The Fake Laugh

I'll be sitting at a restaurant, to see a movie or most anywhere (where there are women) and hear the most annoying, strange laughs, "Hee Hee Hee," "Haw Haw Haw," "Hoo Hoo Hoo - I Know! Hoo Hoo Hoo," "(Insert more fake laughs here)." Sometimes I hear those kinds of laughs from my family or friends, and I don't ever recall them ever laughing like that. Maybe the mall, restaurant, other outdoor place release Nitric Oxide in the air, or maybe it's the booze, or - I don't know what else.

I say we put people to a tickle test. When they least expect it, tickle them to see if they do an "outside, in front of their 'friends' laugh," during the tickle. If they do, cool. If not, fine them $20 bucks and make them promise to never do it again on a youtube video.

Guys do it, too. I've watched a Super Bowl game or two, but the Budweiser frogs, E Trade babies, Betty White in the Snickers commercial or whatever are funny, but not THAT funny.

I totally agree and can't stand the loud fake laugh. But maybe that's because I laugh silently. I mean...when I'm really laughing...nothing..not a sound!
