You know they can turn a dilapidated house into a stunning home, but did you know Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines can tickle your funny bone? In these #hgtvhappy clips, our Fixer Upper favorites will get your giggles going. My personal favorite is this classic Chip slapstick as he underestimates a newly discovered space in a reno and, against the advice of Jo, ends up in a hole:

Chip Falls in a Hole 00:24

Chip tries to prove Joanna wrong and finds himself in a hole.

You refer to the Gaines couple as JoJo and Chip when discussing the show, like they are your close friends.
-Facebook fan Mindy

Joanna Gaines, co-host of HGTV's Fixer Upper with her husband Chip (seen here also) loves the color green, but isn't a fan of purple.

You find yourself looking at old bikes, rusty signs and scrap wood and think..."Yeah, that would look good on my wall."
-Facebook fan Katherine

As seen on Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna have updated the dining room with a new redwood mantel, farm table, dark metal chandelier and black accents that offer a contrast against the white brick.

You make a big printed picture on wheels to reveal all surprises to your family.

Homeowners Jonathan and Amy Gulley cheer as Fixer Upper hosts Joanna and Chip Gaines pull back a large photographic banner of their home in its original state, to reveal the newly renovated home.

You want every room in you house painted gray.
-Facebook fan Natalie

With one wall removed, the old dining room was absorbed into the new kitchen, creating an open feel and making room for a long kitchen island. The old tile floors were replaced with wood flooring. New cabinets, appliances, marble countertops, tile backsplash, stainless fixtures and paint give the kitchen a modern look, yet the wooden vent hood and pendant light fixtures are complimentary to the Sanders' French Country style, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.

"If you want to buy the worst house on the best street so you can either hire them or say "Now, what would Chip & Joanna do???"
-Facebook fan Melissa F.

Before renovation, the landscaping was so overgrown that it obscured most of the house, so Chip and Joanna cleared out the unkempt trees and shrubs. Charmaine said, “It was a shame to see such a sturdy, well-built home going to waste.”

You do your best to recreate a design you saw. The chalkboard paint wall with reclaimed wood shelves and buffet? Did it!!!
-Facebook fan Maria M.

HGTV Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed this casual dining space into a family coffee bar – a place for family and friends to gather for eating and entertaining. Chalkboard paint on the wall creates a cafe-like atmosphere, while the floating shelves add a hint of rustic style.
