Seeing the funny side of things

The Usher
An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. 
"Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely.
"The front row, please," she answered..
"You really don't want to do that," the usher said. "The pastor is really boring."
"Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired.
"No," he said.
"I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly.
"Do you know who I am?" he asked.
"No," she said.
"Good," he answered.

Show and Tell 
A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment.  Each student was instructed to bring in an object that represented their religion to share with the class.
The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David."
The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary."
The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Methodist, and this is a casserole."


The Best Way to Pray
A priest, a minister and a guru sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby
"Kneeling is definitely the best way to pray," the priest said.
"No," said the minister. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven."
"You're both wrong," the guru said. "The most effective prayer position is lying down on the floor."
The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas," he interrupted. "The best prayin' I ever did was when I was hangin' upside down from a telephone pole."

The Twenty and the One 
A well-worn one-dollar bill and a similarly distressed twenty-dollar bill arrived at a Federal Reserve Bank to be retired.
As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burned, they struck up a conversation. 
The twenty-dollar bill reminisced about its travels all over the country.
"I've had a pretty good life," the twenty proclaimed... "Why I've been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City , the finest restaurants in New York , performances on Broadway, and even a cruise to the Caribbean     ...."
"Wow!" said the one-dollar bill. "You've really had an exciting life!"
"So, tell me," says the twenty, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?"
The one dollar bill replies, "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church , the Presbyterian church, the Baptist Church , the Lutheran Church     .."
The twenty-dollar bill interrupts, "What's a church?"

She asked the class, "If you  saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?" A  thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence,   "I think I'd throw  up." ________________________________ DID  NOAH FISH? ATT00619 A Sunday  school teacher asked, "Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark?" "No," replied Johnny. "How could he, with just two worms." ________________________________ HIGHER  POWER ATT00622 A Sunday school teacher said to her children, "We  have been learning how powerful kings and queens  were in Bible times. But, there is a Higher Power. Can anybody tell me what it is?" One child  blurted out,   "Aces!" ________________________________ MOSES  AND THE RED SEA Nine-year-old Joey was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday School. "Well,  Mum, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea, he had his army build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely. Then he radioed headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge and all the Israelites were saved." "Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?" his Mother  asked. "Well, no, Mum, but, if told it the way the teacher did, you'd never believe  it!"    ________________________________ THE  LORD IS MY SHEPHERD ATT00625 A Sunday  School teacher decided to have her young class  memorise one of the most quoted passages in the Bible - Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter. Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was really nervous.  When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my  Shepherd, and that's all I need to  know." ________________________________ UNANSWERED  PRAYER ATT00628 The preacher's 5 year-old daughter noticed that her father always paused and bowed his head for a  moment before starting his sermon.

"How come He doesn't answer it?" she asked. ________________________________ BEING  THANKFUL A Rabbi said to a precocious  six-year-old boy, "So your mother says your prayers for you each night? That's very commendable.  What does she say?" The  little boy replied, "Thank God he's in  bed!" ________________________________ UNTIMELY  ANSWERED PRAYER During the minister's  prayer one Sunday, there was a loud whistle from one of the back pews. Tommy's mother was horrified. She pinched him into silence and, after church, asked,   "Tommy, whatever made you do such a thing?" Tommy answered soberly, "I asked God to teach me to whistle, and He did!" ________________________________ TIME  TO PRAY ATT00631 A pastor asked a little boy if he said his prayers every night.    "Yes,  sir." the boy replied. "And, do you always say them in the morning, too?" the pastor asked. "No sir," the boy replied. "I ain't scared in the  daytime"    ________________________________    SAY A  PRAYER 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!"

    Shirley & Marcy

    A mother was concerned about her kindergarten son walking to school. He didn't want his mother to walk with him. She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet know that he was safe.
    So she had an idea of how to handle it. She asked a neighbor if she would please follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn't notice her. She said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed.

    The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor girl he knew. She did this for the whole week.

    As the two kids walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy 's little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week. Finally she said to Timmy, 'Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week? Do you know her?'

    Timmy nonchalantly replied, 'Yeah, I know who she is.'

    The little girl said, 'Well, who is she?'

    'That's just Shirley Goodnest, 'Timmy replied, 'and her daughter Marcy.'

    'Shirley Goodnest? Who is she and why is she following us?

    'Well,' Timmy explained, 'every night my Mum makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, 'cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, ' Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all the days of my life', so I guess I'll just have to get used to it!'

    The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

    May Shirley Goodnest and Marcy be with you today and always

     The woman said, "Yes, they're using them now. They're very good."
     The bouncer said, "OK, come on in."
     The lady with the Chihuahu a thought that convincing him that a Chihuahua was a seeing-eye dog may be a bit more difficult, but thought, "What the heck," so she put on her dark glasses and started to walk in. 
     Once again the bouncer said, "Sorry, lady, no pets allowed."
     The woman said, "You don't understand. This is my seeing-eye dog" 
     The bouncer said, "A Chihuahua?"

    In Sunday School one morning Little Joey raised his hand and proceeded to
    ask a question that had perplexed him for some time.

Another week passed by and still the parrot refused to talk, by the time she got back to the pet shop, the parrot had died.
    "Oh dear" said the pet shop owner, " Did he have any last requests or words at all ?

