Still, for most of us this is a time when we could all use a bright spot in our day, a little something to give us a brief smile, a pleasant moment, a little point of light.
To this end, I'm going to post a series on a few people who, during this time of worldwide sickness, sadness, and uncertainty, are using their Facebook pages to share a bit of daily laughter, comfort, or diversion to brighten our days.
As I have only a couple of subjects to write about at this point - subsequently it'll probably be a short series - I'm going to call the series A Couple Points of Light, the idea being to share these Facebook pages with anyone who might like to become followers and enjoy a little point of light in their day.
Now, lots of people share jokes on their Facebook page. But Mark Harris shares consistently great jokes. Awesome jokes. Funny jokes.
His joke shares began popping up on my Facebook feed shortly after we friended, our acquaintance having been made from sharing the same publisher, Black Rose Writing.
I contacted Mark and asked him where he found such an abundance of great jokes. He replied:
"Where do I get the jokes...from searching around Facebook, pretty much. I scroll through my feed each day and save any jokes that I think are really funny. Sometimes they are from Facebook pages like Facebook Puns, or Dad Jokes, and sometimes they are something one of my FB friends has posted. I keep a file of them and pick one each night to post.
The jokes he posts are often of the double-entendre variety.
...while others might take a moment to figure out.
Some are groaners,
...and some are just uncategorizably funny.
Those are just a few. The jokes on Dr. Harris's Facebook page are great in number.
Mark shared as his reason for posting his found jokes, "(I'm) Just trying to brighten someone's day,"
And he does indeed. You can follow his jokes on his Facebook page, Mark R. Harris.
