Humor Made in the USA, Issue #001 -- Guaranteed to Make You Smile
February 01, 2015

Hello from Mike:

Did a show last week and the audience was really enjoying my stories. Lots of laughter, lots of fun.

After the show, an audience member came up to me and said "thank you for your funny stories, we needed to hear them."

She was right, in today's hurry up, stress-filled world, we all need to take a break and have something to laugh about.

Here's your chance to laugh -

Keep smiling


In This Edition

In this super fun issue, you'll laugh at my Uncle Ed as he discovers that using the wrong toothpaste is a good way to have a really bad start to your day -


Learn how your business, organization or group can have Michael R Dougherty perform "Humorous Stories from ALASKA... and beyond" at an upcoming gathering.

Never Brush Your Teeth with Your Eyes Closed

Uncle Ed was starting his day with a hangover headache. As he made his way to the bathroom sink to brush his teeth, he kept his eyes nearly closed.

Once standing over the sink he closed his eyes all the way as he fumbled around with his hands to find his tooth brush and his toothpaste.

Uncle Ed unscrewed the cap to his toothpaste, then fumbled around to squeeze out some toothpaste onto his tooth brush.

Now, with his eyes still closed, he began vigorously brushing his teeth.

Seconds later a horrible taste began filling his mouth. Uncle Ed's eyes shot open as he gagged and began trying to spew the horrible taste out of his mouth, but the taste wasn't going away easily.

He continued to gag and spew and quickly filled a water glass to rinse his mouth.

What was that horrid, awful taste? What was wrong with his toothpaste?

Uncle Ed looked down at the tube of toothpaste, rubbed his blurry eyes and looked again.

"You've got to be kidding me" shouted Uncle Ed.

There on the sink was the tube he had used to brush his teeth -

It was a tube of Preparation H, which is of course an ointment that's used to shrink hemorrhoids - those painful bumps that we humans sometimes get on our back sides.

With his eyes closed, Uncle Ed had brushed his teeth with Preparation H.

Now he had a hangover headache and a mouth full of the yucky flavor of hemorrhoid ointment. Not a good start for anyone's day.
