Love May Make the World Go ‘Round, But Laughter Keeps Us from Getting Dizzy Day
Today is Love May Make the World Go ‘Round, But Laughter Keeps Us from Getting Dizzy Day, the first day of a weeklong celebration lasting through Valentine’s Day. It is the brainchild of Joel Goodman, who in 1977 founded The Humor Project, the first organization in the world to focus full-time on the positive power of humor.
Goodman dedicated the week to Victor Borge, who said, “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” For those unfamiliar with the pianist/comedian, we’ve collected a few performances certain to make you smile.
Watch his short “piano duel,” then see him sing with Dean Martin to demonstrate his system of “phonetic punctuation.” Cap off your viewing session with his “one-man opera.”
For more Victor Borge, check out the many playlists on YouTube. For information about how to increase your Humor Quotient at work and home, visit humorproject.com. As Joel Goodman says, “Seven days without laughter makes one weak.”
Try to laugh every day this week. Watch a comedy, read a humorous book and make time to talk with the people who tickle your funny bone. It could become a habit.
Have a happy Love May Make the World Go ‘Round, But Laughter Keeps Us from Getting Dizzy Day and Week, everybody!
