    Because I Can

    I laugh at myself all of the time. I do some really silly, stupid stuff sometimes. People need to be able to realize when they do silly, funny things.

    Ok, have you ever said something,

    and everybody laughs (but you don't get it) so they laugh harder, then you start laughing....on a whole diffrent level, which makes them laugh. Even harder.... Cuz they know you never got it (the joke) in the 1st place (yeah, try & keep up) WELL, that's me! Evidently hilarious...

    It means they are conscious of their flaws

    Laughter's The Best Medicine For Embarrassment

    You know, like the face plant in front of a bunch of students at school. Or even an embarrassing story about yourself. Laugh with them, it'll make you feel not only better, but also much more brave.

    Enjoy The Joke Too

    I won't laugh at someone else, but I will always laugh at myself. I will be the first person to crack a joke at my own expense. I like people who are comfortable enough with themselves that they never have a problem laughing at themselves. It shows an ease of character and enough...

    I Have To

    Because of my condition, I have to be able to laugh about it, because I would be bitter otherwise. You should see the looks I get when I want to buy beer.

    Laughter

    If you can't laugh at yourself from time to time, what can you laugh at at all?People tend to get ground down in misery, it's all around us, on the news, in the papers and worst of all it the daily tripe in soaps...I say everybody need to laugh at themselves from time to time...

    Life is short. Enjoy the mishaps

    and believe that things happen for a reason and something better will come along for you in the right time when you least expect it. We never get out of this life alive. Laugh when you need to laugh. Even at yourself. People will thank you for not bein so uptight. :)

    The days of glamorous airline stewardesses are

    They're More Fun :)

    People who can laugh at themselves are generally more fun to be around and they tend to be more likable than people who take themselves too seriously. It's also a requirement for people who desire a friendship with me. I make fun of EVERYONE. I try my best not to push any limits...

    Its Good To Be Able To Have A Good Sense Of Humor

    I like it when I can laugh at myself and its nice when others are like this too. Life is too short to be super serious. Sometimes life throws a curve ball and its good to be able to laugh it off. I do dumb stuff sometimes but who cares! its life.
