A man was staggering home from a wonderful party, and decided to take a short cut through the graveyard. He fell into a freshly cut grave. No matter how hard he struggled, he couldn't get out, so he curled up in a corner and went to sleep. A little while later another man coming from the same party, also joyfully tight, took a short cut through the cemetery, and fell into the same grave. However hard he struggled he was unable to climb or jump out, but his struggles woke the first man, who rose up behind him, tapped him on the shoulder, and said, "You can't jump out of here." But he did!
A man bought a horse from a clergyman, but was disappointed. Once he was mounted, nothing he did could persuade the horse to move. He climbed off and rang the clergyman and explained the problem.
"Oh, I am sorry," said the clergyman, "it was foolish of me, but I trained the horse myself in a religious sort of way, and I forgot to tell you. Whenever you want the horse to move forward, say "PRAISE THE LORD!" and whenever you want it to stop, say "ALLELUIA!"." The man went out and mounted the horse, and said “PRAISE THE LORD!" and sure enough, it leapt forward. He decided he had better get used to this, so he directed the horse out onto the road. Not long after he left his gate, a red sports car drove past like fury, horn blaring, and the horse bolted. It leapt the fence and started off across the fields. "WHOA!" shouted the man, "STOP! WHOA!" but the horse bolted on. The man struggled desperately to remember the strange religious command, and eventually it came to him. "ALLELUIA!" he shouted, and the horse skidded to a halt, splay-legged at the edge of a precipice. The man gazed over the horses neck at the drop below and in thankful relief shouted "PRAISE THE LORD!!"

"That's three," said the man, and he climbed off the cart and shot the mule dead.
"Hey!" said the wife, you can't shoot a valuable mule just because he shies at a falling rock. How are we going to manage if you" The man held up his hand, and said, "That's once!"

There was a doting couple who had their only child, Edmund. They were delighted in him as he began to grow, but one thing concerned them greatly. Edmund didn't talk. At his first birthday it wasn't particularly noticed, at his second it was worrying and by his third a matter for the paediatrician, but Edmund said nothing. When he turned four his parents were quietly desperate, but still not a word. They rejoiced when he turned five because he was to go to kindergarten and they were sure that the company of other children would encourage him to speak. But still nothing. So through the kindergarten they sent him to a speech therapist, who was a lovely girl who worked patiently with Edmund but still to no avail. Not a word! Then the young speech therapist went on holiday and the locum was an old dragon. She had a session with Edmund and when there was no result, picked him up and shook him and shouted, "Why won't you speak, blast you!" "Well," said Edmund, "I haven't had anything to complain about before!"

A Baptist Minister decided he should broaden his view of life, so he went to the races. He saw there a Roman Catholic Priest he and decided to watch him for some tips. He noticed that before every race the Priest went down to the Yard and walked around the horses examining them critically, and then walked up to one of them and made the sign of the cross over it. This horse invariably won. The minister watched this wonderful process four times, and decided he was on a winner. Before the fifth race he watched the priest closely, saw him walk up to horse number 9 and make a small sign of the cross over it. The minister rushed off to a bookie and put everything he had in number nine and then ran to the rail to watch. The horses leapt away from the barrier and shot into the curve, where number nine dropped dead. The Minister sought out the Priest and tearfully told him his predicament. "You useless Protestant," exploded the Priest, "can't you tell the difference between a blessing and the last rites!"

"Perhaps I could speak to one of them," said the salesman." "No," said the boy, "they're busy." In desperation the salesman said, "Is there anybody else there at all?" "Yes," said the boy, "there are four policemen." Good," said the hungry salesman, I will talk with one of them. "No," said the boy, "they're busy." "This is unbelievable, said the salesman, " what are they all busy doing?" The little boy whispered back, "Looking for me!"
Two little American boys, one white the other black, had an argument as to whether God was black or white. So they decided to settle it by going into a big church nearby and asking God. They crept up to the High Alter and the little white boy asked God whether he was black or white. There was a priest cleaning behind the Alter, and for a joke he said in a deep, carrying whisper, "I AM WHO I AM". The little boys fled in terror.

