A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The driver says, ‘ugh, that’s the ugliest baby I’ve ever seen’. The woman walks to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her, ‘the driver just insulted me’. The man says, ‘you go up there and tell him off. Go on, I’ll hold your monkey for you’.
Two campers are walking through the woods when a huge brown bear suddenly appears in the clearing about 50 feet in front of them. The bear sees the campers and begins to head towards them. The first guy drops his backpack, digs out a pair of sneakers, and frantically begins to put them on. The second guy says, ‘what are you doing? Sneakers won’t help you outrun that bear’. ‘I don’t need to outrun the bear,’ the first guy says. ‘I just need to outrun you.’

To bring a smile or laugh to someone’s face is the best thing you can do. These days social media has taken that responsibility. There are many jokes and trolls that make you laugh out loud. A recent one caught my attention is below. Mediocre but very relevant. A cute sentence written by a small boy in his maths book. ‘Dear Maths! Please grow up and start solving your problems yourself... I have my own problems!’ Sunanda Mohan
Employer: How long did you work during your last job? Candidate: 30 years Employer: What’s your age? Candidate: 20 years Employer: How? Candidate: I did overtime.

I know a lot of jokes. Here’s the funniest I’ve heard: A police officer calls into the station. ‘I have an interesting case here,’ he says. ‘A woman shot her husband for stepping on the floor she just mopped.’ ‘Have you arrested her?’ asks the sergeant. ‘No, not yet. The floor’s still wet.’ Zobia Fathima
This is my favourite joke. A woman texts this to her husband on a cold winter morning: Windows is not opening, totally frozen. Husband replies: Pour some hot water on it and tap gently on the edges. If that does not work, take a hammer and hit it gently on it. Wife replies: The laptop’s really broken now! Kashvi Bindal
I am a huge fan of jokes but riddles are harder and being up for a challenge is always exciting! How do you make the word ‘one’ disappear? Add a ‘g’ and it’s gone! Reeti Ramchandani
I am a regular reader of Friday though this is my first write-up.
Laughter is said to be the best medicine for any kind of ailment. It is an era where stand-up comedy is yet another profession that one may choose for a living. In today’s busy-bee world, I feel it is very important to laugh your heart out not necessarily watching a comedy show or a movie but simple things that happen around you – and at yourself, too.
My fond memories and also my favourite form of comedy is to watch someone mimic another. I have a strong memory of college days when we used to mimic our professors and laugh our hearts out. We were so good in observing during the lectures and imitating the same later. We were the naïve Russell Peters of our time.
Laughter is said to be true or pure when it travels from your lips and reaches your ears. I have had many such true moments in my life.
It is said that old habits die hard. So true that even today I find it difficult to control my laughter when someone goes head over heels while walking – including myself. Amita Charati
