🤫 Personal trainers don't want you to know this 😅
10 TO 15 MINUTES OF LAUGHTER CAN BURN UP TO 40 CALORIES
It's Laugh and Grow Rich Day, though I don't see what riches have to do with anything. Seems like kind of a stretch, sort of like my cheeky subject line.
Also, does laughter really even need a second value add? I don't think so — unless you happen to be a gelotophobe, a person with a fear of laughter. This both sounds like a terrible way to live AND would explain a lot about some of the haters in Boredwalk's comments.
Can you quit the gym and replace the treadmill with some tee-hee-hees? Only one way to find out! The fox below definitely likes this idea.
Foxes love to giggle and I find it almost impossible not to at least smile when I see a video of an exuberant fox having a great time, but it turns out foxes have taken up that laughing sound due to spending time with humans and learning that we like their laughter.
As is our tradition, we have a few links down below to help you get your laugh on, but before we get to that here are a few famous birthdays and historical facts about February 8th:
• Born on this day: actor James Dean (1931), actor Seth Green (1974), author Jules Verne (1828), actress Lana Turner (1921), and actor Gary Coleman (1968)
• The Hollywood Walk of Fame was established on this day in 1960, when it got its first 8 stars
• On this day in 1978 proceedings of the United States Senate were broadcast on the radio for the first time
Alright, you've waited long enough — on to the links!

ICYMI: the Boredwalk team has been racking up plenty of LOLs all over social media lately, with people especially loving our videos about glass floors, our coffee habit, and Grace's questionable baking decisions. If you're not yet following us on YouTube, TikTok and Instagram, you definitely should be (unless you're one of those gelotophobes)!
Here's a funny video about the Andrew Tate worshippers out there calling themselves "alphas."

This collection of short videos shows some useful tricks I've never seen and definitely plan to try.
I might never be as happy as this sea otter enjoying some ice cubes, but we can all live vicariously.

OK! We'll be back here in your inbox on Friday with new art, more nonsense holidays to dissect, more notable birthdays (and maybe even some notable deathdays!) to celebrate, and more witty content in general. Don't miss it! Until next time...
Peace, love, and laughs,
