    So.

     Yeah... I laugh at everything. Even at inappropriate things. But, if I didn't laugh, I'd just cry and I'd rather not do that.

    If I couldn't laugh at how ridiculous some of the things going on in the world today are, I would have gone mad long ago.

    It Keeps You Sane.

    It Actually Works..

    If laughter did not exist, I would be a very miserable person and my life would be pointless to be living. I'm always stressed out and depressed but my sense of humor and laughter is what keeps me sane!!
