This high-power magnet is your ticket to laughter and fun. While you drive. Just drop this baby in an empty coffee cup -Starbucks cardboard cups work well (leave the lid off) – put it on the roof of your car and drive around town. How you handle all of the helpful folks who wanna help you save your $3.50 mocha java is up to you, but you are guaranteed to keep you mind off the lousy traffic or how you’re late when you have one of these one the roof.
A couple of my favorite things to say to folks who point the cup to me include:
”Thanks! I’m cooling it off!”
”I know! I don’t really like coffee.”
“I’m trying to cut down on caffeine.”
But I gotta admit, I usually just wave back and act clueless. (This isn’t hard for me… I’ve had years of practice.
Here are a couple more ideas that can make it different:
This little bad boy is your ticket to joy! It’s a security tag used to prevent shoplifting. This one has been modified by removing the permanent pin and adding a special clip so that you can safely put it on — and take it off! — your clothes. Why? Because it’s funny!
There are two ways to execute the gag. My favorite way is to wear the tag myself. I love to put it on the back of my clothes — the back of my jacket, the back of my pants, or the back of my shirt. This method takes more patience but it is funnier because people will eventually see it and wonder if you actually are unaware of the tag. Some people will see it, be puzzled by it, and not say anything! When people point it out, I say something like, “Yeah, it’s new. How do you like my new jacket?” (Act serious and you’ll get a puzzled look that will keep you smiling for days.) Or you can

One of the easiest ways to earn a smile is to wear a clown nose. Not only does it get the folks you interact with to smile, but best of all it is impossible to be grouchy when you've got a ball of red foam on your face. Try it. It's impossible.
When do you wear it? What do you do?
I find that the funniest way to wear the nose is to put it on and to act completely normal. I don't smile. I don't laugh. The irony of a normal, nicely-dressed person wearing a clown nose is like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day; it just makes you feel good inside.
I wore it the other day when I picked up my 2-year-old at day care. I walked up to the teacher and asked straight forwardly, “How was the day today? How did my daughter do?” I did not mention the clown nose. She just looked at me, paused, and smiled. I'm pretty sure she thinks I'm a complete dork, but it just cracked me up. And the other teachers were laughing too.

Hear Brad’s kids laughing & joking!
A magician goes for a job interview in an office. The interviewer,knowing that magicians are stupid, decides to start with the basics. “So, sir, can you tell us your age, please?”
The magician counts carefully on his fingers for about 30 seconds before replying “Ehhhh … 22!”.
The interviewer tries another straight forward one to break the ice.”And can you tell us your height, please?”.
The magician stands up and produces a measuring tape from his hand bag. She then traps one end under his foot and extends the tape to the top of his head. He checks the measurement and announces, “Five foot two!”.
This isn’t looking good so the interviewer goes for the real basics. “And ehh, just to confirm for our records, your name please?”
The magician bobs his head from side to side for about twenty seconds,mouthing something silently to himself, before replying, “Brad!”.
The interviewer is completely baffled at this stage, so he asks “Just out of curiosity,
