dead grandmother joke

A man knew that his grandmother was rich and about to die. He went to visit her and help her in any way that he could. She told him that she had half a million dollars hidden underneath the floorboards in the kitchen. She wanted him to have it because he was the only one that cared enough about her to come and take care of her.

After the grandmother’s funeral the man retrieved the money and dug a hole in his backyard to bury it. The next day he went out to check on the buried treasure. All he found was an empty hole. As he inspected the area, he saw footprints from the hole leading to the house next door, which was owned by a deaf-mute.

Down the street lived a woman named Sally who had a deaf brother, so she understood sign language, so the man hurried to her house and brought her to the deaf-mute to interrogate him. He brought his hand gun hidden under his coat.

He screamed at Sally, “Tell this deaf-mute that I know he stole my money and that if he doesn’t give it back I will kill him!”

Sally signed the message to the deaf mute, who replied in sign language “I hid it in the cupboards in the basement.”

Sally then turned to the man with the gun and said “He says he will never tell you where the money is, even if you kill him.”

After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Walmart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women – she loves to browse.

Dear Mrs. Woolf,

Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Woolf, are listed below and are “documented by our video surveillance cameras”:

1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they weren’t looking.

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-
minute intervals.

3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the
women’s restroom.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official
voice, ‘Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away’. This caused the
employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted in management getting involved causing management to lose time and costing the company money.

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to reserve a bag of
chips.

6. August 14: Moved a ‘CAUTION – WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.

7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the
children shoppers they could come in if they would bring pillows and
blankets from the bedding department – to which twenty children
obliged.

8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began
crying and screamed, ‘Why can’t you people just leave me alone?’
Emergency Medics were called.

9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

10. September 10: While handling guns in the Sports department, he
asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

11. October 3: Darted around the Store suspiciously while loudly
humming the ‘ Mission Impossible’ theme.

12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his ‘Madonna look’ by using different sizes of funnels.

13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed
through, yelled ‘PICK ME! PICK ME!’

14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed the fetal position and screamed ‘OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!

15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where the fitting room was.

And last, but not least:

16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited
awhile, and then yelled very loudly, ‘Hey! There’s no toilet paper in
here.’ One of the Staff passed out.

I wonder if I’ll have to go along on many more shopping trips?

734538_424972How do you see yourself? If you see yourself as a winner, as capable and able, you tend to accomplish much more in life, do better at your job and relationships. I heard a PhD give a speech in which he said that bad self-image was the cause of almost all divorces. At first I did not believe it, but the more I ponder it, the more I believe it may be true. Leave a comment, what do you think about this? Have you seen instances in which a bad self-image caused problems?

There were areas in my life in which I used to feel incompetent. After I picked myself off and dusted off my poor attitude in those areas, I did much better and was much happier.

This is a pic of me taken with a distortion app. It’s a bad self image. I laughed out loud the first time I saw it.

A really bad day–humor

Brad Stanton —  February 26, 2013 — 5 Comments

There was this guy at a bar, just looking at his drink. He stays like that for half of an hour.

Truck Drivers only!

Then, this big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, and just drinks it all down. The poor man starts crying. The truck driver says, “Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I’ll buy you another drink. I just can’t stand to see a man cry.”

“No, it’s not that. This day is the worst of my life. First, I fall asleep, and I go late to my office. My boss, outrageous, fires me. When I leave the building, to my car, I found out it was stolen. The police said that they can do nothing. I get a cab to return home, and when I leave it, I remember I left my wallet and credit cards there. The cab driver just drives away.”

“I go home, and when I get there, I find my wife in bed with the gardener. I leave home, and come to this bar. And just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison.”

It is said that some of the top leaders of England were at a party with Oliver Cromwell, trying their best to make friends with him in order to win favors. One man apparently had a habit of talking before thinking and saw a homely young lady enter the party with a man.

“Who is that unsightly creature with Lord Smith?” the man asked Cromwell.

Cromwell winced and said “That sir, is my daughter.”

Trying hastily to overcome his mistake the man said “No, no I mean that shocking monster on the other side of him.”

“That, sir, is my wife.”

I don’t know if that story is true or just a joke, but the following is true and I thought it was very interesting because it is the account of a man who rose from obscurity to a very high position.

Oliver Cromwell (1599 – 1658) was an English military and political leader and later Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland. Born into the middle gentry, he was relatively obscure for the first 40 years of his life. After undergoing a religious conversion in the 1630s, Cromwell became an intensely religious man and he fervently believed that God was guiding his victories.

