Humor & Inspiration


At the Co-op, we firmly believe regular and hearty laughter is a vital ingredient to good health (and we have the research to back it up). We also believe in good stories to keep the heart warm.

Here are a few stories we love and funnies that crack us up on a regular basis. If you’ve got a funny you think can make us laugh out loud or a story you think will tug out our heart strings, send an email to the kat, and if we agree and feature your contribution on the website, we’ll send you a Gift Certificate good for 15% off your next purchase.


Nothing like a collection of funny animal videos to brighten your day. Enjoy!
