    It Is Only Fair

    If you cannot laugh at yourself, you have no right to laugh at others!

    The days of glamorous airline stewardesses are

    gone. Recently I read that calling a flight attendant 'stewardess' is one of the sure-fire ways to obtain lousy service. And they're not big on anyone pushing the orange 'flight attendant' button overhead either ... unless there's some medical emergency going down.A flight...

    It means they are conscious of their flaws

    There Are Enough Serious Things In The World...

    We don't need to add to them. Besides - taking yourself too seriously has always seemed a bit like hard work!!!

    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. :)

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
