Things That Make Me Laugh

If you know me, or read my blog, you know I tend to see the humorous side of life. In fact, to really get acquainted, don’t ask what makes me tick… ask what makes me laugh. Here’s a sample…..

This ice cream scoop, which I bought because I saw it in a store and it made me laugh, and who can’t use a second ice cream scoop? With (insincere) apologies to the amazing Blue Man Group, I call it “The Blue Man Scoop.”


Smart Cars. Honestly, doesn’t it look like its own glove compartment? They’ve been skittering around on the roads for years, but still… whenever I see one, I snort with laughter.
Every. Single. Time.


Outrageous flavors of Oreos. Really? What’s wrong with good ol’ chocolate?


Arguing with the Word Sheriff in the “Words With Friends” app. Here, you see the game discriminates against both Texans and Lord of the Rings nerds. The indignity!



Walking sticks, the weirdest little predators in the garden.


This “Republic of Anaerobia” cycling jersey. Like the Blue Man Scoop, I bought it solely because it makes me laugh. As near as I can tell, the Latin words mean “I came, I saw, I threw up.” Note the subtle use of red blood cells in the background.

Your turn: What makes you laugh? Please share in the comments below… I’d love to add to my collection!

Next time: People (and other characters) that make me laugh.

About Jan C. Johnson

Welcome! If you like food, reading, laughing over life's little disasters, and maybe thinking about the bigger things of life, you have come to the right place. Besides blogging, I write humorous fiction, though real life tends to leave fictional humor in the shade. But I'm not a total goofball. No, really. I'm also working on a biography project. I live in North Texas with my husband, Brent. We enjoy bicycling, Mexican food, and traveling to visit our kids and grandkids.
