6 witty people whose sense of humor keeps the earth spinning
Sometimes, it seems like the world is a pretty dark place. If you turn on the news or even log onto the internet, you’ll probably see some messed up stuff. It’s no wonder some of us feel like everything’s terrible.
Just take the average millennial. Their generation came of age with 9/11. Since then, they’ve experienced a housing crisis, student loan debt, a wild political arena, and a failing job market. That’s not even to mention climate change, rising sea levels, and polluted oceans.
So, what do you do when it seems like everything’s bad and getting worse? You do exactly what humans have always done. You keep laughing.
People with a sense of humor are often the ones who keep everyone going. They know how to deal with crises big and small. Even when the situation appears hopeless, they’re ready with a joke.
Humor is one of those things that remind us everything’s going to be okay. They say every cloud has a silver lining. Here are 6 people who are funny enough to remind all of us of that. See? Things aren’t so bad after all, especially if there are people like this around.
1. Won’t someone think of the cookie dough?
You wouldn’t think there are people silly enough to tap on the sneeze guard while ordering ice cream, but there are. Thankfully, the staff at this ice cream shop found a way to take it in stride.
2. We need more of these
Someone put their sense of humor to work by installing a defibrillator right next to the public ATM. It could come in handy for some customers checking bank balances.
3. Who doesn’t love a pun?
No one tells puns because they think they’re clever. They tell puns because they make everyone groan and roll their eyes. But admit it — you chuckled.
4. Roll with the punches
When life deals you a blow, the best way to deal with it is to turn it into something good. Just take this driver, for example. He had a creative way of dealing with a cracked windshield.
5. It’s funny because it’s true
Every artist who sees this soap will laugh and then cry because it’s so true. People get into the professional art scene because they love it. It’s certainly not for money.
6. Lazy but creative
I’m torn between admiration and annoyance at this costume. But ultimately, it’s pretty clever and it’ll make all the “Game of Thrones” fans crack a smile.
