The path to gaining eternal happiness has long since eluded man, but apparently it can be achieved through something as simple as a hip surgery. Meet Huug Bosse, a Dutch man who had hip surgery a couple of years ago, and hasn’t stopped laughing since. His wife finds it annoying, his brother and daughter have become exasperated, but all Mr. Bosse can do in response is slap his knee and laugh uncontrollably.
His laughter is infectious, I myself started to giggle aloud after watching the video about him. But it does get a little silly after a while. And imagine having to live with a person laughing in the house all the time. It must be impossible to hold serious conversations with the man, and that must be quite taxing for his family. The cause for his condition isn’t exactly clear, but it’s probably due to the anesthesia he was placed under, during the operation. In spite of all the mirth, there still is one thing that can move Mr. Bosse to tears. He calls it the most beautiful song – the Dutch national anthem. Perhaps they should have it playing in the background whenever they want to get a serious word out of the man.
Bosse’s wife says he was a normal man before he had his hip-replacement surgery, in 2010. Apparently the anesthesia he was under during the operation is to blame for his uncontrollable laughter. Although his daughter and brother don’t even visit him anymore because of his constant chuckling, Huug Bosse himself doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with him. He considers it normal for a person to have a change of personality, and says his clients think he’s the sweetest person in the world… His wife says he’s always had a sense of humor, but over the last two years he has been laughing all day long.
Could you live with someone like Huug, who does nothing but laugh all the time?
