Apparently, depending on where you find these bizarre occasions listed, today is both International Moment of Laughter Day and International Stress Awareness Day. So, tell us a joke, include a link to something funny, and make us laugh.
Here’s Tommy Cooper with one of his most celebrated routines. What do you think? Was he one of the funniest of funny men? David certainly thinks so.
Your recommended stress-busting tips and techniques, if they’re as good as some of your others, would also make interesting reading; I’m sure I’m not the only one who would eagerly welcome your thoughts on everything from herbal teas and house plants, to racquet sports and recipes involving eggs.
If you’re having a particularly bad day today, or just need an excuse to take a break from whatever is aggravating you so that you can do something completely different for a moment or two, give this mildly-addictive balloon-popping game a try… and be sure to share your high scores with the rest of us.
