We could keep you in stiches for days, but we will stop for now. We do leave you with an idea, however. It’s always important to take some time out of your day to recognize the important job humor plays in keeping stress at bay, building relationships, and bringing levity to a world that badly needs it right now. Spread the humor by leaving a secret written joke on a neighbor’s stoop, a colleague's desk, or mail it to your best friend. You can always leave the joke in a funny mug, or a pilot mug if the person is into aviation. Either way, it is a simple gesture that will be sure to get a grin.
