Fabulously Funny People

posted May 14, 2018, 10:16 AM by Michael Varma

Fabulously funny people gathered in the AmerisourceBergen Orange, CA, office on Thursday, October 12, to share their humor in a Joke Telling Contest sponsored by the G.A.M.E. Committee and the BergenMeisters Toastmasters club

More than a dozen participants entertained 30 guests and judges. Everyone laughed, cheered, and clapped as they heard a variety of humor ranging from top-notch knee slappers to moaner-groaner puns and oneliners.

Why do you need to tell a joke?

  • Telling jokes in the workplace can break the initial tensions, enhance creativity and problem solving which are great bonus benefits for any employer.
  • Jokes often cause laughs which decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies which improves your resistance to disease.
  • Laughter also triggers the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals, which promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.

Health Benefits of Laughter
  1. Helps treat insomnia
  2. Improves immunity
