Two blondes driving from Minneapolis to Fargo saw a road sign that said, "Clean restrooms ahead."

Those two blondes cleaned 19 restrooms before they made it to Fargo.

Go ahead. You may as well laugh.

Because it's good for you!

We know that God has a sense of humor, because he made us, and we are created in his image.

The Scriptures are replete with calls for laughter. Job, for example, who had as much reason to be sorrowful as anyone, was told by his friend Bildad, "He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy."

Of course, we don't know what occurred after that exchange. Maybe Job popped him in the nose after Bildad said that. That would be funny, wouldn't it?

Ecclesiastes says there's a time for everything done under the sun. A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to dance and a time to mourn.

There's been plenty to mourn about this past year, hasn't there? If you watch the news, or even scroll your Facebook feed, it's enough to make anyone feel hopeless. That's why you need to literally force yourself to laugh.

So quit watching the news, put a hard limit on time you spend on social media. Use that newfound time to watch cat videos on YouTube, or watch people trip at the mall. (Bonus points if you can make them trip.)

Of course, you don't want to be seen as the village idiot. You need proper balance in everything. But we put together this episode to remind you that in this world in which we live, you need to make an effort to laugh. Even when... No, especially when laughing is the last thing you feel like doing.
