Have A Laugh!

Adam & Eve

At Sunday School the children were learning how God created everything, including human beings. Little Josh was especially intent when the teacher told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs. Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down and looking scared. "Josh, what is the matter?" Josh whispered fearfully: "I have pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife."


Manner of speaking:

"Are your father and your mother in?" asked the vicar when the small boy opened the door.

"They was in," said the youngster. "But they is out."

"’They was in . They is out.’ Where’s your grammar, young man?"

"She’s gone upstairs, for a nap."




Sorry About This......

An exasperated minister parked his car in a No Parking area, with this message on the windscreen. "I have circled this car park 20 times. I have an appointment to keep - forgive us our trespasses." When he returned, he found this note: "I have circled this car park for ten years. If I don't give you a ticket, I'm not doing the job I'm paid to do - lead us not into temptation."



The little girl was anxiously watching the sunny sky for signs of rain. "Mum, didn't the weatherman on TV last night say there would be rain?"

"Yes dear", Mum replied.

"Well", the little girl sighed with relief. "Thank goodness God didn't hear him."



Mother In A Storm

One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mummy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug.

"I can't dear," she said, "I have to sleep with your daddy."

A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice: "The big coward."



Man in car showroom: "I've come back to buy that car you showed me yesterday."

Sales assistant: "That's fine, I thought you'd be back. Tell me, what was the dominant feature which made you decide on this car?"

Man: "My wife."



Farmer: "Isn't it wonderful how the little chicks get out of their shells?"

City visitor: "Indeed. But what gets me is how they get in there in the first place!"



When you mix children and religion:


~ In the first book of the Bible, Guinesses, God got tired of creating the world so he took the Sabbath off.


~ Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. Noah's wife was Joan of Ark because Noah built an ark. The animals came on in pears.


~ The Jews are a proud people and throughout history they've had trouble with unsympathetic genitals.


~ The Seventh Commandment is: Though shalt not admit adultery. Moses died before he ever reached Canada.




Professor: "What happens when the human body is immersed in warm water?"

Student: "The 'phone rings."



Teacher: "What is the difference between results and consequences?"

Bright pupil: "Results are what you expect, consequences are what you get."




Young son to father: "Dad, what is the middle class?"

Dad: "The middle class consists of people who are not poor enough to accept charity and not rich enough to donate anything."









One Liners

The man who fell into an upholstery machine was fully recovered.

When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.

A bike cannot stand alone; it is two tired.

A will is a dead giveaway.

Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.

If you don't pay your exorcist you can get repossessed.

A calendar's days are numbered.

A lot of money is tainted; 'taint yours and 'taint mine.

A boiled egg is hard to beat.

He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

When you've seen one shopping centre you've seen a mall.

If you jump off a Paris bridge you are in Seine.

What Do Bishops Do?

We were celebrating the 100th anniversary of our church, and several former vicars and the bishops were in attendance. At one point, our minister had the children gather at the altar for a talk about the importance of the day. He began by asking, "Does anyone know what the bishop does?" There was silence. Finally, one little boy ventured. "He's the one you can move diagonally."

A priest was speeding down a motorway when he was stopped by the police. The officer smelled alcohol on his breath, and then saw the empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.

"Sir," he demanded, "have you been drinking?"

"Just water," says the priest.

"Then why," said the officer, "do I smell wine?"

The priest thought rapidly. "Good Lord!" he cried. "He's done it again!"

An efficiency expert was delivering a seminar on time management for a company's junior executives. He concluded the session with a disclaimer: "But whatever you do, do NOT attempt these task-organising tips at home," he said.

"Why not?" He was asked.

"Well, I did a study of my wife's routine of fixing breakfast," He replied a little embarrassed. "I noticed she made a lot of trips between the refrigerator and the stove, the table and the cabinets, each time carrying only one item. So I told her: "Darling you are making too many trips back and forth carrying one item at a time. If you would only try carrying several things at once you would be more efficient." He paused.

"Did that save time?" one of the executives asked.

"Actually, yes," the expert answered, "it used to take her 20 minutes to fix my breakfast. Now I get my own in 7 minutes."

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 psalm, but little Charles did not find it easy to memorise much of anything. On the day that the children were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation , Charles stepped up to the microphone and began proudly. "The Lord is my shepherd... "He knew that much, but the rest of the Psalm suddenly deserted him. So he concluded bravely: "...and that's all I need to know."

Final Farewell.

An old clergyman man lay dying. He sent a message for his accountant and solicitor to come to the hospital. When they arrived they were ushered to his room. As they entered the room, the clergyman held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on either side of the bed. The minister grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled, and stared at the ceiling. For a time, nobody said anything. Both the accountant and solicitor were touched and flattered that the old man would ask them to be with him during his final moments. They were also puzzled as the minister had never given any indication that he particularly liked either of them. Finally the solicitor asked gently, "Why did you ask the two of us to come here?" The old minister mustered all his strength, then said weakly, "Well, Jesus died between two thieves, so that's how I want to go too"

A man was driving to work when a lorry ran a stop sign, hit his car broadside, and knocked him out cold. Passers-by pulled him from the wreck and revived him. He began a terrific struggle and had to be tranquillised by the medics. Later, when he was calm, they asked him why he struggled so. He said, "I remember the impact, then nothing. I woke up on a concrete slab in front of a huge flashing "SHELL" sign, and somebody was standing in front of the "S"."

