If making people smile, brightening their day so that happiness, laughter, cheer and an upward curve on the bottom of their face may spread like contagion, could provide me with food, water, shelter, and comfort, I would do it. I would be that street comedian with the disposition of a clown and the wardrobe of an everyday citizen. I would tell the black suits to cheer up because for once their wives are not nagging them about something and it therefore must be a great day. The homeless panhandlers and I would people-watch and I would say, “I see why you’re dressed like this. You don’t have a mirror – but what’s her excuse.” The streets would be filled with a constant uproar of laughter. For those moments, people will forget their problems and their pain. They may not have a brighter outlook on life, but they may have a brighter outlook on the day. Everyone around will catch that outlook like the common cold and spread it even further. People will be more kind to one another. People’s behavior will more likely manifest love for the next person if they have a joke on their mind and a smile on their face. This street comedian would change the world with one kind act, one joke, and one smile at a time and sit back to watch the exponential spread of love. Love-filled jokes would hinder the increasing presence of hatred and hateful acts, making this world a better place.
