Sarcasm Makes You Smarter? Yeah, Right.

Can sarcasm make you smarter and a better problem-solver? Scientists seem to think so! Research suggests that when you hear sarcasm, your brain has to work harder to understand it. And this extra work helps us solve problems more creatively and helps us think on our feet better.

Sarcasm is a way to say what you mean by saying the opposite. It’s often seen as a gentler and funnier way to make fun of someone or to convey a point you are trying to make. But no matter what way you use it, sarcasm can be one of the most amusing forms of humor.

So why not make yourself just a bit sharper and smarter by buying one of our Primitives by Kathy Sarcastic Box Signs? You’ll be sure to find one that not only makes you smarter, it’ll make you chuckle too!

One of the funniest Primitives by Kathy Sarcastic Box Signs we sell is this gem right here:

This is a hilarious way to tell someone that you think they are wrong! This wisecrack is sure to delight the recipient or, if it’s a gift for yourself, it’s sure to make your guests laugh when they see it.

Primitives by Kathy Sarcastic Box Signs also have a great comeback to someone who is in a grumpy mood. If you’re dealing with a Gloomy Gus and need a funny way to lighten the mood, this one might do the trick:

These signs can also be a sarcastic reminder to your family that they need to do their own chores and not expect you to clean up after them! Sometimes, a little humor can go a long way.

Laughter is the Best Medicine: The Gift of Laughter

What do laughter and exercise have in common? There are several things, but the main one is they both can boost your health! There is a reason the phrase “laughter is the best medicine” is a cliché and a timeless classic. We here at The Funny Signdefinitely agree that when it comes to feeling better, few things help more than a good chuckle and the gift of laughter.

The gift of laughter can help alleviate stress by decreasing the amounts of the stress hormones cortisol and epinephrine. This, in turn, can help improve your immune system’s function. Plus, laughing at stressful situations is a great way to cope. When you laugh, that’s a good way of whistling in the dark.

Like exercise, the gift of laughter can also help improve your heart’s health by helping to lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation. It seems that laughter can help the tissue that lines your blood vessels expand, which allows for your blood to flow better.

Laughter is also a good source of aerobic exercise. If you laugh 100 times, it equals 15 minutes on a stationary bike or 10 minutes on a rowing machine, according to a Journal of Women’s Health article published in the July 29, 2004 issue. Plus, the gift of laughter can help to clear up your respiratory system, even just temporarily.

And if you’re in some pain, take the time to read a funny joke or watch a funny movie. That’s because laughing can help with pain relief by releasing endorphins. Laughter also can help alleviate feelings of anger and fear, so you’re better able to cope with the painful, negative or stressful situation.

So if you want to give the gift of laughter – to yourself or someone else – take the time to share a joke or watch a funny movie with someone you love. Or you can head over to The Funny Sign and buy a thoughtful and humorous gift that will be sure to tickle anyone’s funny bone! Just visit our online store to see what we have in stock!

The Perfect White Elephant Gift Exchange Gift

Are you participating in a White Elephant Gift Exchange this year? This tradition, also known as a Yankee Swap, is a popular party game for many companies, families and friends around the holiday season. It’s an easy way for a large group of people to exchange gifts without everyone spending a lot of money. If you’re looking for the perfect White Elephant Gift Exchange this year, stick with some funny home decor from The Funny Sign.

The Game
For those unfamiliar with a White Elephant Gift Exchange, we’ll explain the basics of the game. Each person brings a wrapped gift to the exchange, usually valued at a predetermined amount of money. All of the gifts are placed in the “pot” or gift box, filled with available gifts. Before the game begins, you write numbers (one for each participant) on scrap pieces of paper. Allow each participant to choose a number, and that will be the order in which people can choose their gifts.

Once the game begins, the person who drew the number one will get to go first. They’ll choose a gift and open it. Then the person with the number 2 on their paper will go next. They have a choice to take their chances by choosing an unopened gift from the pile of available gifts, or they can steal the gift that was just opened. There are many variations on the rules from there. Your group of participants will have to decide how the game plays out, like how many times a gift can be “stolen.”

Traditionally, White Elephant Gift Exchanges are notorious for tacky, inexpensive and under-appreciated gifts. The spending limit for this type of exchange is usually very low, thus resulting in trinkets as gifts or previously owned items being wrapped and re-gifted.

Game Changer
Do you want everyone fighting over your gift this year? Buy a funny sign! We have a wide variety of funny signs and funny home decor to sweeten the pot. You won’t go over budget, and you’ll have a high-quality gift, sure to be the envy of everyone playing the game.

Give the gift of laughter this holiday season! Stop by any of our retail locations today, or browse our selection online.

Gifts for Friends: Primitives by Kathy

What do you love most about your closest friends? That’s probably a pretty tough question to answer. There are so many things that we rely on our friends for throughout the year. As you’re shopping for gifts for them this holiday season, keep Primitives by Kathy in mind. These hilarious hanging and box signs make the perfect heartfelt gift. In this blog, we’re going to cover some of the reasons we all love our best friends.

They Can Keep a Secret

A good friend is a good listener. They know what to say to make us feel better, but also know what they can and cannot share with others. Our closest friends know the “real us,” but they love us anyway. And the good news is they’ll never be able to get rid of us because of all the knowledge we hold. Life-long friendships are strengthened during the good and bad times.

They Know How to Make Us Laugh

Sometimes the best way to deal with a situation is by just laughing at ourselves. Our best friends can help remind us of that. When life gets too hard, or stressful, sometimes laughter is the best medicine. A great friend knows exactly how and when to administer that kind of laugh therapy, even if it’s at our expense sometimes.

As Close as Family

Sometimes we have friends who get so close they grow to be more like family. They become the brothers and sisters we got to choose on our own. We interact with them the way we would a sibling. We listen to our closest friends differently and respect what they have to say. But we can also fight like family. At the end of the day, it’s love that keeps us together as a family.

Decorating for Halloween with Funny Signs

Are you scared of things that go bump in the night? October brings tricks, treats and frights. Halloween is just around the corner and it can be a dreary holiday. Combat its bleakness with some funny signs. Just because it’s supposed to be a spooky time of year doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun. Check out our online selection of funny signs to help brighten up Halloween.

Normal Family

Is your family more like the Addams Family than the Waltons? We know what that’s like. But, the outside world doesn’t know any better. Play it cool. Every family has their little quirks. Some families are odder than others but at the end of the day, a family that’s quirky together stays together. Don’t let the rest of the world in on your inside joke; as far as they know, you’re a nice normal family, remember?

Welcoming Cabin in the Woods

Not every cabin in the woods is a nightmare waiting to happen. Cabins can be a place to come together, relax and have fun. We’ve never run into a maniac in the woods at any of our cabins. Enjoy a serene get away, and don’t worry about any of the scary stuff. This Halloween, forget the haunts and enjoy the cabin. You’ll be glad you did!

Getting Through Halloween

Don’t care for Halloween at all? If witches, ghouls and ghosts are not up your alley, forget about it. Halloween is just one day. Do more of what you love. Enjoy the changing of the seasons. There are plenty of other things to look forward to in Fall. Decorate with pumpkins, acorns and fall colors instead. The beauty of fall is unmatched. So, take advantage of it in any way you can.
