Happy laughing!

"Haa haa haaa!" came out the sound of laughter from a group of youngsters-at-heart at a park in bangalore near my brother's home in Bangalore. My father made his presence felt with his joke on his day at the laughter club, thanks to Reader's Digest. This is what he had to say.

A lousy hunter was walking home with drooping shoulders after yet another day's failure when he spotted another hunter struggling to drag a big grizzly bear that he just shot.

"How could you do it?" asked he.
"Its simple! Go in front of the cave, aim your rifle at its entrance and whistle. When the bear comes out, shoot!", said the successful hunter.

After a few days, the latter went to a hospital to treat a bruise he sustained after a minor accident. He found the lousy hunter on the beds heavily bandaged.

"What happened?", asked he.

"I.... tried to ...... execute your advice ..... to kill a bear!", he managed with great difficulty!

Puzzled, the successful hunter verified, "Did you stand in front of the cave?"
"Did you take aim?"
"Did you whistle?"
"What did you see?"
"Trans-siberian express train!"

Well folks, it is not without a reason that I chose this joke that was narrated at a laughter club. Today, being the first Sunday of May, is World Laughter Day.This was celebrated for the first time in a Laughter Yoga club in Mumbai.

More reason to laugh! So, is an extra booster from Dilbert (for an enlarged version) :)
