    If you have a good sense of humour,

    I'm sure you can make anyone smile, why would you want to be so serious?!

    I saw this on a humor website,

    and had to share..... A lawyer named Strange died, and his friend asked the tombstone maker to inscribe on his tombstone, "Here lies Strange, an honest man and a lawyer." The inscriber insisted that such an inscription would be confusing, for passers-by would tend to think that...

    It Is One Of The Main Things That Keeps My Wife And I Close.

    I think for any relationship to last, it is important to be able to laugh with one another through the good times and bad.

    Everyone's life sucks.

    It doesn't matter if you're living as a suburbanite in a "first world" country, a rag picker in India or a member of European royalty, there are things about your life that suck. Having a sense of humor makes life not to bad. And dwelling on the "bad" things will make you...

    I really like people

    who have a good sense of humor. Sometimes it's hard to make me really laugh because I have a weird sense of humor but I love making people laugh and I love to laugh. I would love to have some more friends with a good sense of humor.

    Laughing is not only good

    for the attitude but also for the body. It relieves so much stress and anxiety. Look at life as if it is filled with humor. Deal with the horrors of life, but always look at the positive that will come from it.

    I think a good sense of humor is important

    because it explains the type of person you are. A happy person, and if somebody never laughs or smiles then that means they're miserable inside or just plain mean. Not the kind of person to be around.
