Laugh #15 - the asthmatic santa

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Inspiration:

This laugh is inspired by this time of year and by the big ol' jolly guy that everyone thinks about.  This is after said guy has ate a few too many cookies and sucked in a little bit o' ash from slidin' down so many chimneys.

Sound profile:

This laugh starts with a hardy Ho Ho Ho...but then is interrupted by lack of breath so turns into a wheeze.  This is one of those laughs that you want to laugh along with but you also feel bad about.

Difficulty:

This can be executed by most intermediate laughers.  As long as you can wheeze good you should be able to nail this laugh and have it sitting under the tree as a nice present for a loved one.

Laugh #14 - the barrel full of fun

Inspiration:

This laugh is inspired by those barrel chested individuals who love to laugh heartily and by one of the Looney Tunes characters "the Colonel" from the episode "Dog Gone South" - he was the one that had the bulldog and would yell "Belvedere come'ere buoy!"

Sound profile:

This laugh is loud, commanding, and full of fun.  There is a repeating element to this laugh with the same boisterous part repeated over and over - with confidence.  The laugh takes over a crowd and makes bystanders either laugh along or cringe.


Difficulty:

This is a intermediate laugh.  This is due to the laugh repeating and not having too much fluctuation in tonality.

Laugh #13 - the sensy pants

Inspiration:

This laugh is inspired by that guy that everyone knows that is WAY too sensitive.  The one that likes to just sit down and have a good talk, possibly a cry, or maybe even a nice quiet night with a good book and a 'divine' glass of chardonnay.  The person I think is kind of sensitive like Bruce from Family Guy.



Sound profile:

This laugh starts as soft and unassuming as the laughers personality is.  It then ends with a sigh as to say 'hey there, I am laughin with you, but I am not judging you...just enjoying sharing this moment of laughter'.  Normally this laugh will go on noticed in the crowd and the laugher is fine with that...'wouldn't want to take away from the person in the spot light at the moment'.



Difficulty:

This can be executed by most beginners as it may just come naturally.  For those trying to do this laugh and not being a sensy pants it may pose to be a little bigger challenge and therefore I give it the intermediate difficulty ranking.
