Governor Chris Christie Kicks Letterman’s Tush: Eat This!!!

The New Jersey governor, Chris Christie, poked fun of his “fat” self on David Letterman.

Whether you think Govenor Christie’s weight is a potential hazard to his running for the presidency or not, I think we can all agree that there’s nothing more delicious than a side-splitting, hearty belly-laugh.

Humor and laughter can help to . . .

  • activate the will to live,
  • lower stress,
  • elevate mood,
  • improve brain functioning,
  • reduce risk of heart disease,
  • reduce problems associated with high blood pressure, strokes, arthritis and ulcers,
  • increase our capacity to fight disease,
  • dissolve anger,
  • unite families in troubled times,
  • connects you to others,
  • make you feel good,
  • foster instant relations,
  • burn calories, and
  • exercise muscles.

That’s right – laughter is not only the best medicine, it gives your diaphragm, abdominal, respiratory, facial, leg, and back muscles – a fabulous workout and it is estimated that a good hearty laugh burns more calories than several minutes on a rowing machine or exercise bike; and it causes a domino effect of joyous proportions.


Once one sugar-cube of joy is set into motion, a number of positive physical effects take place.  And without humor, your thought processes are likely to get crazy glued to some narrowly focused corner of your brain, leading to increased distress and weight gain.

Laughing at ourselves helps to shed light on our dietary transgressions, proving them not to be the derailing events that we think they are.  Humor shifts the ways in which we think and provides and opportunity for a lighter perspective.  (Remember, we want to ‘lighten up’ any way we can.”)
