A businessman was in a great deal of trouble. His business was failing, he had put everything he had into the business, he owed everybody-- it was so bad he was even contemplating suicide. As a last resort he went to a priest and poured out his story of tears and woe.

When he had finished, the priest said, "Here's what I want you to do: Put a beach chair and your Bible in your car and drive down to the beach. Take the beach chair and the Bible to the water's edge, sit down in the beach chair, and put the Bible in your lap. Open the Bible; the wind will rifle the pages, but finally the open Bible will come to rest on a page. Look down at the page and read the first thing you see. That will be your answer, that will tell you what to do."

A year later the businessman went back to the priest and brought his wife and children with him. The man was in a new custom-tailored suit, his wife in a mink coat, the children shining. The businessman pulled an envelope stuffed with money out of his pocket, gave it to the priest as a donation in thanks for his advice.

A magician on a cruise ship was performing the highlight of the show when a parrot flew onstage and squawked, "It's in his sleeve!"
The magician chased the bird away.

A man went into a pet shop to buy a parrot. The owner pointed to three identical looking parrots on a perch and said, "The parrot on the left costs $ 500." "Why so much?" asked the man. The owner replied, "Well, that parrot knows how to use a computer." Then the man asked about the next parrot. The owner said, "This parrot costs $ 1000. It can do everything the other parrot can, plus it knows how to program in several different languages." The increasingly startled man asked about the third parrot. The owner said that it cost $ 2000 and, of course, the man had to ask, "Well, what can it do?" The owner replied, "To be honest, I've never seen it do anything, but the other two call him boss."

After driving for about eight hours, a trucker decides to pull over and sleep a little while. As soon as he falls asleep, he is awoken by someone knocking on the door of his cab. Can you tell me the time, please?" asks a jogger. "Yeah, it's 5:30," answers the trucker. He falls asleep again only to be woken by another jogger who, too, wants to know the time. "It's 5:40!" yells the trucker. Really needing to catch some sleep before he can continue driving, he writes on a piece of paper: I DON'T KNOW THE TIME. He sticks the paper behind his windscreen. But hardly has he fallen asleep again when he is awoken again by yet another jogger who tells him, "Glad to oblige, it's 5:45."

Joke of the week [355 = year 7, #43] just punishment (May 4, 2009 - May 10, 2009)  

A priest woke up one Sunday morning and looking outside he saw that it was a beautiful day. He decided to skip church and go play a round of golf instead. He drove about 40 miles out of town to avoid being spotted by his parishioners. As he was setting up his first drive on the first hole, Jesus leaned over to God and asked him, "Are you going to let him get away with this?" God told him not to worry, he would handle it. Just as God said that, the priest hit the drive of his life. The ball travelled 500 feet to the green, bounced once and rolled into the hole. The priest stabbed the air with his right fist in ecstatic joy, shouting, "Wow, what a shot!" Jesus asked God, "Why would you let him do that?" To which God only replied, "Because, who is he going to tell?"
