Thompson, "What you need is jar number 47."

He tastes it and immediately spits it out, "This is gross!" he yells.

'forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever,' I'd appreciate it if you'd
just leave that part out." He passed the minister five crisp $100 bills and

ceremony where the vows are exchanged.

and swear eternally before God and your lovely wife that you will not ever even
look at another woman, as long as you both shall live?"

demonstrated how he'd done it. The court believed his story, and the suit was
"Congratulations," the lawyer said to the engineer when it was over.

"Thanks," he said, "but he sure had me worried."

It was after 2 a.m. in the fancy restaurant, and all the guests but one had gone
The last guest was sleeping at his table. The cleaning lady, irritated that she
was delayed in doing her job, turned to the restaurant owner.
"I've seen you shake the old fool and wake him up five times," she said.

him up, he asks for his bill and pays it in cash!"
Timing is everything...
A parish priest was being honored at a dinner on the thritieth anniversary of
his arrival in that parish. A leading local politician, who was a member of the
congregation, was chosen to make the presentation and give a little speech at
the dinner, but he was delayed in traffic, so the priest decided to say his own
few words while they waited patiently...
"You will understand," he said, "the seal of the confessional,
can never be broken. However, I got my first impressions of the parish from the
first confession I heard here. I can only hint vaguely about this, but when I
came here twenty-five years ago I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place.
The very first chap who entered my confessional told me how he had stolen a television
set, and when stopped by the police, had almost murdered the officer. Further,
he told me he had embezzled money from his place of business and had an affair
with his boss's wife. As you may imagine, I was appalled. But as the days went
on I knew that my people were not all like that, and I had, indeed come to, a
fine parish full of understanding and loving people."
Just as the priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies
at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and give his talk.
"I'll never forget the first day our parish priest arrived in this parish,"
said the politician. "In fact, I had the honor of being the first one to
go to him in confession."
I was browsing in a souvenir shop when Jerry, the man next to me, struck up a

Marie, an RN, was unhappy with her job, so she submitted her resignation. She
was sure she'd have no trouble finding a new position, because of the nursing
shortage in her area.
She e-mailed cover letters to dozens of potential employers and attached her resume
to each one. Two weeks later, Catherine was dismayed and bewildered that she had
not received even one request for an interview.
Finally she received a message from a prospective employer that explained the
reason she hadn't heard from anyone else.
It read: "Your resume was not attached as stated. I do, however, want to
thank you for the scrumptious vegetable lasagna recipe."
Advice from the Good Book
Two old friends met one day after many years. One attended college, and now was
very successful. The other had not attended college and never had much ambition.
The successful one said, "How has everything been going with you?"
"Well, one day I opened the Bible at random, and dropped my finger on a word
and it was oil. So, I invested in oil, and boy, did the oil wells gush. Then another
day I dropped my finger on another word and it was gold. So, I invested in gold
and those mines really produced. Now, I'm as rich as Gates."
The successful friend was so impressed that he rushed to his hotel, grabbed the
ever-present Gideon Bible, flipped it open, and dropped his finger on a page.
He opened his eyes and his finger rested on the words, "Chapter Eleven."

the store when we realized we didn't have batteries.
I stepped over to a counter to get the batteries but couldn't attract the attention
of the clerk.
I waited for a little while then, pulled out my pocket tape measure and started
measuring a large TV set. Amazingly, a clerk leap-frogged over several pieces
of furniture to reach my side in jig time.
To his "may I help you?" I said - "Of course. I'll take 8 of those
batteries over there."
