Laughter is Good for the Soul and Your Bank Account!

We all know that laughter is the best medicine, but did you also know that it could help you win some free cash for college? It’s true! is once again offering the Make Me Laugh Scholarship, and one winner will be laughing all the way to the bank. To enter, simply share a funny or embarrassing moment from your life. A not-so-funny $1,500 is on the line, so you’ll need to seriously consider your response before submitting an application.

Need a little inspiration? Just think back to some of the moments shared on YouTube or America’s Funniest Videos that have made you laugh out loud. It doesn’t have to be anything outrageous, either. For example, maybe you made a grand entrance at your high school graduation, but it didn’t turn out exactly as you had planned.

Or perhaps you had some trouble during a romantic walk with your significant other.

 Quite possibly, your dear old dad is the one who caused considerable embarrassment at the wrong moment.

 Or maybe your new husband thought he was marrying a breakfast food (waffley wedded wife, lol).

Of course, nothing is quite as bad as passing out on national television directly behind the President of the United States, but we’re pretty sure she’s not applying for the scholarship.

Now that you have some ideas on how to get the scholarship committee’s attention, it’s time to start reviewing your past blunders and share one of them with the world. If you win, everyone will know you’re not perfect, but who cares? You’ll be $1,500 richer.
