What’s with the water works?

Standard

“These Olympics are a disaster; I burst into tears every time someone wins a gold. It doesn’t matter what country they’re from. I’m completely unstable.” Chelsea Handler

First, let me say that I am not normally a cryer. I’m sort of that NY tough on the outside, or so people say. On the inside I’m mush, but I try not to let many people know that. Some of you have already firgured it out.  A kind word or someone else crying will have me quietly excuse myself or make a joke to change the subject, but most things I take in stride.

So you’ll understand why I was so happy to read comedian Chelsea Handler’s comment on the Olympics. Now she is one tough broad and if she is crying every time someone does well, I don’t feel so badly. Is it just me and Chelsea or are we all choked up all over the world? I don’t think I can take much more but if I shed a tear over fencing I’m checking myself in somewhere. Okay enough about crying, here comes the joke:

If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is “God is crying.” And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is “Probably because of something you did.”
