The Funny Bone: Week 12
M for ...
Miss Jones had been giving her second-grade students a lesson on science.
She had explained about magnets and showed how they would pick up nails and other bits of iron.
Now it was question time, and she asked, "My name begins with the letter 'M' and I pick up things.
What am I?"
A little boy on the front row proudly said, "You're a mother!"
Jenny was taking two of her grandsons on their very first train ride.
A vendor came down the corridor selling Popping Candy, something neither of them had ever seen before.
Jenny bought each grandson a bag.
The first one eagerly tore open the bag and popped one into his mouth just as the train went into a tunnel.
When the train emerged from the tunnel, he looked across to his brother and said: "I wouldn't eat that if I were you."
"Why not?" replied the curious brother.
"I took one bite and went blind for half a minute."
A young boy came to Cathechism late one Sunday.
His teacher knew that he was usually on time and asked if anything was wrong.
The boy said no, that he was going fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to Church.
The teacher was very impressed and asked the boy if his dad had explained to him why it was more
important to go to Church than to go fishing?
The boy replied, "Yes he did. Dad said he didn't have enough bait for both of us."
When Billy and his grandad entered their vacation cabin, they kept the lights off until they were inside to keep from attracting insects.
Still, a few fireflies followed them in.
Noticing them before grandad did, Billy whispered, "It's no use, Grandpa.
The mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."
Bags of Money
A small boy stunned his parents after church one Sunday when he began to empty his pockets of nickels and dimes.
Finally his mother asked the obvious question, "Where did you get all that money?"
"At Church," the boy replied casually. "They have bags of it."
