Once upon a time there was a boy. His name was Ha-Ha-Ha. He
was named that because he laughed all the time, One day he went to
a man. He asked him how to get rid of his laugh so he would not
laugh all the time.

The man said to laugh into a bottle and throw the bottle in
the lake. So he did it, and then he didn't Ha-Ha all the time.
Then he was burping all the time so he did the same thing, and then
he hiccupped so he did the same thing. The man said he lied. The
boy Said it worked.
