Laughter is the Best Medicine


Leigh T. Moore and Lydia Kang are hosting today's funtastical Laughter is the Best Medicine Blogfest. Check their blogs for a others participating, and your Monday is going to feel like a freakin' Saturday night!

Here are my attempts at humor for you today.

JOKE:
Have you seen the movie Constipated?
It never came out.
(My kids love that one!)

Fave funny books to check out: Picture Book - Guess Again by Mac Barnett Middle Grade: The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger Adult: Any book by Chelsea Handler
What funny books do you recommend?

Today's Twitter Game is #quirksnperksofawriter Play along with us!

Tomorrow I'll be Chris Phillips' guest for Music to Make Write To. Be sure to check out my picks! One is the funniest music video by this band. Here is their second funniest video. (Sidenote: I own a lavender I heart Davey Grolton shirt that the screaming fans are wearing in the video. And my family likes to say Saul Goode for kicks. Plus if this song is on in the car, we all cross our hands in front of our face at the end like in the video...)
LONG ROAD to RUIN by Foo Fighters

Laurel Garver said...

Your joke would be a big hit among my daughter's second grade class!

For funny books, I always get a kick out of Bridget Jones's Diary. It's wonderfully silly.

Kim Kasch said...

Laughter is the best medicine - and it might even help Constipation ;)

Stephen Tremp said...

Now that's funny. An Austin Posers type of humor. I like it!

Rachna Chhabria said...

That was a cool joke.

LTM said...

BAH!!! *snort* LOL at Constipated... My girls are going to DIE!!! :D

And hey! Funny book recs--how awesome! I loved the Sweet Potato Queens, but that's an oldie. Chelsea Handler is hilarious.

Dave Grohl is so hilarious. Thanks for playing, Kelly!!! <3

cleemckenzie said...

Kids love fart jokes and poop jokes and just about anything in that category. I find that most men do too. That must mean the "they never grow up" theory is true.

Jackee said...

Love that joke! Will have to try it out on my kids. :o) I'm also off to check out your MG rec. Thanks, Kelly!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

LOL at the joke. I'd tell it to my kids, but I'd never hear the end of it. ;)

DEZMOND said...

I should've expected a joke like that from you, Kells :)

Jennie Bailey said...

My nephew is going to LOVE that joke! I can't wait to tell him.

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Laughter is the best medicine. Thanks for the potty humor and the Foo Fighters. As for books, the Wimpy Kid books crack me up. And I thought some of the lines in Paper Towns (just read it) were hilarious.

Lola Sharp said...

I loved that joke so much I told it to my husband...who, after rolling his eyes because it was 'so dumb', started cracking up. :)

Also, natch, I love the Foo Fighters.

Hugs,
Lola

Donna Earnhardt said...

This isn't going to end well... (no pun intended)

Kelly said...
