hardy har har

As a phrase, it’s like laughing with words; a subsitute for “haha”; when you want to laugh but can’t so you say hardy har har.

A Hanna-Barbera cartoon with Lippy The Lion and Hardy Har Har began in 1962.

Hardy Har-Har was based upon the postman on ‘The Burns and Allen Show’ on radio and had the same voice, same pessimistic personality and used the same expressions. (“Oh, dear!” and “Keep smiling!”)
