    So, we had a meeting at work, one hour ago. A workmate brought a special type of cookies: lengüitas de gato[/i] (tiny cat tongues).
    I have a cat, and my troll imagination converted the cookies in ACTUAL cat tongues.
    I started to laugh like possessed. That was sooooooo awkward. I went to the bathroom and kept laughing there. I couldn't help it! I'm still laughing :D

    'Oh, those Mac users... :apple: they laugh at ridiculous stuff.'

    Have you had laughter attacks like mine?

    I'm just kidding. It's an irony ;)
    It's about the Mac users are *insert word here* stereotype. I brought my Mac to my workplace, so my workmates know I have a Mac.

    "Oh, irony! No, we don't get that here.

    We haven't had any irony here since about, uh, '83, when I was the only practitioner of it. And I stopped because I was tired of being stared at."

    Yay, I recovered. BTW, I still laugh when I see Christian, the guy who brought the cookies. My sweet imagination, oh sweet imagination and its laughter triggers.

    For those of you wondering what are the lengüitas de gato...

    Interesting.

    I never thought that Lady Fingers were actually made out of women's fingers, and I doubt that Girl Scout Cookies contain more than the tiniest trace amounts of actual girl scout.

    Sadly, I did recently discover that (English) steak and kidney pudding is actually pretty accurately named, while conversely, toad in the hole is blessedly amphibian-free.

    Its a real tragedy when I have to consult Wikipedia before sitting down to eat.

    I remember that, who she would not laugh at all until the funeral - that was a great episode.

    OP, we've all had those situations where we start giggling, though I don't know if its because I'm a mac user. I don't think my computer selection has anything to do with my humor.

    It's embarrassing, I'll agree. But laughter is such great medicine!

    I was headed home one Friday evening on a packed commuter flight. Center seat. It had been a stressful week. Usually I chill out and listen to music, but that day I decided to listen to a Billy Connolly CD (Scottish comedian, disarmingly funny). Big mistake.

    I sat there, silently convulsing in laughter and shaking the entire row of seats while my seat-mates furtively glanced sideways to check I wasn't having a medical emergency. There were tears too. Mine. It was all supremely embarrassing.

    I had to press Stop after 10 mins. Unfortunately, replaying the punch lines in my head kept setting me off again. All the way home. I left my earbuds in so my neighbors wouldn't think I was completely bonkers. :)

    Ever since, I've avoided listening to Billy Connolly in public.

    Yeah, they don’t have to report anything under 1%.

    There’s a girl when haven’t seen in my little girl’s troop since the beginning of the year ... assuming she’s being prepped for next years Thin Mints.

    That was a great bit.

    Careful, we are all showing our age now. Yeah, MTM show was one of the funniest on TV at the time. Now that I have seen that clip I will be chuckling all day.

    Are you 5? How did you find those cookies remotely funny? :confused:

    Go back to your cube and do some work.

    No need to put them down because they found something funny.

    I agree.

    Years ago, (well, alright, a few decades ago), as an undergrad, sitting in the university cafeteria, I found myself helpless with laughter while reading the Doonesbury strip (it was the time Ronald Reagan was president and that actual piece concerned a visit the then President had made to Germany).

    I laughed so hard a few other coffee drinkers solicitously approached me to ask was I was fine, and whether I needed assistance...

    It takes a LOT to make me laugh at all.

    That said, if you're happy and healthy, then good for you.

    Have a few laughs for me...

    Yep, just insert the video ID inside the youtube tags, no need to cut-n-paste the entire address. The ID is always the case-sensitive and alphanumeric blurb after the "v=" in the YouTube address/link.
