MINNEAPOLIS --- Laughter is indeed good for what ails you. Research shows that humor helps with the healing process.
Humor comes in many forms. A sense of humor can be described as amusing, bawdy, droll, and risqué. The organizers of National Humor Month have a listing of the many different senses of humor.
It's no joke that Humor Month coincides with the same month that starts with April Fool's Day. Wikipedia has a list of some of the outstanding April Fool's Pranks pulled off over the years. Among those included, Taco Bell's "announcement" that it had purchased the Liberty Bell and renamed it the 'Taco Liberty Bell'.
Here are some other ways to tickle your funny bone, all in the name of good health.
