Friday Fun

05/28/2004

Fridays are waiting for the weekend to start days. This is our space to create a virtual Happy Hour...from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A time to be sophisticated-silly. Or perhaps just plain silly.

What do you think is funny? Check out Laugh Lab - a real scientific experiment to discover the world's funniest joke. The international study of humour involved over 350,000 people from 70 countries. While you're there take the Smile Study - a unique experiment to discover whether people can spot the difference between a genuine and fake smile. Here's the top American joke from the study. Do you think it's funny? What's your favorite joke?

A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says: “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man.” The man then replies: “Yeah, well we were married 35 years.”

Some people say you make your own luck. Prof. Richard Wiseman (University of Hertfordshire), who conducted the Laugh Lab research, says that learning to be lucky is central to business success. Are you lucky in love, work or play? Take a test or two at the Luck Project.
