Grandmother used to say
Flies will swarm before a storm
Electricity originates inside clouds.
There, it forms into lightning, which is attracted to
the Earth by golfers. After entering the ground,
the electricity hardens into coal, which, when dug up by
power companies and burned in big ovens called 'generators,'
turns back into electricity...where it is transformed by TV
sets into commercials for beer, which passes through the
consumers and back into the ground, thus completing what
is known as a "circuit".

At dawn the telephone rings, "Hello, Senor Rod? This is
Ernesto, the caretaker at your country house."
"Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?"
"Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your
parrot, he is dead"
"My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?"
"Is, Senor, that's the one."
"Damn! That's a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird.
What did he die from?"
"From eating the rotten meat, Senor Rod."
"Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?"
"Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse. "
"Dead horse? What dead horse?"
"The thoroughbred, Senor Rod."
"My prize thoroughbred is dead?"
"Yes Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart."
"Are you insane? What water cart?"
"The one we used to put out the fire, Senor."
"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"
"The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains
caught on fire."
"What the hell? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed
because of a candle?"
"Yes, Senor Rod."
"But there's electricity at the house!! What was the candle for?"
"For the funeral, Senor Rod."
"WHAT BLOODY FUNERAL?"
"Your wife's, Senor Rod. She showed up very late last night and
I thought she was a thief, so I hit her with your new Taylor Made
Super Quad 460 golf club."
SILENCE.......... LONG SILENCE...........
"Ernesto, if you broke that driver, you're in deep trouble !!"
Blind On One Side
During court one day, the judge quietly passed the clerk a note reading:
"Blind on right side, may be falling. Please call someone."
Understandably alarmed, the clerk called for help before whispering to the
Judge that paramedics were on their way.
Puzzled, the judge pointed to a sagging Venetian blind on the right side of
the room and explained, "I was thinking someone from maintenance!"
These glorious insults are from an era before the English language got boiled
down to 4-letter words.

Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed,
This tiny little Prayer
Keeps running through my head:
God bless all my family
Wherever they may be,
Keep them warm
And safe from harm
For they're so close to me.
And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do;
Hope you don't mind me asking,
Please bless my computer too.
Now I know that it's unusual
To Bless a motherboard,
But listen just a second
While I explain it to you, Lord.
You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends;
Inside those small compartments
Rest so many of my friends.
I know so much about them
By the kindness that they give,
And this little scrap of metal
Takes me in to where they live.
By faith is how I know them
Much the same as you.
We share in what life brings us
And from that our friendships grew.
Please take an extra minute
From your duties up above,
To bless those in my address book
That's filled with so much love.
Wherever else this prayer may reach
To each and every friend,
Bless each e-mail in-box
And each person who hits 'send'.
When you update your Heavenly list
On your own Great CD-ROM,
Bless everyone who says this prayer

The Back Pew
A pastor's wife was expecting a baby, so he stood before
The congregation and asked for a raise. After much discussion, they passed
a rule that whenever the preacher's family expanded, so would his paycheck.
After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation decided to hold
Another meeting to discuss the preacher's expanding salary. A great deal
Of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to how much the
Clergyman's' additional children were costing the church,and how much more it
Could potentially cost. After listening to them for about an
Hour, the pastor rose from his chair and spoke, 'Children are a
Gift from God, and we will take as many gifts as He gives us.
Silence fell on the congregation. In the back pew, a little old lady struggled to stand,
And finally said in her frail voice, 'Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get
Too much of it, we wear rubbers.' The entire congregation said, 'Amen.'
