Like Pepperidge Farm, I remember co-pays -- that's when you used to be able to go to the doctor and just pay a portion of the visit, not the whole thing, right?

As this article demonstrates, laughter makes the worst still photos.

If prayer were legal it would be against the law.

It does, but you pay for it through staellite tv, or your ISP's monthly bills.

If you want free laughter, you have to tune in to fm radio, or buy a silly pet.

Dad always said that laughter is the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died from tuberculosis.

What mankind really needs is a viagra-like drug that makes you noticeably funnier. Not like mushrooms or acid, which make you laugh more. I want a pill that makes me funnier for the next four hours.

Then after they come out with the funny pill, they should combine that with viagra. I would never leave the bedroom.

If laughter were the best medicine then I wouldn't keep getting kicked out of the hospital for laughing at the patients.

Yeah, until insurers decided to start implementing an unrealistically high 'deductible' before the co-pay would apply.

It's why I point and laugh at everyone when I'm in public, I'm basically a doctor.

Came to this thread looking for you. Leaving disappointed that Ken Jeong ripped off that joke for his Netflix special.

And people would keep importing comedians from Canada.
