Make ‘Em Laugh

There are a million things that can drag down a day. Learn to laugh some of that off, and the load gets exponentially lighter.

What makes you laugh, chuckle, chortle, guffaw, giggle, titter, twitter, tee-hee, snigger, snicker or yuk?

In the motion picture, Singin’ In The Rain, the song “Make ’Em Laugh” is most notable for the physically demanding stuff O’Connor does around the melody—slapstick pratfalls, wild mugging, and inventive pantomime with a headless dummy—but that stuff’s all in line with the song and its place in the movie. But did you know that “Make ’Em Laugh” is a complete ripoff of “Be A Clown” from a 1948 Gene Kelly/Judy Garland movie “The Pirate.” Watch them both and compare. (click the images below to play)

Apparently the song writers of each tune didn’t care very much about the plagiarism and even acknowledged it from the start. Funny- strange? Or funny- Ha Ha? :-)

We hope to make you laugh a once or twice or a million times at BACCHUS TRIVIA at 7PM. Why? The theme of tonight’s tilt is LAUGHTER!
