How spontaneous are you? For example, when you are watching a movie like 'Hungama', and hear this dialogue:
Paresh Rawal(to wifey): Where are you going with this hippypotamous?
Wifey: This is a dog not a hippypotamous
Paresh Rawal: I'm talking to the dog.--------------------
or,'Awara Paagal Deewana', where Paresh Rawal keeps forgetting his name and everyone else's, calls himself everything from Chunilal to Methilal to Manilal to...:)--------------------
or, Seinfeld,talking of laundry day(Let me reproduce that hilarious dialogue here), in his inimitable somewhat sarcastic voice:
"Laundry-day" is the only exciting day in the live of clothes.
It is...no, think about it: the washing machine is the nightclub of clothes. Ya know, it's dark, there's bubbles happening, they're all kind a dancing around in there...shirt grabs the underwear: "C'mon babe, let's gather".
You come by, you open up the lid and they'll: [shows how clothes are acting when you open the lid]...Socks are the most amazing article of clothing. They hate their lives, they're in the shoes with stinky feet, the boring drawers...the dryer is their only chance to escape and they all know it. They knew a escape from the dryer.
They plan it in the hamper, the night before: [sock's voice] "Tomorrow, the dryer, I'm goin'...you wait here!" The dryer-door swings open and the sock is waiting up against the side wall. They hope you don't see him and then he goes down the road [shows how the sock is going down the road]. They got buttons sowed on their faces: join the puppet show...
So they're showing me on television the detergent for getting out blood-stains...Is this a violent image to anybody? Blood-stains? I mean, I, come on, you got a T-shirt with blood-stains all over it, maybe laundry isn't your biggest problem right now...Maybe you oughtta get the harpoon out your chest first.
Do such situations make you guffaw out loud? And, at what time?
- Even when you're alone?
- When you're with someone to whom you want to show off your sense of humour?
- When you're with a staid looking group of old fuddy-duddies who look bemused at what they are watching,when they'd rather be out making a potful of money,rather than 'wasting'their time watching slapstick?- When you're with a group of like-minded people?
If your answer is 'yes' to all three, I'm your friend for life.(As such, I consider my fav. bloggers as 'friends for life'...ahem!!Hope they do,too!) I love such people. I love their zest for life. Only too often, people don't tend to laugh at the funniest of situations,and I wonder what's holding them back?Instead,they tend to find faults even with such situations, and comment on how 'sick' the comedian is. Come on,guys(n gals), if comedy wasn't meant to be a part of our lives,to lighten us up, make our hearts pump better,it wouldn't be around, would it?
It reminds me of this good friend of mine from school days. He's in Bahrain now. We used to go to movies together, in school days. And, he had this knack of going off into peals of laughter, sometimes at the silliest of reasons, which would set me off as well.(Even now,whenever we meet, there's always at least one situation,where we remember some incident and laugh non-stop like we've gone mad.LOL). And, he had this further habit,of repeating the lines which made him laugh, which made the situation sound even funnier. I wish I knew someone like him in Dubai. But, I don't. People are too busy with their DGDG(Din Gin, Dirham Gin) philosophy, most of the time.
Well, anyway, I'm glad I have an outlet on my blog for such moments.And, glad to have all of you around, who laugh with me, who give me some laughs,too!!:)
----And,here's the scientific reasons why laughter's good for you:
Joke time:Nike has come out with a new pair of shoes just for Lesbi*ns. The brand's called "Dyke." It's got a nine-inch tongue and you can get it off with one finger.
Brassi*re: An over-the-shoulder boulder holder
Till the next post, keep laughing/smiling/grinning/LOLling/ROFLling or whatever it is that you do when you visit my blog!!*rolls ----eyes, of course!*
