Laughter is one of the great gifts God granted to humankind.  Laughter is good for the soul.  Victor Hugo said, "Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face."  

Victor Hugo never had to read the news.

In Australia, Channel Ten's Natasha Exelby got a laughing fit at the worst possible time – right as she was reading stories about riots in Brazil, a building collapse in India, and a child falling from a building in China.  Exelby had to come back later and apologize for her "case of the giggles."  It would have been better if she still had the laughing fit during the apology.
