If I may, I would like to begin today’s column with a question. What is the definition of a conceited dolt? Well, a conceited dolt is a man whose wife thinks he’s funny!

Wish I had one of those. Just kidding, Janis always laughs at my jokes, especially the good ones. A while back we had a speaker come to our Lions Club who was really good, and he was funny. So much so that I had a special request from one of our members, Jerry Boyer, who asked me to do a column on laughter. He said, “people need to laugh,” and that is true, and it’s also scriptural. It says in Proverbs 17:22, “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.” There is one thing for sure, we can’t be mad at someone when we are laughing.
