On the lighter side..."A cheerful heart is the health of the body."* *Proverbs 17:22

Fr. Flood/Webb©1998


•A new teacher trying to make use of her Psychology courses, starts her class by saying, "Everyone who thinks that they are stupid, please stand up."

After a few minutes one child stood up. The teacher, somewhat surprised, asked, "Do you really think you're stupid?"

"No, ma'am," he replied, "but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself."

•A woman has twins, and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt, and they name him "Amal." The other goes to a family in Spain, and they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan searches for and finds out the identity of his birth mother. He writes her a letter, enclosing a picture of himself. The woman gazes long and hard at the photo and tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Amal.

Her husband observes, "But they're identical twins -- if you've seen Juan, you've seen Amal."

•The city cousin, visiting at the farm for the first time, asked his country cousin, "How did your pig get that wooden leg?"

"Well, it was like this," replied the farmer, "One day burglars broke into the house and when the pig saw them he got my shot gun off the wall, called the police, and held them at bay for the police."

"Amazing! But how did he get the wooden leg?" the cousin pressed.

"Last Winter lightning struck the barn and a fire started. That pig opened the barn door, herded all the livestock to safety and called the fire department." replied the farmer.

"Yes, but how did he get the wooden leg," the cousin asks again.

"Well, it was like this," replied the farmer. "One day the youngin’ crawled away and fell in the pond. The pig jumped into the pond, grabbed the baby by the diaper, pulled him to shore, and give him mouth to mouth resuscitation. He saved the youngin's life."

"Very interesting," the city cousin says in exasperation. "But what does it have to do with his wooden leg?"

"Well that’s what I’m trying to tell you," offered the farmer. "A pig like that you just don’t eat all at once."
