Sometimes we just need to have some weird and wacky fun. That useless nonsense that gives us a boost of happiness and some giggles too. So where do you turn for hilarity and unabashed silliness? Here are a few of my favorite places:
Hoops and Yoyo – this website is totally outstanding. The characters are cute, funny and colorful – a winning combination. With tiny, squeaky little voices and a wacky diversity of subjects, they’ll have you rolling on the floor laughing in no time. They have great printable calendars, screensavers, and free e-cards too.
Dr. Seuss – who can resist, the master of rhyme, the super-great writer, who gets better with time? Fun and carefree, with no agenda but fun, for all that and more, Dr. Seuss is the one! Don’t miss Theodore’s birthday on March 2nd.
Maxine - whether young or old, no can resist this cranky crabby lady. Abrupt and to the point, she’ll tickle your funny bone as she points out the good and bad news of growing old and lessons of life.
Roald Dahl. A scrumdiddlyumptious writer with the best whizzcracking stories you’ve ever heard! With great books like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and the BFG (Big Friendly Giant), Dahl has an imagination and a vocabulary like no one else. Don’t miss The Twits, George’s Marvelous Medicine, and the short, but great tale – The Enormous Crocodile.
The Office – for any cubicle dweller in a big corporation, this hit TV show presses your buttons in just the right way. Hilarious and over-the-top. Character parodies that can feel a little too realistic. :0)
Animals. Visit The Daily Puppy and Cute Overload to get your fill of those cuddly, fuzzy bundles of cuteness. Better yet, visit a shelter and play with a lonely pet, or play a game of catch with your own.
Spongebob Squarepants. This MUST be one of the best cartoons ever invented. Something about that squeaky-shoed, manically-giggling yellow square of a sponge is totally captivating. Along with the stingy Mr. Crabs, the grouchy and talent-less Squidward, the confused pink starfish Patrick and of course our favorite demented dictator-in-training Plankton, this cast will have you borrowing nieces, nephews and grandkids just for an excuse to watch.
Other favorites include:
Princess Bride movie
All things Disney
Weird Al songs
3rd Rock from the Sun tv show (reruns)
Calvin & Hobbes cartoons
