You no longer need to feel ‘bad’ for having a quirky sense of humour – its how we humans deal with stress!
We often hear in the civilian press, about armed forces, emergency services, NHS and HMP personnel who get hauled over the coals for daring to laugh at stuff which most people, who have never witnessed anything more harrowing than a ‘violent’ episode of East Enders, will never get to see!
There tends to be considerable misunderstanding when individuals who have not served, attempt to try and rationalise just how members of the emergency services, armed forces & NHS will often end up bantering about ‘things’ which would probably upset most people.
As an example, let us take the fictitious ] scenario of someone in the emergency services turning up to an incident whereby a ‘service user’ has managed to get a large cucumber wedged up their anus.
Now, many people will feel empathy for the ‘service user’ with the slender cucumber that has ‘somehow’ become firmly wedged into the anal cavity of the vegetable-loving citizen.
And rightly so.
Anyone who has suffered from constipation should be able to relate to the ‘compacted’ feeling of having too much weight in your tender bowels.
But in order to ‘process’ (mentally) such an horrific sight, those in the emergency services (in this example) might end up bantering about the incident when they are back at the Station.
Bantering about incidents such as the ‘wedged cucumber’, helps the mind to understand and rationalise why anyone would want to stick a cucumber up their bum for pleasure in the first place.
Take our hugely popular fortnightly digital magazine affectionately named ‘S__ts & Giggles’ as a prime example as to what ‘normal’ people might not find funny, but those with a ‘dark’ sense of humour will find funny.
I am not talking here, about the sort of material that you will find on ‘Live Leak’ or the sort of material that will cost you your job if you are caught sharing it in your ‘private’ WhatsApp Group.
The sense of humour required to laugh at that kind of really dark stuff is more akin to a fetish than a sense of humour!
Instead of the really dark content, I am referring to material and content that, if you did not laugh at the spectacle before you, then you would probably end up crying instead.
We are now up to our 39th Issue of our popular Digital Magazine, which we started nearly two years ago after Facebook kept sending our Admins to ‘Facebook jail’ for daring to share ‘edgy’ content publicly.
We knew that there was an ‘appetite’ for the sort of funny material that melts the legions upon legions of snowflakes, but we just weren’t sure about the best way of sharing it without having to do serious Facebook jail time.
And that is how the idea for our satirical digital magazine, S__ts & Giggles, was born.
We hear ALL of the time from our wonderful subscribers, about how, for example, they may be having a bad day at work only to then spend 15-25 minutes reading the latest issue of S__ts & Giggles.
After they have digested the latest issue of our medley of prime content, they are able to return back to work and deal with the sort of incidents which would leave most people wondering what the hell just happened…
So there you have it; laughter REALLY is stress leaving the body!
And if you enjoy having a chuckle, then make sure you subscribe to the next issue of our popular digital magazine! Anyone can subscribe, whether you are in the emergency services or not (just as long as you have a half-decent sense of humour).

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories & videos which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services & NHS by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' back in 2018 was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services & NHS which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of you, our readers.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
