My very sick Friend Pete Wicks sends me the funniest jokes!! This one I could not resist posting!!
A priest, a Pentecostal preacher and a Rabbi all served as chaplains to the
students of Northern Michigan University in Marquette.
They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk
One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't really
all that hard. A real challenge would be to preach to a bear and convert it to
One thing led to another and they decided to do an experiment . They would
all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to convert it.
Seven days later, they're all together to discuss their experiences.
Father Flannery, who has his arm in a sling, is on crutches, and has
various bandages, goes first.
"Well," he says, "I went into the woods to find me a bear. And when I
found him I began to read to him from the Catechism. Well, that bear wanted nothing to
do with me and began to slap me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water,
sprinkled him and, Holy Mary Mother of God, he became as gentle a lamb. The bishop
is coming out next week to give him first communion and confirmation."
Reverend Billy Bob spoke next. He was in a wheelchair, with an arm and
both legs in casts, and had an IV drip. In his best fire and brimstone oratory he
claimed, " WELL brothers, you KNOW that we don't sprinkle! I went out and I FOUND me a
bear. And then I began to read to my bear from God's HOLY WORD! But that bear wanted
nothing to do with me. So I took HOLD of him and we began to wrestle. We wrestled
down one hill, UP another and DOWN another until we came to a creek. So I
quick DUNKED him and BAPTIZED his hairy soul. And just like you said, he became
as gentle as a lamb. We spent the rest of the day praising Jesus."
They both looked down at the rabbi, who was lying in a hospital bed. He
was in a body cast and traction with IV's and monitors running in and out of him. He was
in bad shape. The rabbi looks up and says, "Looking back on it, circumcision may not
have been the best way to start."
My SIL Sherry came over to get her fix on working in the garden, and has my front yard looking better than I have ever seen it! bLESS HER HEART. She said she did not want to make me feel bad, but her yard did not need any work, and she wanted to get dirty!! Man can I help her out there.
Bob came over and helped me get the carpet out of my bedroom, so that is now done.
I got all the washing done, and the last load in the dryer.
Got all three Lobby posters finished for STEEL MAGNOLIAS< POLLYANNA and CAINE MUTINY, so tomorrow I will go in and get them up and then I will have NOTHING left at the playhouse! WAHHHH!! I needed the break, but I will be ready to get back into it soon.
Service Master was back out again today to set up the dehumidifier and 4 more fans to try and dry out the floors. He crawled under the house, and all the puddles have dried up, so it is just the subflooring that is still damp. He will be back on tuesday to recheck. Man I will be glad when this mess is DONE!!
Hey Leslie, How 'Bout them Oilers? I watched most of the game, but got busy and missed the end, and guess I shoulda watched it huh?
