“Laughter provides a train wreck for the mind, suspending thought and being in the moment, which opens the channels for innovative, creative thinking. You can’t think while you are laughing. Try it. Try doing a calculus problem (or moving a couch) while in the throes of laughter. It can’t be done. But what it does do is metaphorically open the cranial channels and allow for creative, innovative thinking to emerge.” (Lemons, G. 2005)
