Laughter is Contagious
By Philippe Rouillé

Dear Robbie, I am afraid your translation was not right.  I said:

> Comme on dit en francais : "plus on est de fous, plus on rit".

You translated :

>["As one says in French: 'The crazier you become, the more you laugh.'"
>[Is that about you or me?  Or maybe the both of us!  ;)  -- Robbie

Definitely both of us.  The real translation should be something like :

 "The more the number of crazy people gathered together increases,
  the more these people will laugh".

(You said that about 1100 subscribe to the MMD ?)

Amities,

Philippe Rouille  (Paris, France)

 [ MMDigest has both laughing and wailing -- c'est normal.  ;)
 [ The class on French proverbs lies far ahead of me!  -- Robbie
