A friend once told me how funny it was that I laughed at my own jokes. Honestly, I didn’t think there was anything wrong with it; if I told the joke then I probably thought it was funny. To my dismay she was correct and society has apparently deemed it foolish to laugh at your own jokes. Comedians don’t laugh at their own jokes, or try not to (Seinfeld) because it’s funnier if they appear more serious. I’m not a comedian and therefore don't feel the rule of ‘not laughing at my own jokes’ applies. I love to laugh and have a hard time holding it in, in fact I once laughed so hard that all the blood vessels in one eye burst. Life is full of tough moments that weigh us down and laughter reminds us that we will get through those difficult times. So, do you think it is okay to laugh at your own jokes?
