1. The Potential Power of Choosing Your Own Laughs

When patients recovering from surgery in a Florida hospital
were allowed to choose their own comedies to watch, they
required less painkillers than patients who were shown no
movies OR patients that had NO choice over the comedies they
watched. Of course, here at the old Hump Day we’ve talked
often about how humor helps manage stress at work. The Florida
study, though, suggests that the more control we have over the
type of humor we choose, and the better we match the type of
humor to our own personal tastes, the more effective it just
might be at managing the pain you feel during your next annual
general meeting or office reorganization.
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Get creative and even wacky when it comes to workplace rewards
and perks. A Wells Fargo office in California features 101
workplace awards and rewards, including the following items:
hot air balloon rides, makeovers, music lessons for your child,
pet grooming for a year, a year’s supply of pantyhose, your
house cleaned for six months and a star named after you! ================================================================
3. Quote of the Week

“Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.” Peter Ustinov
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky, World

Here are a few random wacky thoughts of the day for you. . .
– Donald Duck cartoons are banned in Finland because he doesn’t
wear pants.
– More people are killed each year around the world by donkeys
than in airplane accidents.
– Dueling in Paraguay is legal. . .as long as both duelers are
registered blood donors!
