Is it Possible to Actually Laugh your Arse off?


I was going to pose the question "why don't I like the word 'conumdrum' " as I mentioned it in a recent post, but then I thought, here are these age old unanswered questions on the header page of my blog, and why don't we examine them in more detail?

So, Question 1: Is it possible to actually laugh your arse off?

I am not going to research medical evidence here - I will leave that to rainbowsox if they ever come back up for air, because that seems to be their bag, to dredge up an old expression. But I expect they, or perhaps Marysia would be able to find some internet story of mirth induced prolapse somewhere, and that's as close as I want to get. Anyway, technically that would only be laughing your arse out.

But that whole phenomena of the all-out-belly-laugh is an odd one. It's something that happens to me a lot less these days and I miss it. Not that I am unhappy, I'm not, and I still laugh often, but it is in a dryer, more wryly amused way rather than actually ROTFLMAO. I'm not sure why this is.

I remember student days when a simple quip by a friend could send us into endless giggles, gasping and clasping our sides. Or watching movies. When Arthur looked up at the stuffed head on the wall and said to Mr Johnson, "You must have hated this moose," it made me properly laugh out loud. Now I just chuckle at Seinfeld, but I still think some of his scenes are the funniest TV ever. I don't know, maybe when you get older you've heard them all before.

Thoughts anyone?

Well I don't do so much rolling on the floor laughing any more....maybe because it's getting harder to get up off the floor....but I feel I have become more cynical. I do however have a good old belly laugh at some of the antics on Mrs Brown's Boys...but you need to be in Ireland to get a few of the jokes.

Sadly I have never been able to bear Mrs Brown's boys, and I don't think not being in Ireland has anything to do with it!

But I agree, it is hard not to become more cynical, however, I plan to keep trying. I remember, again from student days, admiring a friend's father who despite seeming ancient, was always up to date with anything new that was going on, and had a real zest for life. I always hoped I would become like him, and sometimes I manage it. But it is a constant battle, and we need to maintain our youthful attitudes SS.

Damn, I knew I should have saved that meme about laughing ones arse off.

The last time I laughed so much I was crying and having trouble breathing, was during one scene in the latest Bridget Jones film.

Sometimes it just takes the simplest thing to set you off doesn't it. But why doesn't it happen so often any more? That's what I want to know.......

You might be able to sell "Laugh your Arse Off" as the latest weight loss gimmick.

Those moments usually happen around the dinner table here, inevitably when someone has just taken a drink and is trying not to choke or spit it all over from laughing. My daughter and I have the same sarcastic, twisted sense of humor and DH doesn't stand a chance against the pair of us.

You want to stop the flame from burning. I just want to let it go...

Ah yes, the old well-timed quip just as someone takes a mouthful, lol.

Good idea for the weight loss program!

    Laughter burns calories, laughing hard and uncontrollably even more calories, sooooo, if you a rather larger posterior (aka arse), then you are literally laughing it off!

    Obviously, we have "come up for air", or as much as can be with as crazy as life has been lately!!! Not complaining mind you, crazy IS a good thing!

    Uncontrolled laughter generally needs two - to - tango, or would that be, two - to - giggle? When it happens with us, it is usually because one of us starts (me) and then the other cannot resist the evil. Next thing we know, we are consumed with ungodly sounding snorts that only perpetuate the pain, eventually, having no idea what started the laughter, only that we cannot stop! Thankfully, we have had MANY of these treasured moments lately... which is nice as the extra holiday calories could have resulted in some ginormous arses!!!!

    Miss you!
    Love,
    -E'


See - I knew it was an age thing - younger people laugh more and have smaller arses! Actually I think I need to go running more because mine seems to have got smaller too!
