This is one of the Japanese proverbs explaining the things and situations are very funny or ridiculous. It is said that this is because your belly looks like teakettle is boiling when you laugh so hard.
It is similar to the English proverb, ‘laugh until one’s sides split.’. Although this Japanese proverb is often used when things are ridiculously more than funny.
There is a famous scientific fact that laughter is good for the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells so that NK (natural killer) cells which fight against cancer cells and viruses get stimulated.
