Mike Meyer | 30 comments If laughter is healthy, then just think what reading THE FAMOUS UNION will do for you. Here's what a top Amazon reviewer has to say about the book: "It's light and humorous with a bit of a wink and a lot of wry puckish humor. It helps that the book is organized, once all of the eccentric characters have been introduced, into very brief chapters - each one moving one of the character pieces just a little bit on the board. The effect is like watching a slow motion train wreck, as you observe the characters inching towards collision and catastrophe." - Pop Bop, Top 500 Amazon Reviewer

Medical humor - what a concept! and they don't even have a breathalyzer test for it.

"LAUGHTER, THE BEST MEDECINE" was the title for decades of Reader's Digest cartoon panels (now also an online joke page).

I believe humor and laughter could extend life to some degree but, if anything else, after it's all said and done, it's a good way to go.
