Build That Wall
The new pastor decided to visit the children’s Sunday school. The teacher introduced him and said, “Pastor, this morning we’re studying Joshua.” “That’s wonderful,” said the new pastor, “let’s see what you’re learning. Who tore down the walls of Jericho?” Little Billy shyly raised his hand and offered, “Pastor, I didn’t do it.” Taken aback, the pastor asked, “Come on, now, who tore down the walls of Jericho?” The teacher, interrupting, said, “Pastor, Billy’s a good boy. If he says he didn’t do it, I believe he didn’t do it.” Flustered, the pastor went to the Sunday school director and related the story to him. The director, looking worried, explained, “Well, sir, we’ve had some problems with Billy before. Let me talk to him and see what we can do.” Really bothered now by the answers of the teacher and the director, the new pastor approached the deacons and related the whole story, including the responses of the teacher and the director. A white-haired gentleman thoughtfully stroked his chin and said, “Well, Pastor, I move we just take the money from the general fund to pay for the walls and leave it at that.”
DWI – Driving Without Intelligence
I pulled into the gas station to get a drink. When I walked up I noticed these two cops watching a woman who was smoking while pumping gas. I saw her and thought, “Is she stupid?!! With the cops right there too?!” But anyway, I went in and got my drink. As I was checking out, I heard someone screaming. I looked outside and the woman’s arm was on fire! She was swinging her arm and running around going crazy! I ran outside and the cops had put her on the ground and were putting the fire out with their coffees. Then they put handcuffs on her and threw her in the police car. I was thinking, “She shouldn’t have been smoking near the pump while getting gas!” But being the nosey person that I am, I asked the cops what they were arresting her for. The cop looked me dead in my eyes and said…
“WAVING A FIREARM.”
Graduation Cheat Notes
When my son graduated from high school, he had to give a speech. He began by reading from his prepared text:
“I want to talk about my mother and the wonderful influence she has had on my life. She is a shining example of parenthood, and I love her more than words could ever do justice.” At this point he seemed to struggle for words. After a pause, he looked up with a sly grin and said, “Sorry, but it’s really hard to read my mother’s handwriting.”
An 8-year-old girl went to her dad, who was working in the yard. She asked him, “Daddy, what is sex?”
He was surprised by the question, but decided that if she was old enough to ask, then she was old enough to get a straight answer. He proceeded to tell her all about the birds and the bees. When he finished, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open. Her father asked her, “Why did you ask this question?”
The little girl replied, “Mommy told me to tell you that dinner would be ready in just a couple of secs.”