    An older couple is lying in bed one morning.
    They had just awakened from a good night's sleep
    He takes her hand and she responds, 'Don't touch me.'
    'Why not?' he asked.
    She answered, 'Because I'm dead.'

    The husband asked...'What are you talking about? We're both lying here in bed together and talking to one another!'
    She said, 'No, I'm definitely dead.'
    He insisted, 'You are not dead. What in the world makes you think you're dead?'

    'Because I woke up this morning and nothing hurts.'

    A man was driving when a traffic camera flashed.
    He thought his picture was taken for exceeding the speed limit, even though he knew he was not speeding..
    Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed.
    He thought this was quite funny, so he slowed down even further as he drove past the area, but the traffic camera flashed yet again.
    He tried a fourth time with the same result.
    The fifth time he was laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past at a snail's pace.
    Two weeks later, he got five traffic fine letters in the mail for driving without a fastened seat belt.

    John was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place.   Looking up to heaven he said, 'Lord take pity on me.   If you find me a parking place I will go to church every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up all alcohol!'
    Miraculously, a parking place appeared.
    John looked up again and said, 'Never mind, I found one.'
    WHY, WHY, WHY?!?!

    Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are almost dead?
    Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they already know there is not enough money?
    Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but have to check when you say the paint is still wet?
    Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?
    Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?
    Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
    Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?
    If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?
    Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?
    Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?
    Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?
    Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?
    Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?
    How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?
    When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, 'It's all right?' Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, 'That really hurt, why don't you watch where you're going?'
    Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?
    In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?
    How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?
    And ......
    The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Weston's Mother looked out the window and noticed Him "playing church" with their cat.

    He had the cat sitting quietly and he was preaching to it.
    She smiled and went about her work.
    A while later she heard loud meowing and hissing and ran back To the open window to see Weston baptizing the cat in a tub of water.
    She called out, "Weston, stop that! the cat is afraid of water!"
    Weston looked up at her and said,
    "He should have thought about that before he joined my church."

    A father was approached by  his small son who told him proudly, "I know what
    the Bible means!"
    His father smiled and  replied, "What do you mean, you 'know' what the
    Bible means?
    The son replied, "I do  know!"
    "Okay," said his father. "What does the  Bible mean?"
    "That's easy, Daddy..." the young  boy replied excitedly," It stands for
    'Basic  Information Before Leaving Earth.'


    There was a very  gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible  to her
    brother in another part of the  country.
    "Is there anything breakable in here?"  asked the postal clerk.
    "Only the  Ten  Commandments. " answered the  lady.


    "Somebody has said  there are only two kinds of people in the world.  There
    are those who wake up in the morning and  say, "Good morning, Lord," and

    A minister parked  his car in a no-parking zone in a large city  because he
    was short of time and couldn't find a  space with a meter.
    Then he put a note under  the windshield wiper that read: "I have circled
    the block 10 times. If I don't park here, I'll  miss my appointment.
    Forgive us our  trespasses."
    When he returned, he found a  citation from a police officer along with this
    note "I've circled this block for 10 years. If I  don't give you a ticket
    I'll lose my job. Lead us  not into temptation."


    There  is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and  announced to his
    congregation: "I have good news  and bad news. The good news is, we have
    enough  money to pay for our new building program. The bad  news is, it's
    still out there in your  pockets."


    While driving in  Pennsylvania , a family  caught up to an Amish carriage.
    The owner of the  carriage obviously had a sense of humor, because  attached
    to the back of the carriage was a hand  printed sign... "Energy efficient
    vehicle: Runs on  oats and grass. Caution: Do not step in  exhaust."


    A Sunday School  teacher began her lesson with a question, "Boys  and girls,
    what do we know about God?"
    A hand  shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the  kindergarten boy.
    "Really? How do you know?"  the teacher asked.
    "You know - Our Father, who  does art in Heaven... "


    A  minister  waited in line to have his car filled  with gas just before a
    long holiday weekend. The  attendant worked quickly, but there were many
    cars  ahead of him. Finally, the attendant motioned him  toward a vacant
    "Reverend," said the  young man, "I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems  as
    if everyone waits until the last minute to get  ready for a long trip."
    The minister chuckled,  "I know what you mean. It's the same in my


    People want the  front of the bus, the back of the church, and the  centre
    of attention.


    Sunday  after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter  what the lesson
    was about.
    The daughter  answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your  quilt."
    Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed.  Later in the day, the pastor
    stopped by for tea  and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school
    lesson was  about.
    He said "Be not  afraid, thy comforter is  coming."


    The minister was  preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to  ask the
    congregation to come up with more money  than they were expecting for
    repairs to the church  building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that  the
    regular organist was sick and a substitute had  been brought in at the last
    minute. The substitute  wanted to know what to play.
    "Here's a copy of  the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll  have to
    think of something to play after I make  the announcement about the
    During  the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and  Sisters,
    we are in great difficulty; the  roof repairs cost twice as much as we
    expected and  we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge  $100 or more,
    please stand up."
    At that moment,  the substitute organist played "The Star  Spangled Banner."
    And that is how the  substitute became the regular  organist!
    A little girl asked her father, 'How did the human race appear?'

    The father answered, 'God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so was all mankind made.'

    Two days later the girl asked her mother the same question.
    The mother answered, 'Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.'

    The confused girl returned to her father and said, 'Dad, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Mom said they developed from monkeys?'

    The father answered, 'Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my
    side of the family and your mother told you about hers.'
