Time for a Laugh

Hi there. I hope some of you tried to have a Canadian Thanksgiving.I know some of my students were planning to try cooking turkey for the first time. I'm looking forward to hearing all about it. Our turkey was so good it practically melted in our mouth.  We all ate too much, drank too much, told too many jokes. I laughed more than I have in a long time and realized how much I enjoyed laughing. Research keeps telling us how good laughter is for us, and yet none of us laugh much. Even when we do, it is never long, deep or hard enough.

Laugh of the Day: 

Here is a two minute podcast that will hopefully make you laugh. I just came across it, listened, laughed and thought it was too good not to share. CBC Radio features a lot of great shows, many of which become podcasts. Laugh of the Day features a two minute segment from a a comedian' performing  for a live audience. Listen to Jim McNally talk about Thanksgiving if you want a taste of real Canadian humour. Try playing it a few times. I hope you enjoy it. There are many more two minutes laugh of the day segments. Try them out to see if you "get" any of the humour. 

Baby Ha Ha Ha  

While  I'm on the subject, try watching this short video of a baby laughing. Let me know if you think laughter isn't contagious. That means you can catch it from others - like a cold.
