Heating Up: "The Ice Cream Man is Coming!!"

Posted: Updated:

It's getting warm again and that only means one thing, the sweet, sweet sound of an ice cream truck. Yes, you may be way too old to chase them, but there's no reason to forego the season of four-wheeling frozen treats.

We all remember that special ice cream truck jingle and how it could send anyone into a fit of excitement, no matter what age. Get Ready for 26 seconds that is sure to make you howl with Laughter!

These two brothers became so excited when the Ice Cream Truck hit their street, Well watch what happens next.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O.K. Now that you have watched the video, my guess is most of you laughed, a few probably felt sorry for the little boys.  Which begs the question.  Why is it exactly do we find it funny when someone else falls down?

William F. Fry, a psychiatrist and laughter researcher at Stanford University, explains:

"Every Human develops a sense of humor, and everyone's taste is slightly different. But certain fundamental aspects of humor help explain why a misstep may elicit laughter".

The first requirement is the "play frame," which puts a real-life event in a nonserious context and allows for an atypical psychological reaction.

Another crucial characteristic is incongruity, which can be seen in the improbable or inconsistent relation between the "punch line" and the "body" of a joke or experience.

Falls are incongruent in the normal course of life in that they are unexpected. So despite our innate empathetic reaction—you poor fellow!—our incongruity instinct may be more powerful. Provided that the fall event establishes a play frame, mirth will likely ensue.

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
