you know, those times when you spend between 15 minutes and several hours giving yourself a belly-ache over something hilarious. what's yours and how often do you get them? i recall i used to have them fairly often, nowadays, not so much. here's a couple from my last year or so.... was on the way home from a work-do on the last bus out of town with another dude who took the same bus to a suburb further out. i got off at my usual stop, then sent a phone message to the dude on the bus telling him that his bus was the one that went to a rather unsavoury neighbourhood rather than his own. i thought that was werth a chuckle. then i walk inside and my phone's ringing. it's the dude from the bus, now no longer on the bus. he got off about 20 stops early because he panicked when he saw my message, and now had to walk several miles home drunk and peeved in the middle of the night. suffice to say many death threats were made, and it's one of the simplest and best practical jokes i've ever played. another more recent event was i was walking home from the pub and i cam across some traffic cones. it's my inebriated habit to bring cones home with me, i have quite a collection. anywho, i had a cone in each hand, and this guy walking along the street said "throw it!". well, i did, and it flew great, perfect trajectory, and landed right in the middle of a lane of a 2-lane road, standing upright. this gave me inspiration, i place the remaining cone in the middle of the OTHER lane, then just moved away from the scene and watched. let's just say a few minutes later there was a line of cars stretching back as far as i could see, just because these people were loathe to disobey the cones. they have such power. i woke up the next day with a hangover and a really sore stomach. well, i won't go into acid-related giggles, but was just wondering if other people feel as though they're missing out on belly-laughs as time goes on.
