The Funny Bone: Week 01
Grace before meals
The Catechism teacher asked Kim, "Do you say your prayers before eating?"
"No" she replied, "I don't have to. My Mum is a good cook!"
A leaf out of a book
A little boy opened the family Bible, and looked at the old pages as he turned them. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible.
He picked it up and looked at an old leaf from a tree that had been pressed in between the pages.
“Mama, look what I found!” the boy called out.
“What do you have, dear?” she asked.
With amazement in his voice, the boy replied, “I think it’s Adam’s suit!”
A little boy went up to his mother one day while holding his stomach and said, "Mum, my stomach hurts." His mother replied, "That's because it's empty, you have to put something into it!"
Later that day when the Priest was over for dinner, the Priest began to feel sick. Holding his head he said, "I have a very bad headache!"
The little boy looked up at him giving him the sweetest smile that any little child could give. Then he said, "That's because it's empty, you have to put something into it!"
Putting the world together
A father who was trying to read a magazine was being bothered by his little daughter, Jane. So, he took a sheet out of his magazine, where the map of the world was printed. He tore it into small pieces, gave it to Jane, and said, "Go into the other room and try to put this together."
In a few minutes, Jane came back and gave him the map correctly fixed together. The father was very surprised and asked how she had finished so fast.
"Oh", she said, "on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got Jesus in His place, then the world came out all right."
One day, I saw two little girls crying a lot on a bench in the park. Thinking they might be hurt, I went over and asked them. "Are you all right?"
Still crying, one girl showed me her doll and said, "My baby's arm came off." I took the doll from the girl and soon fixed her arm. "Thank you." came a whisper.
Next, I asked her friend, "and what's the matter with you, young lady?" She wiped her cheeks and said, "I was helping her cry."
A 4-year-old boy was asked to say thanks before Christmas dinner. He began his prayer thanking God for all his friends, naming them one by one. Then he thanked God for Mommy, Daddy, brother, sister, Grandma, Grandpa, and all his aunts and uncles. Then he began to thank God for the food. He gave thanks for the turkey, the fruit salad, the pies and all the cool cakes.
Then he paused, and everyone waited -- and waited. After a long silence, the boy looked up at his mother and asked, "If I thank God for the broccoli, won't he know that I'm lying?"