A chemistry teacher wanted to teach his class a lesson about the evils of drink, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whisky, and two worms. "Now, class, closely observe the worms," said the teacher while putting a worm in the water. The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be. He then put the second worm into the whisky. It curled up and writhed about painfully, then quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail. "Now, what lesson can we learn from this experiment?" the teacher asked. One little boy responded promptly, "Drink whisky and you won't get worms".

Observations On Modern Life


* A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk I have a work station.


* A flashlight is a case for holding dead batteries.


* A good scapegoat is nearly as welcome as a solution to the problem.


* A gross ignoramus: 144 times worse than an ordinary ignoramus.


* A journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance.


* Did you hear about the dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac who stayed up all night trying to decide if there really is a dog?


* Why do they lock petrol station toilets? Afraid that someone will clean them!


* Why is it that when we talk to God we're said to be praying, but when God talks to us, we're said to be schizophrenic?

I asked my nephew whether he bought his wife anything for Valentine's Day. "Yes", he said, "I bought her a belt and a bag".

"That was very nice of you", I replied, "I hope she appreciated the thought".

He said, "So do I, and hopefully the vacuum cleaner will work better now".

The teacher asked her Sunday school class to draw pictures of their favourite bible stories. She was puzzled by Kate's picture, which showed four people on an aeroplane. She asked her which story it represented. "The flight to Egypt", was her reply. Pointing at each figure, the teacher ventured: "That must be Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. But, who's the fourth person?" 

"Oh", explained Kate happily, "that's Pontius - the pilot!"

That First Kiss...

At the end of their first date, a young man took the girl home. Emboldened by the night, he decided to try for that important first kiss. So with a put on air of confidence, he leaned casually against the wall and said, "well, how about a goodnight kiss?"

She gasped, "are you mad? My parents will see us!"

"Oh, come on! Who's gonna see us at this hour?"

"No, please. Can you imagine if we get caught?"

"Oh, come on, there's nobody around, they're all sleeping!"

"No way. I's just too risky!"

"Oh please, please, I like you so much!!"

"No, no, and no. I like you too, but I just can't!"

"Oh yes you can. Please?"

"NO, no. I just can't."


Out of the blue, the porch light suddenly went on. The door opened and the girl's sister stood there sleepily in her nightgown, her hair disheveled. Drowsily she said, "Daddy says please will you go ahead and give this guy a kiss. Or I can do it. Or if need be, he'll come down himself and do it. But for crying out loud, tell him to stop leaning on the intercom button!"

The minister had all his remaining teeth pulled out, and new dentures made. The first Sunday he only preached 10 minutes. The second Sunday he preached only 20 minutes. But, on the third Sunday he preached over an hour without even drawing breath. When asked about this by some of the congregation, he explained: "The first Sunday, my gums were so sore it hurt to talk. The second Sunday, my new dentures were working fine. The third Sunday, I accidentally grabbed my wife's dentures.....".

A couple were trying to sleep one night when a neighbour's dog started barking. This carried late on into the night until the husband cracked. "That's it, I've had enough!" and he rushed into the night. Ten minutes later he returned to bed, then after a couple of minutes the barking started up again. His wife turned to him and said: "So what did you do then?"

"I put the wretched dog in our garden, to see how they like it!"

There were two men shipwrecked on this island. The minute they got onto the island one of them started screaming and yelling, "We're going to die! We're going to die! There's no food! No water! We're going to die!" The second man was propped up against a palm tree and acting so calmly it droe the first man crazy. "Don't you understand? We're going to DIE!"

The second man replied, "You don't understand, I make £50000 a week". The first man looked at him quite dumbfounded and asked, "What difference does that make? We're on an island with no food and no water! We're going to DIE!!!"

The second man answered, "You just don't get it. I make £50000 a week and ~I tithe ten per cent to my parish church. My vicar will find me!"

On their way to get married, a Catholic couple were involved in a fatal car crash. They found themselves outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St Peter to process them into heaven. While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in heaven? When St Peter showed up, they asked him. St Peter said, "I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go and find out", and he left. The couple sat and waited. Two months passed, and the couple were still waiting. As they waited, they discussed that if they were allowed to get married in heaven, should they? "What if it doesn't work?" they wondered. "Are we stuck together forever?" Finally St Peter returned, looking somewhat ragged. "Yes", he informs the couple, you can get married in heaven". "Great!" said the couple, "but we were just wondering, what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in heaven?" St Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. "Oh, come on!" he shouted. "It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to find a solicitor?"
