Great Workout for the laughter-muscles, 1 December 1999
Author: Lars-Toralf Storstrand from Haugesund, Norway

If you are in dire need of a laugh - see this movie. Still, it is better to wait until you really, really need a laugh, this is like Phillips Milk of Magnesia, though. The absolute last resort to get you to laugh.
