A Proclamation From The Governor: LOL Day

Office of the Governor of Iowa
Terry Branstad


With unprecedented enthusiasm, Iowans have embraced our challenge to become the healthiest state in the nation by 2016. Since it is said that "laughter is the best medicine," we have declared Monday, April 2, as LOL Day in Iowa.

Laughing is one of the best ways to de-stress, and keeping stress to a minimum is an important part of the well-being puzzle. Even if your diet is chock full of grains, fruits and veggies and you exercise every day, if the emotional health piece of the jigsaw is missing, your overall health could be suffering.  You can read more about our state's "rib-tickling" initiative for wellness at the official website

In order to aid in this effort, on this day, April 2, Iowa State Troopers will be trading in their usual serious "Smokey the Bear" hats for hilarious multi-colored Afro wigs and bulbous red noses.  Roving teams of these Troopers will be patrolling the streets of Iowa.  Anyone who is caught NOT laughing, chortling, chuckling, giggling, guffawing, snickering, tittering, or in some way exerting their lungs in a mirthful manner will be f*cking shot.

Warmest Regards,

Iowa Governor "Taxin' Terry" Branstad
Lt. Governor Terry's Moustache

I thought the link was a first. Sadly, it's not. But in the spirit of "Listen to a routine or two from one of your favorite comedians" everyone should go to YouTube and listen to some George Carlin comments about government. He was absolutely f'in right!

As an act of civil disobedience I spent LOL day watching "Schindler's List," "The Notebook," "Saving Private Ryan," "Sophie's Choice," "Black Hawk Down" and "City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold." There wasn't a laugh to be heard.

City Slickers II? My God, you really are prepared to suffer for the cause.
