Laugh #12 - the high society

Inspiration:

This laugh is inspired by those who enjoy the finer things.  They look at life and laugh ... not a laugh of joy but a laugh that says how positively droll everyone's lives are around them.


Sound profile:

This laugh has a hardy roll and almost guffaw to it that lets people around know that the laugher is someone to be revered and who must ... from the sound of their laugh ... come from royal lineage or at least have rubbed shoulders, or shopped at the same store with a royal.


Difficulty:

This should only be attempted by master laughers and ONLY if you are a member of high society.  Those not holding the status and attempting this laugh may be scoffed at or called nouveau riche since any member of high society can tell when someone is faking the funk.  You've been warned.

Laugh #11 - the gobbler

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Inspiration:


This laugh is inspired by this time of year - Thanksgiving!  It's a gobble of a good time and is inspired by countless meals with loved ones gorging on this delicious bird, while wearing our stretchy pants so we can eat more and then pass out.


Sound profile:


This laugh sounds much like the bird it's named after...the turkey.  You can hear that this laugh is half gobble half good time.  It's a laugh that says stuff your face, laugh and take a nap. 


Difficulty:


This should only be attempted by master laughers.  Others might get hurt or worse...eaten.

Laugh #10 - the coffee spitter

Inspiration:

This laugh is inspired by three things..two of which are some of my favorites; Starbucks Coffee, and laughing.  The third thing is a result of a combination of the two that normally looks like a brown geyser.

Sound profile:

This laugh comes very unexpectedly and so it begins with the sound of surprise, followed by laughter literally bubbling out and then spewing out into the air along with the contents of the laugher's mouth.

Difficulty:

If happening unintentionally this can be a beginner laugh.  When attempting to execute this laugh on command this is definitely a master level laugh as the laugher needs to be cautious not to burn the surrounding public with boiling coffee.

Laugh #9 - the jester

Inspiration:

This laugh is inspired by Bugs Bunny...and not the new lame Bugs Bunny. There was an episode where he was dressed up as a jester and bouncing around with a great/harsh laugh.

Sound profile:

This is a great very sarcastic laugh that brings life to the party.  Just like a court jester this really gets the party and the laughs goin...without the creepy outfit.  The key to this laugh is delivery while doing a little skip around in a "S" shape. 


Difficulty:

This is an intermediate laugh because of the fancy footwork that goes along with this laugh.

Laugh #8 - The Fire and Forget

Inspiration:

This laugh is inspired by my time in the military.  Unlike when we launched something that was fire and forget the recipients normally weren't too happy - this laugh normally brings at least a smile to the targeted crowd that it is launched on.


Sound profile:

This is a loud boisterous laugh in which the sound itself only lasts a couple of seconds but the aftereffects are felt for quite awhile after the laugh is launched.  The laugher launches the laugh and then walks away.  This is bold and may catch its recipients off guard but its normally a welcome surprise.


Difficulty:

This is an easy laugh to master but the walk away is key and can sometimes make it difficult to master.  Due to the timing issue the laugh is classified as an intermediate level laugh.
