It is a fact, laughter is good for your health

It is true, laughter reduces stress and tension, it releases feel good hormones and increases blood flow which benefits your heart. But most of all, it draws people together emotionally.
 Beautifully detailed oil paintings by Theo Michael serve as the setting for some funny and whacky banter of the characters in his paintings.
Enjoy these original paintings, combined with completely unoriginal jokes.
Have a laugh and good health to you.
