Laughter Not The Best Medicine

A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine has proven once and for all that laughter is not the best medicine. The study, which drew criticism from the Clown Institute is the first of its’ kind and it comes on the heals of a controversial malpractice suit in Kentucky. The case involved a Cancer Patient who was prescribed a healthy dose of Pauly Shore by Doctor Niles Heckles, a firm believer in the humerical medicines.

Heckles was caught prescribing near lethal doses of Pauly Shore to cancer patients, some of which were terminal and others that merely wished they were. Heckles defended himself by saying, “If Pauly Shore can’t cure cancer, than who can?”

The study revealed that not only was laughter not the best medicine, but it wasn’t even in the top 10. When questioned about the study, an FDA spokesman admitted that laughter didn’t even register as a drug, but they can’t dispute the fact that a little Sanford & Son can lift the spirits.


Dr. Spencer Tate, head of the study, admitted that it’s too early to draw conclusions from the study. “The verdict is still out. While Pauly Shore prescriptions can be lethal, there is nothing to say that moderate levels of Lavern & Shirley couldn’t cure what ails ya.” The study will be printed in the November issue of The New England Journal of Medicine.
