With all the upheaval in the world these days it’s tough to find humor in any of it. But, just as days opposite is night; the opposite of sadness is humor. I’m not saying every news story is sad just 99 percent of them.

To lighten your load, and for those of you who need a good joke for a speech, or office meeting, I have come to your rescue. Here are a few more of my favorite one-liners to put a smile on someone’s face today.
