I Love Laughter -Right Question

Right Question

A couple I know is pregnant with their fourth child. When they were
in getting an ultrasound, the nurse asked if they wanted to know what
the baby was. The father said they would, only if it was a girl.
The nurse replied, "One of them is."

I Love Laughter - Senior Discount

Senior Discount

Our minister announced that admission to a church social
event would be six dollars per person. "However, if you're
over 65," he said, " the price will be only $5.50."

From the back of the congregation, a woman's voice rang out,
"Do you really think I'd give you that information for
only 50 cents?"

I Love Laughter - ultimate church

A rich man went to his vicar and said, "I want you and your wife to take a three-month trip to the Holy Land at my expense. When you come back, I'll have a surprise for you". The vicar accepted the offer, and he and his wife went off to the Middle East.

Three months later they returned home and were met by the wealthy parishioner, who told them that while they were gone, he had had a new church built. "It's the finest building money can buy, vicar," said the man. "No expense was spared." And he was right. It was a magnificent edifice both outside and in.

But there was one striking difference. There was only one pew, and it was at the very back. "A church with only one pew?" asked the vicar.

"You just wait until Sunday," the rich man said.

When the time came for the Sunday service, the early arrivals entered the church, filed onto the one pew and sat down. When the pew was full, a switch clicked silently, a circuit closed, the gears meshed, a belt moved and, automatically, the rear pew began to move forward. When it reached the front of the church, it came to a stop. At the same time, another empty pew came up from below at the back and more people sat down. And so it continued, pews filling and moving forwards until finally the church was full, from front to back.

"Wonderful!" said the vicar, "Marvelous!"

The service began, and the vicar started to preach his sermon. He launched into his text and, when 12 o'clock came, he was still going strong, with no end in sight. Suddenly a bell rang, and a trap door in the floor behind the pulpit dropped open.

"Wonderful!" said the congregation, "Marvelous!"

I Love Laughter - Health Crisis

Health Crisis

Old Man Dean, a miser and womanizer of some renown in the community,
at last suffered a health crisis and was rushed to hospital late one

He lay unconscious through the night, but rallied at dawn and, by and
by, was well enough to receive visitors.

A local parson, hearing of Dean's misfortune and recalling that at
one time he had been a member of his congregation, determined to make
a call. After brief pleasantries were exchanged, the preacher began
an earnest appeal for the old boy to repent, mend his ways, and
return to the flock.

The minister explained how the patient should be thankful that he was
spared, and after some lengthy pleading for the old man to repent
inquired, "Did all of your sins flash before your eyes during the

"Don't be ridiculous," replied the defiant old man, "the attack
lasted only 6 hours!"

I Love Laughter - losers

A guy had been feeling down for so long that he finally decided to seek the aid of a psychiatrist.

He went there, lay on the couch, spilled his guts then waited for the profound wisdom of the psychiatrist to make him feel better.

The psychiatrist asked me a few questions, took some notes then sat thinking in silence for a few minutes with a puzzled look on his face.

Suddenly, he looked up with an _expression of delight and said, "Well, I think your problem is low self-esteem. It is very common among losers."

I Love Laughter - How Many?

How Many?

This is why we trail so many countries in math and geography. I was
sitting in a cafeteria recently, next to a woman who was engrossed in
her newspaper. One of the headlines blared: "12 Brazilian Soldiers
Killed." She shook her head at the sad news.

Then, turning to me, asked, "How many is a Brazilian?"

I Love Laughter - Stolen turkey

Ducking into confession with a turkey in his arms, Brian said, "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. I stole this turkey to feed my family. Would you take it and settle my guilt?"

"Certainly not," said the Priest. "As penance, you must return it to the one from whom you stole it."

"I tried," Brian sobbed, "but he refused. Oh, Father, what should I do?"

"If what you say is true, then it is all right for you to keep it for your family."

Thanking the Priest, Brian hurried off.

When confession was over, the Priest returned to his residence. When he walked into the kitchen, he found that someone had stolen his turkey.

I Love Laughter - attraction

A man was in his usual place in the morning, sitting at the table, reading the paper after breakfast.

He came across an article about a beautiful actress who was about to marry a football player. The player was known primarily for his lack of IQ, common sense, and good looks.

He turned to his wife: "You know, I'll never understand why the biggest, ugliest jerks always get the most attractive wives."

His wife replied, "Why thank you, dear!"

No Excuse

No Excuse

On the church newsletter were these instructions - Hold this paper
close to your nose and breath deeply. If the sheet turns green, you
need to see a doctor. If it turns blue see your dentist. If it turns red
see your bank manager. If it turns black, you need to check your will,
so see your lawyer immediately. If, however, it does not change color
then there is nothing wrong with you, and there is *no* reason why
you shouldn't be in church next week.
