A Word of Caution

Not everyone has the same sense of humor, so what one person finds amusing might bore or offend someone else. Before you decide to share the video clips that make you laugh with friends, family members, or coworkers consider whether they're likely to be entertained by the material. The last thing you want to do is risk alienating someone you're trying to cheer up with a video the individual might not find to be appropriate or entertaining.
