CLARKS SUMMIT — Outside Everything Natural’s big storefront windows Tuesday was a dreary scene with a gray sky and rain. But inside the shop, the atmosphere was light with laughter.

Owner Barry Kaplan and guest comedian Johnny Braz dished out the best — and worst — jokes they could come up with during the Laughter For Tractors fundraiser, collecting donations from shoppers for the Indraloka Animal Sanctuary in Mehoopany.

“Where does satisfaction come from?” Kaplan asked. “Satisfaction comes from the satis-factory.”

“Where was that one joke I told that was semi-funny?” asked Braz, flipping through a thick joke book, generating more laughs from observers.
