The Silly Season - Liz Kessler

OK, so some of my recent posts have been a bit on the deep and meaningful side, often talking about dealing with tricky times. So I thought that I'd redress the balance this month with some light relief - especially as it's summer and the sun is shining (or at least it was when I wrote this).

Firstly though, a warning for any ABBA police out there. I confess, this post has very little (OK, nothing) to do with writing. It's basically about having a smile and a giggle and I would have a hard job pretending it was anything more or less than that. So I won't even try.

So, get yourself a cuppa, take half an hour out, and enjoy some of my favourite funny videos that I've seen online over the last year or so...

This is probably my favourite ever video. Remember the incredibly dodgy, odd music videos they used to produce in the 80s? Well, here's one of the best - only with new lyrics to match what is actually going on in the video.

While we're on music videos, here's another one. I've gotta say, I like this version better than the original. (And if you enjoy this one, there are many more 'goat versions' out there. Look up 'Titanium', 'Baby' and 'I Will Always Love You' goat versions on YouTube.)

One last music video. I only just saw this a few days ago, and it's gone straight into my top ten list of funny vids.

OK, so this one is for all those who fear the dentist. Or who have every had anaesthetic and felt a bit odd afterwards. Bet you never felt quite this odd!

This one is pure genius. And a wonderful response to homophobia and bigoted people who don't believe in equal rights.

I couldn't compile a list like this without a few animal videos. So here are three of my favourites...

And finally, this one isn't a comedy video, but there's something about it that I find so infectious and happy-making, so I thought I'd include it.

Stop Press! One final video has just sneaked onto the list. Slight warning - this one contains adult content and a bit of nudity. But it's VERY funny!

Hope you enjoyed some of these as much as I did. Now, get back to work!

This post really got me laughing, Liz. Is Amanda Palmer is Neil Gaiman's wife? You should watch her TED speech, The Art of Asking. Not so funny, but definitely inspiring!

Love it - seen a couple of these before but well worth a second watch.
