This and That

Funny Friday

Posted on: August 12, 2011

Thank Goodness It’s Friday! Woohoo! We made it through the week! Give yourself a pat on the back. Tomorrow is Saturday and what I am sure will be a fun filled weekend.

Friday’s theme is Funny Fridays:

Funny Fridays – Fridays are the funny days. Things I find funny (even if you don’t).  It might be something I saw on the street, something my boys said, or a cartoon I was forced to watched.  Laughter is good for the soul and the perfect way to go into the weekend is with a good laugh, don’t you think?

Here are two very short stories that I stumbled across this week that I found particularly amusing. One of the main reasons I liked them is because I think the Church as a whole takes it’s self to seriously and I applaud those Christians who can let their hair down and laugh at themselves.

ADAM’S RIB

In Sunday School, they were teaching how God created everything,including human beings. Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs. Later in the week,his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill,and said,’Johnny what is the matter?’Little Johnny responded,’I have a pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.’


TWO LITTLE BOY’S

A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be assured that if any mischief occurred in their town their two young sons were in some way involved.

The parents were at their wits end as to what to do about their sons’ behavior. The mother had heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children in the past, so she asked her husband if he thought they should send the boys to speak with the clergyman.

The husband said, ‘We might as well. We need to do something before I really lose my temper!’ The clergyman agreed to speak with the boys, but asked to see them individually. The 8 year old went to meet with him first. The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly,’Where is God?’

The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, ‘Where is God?’ Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face, ‘WHERE IS GOD?’

At that the boy bolted from the room and ran directly home, slamming himself in the closet. His older brother followed him into the closet and asked what had happened. The younger brother replied, ‘We are in BIG trouble this time. God is missing and they think we did it.’

Adam’s Rib and Two Little Boys are published on GatewayToJesus.com and are copywrite St. Louis Inspirational Christian Connection.  I did not write these stories and am not taking credit for them.  I am just sharing and spreading the funny!
