A large segment of the human population takes things way too seriously for their own good. The strange anomaly is that most people laugh at the wrong thing and fail to laugh at the right thing. This serious incongruity has robbed people of a healthy attitude towards life in general. Those who take life too seriously are in danger of missing the great joys of living in a crazy world like ours. I am not sure about the scientific research but I would guess that for every sad moment it takes one hundred laughs to balance the books. Some people are about ninety-nine laughs short of a real sane moment. I like the old English proverb that says, “Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone.” From my perspective, if you cannot laugh with someone you will not be able to cry with him or her and have it mean anything.