After half an hour the assistant wandered in and said, "It's really strange, Mr Harris, he goes straight around to your place, and your wife lets him in!"
There was a game of golf in heaven. The first player teeing off was a magnificent bearded old man with flowing Old Testament robes who slammed the ball with enormous vigour into the water. He promptly strode down, held his club up over the water, and as soon as it divided, walked across the floor of the lake, and hammered the ball onto the green.
He was followed by a younger man who hit off very smoothly, but his ball also went to the water, so he walked down, walked across the water to where the ball had remained floating on the surface, and hit his ball onto the green.
The third player was a much older man but he drove off with great power, but nevertheless the ball went into the water. However, after a moment a trout rose to the surface with the ball in its mouth, a great eagle appeared, caught the trout, and flew around until it was over the green, where the trout dropped the ball, which landed dead on top of the flag, and ran down the pole in a circular motion precisely defining the value of Pi to 3,000 decimal places straight into the hole. The younger bloke tapped his club on the ground and said, "Oh, come on, Dad, let's stop messing around and play serious golf."
Cameron of Lochiel was out shooting one afternoon with his young grandson when they were overtaken by a furious snow storm and were obviously going to be there for the night.

Cameron of Lochiel strode over and kicked the ball into the storm, roaring, "I’ll have none of that English effeminacy here!"
A group of mice rang the bell on the Pearly Gates one day and when St. Peter popped out they asked for admission. St. Peter wasn't very keen but they pleaded and said that they had all been church-mice and very good and wouldn't cause any trouble. St. peter was in a cheerful mood so he let them in. After a while St. Peter noticed one of them and asked how they were getting on. "Oh, terrific, " said the mouse, " but a little cold, you know. All this walking about on gold and marble chills our feet. Would it be alright if we had little platforms on wheels?" This tickled St. Peter and he said it would be OK. Some time a later a cat asked for admission to heaven. St. Peter demurred but the cat said it had been a Vicarage cat and given comfort to many distressed souls, so St. Peter let it in. About a month later St. Peter crossed the cat's path and asked how it was enjoying heave. "Truly wonderful, purred the cat. "The clouds are so soft to sleep on and everyone strokes me and makes me feel at home, and then there is the bonus." "What bonus?" queried St. Peter. "Why," said the Cat, "The meals on wheels!"

The Businessman protested but they insisted so he agreed for a Fee of $10,000. When the time arrived the Chairman introduced the businessman and invited him to speak. The businessman stood up and asked the Chairman for the Fee. The Chairman was flustered and embarrassed but hunted in his pockets and found the cheque and gave it to the businessman, who promptly walked of the podium. The astonished Chairman called after him, "Hey, what about the speech!" The businessman turned back and said, I’ve given it." and added to the Chairman's blank face.

There was once a monastery at the edge of the forest. As happens some times, there had been no new vocations for many years, and the number of monks was shrinking as the older monks died and there were no novices to replace them.
The Abbot used to go into the forest to pray, and he met there a hermit who lived in the centre of the forest, and they used to pray together and talk of the things of God, and the Abbot shared his concern for the shrinking monastery.
The number of monks grew smaller and smaller, and one day after a funeral the Abbot realized that t here were only five of them left, and he went in to the forest to pray, and meeting the hermit, he said how distressed he was,
The hermit said, "I am a hermit. I know nothing of communities, so I can't give you any advice. But I have a message for you from God. One of the monks will be a great saint who will renew the Church!"
The Abbot went back and called the monks together and told them the message. They had known each other for a very long time, and they looked at one another and wondered who the great saint might be! But they each began to treat all the others with greater love and respect, because they didn't know who the saint might be. And after a while, one by one, they each said to themselves, "It might be me!" and began to treat themselves with greater love and respect.
Now after a long time the Abbot was again praying in the forest, when he met the hermit. And the hermit said, "I hope you will pardon a little worldly curiosity, but who is the saint?"
"I don't know," said the Abbot.
"You don't know!" said the hermit. "Have you been looking? Have you been asking the right questions? Have you been directing the life of the monastery towards this vital task?"
"Well," said the Abbot, I've been a bit busy. You see, there are forty of us, now."
Doctor of Music, Medicine, Music, Philosophy and Theology.
"I decided that I would make my life an argument. I would advocate the things I believed in terms of the life I lived and what I did. Instead of vocalising my belief in the existence of God within each of us, I would attempt to have my life and work say what I believed."
"Do you want to be right, or do you want to be well?"
"You become what you talk to yourself about."
CHURCH? - BRYCE COURTENAY
I still sometimes got a bit scared about going to hell, and I used to think quite a lot about being born again. But my heart didn't want to open up and receive the Lord. All the people I knew who had opened their heart to Jesus struck me as a pretty pathetic lot, not bad, not good, just nothing. I couldn't afford to be just nothing when I was aiming to be the welterweight champion of the world.
The Power of One, Bryce Courtenay, page 210
A young man out of work was told by a friend that the zoo was looking for someone to do some work so he went out and found that the gorilla had died and they wanted someone to dress up in a gorilla suit and stay in the cage all day because they couldn't get another replacement right away. The young man wouldn't take the job, but they told him it was $1000 a day so he changed his mind. The first day he huddled in the corner of the cage and didn't move, but all the same he wasn't detected and each day became more adventurous until he was making gorilla noises all the timer and climbing the trees in the cage. A large crowd would gather every day to watch, and this spurred him on. There was a rope hanging from a tree and he started doing Tarzan like swings from one side of the cage to the other, which the crowd greatly appreciated. One day he swung too far and went clean over the top of his cage and fell into the lions den only yards from the lion. This was it, he thought, and stood up and shouted, "Help, I'm not a gorilla, I'm a person, a human, Help!" and the lion said to him, "Shut up, you fool, or we'll both be sacked!"

