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.
Here’s this week’s edition of Midweek Mirth … so let’s smile a little!
Guy 1: “My uncle in Detroit tried to invent a new kind of car. He took the engine from a Ford, the transmission from a Chevy, the tires from a Cadillac and the exhaust system from a Chrysler.”
Guy 2: “Really? What did he get?”
Guy 1: “Fifteen years for theft.”
… And now for the bonus …
When a man worked for the security department of a large retail store, his duties included responding to fire and burglar alarms. A side door of the building was wired with a security alarm because it was not supposed to be used by customers. Nevertheless people found the convenience of the exit tempting. Even a sign with large red letters, warning “Alarm will sound if opened,” failed to deter people from using it.
One day, after attending to a number of shrieking alarms, the guy placed a small handmade sign on the door that totally eliminated the problem: “Wet paint.”
