Live Lighter by finding a joke; sharing a joke

Jokes are everywhere.

But we often don’t take time to hear or tell them. Most of the time it’s just a matter of being too busy to stop and listen.

Other times, we avoid jokes because they come at someone else’s expense.

But we can change that.

We can find the kind.

The light.

The positive.


For example-

My friend loves Chuck Norris jokes.

The other day she sent me a text,

Do you know why there’s no life on Mars?

Church Norris got there first.


And just because I can hear her laughing somewhere, here’s a few more-

Chuck Norris once fought superman.
The loser had to wear his underwear over his pants.

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.

When a zombie apocalypse starts, Chuck Norris doesn’t try to survive. The zombies do.
Chuck Norris narrates Morgan Freeman’s life.


Jokes can reveal the less threatening side of just about anything, even religion.

I started out leading a marriage conference once by telling this one,

A little girl asked her mother, “How did the human race appear?”

The mother answered, “God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so all mankind was made.”

Two days later, the girl asked her father the same question.

The father answered, “Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.”

The confused girl returned to her mother and said, “Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?”

The mother answered, “Well dear. It’s very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his.”


And here’s one of my son’s favorites-

A preacher buys a lawnmower from his neighbor but he can’t get it to run.

He goes to his neighbor and says, “Why can’t I get the lawnmower to work?”

The neighbor says, “Oh, to get it to work, you have to curse it.”

The preacher says, “But I haven’t cursed in 30 years!”

The neighbor says, “In that case, just keep trying to start it. It’ll come back to you.”



Today’s challenge-

Get someone to tell you their favorite joke and share one of your favorite jokes with them. If you want to do it visually, share a funny image with words or a video that really gets you laughing.

PLEASE come to the Facebook group and share them with us!  I’d love to make our hump day a happy one.

Come share your funnies, please!
