Remember the Alamo!

Texas makes me think of the old slogan “Remember the Alamo.”

 It seems that during that battle, the guy in charge of the whole thing put his wife, of all people, on the battle line. She was shot by the enemy, shattered her patella, and had to be removed from the front line. 

After the fighting was over, she divorced her husband, and sued for Alamo-knee.

Simple Operation

A man was seen fleeing down the hall of the hospital just before his operation.  “What’s the matter?” he was asked.

He said, “I heard the nurse say, ‘It’s a very simple operation, don’t worry, I’m sure it will be all right.’”

“She was just trying to comfort you, what’s so frightening about that?”

“She wasn’t talking to me.  She was talking to the doctor!”

God is watching

In a Catholic school cafeteria, a nun placed a note in front of a pile of apples, “Only take one. God is watching.”

Further down the line was a plate of cookies. A little boy placed his own note in front of the plate.  “Take all you want. God is watching the apples.”

Finding heaven

A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store. As he waited, he was approached by the new pastor in town, who asked, “Can you tell me where the post office is?”

“Sure,” the boy replied. “Just go straight down this street a couple of blocks and turn to your right.”

The pastor thanked him and said, “I’d like you to come to church on Sunday. I’ll show you how to get to heaven.”

The little boy replied with a chuckle. “Aw, come on. You don’t even know the way to the post office!”
