100 Things - Snorting with Laughter

Continuing on with my updated list of 100 things that make me tick, I give you:

10 Things That Make Me Laugh!

1. Pranks. Oh, how I love pranks! Vaseline on the doorknob. Saran Wrap on the toilet seat. Simple or elaborate it doesn't matter. I love watching pranks happen and participating in said pranks. I laugh hysterically.

2. Crude humor. Fart jokes, sex jokes, cussing, Samuel L. Jackson saying "motherf*cker" - you name it. I'm pretty easy to please.

3. My kids' laughter. Oh, yes. When my kids crack themselves up, I'm right there with them. Their laughter is pretty infectious, but in a good way!

4. My husband. People, let me just say that real comedian of the family is the Ty-man. Dude is hysterical!

5. Eddie Izzard and Robin Williams. My two favorite comics. I could watch and laugh over Robin Williams for hours.

6. Porn. Oh, come on. How can porn not be funny? Sex noises that don't even match the actors' facial expressions and cheesy plots. Not to mention naked men. With their socks still on. I'm cracking up right now just thinking about it!

7. Physical comedy. Matthew Perry on Friends. John Ritter on Three's Company. Don Knotts in anything. Chris Farley. Rowan Atkinson. I will roll on the floor.

8. Drunk people. I'm not talking about over the legal limit drunks who need a stint in rehab because they're that drunk every night. I'm talking about frat-boy drunks. Watching that happen is just too funny. And I'd rather watch than participate because I'm not a funny drunk, but a sleeping drunk.

9. Ty-man's cousin-in-law Sean. How happy I am that cousin Ashley married Sean. He is, by far, my reason for celebrating Christmas each year. The family gathers and I spend three days laughing at and with Sean and his special brand of humor.

10. My children's whining. Oh, yeah. When I'm in a great mood and the twins decide to just start whining and quivering that bottom lip because, oh, it's not their birthday but they want their birthday presents NOW, two months ahead of time, I just have to laugh. In front of them. Probably scarring them for life. Oh, well.

Well guys, we're doing great! Getting closer and closer to the end. Tomorrow? Ten things about my body. Scary!

You're talking about Robin Williams pre-rehab, right? Because he stopped being funny in the last 15 years.

That One said...

Totally agree with you on #2 (Especially Samuel L. Jackson - dude has "motherf*cker" NAILED. He should trademark it.), #s 5, 6, 7, and 8 (especially trying to have a conversation with a happy drunk. whee!), too. I'd probably crack up at your family but since I don't know them, I can't include them.

We should totally be best buds. :)

I'll have to check out Eddie Izzard...Robin Williams (from past) was definitely hilarious. And I had SUCH a kid crush on John Ritter; even at that age I knew I wanted a guy who could make me laugh.
You know, one of the most important things I look for in potential friend material is their sense of humor - it has to basically match mine. Don't like fahhht jokes or crude humor? Sorry, can't be friends. You can't possibly watch inane movies like Anchorman or Tommy Boy? Kick your ass to the curb!
I'm weird like that.

Eddie Izzard is brilliant! Love him. :)

Expat No. 3699 said...

I put Vaseline on my daughter's doorknob when she first went into a 'big bed'. She would keep getting up out of bed and coming downstairs, so I closed the door. After a while she was able to open the door, so I put Vaseline on the knob (this was before they came out with those safety handle thingies).

The little bugger figured out that she could drag the blanket off her bed and wipe off the handle.

Not Afraid to Use It said...

That's a great list! I am with you on the physical comedy. I know Matthew Perry gets on people's nerves, but one of our favorite movies is Fools Rush In. If it is on TV, we've got it on.

I was a prank master for many years, but I haven't played so much as an April Fool Joke in a long time. It's probably time to start again.

Crude humor is my favorite and Samuel L. Jackson is hilarious. He's the only reason I could watch Snakes on a Plane more than once. Rowan Atkinson could have me cry-laughing just standing still. (I almost said just walking down the street but that is too easy.)

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Avitable - Oh, yeah. Post-rehab he lost it.

Tuli - He was the whole reason for seeing Snakes on a Plane! And best buds? I'm with you!

Molly's Mom - Oh, John Ritter was a young hottie. And? You're not weird. I'm with you on needing friends who know how to laugh.

Gypsy - He is!

Employee #3699 - HA! That's awesome! Smart kid!

NATUI - Matthew Perry makes me laugh so hard I fart. Seriously.

Miss Night Owl - Wow. You seriously need to start your pranking back up. I'll be a willing accomplice!
