Laughter is a Serious Matter
Many of you will have heard the old adage, ‘laughter is the best medicine,’ and take it with a pinch of salt, but in fact, although we are a humour site, we follow this in earnest. Laughing elevates you though may be not to the ceiling grabbing heights of Mary Poppins. But it does lower blood pressure, it releases stress and tension. It releases endorphins and the body’s own natural pain killers.
Laughter can literally wash your troubles away. At egg.st we think of ourselves as sadness doctors, providing the world with the best medicine, the greatest gift, laughter. Of course some smarty pants will probably bring up the phrase, ‘die laughing,’ but wouldn’t that surely be the best way to go?
There are literally hundreds of words and terms for laughing. So many different ways to do it, so many strange phrases to mean to laugh; chuckle, chortle, cackle, giggle, guffaw, snigger, and the list goes on. Then you have people rolling on the floor, creasing up, busting a gut, cracking up, splitting their sides, dissolving into laughter.
Funny, so many phrases for something so pleasurable that involve breaking a part. But a true laugh, a real laugh feels like that. The deep belly shake, tears and breathlessness that accompany a really good laugh and when it spreads. Well, they do say laughing is contagious!
But enough about that; come and join us in our quest to make the world a funnier place. The delights we have in store might have you splitting a rib or two on your journey into jollification!