He was elected Member of Parliament and later entered the English Civil War. Nicknamed “Old Ironsides”, he was quickly promoted from leading a single cavalry troop to become one of the principal commanders of the New Model Army. (From Wikipedia)

He later became head of state of England, Scotland and Ireland and changed the course of history. It just goes to show you that your luck can change at any time, and you may be propelled into a wonderful life.

Dog jokes

Brad Stanton —  January 30, 2013 — 4 Comments

A dog with no name

A man was passing through a small town and decided to stop for a soft drink. He parked and got out of his car. In front of the store was a boy, about 8 or 10 years old and a dog. The man was impressed by the dog and asked

“Son, does your dog bite?”

“No, my dog doesn’t bite, mister.” the boy said.

The man reached down to pet the dog and suddenly the dog lunged and bit his hand.

“I thought you said your dog doesn’t bite!” the man cried out.

“That’s not my dog” the boy answered.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It was summertime and a man walked past several boys with a dog. “What are you boys doing?” he asked.

“We are competing to see who wins this dog as a prize. Whoever tells the biggest lie gets to keep the dog.” One of the boys said.

The man was shocked at the morals of these young boys, competing to see who could tell the biggest lie. He decided he would do his good deed for the day and encourage them to find a more honest way to compete for the dog.

“Boys, it’s not a good idea to tell lies. Why, when I was a boy I became a Christian at an early age and I didn’t tell lies after that. In fact, I was so blessed by the Lord that I became a preacher.” He talked and talked, going on and on about how bad it is to lie and how he didn’t do that kind of thing. Eventually he paused to see if he had any effect on the boys. They were staring at him with strange expressions on their faces.

“OK, give him the dog. None of us can tell that big of a lie!” one of the boys said.

Shepherd humour

Brad Stanton —  December 10, 2012 — 13 Comments

English: Shepherd dog, sheep, Dolenja vas near...

A shepherd was bringing his large flock of sheep down a dusty road when a man in a Ferrari drove up and stopped. He got out of his car wearing an expensive Armani suit and had a laptop computer in his hand.

He said, “What a wonderful flock of sheep you have here, I’ll make a deal with you. If I can tell you how many sheep you have in your flock in less than a minute, you give me one sheep. How about it?”

The shepherd agreed.

The man scanned the flock with his computer cam and began typing on the laptop. In less than 45 seconds he shouted “You have 1253 sheep!”

“Yes, exactly!” said the shepherd. “You can have a sheep.”

The shepherd watched the rich man carry an animal to his car.

“Wait a minute” said the shepherd, “I’ll make a deal with you. If I can tell you what kind of work you do for a living, you give me back my animal, OK?”

“It’s a deal” said the rich man.

“You are an IT consultant” said the shepherd.

“Wow, that’s right, how did you know?” asked the IT man.

“Three reasons” said the shepherd. “One, you came and asked for work without me calling you. Two, I had to pay you to tell me something I already knew, and three you don’t understand my business at all. I don’t think you know the first thing about shepherding. Now give me back my dog!”

 

Money humor

A man knew that his grandmother was rich and about to die. He went to visit her and help her in any way that he could. She told him that she had half a million dollars hidden underneath the floorboards in the kitchen. She wanted him to have it because he was the only one that cared enough about her to come and take care of her.

After the grandmother’s funeral the man retrieved the money and dug a hole in his backyard to bury it. The next day he went out to check on the buried treasure. All he found was an empty hole. As he inspected the area, he saw footprints from the hole leading to the house next door, which was owned by a deaf-mute.

Down the street lived a woman who had a deaf son, so she understood sign language, so the man hurried to her house and brought her to the deaf-mute to interrogate him. He brought his hand gun hidden under his coat.

He screamed at the woman, “Tell this deaf-mute that I know he stole my money and that if he doesn’t give it back I will kill him!”

The lady signed the message to the deaf mute, who replied in sign language “I hid it in the cupboards in the basement.”

The interpreter then turned to the man with the gun and said “He says he will never tell you where the money is, even if you kill him.”

Another mule joke

a mule

An old farmer had an old mule. The mule was very old and very sick, in fact the veterinarian told the old farmer the best thing to do would be to put the poor animal down and said he could do it painlessly. But the old farmer just couldn’t bear to lose the old faithful mule.

A few days later when the pastor called the old farmer, he told the pastor all about the old mule. After hearing the story the pastor kindly asked if the old farmer would like him to shoot the mule to put it out of its misery.

“Yes, pastor, that would be mighty fine of you, I just can’t bring myself to do it.”

