This week for Writer’s Quote #3 Marsha has given us Belly Laughs…
The new year had arrived and he’d proclaimed
That it was time for a lifestyle change
He didn’t want anything experimental
So he found a class, one that’s gentle
When he entered he was quite pleased
When they said they’d take things gently
They started with some gentle stretches
But then they laughed, those awful wretches!
He’d bent himself into each shape
But each time he did some wind escaped
It announced itself into the room
Often with a mighty boom!
He tried to ignore it and carry on
But each seemed louder than the last one
Supposedly yoga’s meant to be relaxing
In the end, he found it mighty taxing!
Sorry about this Marsha, but hopefully it might give you a belly laugh or two! Unfortunately, my type of humour is quite juvenile. bodily functions are easily humourous. One of my closest friends is a nurse and she regularly has me laughing until my stomach aches and it’s usually bodily function related!
I love a wicked sense of humour; dark, witty, tongue-in-cheek are all far funnier to me than slapstick style comedy. I work with a brilliant group of lads (and I say that because they are all geninely male) and they forever take the mickey equally out of themselves and each other, they so often have me giggling or blushing! I particularly like a pun or a limerick something with a bit of cleverness to it. Panto Dame songs, also a huge fan, especially those when your head fills in the last word of a rhyme (no idea what they are called but they always have me in stitches)!
What’s your favourite style of comedy?
