"When people follow The Law of the Garbage Truck, they make room for happiness and they increase civility in the world. They also make room for laughter. Laughter makes people happier and healthier. We know it from the research. We also know it feels great. There are few things as gratifying as a good belly laugh. Global Belly Laugh Day is a good reminder for us all to make time to laugh with our children, parents, friends, coworkers, and neighbors."

Milton Berle once said "Laughter is the best vacation." "So if you're at work, it's like you're being paid to sit there and giggle. If that's not worth celebrating, I don't know what is!"