That day Billy Bob came to talk to the pastor. The pastor said “I’d love to chat with you but I have an errand that I need to attend to, want to come along with me?”

“Sure, I’ll come” said Billy Bob.

As they drove to the old farmers house the thought crossed the pastor’s mind that he could have a lot of fun with this. He decided to make up a fib and see if Billy Bob would believe it.

“Billy Bob, I’m so mad at that old farmer I just don’t know what to do. Every time I think of him I get madder. I’m to the point now that if I wasn’t a pastor, I’d be thinking about killing him. Maybe I’ll just kill his mule, instead.”

They arrived at the house and the pastor pulled out his rifle and strode angrily to the back of the barn where the old mule was. Billy Bob heard a shot and saw the pastor walking back to the truck with a smoking gun. Billy Bob’s eyes widened, but he didn’t say anything.

“I’m going right up to that old man’s house and tell him what I did” said the pastor.

He put the rifle back in the truck. After the pastor finished talking to the old farmer he walked back to the truck and was surprised to hear four gunshots. Suddenly Billy Bob came running around the corner with the rifle.

“I got him good, pastor, I just shot three of his chickens and one of his cows, let’s get out of here!”

These pictures show some of the hardware which...

Farmer Joe decided his injuries from his recent accident were serious enough to take the trucking company responsible for the accident to court. In court, the trucking company’s fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe.

“Didn’t you say, at the scene of the accident, that you were fine?”

”Well, I’ll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule Bessie into the–” ”I didn’t ask for any details,” the lawyer interrupted. ”Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, that you were fine?”

”Well I had just got Bessie into the trailer and was driving down the road–”

”Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.” By this time the Judge was fairly interested in Farmer Joe’s answer and told the lawyer so.

”Well,” said the farmer, “as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into the trailer and was driving her down the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my truck right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was hurting real bad and didn’t want to move. However, I could hear ol’ Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after the accident a Highway Patrolman came on the scene. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes. Then the Patrolman came across the road with his gun in his hand and looked at me. He said, ‘Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her. How are you feeling?

That was just a joke, but most people would say they are feeling pretty good at that point, wouldn’t they? And when they thought about the alternative, they probably would be happy.

Graveyard humor

Кабак

A drunk man left a bar and decided to take a shortcut through a graveyard. It was raining heavily and rather dark, with only a half moon in the sky above, it cast eerie shadows across the tombstones, giving the drunk man the creeps. He didn’t see an open grave in front of him and fell into it. He tried to climb out but the rain made the sides of the hole too slippery to climb. Finally he decided to give up and spend the night there and try again in daylight after he sobered up.

A while later, another drunk left the same bar and took the same shortcut through the graveyard. He too felt scared by the creepy shadows moving over the tombstones and the eerie atmosphere of the graveyard. He, too fell into the open grave. The first drunk was still there and watched him try to climb out only to fall back down into the slippery, muddy hole. Finally the second drunk got tired and sat down to rest. The first drunk said in his scariest voice, “yessss, just sit and ressst, you’ll never get out.”

But he did!

A blind man visits Texas

A blind man went to Texas and stopped at a restaurant. He sat down and said to the waitress “Wow, what big chairs these are!”
“Everything is big in Texas” the waitress replied.

After dinner he went down the street to a bar. The bartender put a large mug of beer in front of him and he said “Wow, what big mugs these are!”

“Everything is big in Texas” the lady bartender said.
After drinking some beers the man asked where the bathroom was.

“Second door to the right down that hall” the bartender replied.

The blind man started heading down the hall and found the first door and went past but didn’t feel the second door with his cane. He proceeded to walk a little farther to a third door. it was actually the door to the swimming pool. He opened the door thinking it was the second door with the restroom and walked forward, only to fall into the pool.

Scared to death the blind man started shouting “Don’t flush! Don’t flush!”

Blind man here to see you

At a convent the mother superior was taking a shower. A nun came into the bathroom and said “There is a blind man here to see you.” The mother superior said “Well if it is a blind man it won’t matter if I am in the shower. Send him in.”

The blind man walked into the bathroom and the mother superior began to tell him how much they appreciated him. She talked on and on and after about ten minutes the man interrupted and said “Wow, this is really nice of you, in fact this is the best treatment I have ever been given since I started selling these blinds, but where should I put them?”

OK, was this last joke a little too much? Leave a comment.


Rita and John's Marriage Certificate

crochetA man and woman had been married for more than 65 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.

For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside.She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents. “When we were to be married,” she said, “my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”

The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.

