The Pastor — One Sunday morning,
a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for
church, to which he replied, “I’m not going.”  “Why
not?”, she asked.  “I’ll give you two good reasons,” he
said. “(1), they don’t like me, and (2), I don’t like them.” 
His mother replied, “I’ll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to
church:  (1) You’re 49 years old, and (2) you’re the

The Picnic — A Jewish Rabbi and
a Catholic Priest met at the town’s annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends,
they began their usual banter. “This baked ham is really
delicious,” the priest teased the rabbi. “You really ought to try
it.. I know it’s against your religion, but I can’t understand why such a
wonderful food should be forbidden! You don’t know what you’re missing.
You just haven’t lived until you’ve tried Mrs. Hall’s prized Virginia Baked
Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?” 
The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, “At your

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 Mormon, and this is a casserole.” 


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, fellahs,” he interrupted.
“The best praying’ I ever did was when I was hanging’ 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 MethodistChurch, the BaptistChurch, the LutheranChurch ..”   The twenty-dollar bill interrupts, “What’s a

Goat for Dinner — The
young couple invited their elderly pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in
the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were
having. “Goat,” the little boy replied. “Goat?”
replied the startled man of the cloth, “Are you sure about
that?”  “Yep,” said the youngster. “I heard Dad
say to Mom, ‘Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner.’

Short life-span?
— A man charged into a jewelry shop, slammed his fists angrily on the counter,
removed a wristwatch from his wrist, and shook it under the nose of the owner
of the shop. “When I bought this watch last week, you said it would last
me a lifetime!  The watch is broken
already!” he yelled. “That may be…” admitted the owner,
“…but you looked pretty sick the day you bought it.”

Paid in full! — A woman was getting swamped with calls from
strangers. The reason? A billing service had launched an 800 number that was
identical to hers. When she called to complain, she was told to get a new
number. “I’ve had mine for twenty years,” she pleaded.
“Couldn’t you change yours?”  The company refused, so she said,
“Fine. From now on, I’m going to tell everyone who calls that their bill
is paid in full.” The company got a new number the next day. 


Starry skies — Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping
trip, set up their tent, and fell asleep. Some hours later, Holmes woke up his
faithful friend. “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you
see.” Watson replied, “I see millions of
stars.” “What does that tell you?” Watson pondered for
a minute. “Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of
galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that
Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past
three. Theologically, it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small
and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful
day tomorrow. What does it tell you?” Holmes was silent for a
moment, then calmly said, “Watson, it tells me that someone has stolen our

In short, the
joke is…
— Our manager at the
restaurant where I worked was a friendly, jovial man. But there was one subject
you didn’t dare discuss in front of him–his height. Or, should I say, his lack
of it. One day he stormed through the door and announced angrily,
“Someone just picked my pocket!”   Most of my fellow waitresses and I were
speechless, except for one who blurted out, “How could anyone stoop so


Honest to a
— A very successful investment
counselor decided to start her own financial planning business. She was shrewd
and diligent, and her list of clients grew quickly.  She soon realized that she needed an in-house
counsel, so she began interviewing young lawyers. 
“As I’m
sure you can understand,” she started off with one of the first
applicants, “in a business like this, our personal integrity must be
beyond question.” She leaned forward. “Mr. Peterson, are you an HONEST
lawyer?”   “Honest?”
replied the job prospect. “Let me tell you something about honesty. Why,
I’m so honest that my father lent me fifteen thousand dollars for my education
and I paid back every penny the minute I tried my very first case.” 
“Impressive… And what sort of case was that?”   The lawyer squirmed in his seat and admitted,
“My father sued me for the money.” 


— A young woman went to her
doctor complaining of pain.  “Where
are you hurting?” asked the doctor. “You have to help me, I hurt all
over”, said the woman.  “What
do you mean, all over?” asked the doctor, “be a little more
specific.”   The woman touched her right knee with her
index finger and yelled, “Ouch! That hurts.”  Then she touched her left cheek and again
yelled, “Ouch! That hurts, too.” Then she touched her right earlobe,
“Ouch, even THAT hurts”, she cried.  The doctor checked her thoughtfully for a
moment and told her his diagnosis, “My friend, you have a broken


Night vision — Tiger
Woods & Stevie Wonder are in a bar. Tiger turns to Stevie and says,
“How’s the singing career going?”  Stevie replies, “Not too bad. How’s the
golf?”  Woods replies, “Not too
bad. I’ve had some problems with my swing, but I think I’ve got that fixed now.”
 Stevie says, “I always find that
when my swing goes wrong, I need to stop playing for a while and not think
about it. Then, the next time I play, it seems to be all right.”  Incredulous, Tiger says, “You play
GOLF?”  Stevie says, “Yes, I’ve
been playing for years.”  Tiger
says, “But — you’re blind! How can you play golf if you can’t see?”  Stevie Wonder replies, “Well, I get my
caddy to stand in the middle of the fairway and call to me. I listen for the
sound of his voice and play the ball towards him. Then, when I get to where the
ball lands, the caddy moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again
I play the ball towards his voice.” 
“But, how do you putt?” asks Tiger.  “Well”, says Stevie, “I get my
caddy to lean down in front of the hole and call to me with his head on the
ground and I just play the ball toward his voice.”  Tiger asks, “What’s your handicap?”  Stevie says, “Well, actually — I’m a
scratch golfer.”  Woods,
incredulous, says to Stevie, “We’ve got to play a round sometime.”  Stevie replies, “Well, people don’t take
me seriously, so I only play for money and never for less than $10,000 a hole.
Is that a problem?”

Woods thinks about it and says,
“I can afford that; OK, I’m game … $10,000 a hole is fine with me. When
would you like to play?”  Stevie
Wonder says, “Pick a night.”

Great quote:  While the Lord will magnify us in both subtle
and dramatic ways, he can only guide our footsteps when we move our feet.”  Marion G. Romney (Ensign, May 1981, page 91)


The explanation: Brains of older people are slow because they know so
much.  People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them
longer to recall facts because they have more information
in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the
hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access
information, it has been suggested.  Researchers
say this slowing down it is not the same as cognitive decline.  The
human brain works slower in old age, said Dr. Michael Ramscar, but only because
we have stored more information over time.  The brains of older people do not get weak. On
the contrary, they simply know more.  Also,
older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there,
they stand there wondering what they came for.  It is NOT a memory problem;
it is nature’s way of making older people do more exercise.
