       It is often said that laughter is the best medicine; however it can be a tough pill to swallow for those on the receiving end of it. People can be uniquely upset by a joke pulled at their expense. A gag that would have been hilarious under any other circumstance becomes a personal affront of the highest offense. We’ve all seen this happen: an ingenious prank is pulled off and, instead of joining in the ensuing laughter, the target becomes sullen and decidedly pouty faced. This response begs the question, why so serious? It would be much better for all involved if, instead of sulking in a personal pity party, a person could just accept the fact that they’ve been duped and laugh along. A successful joke should be, if not cheered, at least grudgingly respected. As such, an entire Wolfpack Weekly full of joke articles should receive a thunderous applause. Happy April Fool’s Day!