“Honey,” he said, “that explains the dolls, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”
“Oh,” she said, “that’s the money I made from selling the dolls for one dollar each.”

A little humor (humour)

Brad Stanton —  August 19, 2012 — 20 Comments

A man died and left his wife $20,000. After the funeral she told a friend that she was broke.

“You’re broke?!” The friend asked. “I thought your husband left you a lot of money.”

“He did, but I spent $5000 on the funeral and $15,000 on a memorial stone.”

“That must have been a really big memorial stone” the woman said. “How big was it?”

The widow lifted up her left hand to show the woman and said “Oh, about three carats.”

Later the widow was in a car accident and the doctors thought she was dead. They used everything they could and soon her heart started beating again. The woman prayed to God and said “Oh thank you so much for letting me live. By the way, how much longer are you going to let me stay alive down here?”

God told her she had 40 more years to live.

She was so happy that she decided to stay at the hospital and get a face lift, a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. Soon she was able to leave the hospital.

Then one day about a month later she was hit by a car and died. As her spirit was being taken to heaven she asked God, “Hey, I thought you said I had forty more years down here, What happened?”

God said, “Oh, sorry, I didn’t recognize you.”

Disclaimer: these are just a little humor and certainly not doctrinally correct. I know some of you are thinking, yep, very little humor. Oh well, you get what you pay for and this was free.


Rodney Dangerfield jokes…

With my wife I don’t get no respect. I made a toast to her in a fancy joint on her birthday to ‘the best woman a man ever had.’ The waiter joined me.

What a childhood I had, why, when I took my first step, my dad tripped me! 

Last week I told my psychiatrist, “I keep thinking about suicide.” He told me from now on I would have to pay in advance.  

I tell you when I was a kid, all I knew was rejection. My yo-yo…. it never did come back!

When I was a kid I got no respect.  I was kidnapped, and the kidnappers sent my parents a note they said, “Give us five thousand dollars or you’ll see your kid again.”

I am telling ya, my wife was never nice. On our first date, I asked her if I could give her a goodnight kiss on the cheek – she bent over!

I tell you, with my doctor, I don’t get no respect. I told him, “I’ve swallowed a bottle of sleeping pills.” He told me to go have a few drinks and get some rest.

Some dog I got too. We call him Egypt because he leaves a pyramid in every room in the house.

With my dog I don’t get no respect. He keeps barking at the front door. He don’t want to go out. He wants me to leave.  

I saw my psychiatrist and told him, “Doctor, I keep thinking I’m a dog.” He told me to get off his couch.

I worked in a pet store and the customers kept asking how big I’d get.

My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.

One night I came home. I figured, let my wife come on. I’ll play it cool and let her make the first move. She went to Florida.

I asked my old man if I could go ice-skating on the lake. He told me, “Wait til it gets warmer.”

My doctor told me to watch my drinking. Now I drink in front of a mirror. I drink too much. Way too much. My doctor drew blood. He ran a tab.

When I was born the doctor came out to the waiting room and said to my father, “I’m very sorry. We did everything we could…but he pulled through.”

I come from a slow family. During the Civil War my great uncle fought for the west!

My father was not too bright. He worked in a bank and they caught him stealing pens.

My mother had morning sickness… after I was born.

My father carries around the picture of the kid that came with his wallet.

When I played in the sandbox the cat kept covering me up.

I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

One year they wanted to make me poster boy… for birth control.

I remember the time I was kidnapped and they sent back a piece of my finger to my father. He said he wanted more proof.

Kindergarten humor

It was the last day of kindergarten and all the kids in class brought presents to give their teacher.

A little boy whose father owned a flower shop handed the teacher a gift. She looked at the shape of the package and said “I bet it’s flowers from your fathers shop!”

“You are right! Exclaimed the little boy.

A little girl came up with a square box neatly wrapped; she was the candy shop owner’s daughter. The teacher shook the box and asked “Is it a box of candy?”

“Yes, it is!” shouted the girl.

Next the liquor store owner’s son came forward with a colorfully wrapped box that was leaking. The teacher placed her finger on the dripping corner and tasted it.

“Could it be wine?” she queried

“No,” said the boy. The teacher held the box up and licked the dripping corner.

“Champagne?” she asked.

“No,” the boy answered. It’s even better than that. It’s a puppy!”

Harry Butz humor

Brad Stanton —  July 12, 2012 — 8 Comments

Chellaston Methodist Church

Harry Butz was a member of his Baptist church for so long no one wondered how his parents could name him that, they just sort of forgot about it. But when the Methodist church down the street met together with the Baptists for a celebration, the Baptist pastor forgot that he should explain things before he said from the pulpit to two ladies in the crowded church “Would the two ladies with Harry Butz come forward to the front, please?”

