    My dad got really mad at me

    for some reason, and then all of a sudden I start bursting out laughing and I couldn't stop, and he said what? And I didn't know why I was laughing so hard.

    I laughed when a friend of mine fell off of a

    cabinet and broke his left arm. I laughed harder when we put him on a stretcher and carried him to the clinic. I laughed the hardest when the nurse at the clinic said that he was lucky he broke his left arm (well, he was left-handed, and it seemed pretty funny). I still laugh...

    I have a tendency to laugh at things

    that nobody finds funny. For instance I was at a restaurant with my family and I ordered a grilled chicken salad with the chicken on the side. when the salad came the chicken came cut up in little pieces in a dish. I asked my daughter if she wanted to try some of my chicken bits...

    There was a gathering of the Gods back in the

    day, plenty of wine, women and song. Thor, the almighty God of Thunder took a particular liking to one of the wood nymphs who had a lisp. After a big of small talk they disappeared into the woods for a bit of fun. After a time, well a few times, Thor realised that he didn't...

    I tend to laugh when I am nervous.

    ..so i don't do so hot in certain work situations...a handful of times a boss has yelled at me at work and if I can not manage to hold back the laugh the situation tends to escalate unnecessarily...I guess "can't help it" is not a valid excuse even when it's the truth

    I can never do yoga. Why?

    I tend to burst out laughing in calm, quiet settings. Especially when people relax a little too much and let a little fart go. Sometimes going to church is also a problem...yikes

    My grandmother had an unusual first name.

    When she passed. she'd not belonged to a church in many years so my dad found a random minister to officiate her funeral. This poor man mispronounced her name all through the service and my younger sister and I could not stop giggling. We were sad so it felt great to laugh...

    I have a lot of jokes

    and funny pictures in my head, waiting patiently for an inappropriate situation for me to remember them. Or sometimes someone might say something serious but it'll remind of something stupid and I won't be able to hold my laughter. haha

    I am not sure this is inappropriate laughter,

    but I work off by myself in my own corner of an open warehouse space. I listen to audio books and podcasts all day. Often I will freak out my coworkers by suddenly erupting into hysterical laughter.

    There have been times

    where a chuckle was totally inappropriate, and I couldn't help myself. I was in an equal opportunity and treatment class, and the first thing the teacher said, was "retard jokes aren't funny." I had just seen The Hangover, and remember Zack Gala-howeveryouspellhisname's line...

    have either been the only one laughing, excused myself out of the room due to laughing, or been spoken to about my laughing. Good times.

    When They Fall

    I am horrible at laughing at people when they fall. I find it hilarious, and I cannot help it. Of course, I'm not mean about it and will help them up, but I can't help but laugh. I'm sorry in advance if you ever fall in front of me :)

    I was at a western horse show

    and a girl fell off her horse and was badly injured. When paramedics arrived they opened their doors and blaring from their vehicle was Another one bites the dust by queen. I laughed very hard and kept getting dirty looks from people.

    I would have to run out of the store

    so I could burst out laughing. It would probably be a huge disaster if I was with one of my friends or sisters. This is honestly quite rude but im sure many people on this section can relate to it lol. https://vine.co/v/eDPWXxgXgAX

    when you're not supposed to laugh. The worst thing is that when people start losing their s**t I really want to laugh. well angry people are funny but they're going to get even angrier if they see me laughing at them! I used to do it in school too, that got me in trouble - the...

    This is probably one of my most annoying traits!

    When I face an awkward situation I can't help but giggle! It seems the more I try to refrain from my typical response the more I can't help but burst out laughing -.-'

    When I find myself in situations I never

    thought to be in, I have this urge to burst into laughter. So to be polite in respect to those who seem so intensely involved, I would suppress with difficulty the laughter that threatened to come out.

    Every single movie I've watched the same thing

    happens. If it's a drama then I'm laughing at the most inappropriate times ever. Every time someone tells me about a very bad moment in their lives, I'm trying desperately not to laugh. I mean seriously every time I feel uncomfortable I start laughing!
