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.

It’s time for some Midweek Mirth so let’s smile a little!

Hardly Worth It

A guy decides to bring his new girlfriend to a football game. After the game is over, he asks her if she liked the game. She replies: “Oh it was great, but there is one thing I don’t understand.”

“What don’t you understand?”

The girlfriend replies, “Well, at the beginning of the game, both teams flipped a quarter to see who would kick off first. Then the rest of the game everybody was yelling get the quarter back, get the quarter back, get the quarter back. So I thought to myself, gosh it’s just a quarter …!”

And now for the bonus …

Just A Thought …

It is hard to understand how a cemetery raises its burial rates — and blames it on the cost of “living”.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: [Humanity] has unquestionably one really effective weapon — laughter. Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution — these can lift at a colossal humbug — push it a little — weaken it a little, century by century, but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand. — Mark Twain

    while diligently working in my office, I glanced and saw the Mid-week mirth, my fav! I laughed so hard about the football game, I had to get up, walk downstairs and share this with my husband!! thanks for the smile today! Oh by the way, we work from home.


  2. I never take life serious,
    I use humour, and it works,
    though it makes some furious
    to grab their torches and pitchforks
    and they’ll chase me down the street,
    where more supporters they will find
    to catch and burn and stab and beat
    a giddy laughing Frankenstein.
    Cornered, now, and all is lost,
    and it seems I must atone.
    Looks like I will pay the cost
    and be memorial’d on their phones.
    One last chance, now, to get wealthy:
    “For ten bucks I’ll be in your selfie!”