The two ladies looked extremely embarrassed and didn’t have the nerve to walk forward. After a bit of laughter from the crowd the preacher realized his mistake.


A blind lady named Sue was flying across country and the airplane landed in Dallas for a short layover. Sue flew often and the captain knew her name. He wanted to stretch his legs a bit so he approached her and asked “Sue do you want to leave the airplane and walk around for a bit?”

“No” said Sue, “but would you mind walking my seeing-eye dog for a few minutes?”

“Sure” he said. It was rather sunny from the large windows in the airport waiting room so he put on his sunglasses.

You can imagine the shocked looks on the people waiting for the plane when they saw the airline captain walking off the airplane wearing sunglasses with a seeing-eye dog.

A doctor was examining a little boy and trying to prevent him from getting scared, so when he used a tongue depressor to look down the boy’s throat he said “Hey maybe we can find Barney down there.”

The little boy replied back, “No, Jesus is in my heart, Barney is on my underwear.”

We are told from a very young age that if we are a Christian, Jesus lives in our hearts. We take it for granted and don’t really have any idea of the ramifications of it. But if you stop and think about it, it means that the Holy Spirit is woven together with your spirit like two different kinds of threads woven together to make one fabric.

You actually have the king of the universe living inside you! That means you have incredible power. It is safe to say that no Christian in the last thousand years has fully utilized the power of the Holy Spirit. Think about the things Elijah could do, he could split the waters apart so that people could cross, similar to Moses. He called down fire from heaven to burn up evil priests and prayed for drought. He didn’t die, but went up to heaven in a chariot of fire.

James 1:17 Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.

James tells us that Elijah was a human, just like we are. He couldn’t do anything that we can’t do. Hard to believe, but it’s true. In John 14:12 Jesus said anyone who had faith in him would do even greater things that he did.

If you were the child of the president of the United States, you would have some advantages and opportunities others don’t. If you were the child of a very wealthy king, you would have even more advantages. If you are a child of the King of Kings, you have incredible advantages, but you aren’t using them, because you are limited by your lack of faith.


A Guide for the Married Man

from an email: NICKNAMES If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah. If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman.
EATING OUT When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it’s only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.
MONEY A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn’t need but it’s on sale.
BATHROOMS A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel. The average number of items in the typical woman’s bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.
ARGUMENTS A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
FUTURE A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
MARRIAGE A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn’t. A man marries a woman expecting that she won’t change, but she does.
DRESSING UP A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail. A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
NATURAL Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
OFFSPRING Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY A married man should forget his mistakes. There’s no use in two people remembering the same thing!
SO, send this to the women who have a sense of humor and who can handle it …. and to the men who will enjoy reading it


My daughter's lips have nothing to do with this story, but they are just so cute, I had to add them here.

An elderly lady walked out of a grocery store with two bags of food. As she approached her car, she notice there were four tough looking young thugs in it. She was shocked. But she had lived in a tough part of town for too long to be bullied by these young punks. She dropped both bags of groceries right where she stood and pulled a hand gun out of her purse, pointed it at the thug in the drivers seat and shouted “Get out, I’ve got a gun and I’m not afraid to use it!”
The men’s jaws dropped for a moment, then they hurriedly jumped out of the car and dashed away. The old lady picked up her groceries and got into the car, found her key and put it into the ignition. To her surprise, it didn’t fit! Her car was parked farther down the row. She quickly got out of the car and brought her things to her own car, drove to the police station and reported to the sergeant what had happened.
As she stood explaining to him, he began to laugh so hard that she had to stop talking. She looked across and saw the four young men who were reporting their car stolen.

The Sunday school teacher was having lots of problems with the Smith twins. They were always in trouble. When she turned to write on the chalkboard, one would throw a paper wad or poke someone else in the back while the other was doing similar things. Finally she decided to put the fear of God in them and took one of them to the pastor’s office for a chat.

The pastor, assuming that the teacher had taught them that good boys accept God and he lives in their hearts, asked the boy where God was. The boy sat and thought for awhile, trying to remember anything the teacher had talked about that might give him a clue as to how to answer. The pastor asked again, and then again a third time. Each time the boy got a little more nervous. Finally the boy could take it no more and ran back to the classroom to find his twin.

“We’ve got to get out of here” he blurted out. “God is missing and they suspect us!”
