National Humor Month – Laugh Til The Cows Come Home

By Mary Nicholson

When is the last time you had a good laugh?  I hope it was earlier today!  Did you know that April is National Humor Month?  I suppose April Fool’s Day has something to do with the choice of month.   And with Tax Day in the middle of it, there’s probably a greater need for some levity.  There is some truth to the old adage “Laughter is the best medicine”.  Reader’s Digest includes a number of pages to humor in every issue!

A good laugh can have many positive effects, both physical and mental.  This can be serious business to some. Check out what the experts say.

In case you feel the need to pass on some good humor, here are a few riddles to get you started:

What do you call the spots on a black and white cow?  Hol-stains!

Where do cows go for entertainments?  To the moooovies!

What do cows wear when they go to Hawaii?  Moo-moos

What does the mean chicken lay?  Deviled eggs!

How does a chicken tell time?  One o’cluck, two o’cluck, three o’cluck, etc.

What do you call a male bovine that you can’t see?  Invisi-bull

Why do cows wear bells?  Because their horns don’t work!

What do you get from a pampered cow?  Spoiled milk

What is a pig’s favorite bedtime story?  Slooping Beauty

For those of you more interested in jokes,  here’s one to try:

A farmer from Texas goes on vacation in Australia, where he meets a fellow farmer.  They get to talking and the Aussie takes the Texan to his farm and shows off his big wheat field.  The Texan says, “Why, we have wheat fields that are at least twice as big as this!”  They walk around the ranch a little more, and the Aussie shows the Texan his herd of cattle.  The Texan quickly replies, “We have longhorn steer that are at least two times the size of your cows!”.  After a few moments of silence, the Texan see a great number of kangaroos hopping through the field and asks, “And what are those?”  With a look of disbelief, the Aussie asks, “Don’t you have any grasshoppers in Texas?”
