“A man is no more poor, if he can still laugh”
. Raymond Hitock

Yes it works for Ethiopians & all mankind. Our grandpas have been laughing even hard time to get away for inner problems. Almost all kings have traditional therapists called yengus achawach like Aleka Gebrehana. Aleka Gebrehana was the most well known by his jokes to the generation. Even though fights in the battle are very stiff, there is always laughter! When we trace back to our history, all kings have their own Klawana or kalian or "yenguse Achawach` who is devoted to make the kings smile with different techniques. Laughter is the best friend of Ethiopians even at the worst of times. As social anthropologist Martin once said most societies used laughter even during morning of death times. The ancient Ethiopian use it even now days this is common called “YELEKISO BET ACHAWACH”
When Emperor King Minilik was struggling to unite Ethiopia in the battle to bring under his knee King Tona of Wolayta & king Delebeto of Kenbata he was in the tent in the border place for his last hard mission. The young boy with lovely speech before they control the region asks the wll of the Emperor MiniliK to bless him so that he will cultivate the land of Alaba and make fertile land. Dejazmach Meshesha erupted to laughter. A young boy with a name Anbereber make laugh Ras Meshesha (marshal of the military power) who seems never laughed throughout his life. The laughter spread to the next tent of the king and the king said “Mengesha, Mengesha what makes you laugh?” he says the boy make me laugh, and the king ordered to send the boy to him. He approached and bowed down. Then the King asked the boy how could he makes Ras Mengesha laugh?

The boy gently responded “I asked Mengesha if he can give me his virgin land so that I will cultivate and make fertility then he was erupted into laughter.” The king starts laughing unusually and called Mengesha to bring the big registrar file. The king gave Anberebere one hector land which makes him become very rich feudal with additional honored title of `Dejazmach Amberber.` The community well observed the effect of laughter in administration said “Yemengesha sake le Amberber habt honelet” litteraly mean `look the laughter of Mengesha become wealth for Anberber.` Yes laughter is the means of health & wealth by building connection! The amazing history is supported with historical evidence of 1000 square guest house called D.A on the front door is located in front of Belgium Embassy next to British Embassy in Addis Ababa a house of laughter wealth. When we try to figure out the nature of biological and social element of human beings, laughter is primal way of communicating in the ancient societies. Laughter is social glue, diplomacy pass key and universal language! The laughing eyes and shiny face are more than anything! A very wise idiom of Ethiopians “Kefitfitu Fitu” literally translated as `a smiling face is more than serving a delicious food`.

Our country is practically doing the indigenous laughter with observable endemic tradition ethnics culture. Laughing during a problem meaning it does not avoid or change the problem but it gives get a way & energy to solve the problem & cop-up in the problem. You will laugh on famine and disaster!! (Job 5:2). Yes come and see go everywhere & observe the Ethiopians can laugh on famine & disaster & get way the indigenous laughter is greatly reviving in the 21 century within 12 years nationally & internationally!! Ethiopia is the only country tens of thousands of people come together and laugh with millions for consecutive years. The Ethiopian National Laughter day Testimony

The American cancer society started laughter therapy on the 13 century and discovered Joy is best medicine for the heart as it is mentioned on proverb -12 verses 22. This discovery brings me to prayer and to keep laughing since it is the gift of GOD. Laughing at your pain, poverty and oppression won’t make go away but it will make those problems seen confrontable and easier to handle. That seems to be the message that Don Bumstick brings with him when he speaks to young people.

`Success is never Ending Failure is never final`
