Now I know everyone has seen Friday, the movie that has one of my favorite comedians John Witherspoon. His wit and crude humor had my family and me laughing for years, making tough times good and good times better, which is a divine act. For me, laughter is the medicine for depression and many other health issues. Witherspoon knows better than anybody the power of laughing at whatever life throws at you, including an Internet death.
“What the Hell y’all talking bout on Here?!??” Witherspoon first tweeted after a 2012 rumor of him dying started trending. “I ain’t “DEAD” I’m in Ft Lauderdale at the Hard Rock Cafe Gettin dat Paper.”
Ha! The veteran comedian and actor is still making folks laugh, which is all the better for us. Laughter is a natural human emotion that brings people together, invokes happiness and brings stability and balance to your soul, mind, and even body.
A good, hearty laugh relieves the physical tension and stress you may have acquired from work or a rude individual through the release of endorphins, which is the body’s feel good chemical. This leaves your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes, resulting in a better sense of well-being.
