Friday Fun: Jokes, Humor, Comedy

Feeling a bit stressed? Maybe a little laughter could take the edge off! According to the documentary Laughology (2nd-floor DVDs, Academic, BF575.L3 L28 2010), laughing is a great way to reduce stress. And it’s good for your heart (see “Laughter is Good for Your Heart, According to a New UMMC Study“)!
