Humor for Lexophiles(Lovers of Words)

The following were sent to me this morning by a friend.I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.Laughter is good for us on all levels.Science and medicine have proven this.The ancient writers of the Bible also knew this for Proverbs 17:22 says"A merry heart does good like medicine,but a broken spirit dries the bones."So drink fully of this literary elixir and improve your health.And above all else have a blessed day in Him!
Much Love~Sharon
