Ha Ha and Heehee

On this date in 1754, the first cartoon was printed in a newspaper in the USA. Of course, in 1754 there was no USA, so I assume it was printed in a newspaper in the Colonies.

We often hear that laughter is the best medicine, so take your medicine. Read a daily joke or check out these cartoons.

It's always more meaningful when you can relate to the humor. My favorite upright wrote some cartoons specifically about the disabled. Here's a favorite --

Jim Cameron was an artist when he was diagnosed with MS, experience vision difficulties and numbness in his drawing hand. Now, Cameron is an artist. His page on the British MS Society site offers a download of his comic strip documenting his MS.

We need laughter, and one newspaper in the New World started a trend in this budding country that made it easier to find humor in our daily lives. Read a comic today, or write one that tells your story.
