- Laughter is the best medicine. A collection of humor from the best in the profession of pharmacy.
- While the oral telling of a rib-tickler differs from the written jest, all the shaggy dog stories, the “Gotcha!” jokes & the chestnuts of everyday history in some of the Short Snorts, are all in clean fun & packed with guffaws & giggles.
- You can imagine these industrious people laboring long hours to decipher doctors’ scrawls, count pills & print labels, getting a bit punch drunk & lobbing back & forth hoary old puns, unabashed gags & often, telling little aphorisms.
- Philosophical Pharmacist
Cliff Thomas, R.Ph.: Dispenses humor and Laughter
“Laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you simply get wet.”
That’s a favorite comment of humorist Cliff Thomas, a pharmacist who has earned a reputation as The Philosophical Pharmacist.
After many years behind his prescription counter he has filled over a million prescriptions. Now he has stepped out of the corner drug store to become a humorous after dinner speaker.
Over the past few years he has given over five hundred presentations to a variety of audiences all across the country.
His messages have been described as “motivating, versatile, funny, interesting and entertaining,” and they have been well received.
“A teaspoon of sugar makes the medicine go down,” and he sincerely believes that laughter is the best medicine.
The popular speaker uses his humor, optimism and enthusiasm in his presentations.
He is a natural story teller who has an abundance of hilarious anecdotes from his many years as a pharmacist dealing with people.
He delivers his messages on the wings of humor.
“Something special happens when people laugh together over something genuinely funny and not hateful to anyone.
It’s like a magic rain that showers down a feeling of comfort, safety and belonging to the group,” he says. “We cannot control all of the things that happen to us in our lives, but we do have a certain degree of control over our reaction to them.
Look for the humor in every life situation because it is always there. Then, if you can laugh at your situation, you can live with it. Laughter is the best medicine for a long and happy life. “He who laughs – lasts”.
