Baby's Laugh Makes Dealing With Rejection Easier

What's the best way to deal with a rejection letter? Crumple it up and throw it in the trash? No, that's too pedestrian. What you really need to do is tear it into tiny pieces all while making your baby laugh hysterically.
McArthur says he's finishing up his doctorate at SLU and applying for professor jobs.  When he received yet another rejection letter he ripped it in half and baby Micah started laughing uncontrollably, so he started ripping credit card statements and the sweet sounds of laughter continued.

Judging from all the laughing babies on the web, it seems that their laughter is a startle reaction to someone saying "Boo" or ripping paper.
It seems to be a tension reliever.
In any event, it is irresistibly wonderful.
