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!
Radio To The Rescue
The foreman for a construction company was interviewing an applicant. He asked the plasterer to bring his tools in so he could see what he could do. The fellow returned with tools slung over his shoulder and hanging from his pockets.
In one hand he was holding an unidentifiable object covered in plaster. The foreman asked what the object was.
“My radio,” said the applicant.
“All right, you can start tomorrow,” said the foreman.
The applicant looked surprised. “That’s all? You don’t want to see what I can do?”
“Any plasterer with a radio looking like that one must have put in at least three years of work.”
And now for the bonus …
Rules Are Rules
Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, a student nurse found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn’t need her help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let her wheel him to the elevator.
On the way down she asked him if his wife was meeting him.
“I don’t know,” he said. “She’s still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.”
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
Yes, they say that Jesus saves
when He’s got nowt else to do,
like go and ride the green-room waves
up Rincon way, or Malibu.
He’s got a Chevy Nomad
with a longboard on the rack,
and another longboard for His Dad
sticking out the back.
They’ve gone off on safari,
the Father and the Son,
from Pipeline down to Woolamai
they’re off to find some fun
for after their Creation’s birth,
it was time to learn to surf.
The Banzai Pipeline is off Ehukai beach on Oahu’s North Shore, and Cape Woolamai is just south of Melbourne on Philip Island
