Laughter is the Best Medicine

A dear friend of ours is feeling less than great these days which prompted this scientific study on the medicinal properties of laughter. Follow The Fat Guy's senior medical correspondent, Dr. Furious George P.H.D.(Profoundly.Hates.Diets.), extensively researched what it is exactly that makes a person feel better after a fit of laughter. Test subjects were connected to the revolutionary Brain-O-Matic 3000 imaging device while engaged in a round of nonsensical banter with Dr. Furious George. The results were captured on the video below.

As the video clearly shows, during laughter the brain produces tiny particles Dr. Furious George has called 'Goodegens'. These particles travel throughout the body making the laughing person feel good. Dr. Furious George also noticed while inducing the 'Goodegens' in test subjects, his own level of 'Goodegens' increased and he too felt good. Research is presently underway to determine how 'Goodegens' are transmitted between people. Results will be published as soon as they are known. Attempts will also be made to isolate 'Goodegens' for over the counter use by people who suffer from the dreaded U.F.S.(Unfunny Friend Syndrome).

In conclusion, if you know someone who is under the weather and could use some cheering up, do them and yourself a favor and share some 'Goodegens'. You'll both be glad you did.

Til next time..
