Last time I belly-laughed was when my friend Deva and I were talking about our favorite grungy bars. In the late '90s, I worked at Deddens' Highland Fling on Bardstown Road. The bar used one bottle of Windex over its 20-something-year existence, and it was never refilled. When the place closed in 2000, that was my souvenir — a glass bottle of Windex with one inch of liquid left. I laughed about that, and about owner Lois Deddens' unwanted collection of frog tchotchkes. She hated those frogs, but people thought she collected them. Suki Anderson Art director I am not super-proud of this, but the Netflix animated show Big Mouth kills me. For the uninitiated: It's a highly raunchy, fairly accurate portrayal of middle-schoolers going through puberty. Maya Rudolph (a comic goddess, in my book) voices a "hormone monster" who encourages naughty deeds and vicious attitudes toward parents. This dirty little cartoon can reach peak levels of awkward and R-rated behavior, but anyone who survived puberty deserves a chance to laugh at it. Anne Marshall Senior writer I do marketing for Against the Grain Brewery, and part of our gimmick for a beer festival in Boston was a Benjamin Franklin costume.

Katie Molck Contributing writer This definitely isn't the most recent time, but it popped into my head as one of my favorite bouts of laughter. We were six teenage girls hanging out in my parents' basement. The late-night chatter began to dissipate as, one by one, we drifted off. Some of us were still chatting when, out of nowhere, my sleeping friend Olivia said, "Can I help the next person in line?" We burst out laughing so hard it woke her up, and she joined in. Megan Heinsohn Event coordinator Two nights ago with my roommates. All five of us piled into one bed and giggled for hours. We like to imagine what our life will look like when we're older, and we think up the most imaginative storylines for the future versions of us. Our personal favorite is one of my roommates and I ending up like the show Grace and Frankie — living together forever because everyone sees us as a package deal. Maya O. McKenzie Editorial intern When Conan O'Brien took his show to Havana, Cuba, he filmed in a Cuban grocery that had very few product choices but miles and miles of the products it did have. The proprietor approached as the camera's wide-angle lens was showing
