Don't live in a town where there are no village idiots. Lest you become one.

Abra, the comments on this quote are the funniest I've seen so far! :D
Thanks, everyone, for so many laughs.
I had a crypto that elicited a rather sad response from JD_1947 about how he had outlived all his friends and relatives. I commented that I was glad he was living a long life, and I hoped he wasn't too lonely. The very next quote had this in the comment section:
JD_1947 on 2014-11-25 12:53:23
. . I always look forward to tomorrow . .
Almost like reassurance! Isn't that kind of beautiful?
That is beautiful, umom. Thank you so much for posting that.
This reminds me of what happened on my screen soon after I started this Forum thread. I had opened late at night with some vintage silliness from Pootie as the first "classic comment." The next afternoon, I checked in and saw that people over in the chat box liked seeing Pootie's humor in the first entry, which made me happy. Then I clicked on "Play" . . . and one of the first puzzles that came up was some famous saying (I forget which) with a solution page that had just one short comment: it was Pootie, saying "Classic quote!"
Okay, maybe you had to be there, but for me, it was magic. Given her choice of word and the particular moment it popped up on my screen, it felt like Pootie was chiming in just to say hello and give a thumbs-up to the new game. I never even knew her, but I've read that she always welcomed new players to the fold.

Wow, we really could use a "LIKE" button.

Does Dan always speak of Dan in the third person?

For sure. I met her at a rave at Beast's castle.

I was going to say "dishwashing liquid", but bansai took care of that a long time ago.
JenDiaz72 on 2015-06-01 13:26:54
Joy is liquid... just like Jack Daniels.

I'll drink to that.

If hiccoughing persists for four hours after taking Laughter, please seek immediate medical help. Patients who are taking nitrous oxide should not use Laughter. If you are taking nitrous oxide, please consult your physician.
puzzleme on 2013-05-18 01:16:04
Excellent, bansai. I can't wait to get me some of that Laughter.
montyb on 2014-08-06 11:23:42
I thought Laughter was over-the-counter.
JenDiaz72 on 2015-01-02 10:26:12
Lower MG of laughter you can get... but sometimes it doesn't work as well....
montyb on 2015-04-18 14:56:19
I split my sides laughing. Is that a side effect?
