ANSWER: Experts say that laughter and smiles are the expression of happy and pleasureable feelings. Experts sort out our emotions into two main groups. One consists in the feelings of anger, fear, hate. When we feel such j emotions, bodily processes are speeded up; the heart beats faster, sending more blood into the veins, giving extra energy to use if we have to take some extreme action. The other, more pleasant group of emotions is the one containing joy, happiness, love. Laughter is said to be connected with this group. If we are very happy, the bodily processes speed up, too, but there is usually not much physical work to be accomplished. So we instinctively "work off" this extra energy by exercising our facial muscles with smiles or laughter or perhaps waving our arms and jumping around as the happy young , folks are doing in our picture. The sound of laughter is caused by the vibration in the diaphragm, a large dome- shaped muscle separating the chest from the abdomen. Funny things also make us laugh. Jokes generally show familiar things in unexpected, ridiculous new situations. The same idea makes the clown funny (small picture). (Shawn Lahman of Rochester, Minn., wins a prize for this question.
