Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been
She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.
One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her
quaint sitting room.
She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.
As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, The young minister noticed a cute
glass bowl sitting on top of it.
The bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated, of all things, a
When she returned With tea and scones, they began to chat.
The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its
strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer

pointing to the bowl.
‘Oh, yes,’ she replied, ‘Isn’t it wonderful? I was walking through the park
a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The
directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would
prevent the spread of disease.
Do you know I haven’t had the flu all winter.’
An 8-year-old girl went to her grandfather, who was working in the yard and
asked him, “Grampa, what is couple s*x?”
The grandfather was surprised that she would ask such a question, but
decided that if she’s old enough to know to ask the question,
then she’s old enough to get a straight answer. Steeling himself to leave
nothing out, he proceeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the
joys and responsibilities of intercourse.
When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her
mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement.
Seeing the look on her face, the grandfather asked her, “Why did you ask
this question, honey?”
The little girl replied, “Grandma says that dinner will be ready in just a
DOGS TOP 10 PET PEEVES ABOUT HUMANS
1. Blaming your f@rts on me … not funny … not funny at all.
2. Yelling at me for barking … I’m a friggin’ DOG, you IDIOT!
3. Taking me for a walk, then not letting me check stuff out. Exactly
whose walk is it anyway?
4. Any trick that involves balancing food on my nose … stop it!
5. Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons. Now you know why we
chew your stuff up when you are not at home.
6. The slight of hand, fake fetch throw. You fooled a dog! What a proud
moment for the top of the food chain, you nitwit.
7. Taking me to the vet for the ‘Big Snip’, then acting surprised when I
freak out every time we go back there.
8. Getting upset when I sniff your guests’ crotches. Sorry, but I haven’t
quite mastered the handshake thing yet.
9. Dog sweaters. Have you noticed the fur? Idiot!
10. How you act disgusted when I lick myself. Look, we both know the truth,
you’re just jealous.
Irish father O’Malley got up one fine spring morning and walked to the
window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside and
noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He
promptly called the local police station. The conversation went something
like this …
“What a grand mornin’ it is! This is Sgt. Flaherty – how might I help ye?”
“This is Father O’Malley at St. Bridget’s. There’s a jackass lying dead on
me front lawn. Would ye mind sending a couple o’yer lads to take care of
Sgt. Flaherty considered himself to be quite a wit, so he said “Well,
now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the
There was dead silence on the line for a moment and then Father O’Malley
replied: “Aye, that’s certainly true, but we are also obliged to notify the
next of kin.”
An airline captain was breaking in a very pretty new blonde stewardess. The
route they were flying had a stay-over in another city. Upon their arrival
the captain showed the stewardess the best place for airline personnel to
eat, shop and stay overnight.
The next morning as the pilot was preparing the crew for the day’s route,
he noticed that the new stewardess was missing. He knew which room she was
in at the hotel and called her, wondering what had happened to her.
She answered the phone, crying, and said she couldn’t get out of her room.
“You can’t get out of your room?” the captain asked, “Why not?”
The stewardess replied: “There are only three doors in here,” she sobbed,
“one is the bathroom, one is the closet, and one has a sign on it that says
‘Do Not Disturb’!”
