Laughter. Thought about it yesterday when I met my Wednesday lunch bunch. For you Amarillo College people, anytime you get David Hernandez and Dr. Biggers at the same table, there will be laughter.

Once wrote a newspaper column about it. Researchers say laughter is healthy. It increases the body’s endorphins and decreases unnecessary adrenaline. But that’s not why we do it.

Truth is we love to laugh, which is the topic of my favorite song from “Mary Poppins.”

So, should you want to try it yourself today, following are some of the things that make me laugh. Enjoy.

Funny movies, including “Mad, Mad, Mad World,” the Pink Panther series with Peter Sellers and any movie that has both Tim Conway and Don Knotts.

Old cartoons. I’m partial to the Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote.

Stand up comic routines like Bill Cosby on child rearing or, my all-time favorite, Who’s on First with Abbott and Costello.

And, if you’re wondering if laughter is contagious, try this. 

Oh, and here’s my newspaper column on the subject.
