National Tell a Joke Day

Did you know that August 16 is National Tell a Joke Day? It really is...no joke. Instead of just throwing out a few one-liners on you like, it is not only at the poker table that a flush beats a full house, we're going to tell you why you should actually tell jokes on this fantastic day.

When you hear or tell a joke you typically laugh, right? Okay, maybe not in those instances when the joke is cheesier than a four-cheese pizza. But most of the time we at least chuckle a tiny bit when we hear a joke. So, the reason why you should be telling jokes is because laughing just happens to be really good for you.

Laughing is good for you because...

  • Laughter lowers blood pressure.
  • Laughter relaxes the entire body.
  • Laughter reduces stress hormone levels.
  • Laughter triggers the release of endorphins.
  • Laughter eases anxiety.
  • Laughter improves your mood.
  • Laughter just makes you feel good.

Let loose with your cheesiest jokes and watch the laughs and smiles fill the room. The world is a much better place when you share laughs and good times with others around you.

Your friends at Mr. Rooter have a few puns up our sleeve that we'll let you borrow. If you have a favorite, family-friendly joke, share it with us on our Facebook page. We always love a good chuckle. And remember, laughing is good for you so don't hold back.
