Be Ye Thankful
Child at dinner table: “Are caterpillars good to eat?”
Parent: “No. Why would you ask a question like that?”
Child: “Well, there was one in your salad, but it’s gone now.”
The Pain of a Wife
At Sunday School they were teaching how God created everything, including human beings.
Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs.
Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and she said, “Johnny, what is the matter? “Little Johnny responded, “I have pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.”
A Farmers Dream
The school of agriculture’s dean of admissions was interviewing a prospective student,
“Why have you chosen this career?” he asked. “I dream of making a million dollars in farming, like my father,” the student replied. “Your father made a million dollars in farming?” echoed the dean, much impressed. “No,” replied the applicant. “But he always dreamed of it.”
God and Squirrels
A small town had three churches — and all three were virtually overrun with pesky squirrels.
The first church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined that God must have wanted the squirrels there, and the church shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will. The second church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creations, so they humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back. The third church came up with the best and most effective solution: they baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas and Easter.
You Asked for It!
You name it, we’ll make it! Was the big sign outside the new restaurant on 13th Ave. There is no food we can’t make for you! Excuse me sir, said a man with a heavy Russian accent to the waiter, I vould like please, A Garden Salad with Russian dressing. RUSSIAN DRESSING?!” Screamed the head cook, I’VE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF RUSSIAN DRESSING! WHAT ARE WE GOING TO GIVE THIS GUY?”
Don’t worry, said the owner to the cook, Ill take care of everything, you just make the salad. Two minutes later the waiter walked out with a big Garden Salad and a picture of a Russian man putting on his pants.
Please Bless this Food
Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at his Grandmother’s house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When Little Johnny received his plate, he started eating right away. “Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer,” said his mother. “I don’t need to,” the boy replied.
“Of course, you do,” his mother insisted. “We always say a prayer before eating at our house.” “That’s at our house.” Johnny explained. “But this is Grandma’s house and she knows how to cook.”
The Well Behaved Class
A school teacher injured his back and had to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. It fit under his shirt and was not noticeable at all. On the first day of school, still with the cast under his shirt, he found himself assigned the toughest students in school. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the window as wide as possible and then busied himself with desk work. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he took the desk stapler and stapled the tie to his chest. He had NO trouble with discipline that term!
On my way to School…
In the traffic court of a large city, a young lady was brought before the judge to answer for a ticket given her for driving through a red light. She explained to the judge that she was a schoolteacher and requested an immediate dismissal of her case so she could get to the school on time. A wild gleam came into the judge’s eye. You’re a schoolteacher, hum? he said. Ma’am, today I shall realize my lifelong ambition. I’ve waited years to have a schoolteacher in this court. Sit down at the table and write ‘I went through a red light’ 500 times!”
Another victim of circumstance…
Two airheads in California are sitting outside on a cool, clear evening, looking at the moon and talking.
One asks: “Which do you think is farther away … Florida or the moon?” The other replies (with eye-roll): “Hellooooooooooo! Can you see … Florida from here??”
Can you hear me now?
Moe: “I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it’s state of the art. It’s perfect!”
Joe: “Really? What kind is it?” Moe: “Twelve-thirty.”
Thought For the Day:
I don’t have a problem with caffeine. I have a problem without it. In a store: Unattended children will be given espresso and a free kitten. At the rate things are changing, anyone nostalgic for the “good old days” is yearning for last week. An optimist thinks this is the best of all worlds. A pessimist fears this may be true. Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting. Some folks call their banks to get their balance. I just shake mine.
