Another Day to Laugh and Love

My dear Humoristian hooligans,

You have a reason to live today. A purpose. You woke up this morning with another day to be alive and to love, and to create healing laughter for those around you. Today may you share the laughter that puts things in perspective. May you learn what you need to learn from your mistakes ( ahem… I mean… on the off-off-chance you should make any),  and may they bring you a good laugh afterwards. May you be open to the bountiful, over-flowing love and joy that surrounds you.

You deserve to be here.

-Karen Molenaar Terrell, The Great Goof

“Laugh when you can, and especially at yourself…”

My dear Humoristian hooligans –

As another day begins in the western hemisphere of Planet Earth, may you find yourself eager to greet the new day – ready to face every challenge, to laugh in the face of danger (and non-danger, too – just, basically, laugh whenever the opportunity presents itself and it’s not inappropriate – well, I guess even sometimes when it IS inappropriate… never mind… just laugh when you can, and especially at yourself), and may you feel hope in your heart at what the future holds. You are alive, my hooligan friends. You are loved. Spread the joy. Spread the hope. You deserve all the good you experience today.

-Karen Wingoof

Arise go forth and conquer

 

Unleash the Kazoos!

Dear Humoristian hooligans:

The world is in desperate need of a good laugh. As enlistees in the Humoristian militia I exhort you to utilize the full arsenal of guffaws at your disposal. Yes, my friends, it is time to bring out the Groucho glasses, the Who’s-On-First shtick, Monty Python’s swallows and the machine that goes ping. It is time to (pause for dramatic effect) unleash the kazoos! Your mission? To keep a wave of laughter circling the globe 24-7. May the farce be with you.
