Midweek Mirth

One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is non-Christians think we don’t know how to have fun or have a sense of humor. Trust me, if the Big Guy can have a sense of humor when it comes to dealing with us mere mortals, so can we.

The difference for Christians is we don’t have to debase ourselves or others to generate a smile. Laughter at life or ourselves is a gift from God.

So, let’s smile a little!

The Divorce

A judge was interviewing a woman regarding her pending divorce. He asked, “What are the grounds for your divorce?”

She replied, “About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by.”

“No,” he said, “I mean what is the foundation of this case?”

“It is made of concrete, brick and mortar,” she responded.

“I mean,” he continued, “what are your relations like?”

“I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so do my husband’s parents.”

He said, “Do you have a real grudge?”

“No,” she replied, “we have a two-car carport and have never really needed one.”

“Please,” he tried again, “is there any infidelity in your marriage?”

“Yes, both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don’t necessarily like the music, but the answer to your question is yes.”

“Ma’am, does your husband ever beat you up?”

“Yes,” she responded, “about twice a week he gets up earlier than I do.”

Finally, in utter frustration, the judge asked, “Lady, why do you want a divorce?”

“Oh, I don’t want a divorce,” she replied. “I’ve never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He said he can’t communicate with me.”

And now for the bonus … just in time for back to school time

School Has Started …

Rushing to work, a teacher was driving too fast and as a result was pulled over by the highway patrol. The state trooper noticed her shirt had the name of a local high school on it. “I teach math there,” she explained.

The trooper smiled, and said, “Okay, here’s a problem. A teacher is speeding down the highway at 16 mph over the limit. At $12 for every mile, plus $40 court costs, plus the rise in her insurance, what’s her total cost?”

She replied, “Taking that total, subtracting the low salary I receive, multiplying by the number of kids who hate math, then adding to the fact none of us would be anywhere without teachers, I’d say zero.”

He handed her back her license. “Math was never my favorite subject,” he admitted. “Please slow down.”

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: We don’t laugh because we’re happy — we’re happy because we laugh. –William James