A TOUCH OF LEMON
The Very Rev. John Shepherd had a student in College who had a Huntin', Shootin' Fishin' lifestyle and a wit to go with it. The rather pompous Dean of his day complained to Shepherd that the students behaviour in Chapel as Server had not been appropriate. It transpired that the students reaction to the Deans ceremonial flourish in pouring the wine into the chalice had been to lean forward and whisper, "A twist of lemon, perhaps?'
Robin Hood lay dying, and all the faithful gathered round. With his weak and fading breath, Robin asked Marion to bring him the best arrow from the quiver beside his bed, and then asked Long John to bring him his bow. He put the arrow to the bow and aimed through the open window into the generous green sward of Sherwood Forest beyond which he loved so much. He demanded of Friar Tuck, "Promise me that wherever the arrow falls, there you will bury me." And when Tuck had sworn, Robin Hood demanded the same of the others. Then with his last strength he drew on hew bow and let the arrow fly.
And then he died, smiling. And next day, as they had promised, they buried Robin Hood on top of his wardrobe.
A burglar was creeping across a room in the Vicarage in the religious darkness when a voice right in his ear said, "Jesus is watching you!" The burglar spun round and shone his torch at the voice. He found himself gazing at a parrot in a cage. He sneered, "So you're Jesus, are you?" "No," said the parrot, I'm Joseph. Jesus is the Doberman behind you!"

"Proverbs 19:'He that hath pity on the poor lendeth unto the Lord: and that which he hath given he will pay him again.' You have heard the terms of the loan," Swift continued, "and if you like the security, put down your money."
Swift was sheltering under a tree in a terrible storm, and was joined by a rough looking man and a pregnant woman. It transpired that they were en route to the local town to be married. As the woman seemed likely to give birth at any moment, Swift offered to marry them, and they readily agreed. After the storm the pair were about to go on their way when the man remembered that he should have a marriage certificate. Swift obliged by writing:
Under an oak, in stormy weather,
I joined this rogue and whore together:
And none but he who rules the thunder,
Can put this rogue and whore asunder.
THE HOOP STORY
A middle aged businessman was feeling out-of-sorts and went to the doctor, who examined him and said, "All that's wrong with you is that you need exercise. How far do you live from your office?" The businessman said, "About four kilometres." Alright," said the doctor, “No more driving. Go down to the toy shop and buy an old-fashioned hoop. Run it to work in the morning and back home at night, and you will be right as rain in no time." The businessman spluttered, "I'll be terribly embarrassed if I do that!" "You choose," said the doctor, it's that or a health camp." So the man bought a hoop and took it to the office and back every day. He was not able to take it up to his office in the lift, so he asked the garage attendant if he could leave it outside his cubicle at the door. After about a month he was really feeling accustomed to the hoop and very much better, but after work one day he came down to the garage and found that his hoop had been stolen. The attendant was sympathetic. "There were some kids running about here, I guess one of them pinched it. Never mind, you can buy another one tomorrow." "That's all very well," the man said, "but how am I going to get home tonight!"
LIONS AND TIGERS
It is said that if you skin a lion and a tiger, only an expert vet could tell the carcasses apart. The difference lies in their behaviour. Loins tend to have lunch and then go to sleep or lie about until they are hungry again. Tigers, on the other hand, eat and then prowl about their territory making sure that it is all happening!

The Bishop wanted to tell them, :" There is no fear in love, Perfect Love casteth out fear" but he had saved money by just using the verse number Unfortunately the telegraph clerk had left out the 1, so it read John 4.18.
