Something to make you smile
A lawyer phoned the governor’s mansion shortly after midnight. “I need to talk to the governor, it’s an emergency!” exclaimed the lawyer. After some cajoling, the governor’s assistant agreed to wake him up. “So, what is it that’s so important that it can’t wait until morning?” grumbled the governor. “Judge Pierson just died, and I want to take his place,” begged the attorney. “Well, it’s OK with me if it’s OK with the mortuary,” replied the governor.

Ole was having a conversation with Pastor Goodbunken one afternoon. Ole was feeling a little out of sorts with the world, so he thought that talking to the preacher might help. “Ya know, Pastor,” said Ole, “I been going to dis church for thirty years and heard hundreds of sermon. I can't even remember one of them. I sometimes vonder if any of dem did me any good.”

Pastor Goodbunken smiled, and said, “Well, Ole, I’ve had 3 meals a day for 50 years...that’s maybe 50 thousand meals. So, I might wonder what good they did me...but I have to remember, that without them, I would have STARVED.”
