)
4. …keep your as head as warm stuffing.
5. …make others fear they’ve gone crazy. (“What do you mean, what’s on my head?”)
6 …eat herb-seasoned bread bits to your heart’s desire.
7. …play the “put this on your head game.”
8. …top off your turkey dinner Halloween costume.
9. …give the gift of laughter to everyone on your list. Think about it: Christians, Jews and atheists may disagree on certain points, but they ALL have heads. They also either eat or avoid chicken. You simply can’t go wrong. (Since the hat isn’t edible, no worries on whether it’s kosher.)
10. …create holiday memories to last a lifetime. (Yep, planning on this myself.)
