Sometimes, we just can’t help but laugh out loud

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At the Art Market juried art show at Honey Horn, we asked: “When is the most inappropriate time you burst out laughing?”

Nathan Favors, Bakersville, N.C.: “I think that would be right now!”

Anne Jennings, Lady’s Island: “At my mother’s funeral – and she would have loved it. I was with girlfriends, who were also her students.”

Nancy Carney, Bluffton: “In a meeting where I’m supposed to be quiet – and I’m sitting next to one particular friend. And she knows who she is!”












Murray Sease, Bluffton: “At my father’s funeral, sitting in the front row, my then 3-year-old raised his arm in what looked like a Hitler salute. I was horrified, but couldn’t help laughing.”

Claus Newman, Bluffton: “A guy was sitting in front of me in a work meeting. I tied one end of a piece of twine to his belt loop and one to his chair. When he got up and dragged the chair with him, we all laughed.”
