Awards for "Laughter is the Best Medicine"

So about 5 days ago I solicited some good jokes to help Kim laugh. (see post here). Trying to find winners was nearly an impossible task, because so many of your entries were so good. Seriously, I have a six-pack from laughing so hard (it's still hidden under layers of fat, but trust's there.) Kim finally decided on the jokes below. I had to include a couple videos that had me crying.

Winners: (Lina, Steve L, tk, and Sonia). Email me ( your home address and we will send you a nice little prize in the mail soon. Thanks everyone for participating - every single one of them was great!

first rectal exam i did as a 3rd year medical student - i was young, scared, and thrown into the wolves all alone. i could tell something was off but couldn't put my finger on it (no pun intended). then suddenly it hit me. most doctors wear gloves during rectal exams.

moral of the story: don't let a 3rd year medical student touch you, ever.

ps i figured with pete's bar set so low, i could comfortably share this story. i won't confirm or deny it in person though.

Hey guys, thought I would try to share a funny story from childhood.

When I was in the third grade my mom asked me what I wanted to be for Halloween. I told her I wanted to be a bat because I had been reading some batman comics and thought this would be an awesome halloween costume. Bless her soul, my mom went to the fabric store and spent the next week sewing a costume that would transform me from a timid korean boy into a ferocious black bat. She even engineered large fabric wings that I could flap as I ran around in circles. I was so proud and couldn't wait to go to school the next morning.

When I got to school for halloween I was excited to show off my costume. The teachers lined us up so we could present our costumes to the other third grade home room classes and I was sure mine would impress my friends. As we visited the other classrooms I flapped my wings and tried to look as scary as possible.

In the last class there was a girl named Nicole that i had a crush on, and i was determined to impress her. I flapped, jumped, and danced around and was reveling in my performance as the scariest bat ever to ever appear in My elementary school. I was confident that Nicole would be amazed and that I would win her over.

As we were getting ready to leave her class i looked up, and there she was right in front of me with a smile on her face. I tried to contain myself while I waited for her to tell me how cool she thought my costume was. Instead she asked me the following question:

"Are you wearing a leotard?"

I hadn't realized it until then, but I was in fact, wearing my sister's black leotard.

P.S. Kim's echocardiogram yesterday showed fluids at same level around her heart. They didn't feel surgery was necessary at this point and we have to monitor and come back for another echo on Wed. Thank you God!


  1. Lina never disappoints, lol! The videos were hilarious! Thanks for all the updates. Kindra

  2. that second video was hilarious. i registered at today. thanks for letting us know!

  3. Dear Peter and Kim,

    I just wanted to tell you both how awesomely inspiring you are and how much I draw from your experiences and words as I was recently diagnosed with lymphoma 3 weeks ago. My first sign of comfort came from your blog and how faithful you all are throughout everything. And truly it is what they say that the cancer family is truly like no other, but the cancer Christian family surpasses all. I pray for you and your family, and I know that God is speaking to all of us through you. My heart goes out to you all.

    May blessings fall on you continuously from Him, esp during this time.

    Peace and Grace,

  4. Hilarious - Erika
