"He's the best baby in the world. And the cutest," says Li. Li then sings the Beastie Boys song "You Gotta Fight, For Your Right, To Partaaay!" as if Kanoa was singing it. (I've been singing it in the silly "Kanoa voice" too and Li mimics that here.) Notice that Kana still fawns over him lots! (9633)
This is a great video of our jolly guy! (9684)

What is World Laughter Day? Wednesday, 07 May 2008 13:51
What is World Laughter Day? “World Laughter Day” was created in 1998 by Dr. Madan Kataria, founder of the worldwide Laughter YogaLogo - WLD 09 movement.
The celebration of World Laughter Day is a positive manifestation for world peace and is intended to build up a global consciousness of brotherhood and friendship through laughter. Its popularity has grown exponentially with that of the Laughter Yoga movement (now counting over 6000 Laughter Clubs worldwide on all 5 continents). Why a “World Laughter Day”?Today, many people fear widespread international terrorism. The world has never faced so much unrest before. People are at war within themselves. Laughter is a positive and powerful emotion that has all the ingredients required for individuals to change themselves and to change the world in a peaceful and positive way. It directly impacts one’s electro-magnetic field and creates a positive aura around that person. When a group of individuals laugh together, they create a collective community aura. Electromagnetic waves from a group who are laughing every day form a protective envelope around that area to protect it from negative forces (similarly, people believed in ancient India that one saintly person was enough to protect the entire village). Laughter is a universal language, which has the potential to unite humanity without religion. Laughter can establish a common link between various religions and create a new world order. The idea may sound over-ambitious, and maybe it is. But maybe it is not. It is our deep belief that laughter and only laughter can unite the world, building up a global consciousness of brotherhood and friendship.
Katie directed a play of Kana and Li one day. Here are some of their "takes." (Lines may differ in each video)
Kana and Li's play, take 1.
Kana: Hey! What is that?
Li: You have no idea what this is?!! Out! (pause) I said faster, faster. I wanna buy (cut)
Kana and Li's play, take 2.
Kana: Hey, what's that?
Li: You have no idea what this is?! You are a barbarian! Leave my shop! Humph!
Kana: Hey, I wanna buy that.
Kana and Li's play, take 3.
Katie says, "Dance guys, dance!" (Or is it "Scream guys, scream!!)
