Has the president gone mad?

At the height of the civil war when Union defeats were at their worst, Abraham Lincoln called a cabinet metting. He opened a joke book and started reading it aloud, laughing along the way. The cabinet members didn’t quite know what to do. They all thought the president had gone over the edge and lost his mind. When he finished and put the book down he reportedly said “Gentlemen, if I could not find something to laugh about at times like these, I fear I could go out of my mind.”

With that advice, I offer up a few laughs I found on youtube. Enjoy.
