Waking Up Is Hard To Do…Humor Does Work

February 1, 2013

The post I made yesterday about humor in the funeral profession did ruffle feathers (it was meant to). But it also brought some other professions to my attention that have used humor to address very serious situations.

I got the following Youtube link from my good friend Alan Creedy. Alan pinned in his email to me the following:

Just imagine the sense of professional horror among anesthesiologists when this video came out.  But check out the hits on their various videos.  As a potential patient it gives me a chance to see them as a person with a sense of humor.  Warm, approachable and caring.

I echo Alan’s views and opinions.

So I ask you:

Is there a place for humor in the funeral profession?
