Humor – June 30

There once was this guy that got a dirty old lamp for his birthday. He cleaned it up and POOF!–out popped a genie!

“I shall give you three wishes. You may have anything you like.”

So the guys thinks for a minute and says, “I would like a billion dollars.”

“You shall have it,” and the genie grants him the wish. “Anything else?”

The guy thinks for a while. Then, “I would like a VW Bug with A/C, convertible, power locks, power windows, satellite radio, you know the works.”

“Your wish is my command. What is your last wish?”

“Hmmm. I think I’ll save it for a rainy day.”

“Okay, suit yourself,” says the genie.

So the guy gets in his new VW and goes for a drive to show all his friends. He turns on the radio. There’s a very familiar commercial on. The guy starts singing to it: “I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener.”

As you are receiving my note by e-mail, it’s wise to remember how easily this wonderful technology can be misused, sometimes unintentionally, with serious consequences.

Consider the case of the Illinois man who left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick e-mail. Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her e-mail address, he did his best to type it in from memory. Unfortunately, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife, whose husband had passed away only the day before.

When the grieving widow checked her e-mail, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.

At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the


Dearest Wife,

Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

P.S. Sure is hot down here.

Why is the alphabet in that order? Is it because of that song?

A surgeon goes to return some books he borrowed from the library… The librarian quips after checking the books…

“Sir your books are always returned with the last page missing in every single book…”

The surgeon replies, “I can’t stop myself from removing an appendix when ever I see one.”

The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others — ignoring God! — harvests a crop of weeds. All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life Galatians 6:7-8

Selfishness destroys relationships. It is the number one cause of conflict, arguments, divorce, and even war.

A strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of Morris, one of the older workmen. After several minutes, Morris had enough.

“Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is?” he said. “I will bet a week’s wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won’t be able to wheel back.”

“You’re on, old man,” the braggart replied. “It’s a bet! Let’s see what you got.”

Morris reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, “All right. Get in.”

We must bear the ‘burden’ of being considerate of the doubts and fears of others Romans 15:2

Listening with empathy means you listen without interruption and you listen for fears and feelings. You listen for what they aren’t saying. You’re not trying to fix the situation. Sometimes healing comes just by listening!

An eye roller:

Just as a surgeon was finishing up an operation and was about to close, the patient awakes, sits up, and demands to know what is going on.

“I’m about to close,” the surgeon says.

The patient grabs the surgeon’s hand and says, “I’m not going to let you do that! I’ll close my own incision!”

The doctor hands him the thread and says, “Suture self”.
