As the church service got underway, the minister said to the congregation, “Let us pray.” Then in his very preacher-sounding voice, he began, “Father, we know we are but dust…”
During the short pause before the next phrase of the prayer, a child’s loud whisper could be heard, “Mommy, what is butt dust?”
The prayerful mood was lost as embarrassed snickers turned into loud guffaws and needless to say, the minister never finished that prayer.
People think “icy” is the easiest word to spell… Come to think of it, I see why.
I had a job offer from a large company and they offered to fly me out to the interview on business class.
During the return flight we were given gourmet brownies and cookies. Not hungry, I decided to save them for later, so I placed them in an airsickness courtesy bag.
After the plane landed, I got up to leave and a flight attendant approached me if I wanted her to dispose of the bag.
I said, “No thanks, I’m saving it for my kids.”

You’re getting old when you don’t care where your wife goes, just so you don’t have to go along.
A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says,”I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.
“Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams. We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her.”
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like heck they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this,”
She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “they’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way.”
