When they say ‘laughter is the best medicine’ they weren’t joking at all. It is proven scientifically that being happy affects the body positively in so many ways, contrary to stress states when the body secretes hormones like cortisol that suppresses our immunities, plus being happy, or just smiling, is easier to do.
However, what makes men and women laugh are also proven scientifically to be very different things. Women prefer what you may call ‘smart jokes’ whereas men would laugh till they drop with slapstick humor. Usually, what women will find dangerous, offending, or a medical emergency is what men considers as ‘funny’.
As I was reading through an old Reader’s Digest issue I found lying somewhere in the house, I found two interesting jokes that sure made me laugh – and yes, these two are more of the smart jokes.
A priest, a rabbi, and a minister are in a boat out in the middle of a lake. The priest says, “I’m thirsty. I’m going to get something to drink.” So he steps out of the boat, walks across the water to shore, gets a soda, walks back across the water and gets back in the boat.
The minister syas, “I’m thirsty too.” So he walks acrossthe water to shore, gets a soda and walks back to the boat.
The rabbi says, “My turn.” He gest out of the boat and immediately sinks.
The priest turns to the minister. “Think we should’ve told him where the rocks were?”
A priest, a rabbi and a minister decide to see who’s the best at his job. So they each go into the woods, find a bear and attempt to convert it. Later they get together.
The priest begins. “When I found the bear, I read to him from the Catechism and sprinkled him with holy water. Next week is his first communion.”
“I found a bear by the stream,” says the minister, “and preached God’s holy word. The bear was so mesmerized that he let me baptize him.”
they both looked down at the rabbi who is wrapped in a body cast. “Looking back,” he says, “maybe I shouldn’t have started with the circumcision.”
