Back Pain

Michel, Ron and Peter were fishing in a lake one day, when Jesus walked across the water and joined them in the boat.

When the three astonished men had settled down enough to speak, Michel asked humbly: "Jesus, I've suffered from back pain ever since I played too many games at Sable Trace. Could you help me?"

"Of course, my son," Jesus said, and when he touched the man's back he felt relief for the first time in years.

Ron, who wore very thick glasses and had a hard time reading and driving, asked if Jesus could do anything about his poor eyesight.

Jesus smiled, removed the man's glasses and tossed them into the lake.
When they hit the water, the man's eyes cleared and he could see everything distinctly.

When Jesus turned to Peter, the guy put his hands out defensively.
"Don't touch me!" he cried, "I'm on a disability pension."

In Love

Last summer Ed met a woman while on vacation and fell head over heels in love with her.

On the last night of his vacation, the two of them went to dinner and had a serious talk about how they would continue the relationship.

"It's only fair to warn you, I'm a total golf nut," Ed said to his lady friend.
"I eat, sleep and breathe golf, so if that's a problem, you'd better say so now."

"Well, if we're being honest with each other, here goes," she replied. "I'm a hooker."

"I see, Ed replied, and was quiet for a moment.

Then he added, "You know, it's probably because you're not keeping your wrists straight when you tee off."

A guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre.

However, after planning the crime, getting in and out past security, he was captured only 2 blocks away when his Ford Econoline ran out of gas.

When asked how he could mastermind such a daring and otherwise brilliant crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied:

"I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."

Two young vampire bats are hanging upside down from the ceiling of a cave.

One says to the other: "Hey, why wait for dusk? Let's leave now to bite the legs of cows. We'll beat all the others there and get the best blood."

The other urges him to wait, reminding his friend that bats only go out at dark when they won't be blinded by the sunlight and their radar works better.

The first bat says "I'm gonna go now." and bolts out of the cave entrance into the daylight.

A short while later, the impulsive bat returns to the cave covered in blood. His patient friend, now envious, says "Wow! You hit the mother lode! Where did you get all that blood?"

The first bat leads the second bat to the cave entrance, points out, and says "See that building over there?"
Blinded by the sunlight, his squinting companion replied "No".

"Neither did I."

Traffic Ticket

A local law enforcement officer stopped a car for traveling faster than the posted speed limit.

Since he's in a good mood that day he decides to give the poor fellow a break
and write him out a warning instead of a ticket.

So, he asks the man his name.
"Fred," he replies.
"Fred what?" the officer asks.
"Just Fred," the man responds.

When the officer presses him for a last name, the man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it.

The officer thinks he has a nutcase on his hands but plays along with it.
"Tell me Fred, how did you lose your last name?"
The man replies : "It's a long story so stay with me. I was born Fred Dingaling.
I know, funny last name. The kids used to tease me all the time.
So I stayed to myself. I studied hard and got good grades.
When I got older I realized that I wanted to be a doctor.
I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, finally got my degree so I was Fred Dingaling, MD.

After a while I got bored being a doctor so I decided to go back to school.
Dentistry was my dream.
Got all the way through school, got my degree so I was now Fred Dingaling MD DDS.

Got bored doing dentistry so I started fooling around with my assistant.
She gave me VD.
So, I was Fred Dingaling , MD DDS with VD.

Well, the ADA found out about the VD so they took away my DDS so I was
Fred Dingaling , MD with VD.

Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my DDS because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as Fred Dingaling with VD.

Then the VD took away my 'dingaling' so now I'm just Fred."

The officer walked away in tears, laughing so hard and tore up the Warning Ticket.

There was a man named George who got a new job.
His fellow employees always met for a round of golf every Saturday.
They asked George to meet them at 10:00 Saturday morning.
George replied that he would love to meet them, but he may be 6 minutes late.

On Saturday morning George was there at exactly 10:00.
He golfed right handed and won the round.

Following Saturday rolls around, and George says that he will be there, but he may be 6 minutes late again.
He shows up right on time, golf's left handed, and wins the round.
This continues for the next few weeks, with George always saying that he may be 6 minutes late, and then always winning the round golfing, either left or right handed.

The other employees are getting tired of this, and decided to ask him what the deal was.

They said, ''George, every Saturday you say you may be six minutes late.

You never are.
Then you show up and golf with either right handed or left handed, and always win. What is up with that?

George replies, ''Well, I am a very superstitious kind of guy.

Every Saturday when I wake up, I look over at my wife.
If she is sleeping On her left side, I golf left handed.
If she is sleeping on her right side, I golf right handed.''

''Well,'' one of the employees questioned, ''What happens if she is laying on her back?''

George replies, ''Then I am 6 minutes late.''

The Monkey and the Hare

There was a long dry spell and there was little food left in the forest.
Near to fainting with hunger, the cunning Hare said to the Monkey : "Monkey, let us amuse ourselves - why don't we pretend to stew each other in the clay pot to pass the time?"

Foolish Monkey jumped to the idea.
"Oh Hare, you are very wise - if we stew each other, we won't be hungry anymore. I will get the firewood".

Soon the fire and pot were prepared and it was time to start the stewing.
Hare jumped in first and Monkey stirred his make-believe stew.
When the heat became unbearable, Hare cried "muzukuru muzukuru ndostva!" (I'm burning!).
Immediately, Monkey helped Hare out of the pot.

Now it was Monkey's turn - he jumped in and after some time, things got hot. Monkey cried, "Sekuru, sekuru ndostva!" (I am burning!)
Hare replied, "Tsviramo" (burn).
Monkey continued to plead with Hare to let him out, but the reply was the same. Eventually, Monkey was stewed. What a meal Hare had!!

The moral of the story is: "Don't accept every idea you hear."

The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?" she asked.
The guide said: "Yes, and the way is hard, and you will be old before you reach the end of it, but the end will be better than the beginning."

But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, "Nothing will ever be lovelier than this."

Then the night came, then the storm, and the path was dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, "Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come."

And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children, "A little patience and we are there."

So the children climbed, and when they reached the top they said, "Mother, we would not have done it without you."

And the mother, when she lay down at night, looked up at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I have given them strength."
And the next day came strange clouds which darkened the earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped and stumbled, and the mother said: "Look up, lift your eyes to the light!"

The children looked and saw above the clouds an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the darkness. And that night the Mother said, "This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God."

And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old, and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather, and at last they came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide.

And mother said: "I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone, and their children after them."

And the children said, "You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her.
And they said: "We cannot see her, but she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence!"

Your Mother is always with you. She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks, she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well.

Your Mother lives inside your laughter, she's crystallized in every tear drop. She's the place you came from, your first home, and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space...not even death!

Three little boys were concerned because they couldn't get anyone to play with them. They decided it was because they had not been baptized and didn't go to Sunday School.

So they went to the nearest church. Only the janitor was there.
One little boy said, "We need to be baptized because no one will come out and play with us. Will you baptize us?"

"Sure," said the janitor. He took them into the bathroom and dunked their heads in the toilet bowl, one at a time. Then he said, "Now go out and play."

When they got outside, dripping wet, one of them asked,"What religion do you think we are?"

The oldest one said, "We're not Kathlick, because they pour the water on you."

We're not Babtis, because they dunk all of you in the water."

"We're not Methdiss, because they just sprinkle you."

The littlest one said, "Didn't you smell that water!"

"Yeah! What do you think that means?"
"I think it means we're Pisscopalians."
