Do you often laugh? What's the frequency like?I mean is it the moderate kind of laughter hehe. or when you experience that teary eyed laughter til your tummy hurts and it went on for a few minutes....(you know what I mean).
Of course it depends on the joke.
When we talk about jokes, its funny that NOT ALL our jokes, people could understand. I remember staring to a class who laughed like crazy when I asked a student to give his view and he kept quiet. Then, his friend quickly said " Teacher..he is shy-shy cat.."
I was actually trying to comprehend what was so funny but it was a bit too late because the rest of the class did not PAUSE and THINK.
Yes, limitation in background knowledge and language barrier can also be among other factors. Not understanding the Malay translation that was 'intelligently' created by these translators can make you go like "what?"
But for all the errors (if we are not going to use them in academic setting) I think it's fine to just have a good laugh. I think it is high time my blog gets a pinch of laughter from you guys :-)
And so, this short posting of mine is an avenue for ALL OF YOU- to share any of the jokes that I might have missed hahahaha.
I know for sure...... that if I can laugh when Im with my children, students and close friends, it will really make my day..... cause I believe that laughter - can sometimes be the best medicine.
