Laughing In Tough Times

These days, any excuse to laugh is a good one. And even with its sometimes shady reputation, the internet is a prime place to find this humor. You can uncover everything from one-liners, to humorous essays and stories, to the decrepit knock-knock. Comic strips, YouTube videos, and even the occasional status update on Facebook are sources of comedy.

Although I have taken care to choose quality, trustworthy sites, keep in mind that neither I nor KDL can take responsibility for all content contained therein.

I am a Circulation Assistant at the Lowell branch of Kent District Library. My job is to make a patron’s visit to the library circulation desk fun, easy, and informative. In other words, “circuliscious.”
