A defendant in a lawsuit involving large sums of money was saying to
his lawyer, "If I lose this case, I'll be ruined."
"It's in the judge's hands now," said the lawyer.
"Would it help if I sent the judge a box of cigars?" asked the
"Oh no!" said the lawyer. "This judge is a stickler for ethical
behavior. A stunt like that would prejudice him against you. He
might even find you in contempt of the court. In fact, you
shouldn't even smile at the judge."
Within the course of time, the judge rendered a decision in favor of
the defendant. As the defendant left the courthouse, he said to his
lawyer, "Thanks for the tip about the cigars. It worked."
"I'm sure we would have lost the case if you'd sent them," said the
"But I did send them," said the defendant.
"What?? You did?"
"Yes, That's how we won the case."
"I don't understand," said the lawyer.
"It's easy. I sent the cheapest cigars that I could find to the
judge, but enclosed the plaintiff's business card..."

A student pilot had a less-than-perfect landing, and the instructor

I had purchased a talking metronome while I was attending a
conference in New York for music teachers. Before my son and I
boarded our flight home, I hefted my carry-on bag onto the
security-check conveyor belt. The guard's eyes widened as he watched
the monitor. He asked what I had in the bag, then slowly pulled out
the six-by-three-inch black box covered with dials and switches.
Other travelers, sensing trouble, vacated the area.
"A metronome," I replied weakly, as my son cringed in embarrassment.
"It's a talking metronome," I insisted. "Look, I'll show you." I
took the box and flipped a switch, realizing that I had no idea how
it worked, "One... two... three... four," it said. Everyone
breathed a sigh of relief.
As we gathered our belongings, my son whispered, "Aren't you glad it
didn't go 'four... three... two... one...?'"

Pastor Roger Matthews tells the following story:
We were traveling one summer in the Pocono Mountains and, like a
good Presbyterian family, attended church while we were on vacation.
One lazy Sunday we found our way to a little Methodist Church. It
was a hot day and the folks were nearly out in the pews. The
preacher was preaching on and on until, all of a sudden, he said,
"The best years of my life have been spent in the arms of another
The congregation let out a gasp, came to immediate attention, and
the dozing deacon in the back row dropped his hymnbook. Then the
preacher said, "It was my mother."
The congregation tittered a little and managed to follow along as
the sermon concluded. I filed this trick away in my memory, a great
way to get the congregation's attention back when it has been lost.
Sure enough, the next summer, on a lazy Sunday, I was preaching and
the flies were buzzing around and the ushers were sinking lower and
lower in their seats in the back row until I could hardly see them.
Then I remembered our experience in the Pocono Mountains, and I said
in a booming voice, "The best years of my life have been spent in
the arms of another man's wife."
Sure enough, I had their attention. One of the ushers in the back
row sat up so fast he hit his head on the back of the pew in front
of him. I had them. But you know something, I forgot what came
next. All I could think to say was, "And for the life of me, I
can't remember her name!"

A mother took her three-year-old daughter to church for the first time. The
church lights were lowered, and then the choir came down the aisle, carrying
lighted candles. All was quiet until the little one started to sing in a
loud voice, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you...
Nine-year-old Joey was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday
School. Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy
lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. When he got
to the Red Sea, he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge, and all
the people walked across safely. He used his walkie-talkie to radio
headquarters and call in an air strike. They sent in bombers to blow up the
bridge and all the Israelites were saved.
"Now, Joey, is that REALLY what your teacher taught you?" his mother asked.
Well, no, Mom, but if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never believe
A child came home from Sunday School and told his mother that he had learned
a new song about a cross-eyed bear named Gladly. It took his mother a while
before she realized that the hymn was really "Gladly The Cross I'd Bear!"
Finding one of her students making faces at others on the playground, Ms.
Smith stopped to gently reprove the child. Smiling sweetly, the Sunday
School teacher said, "Bobby, when I was a child, I was told if that I made
ugly faces, it would freeze and I would stay like that."
Bobby looked up and replied, "Well, Ms Smith, you can't say you weren't

know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there.
The mechanic gave her a
piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like. She drew a circle and in the
middle of it wrote 710. He then took her over to another car which had its hood up and asked 'is there a 710

She pointed and said, 'Of

This lead to several hours

The next day the first

they've pulled the ribbons off while they were playing."
"OK, we need to find a
better way to tell them apart," says the second blonde. After several more hours of concentration, they came
up with the bright idea of getting different colored collars.

One summer evening during a
violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when
he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled and gave him
a reassuring hug.
"I can't dear," she said.
"I have to sleep in Daddy's room."
A long silence was broken
at last by his shaky little voice:
A preacher was completing a
temperance sermon; with great expression he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and throw

he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the
And then finally, he said,
"And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

An elderly lady did her
shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her car. She dropped
her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at them at the top of her voice, "I have a gun
and I know how to use it!
Get out of the car you
dirty rotten scoundrels!"
The four men didn't wait
for a second invitation but got out and ran like mad, whereupon the lady, somewhat shaken, proceeded to load
her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat.
She was so shaken that she
could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried and then it dawned on her why. A few minutes
later she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into her car and
drove to the police station.
The sergeant to whom she
told the story nearly tore himself in two with laughter and pointed to the other end of the counter, where
four pale white males were reporting a car jacking by a mad elderly woman described as white, less than 5'
tall, glasses, and curly white hair carrying a large handgun.

(Told as true
On their way to a justice
of the peace to get married, a couple had a fatal car accident.
The couple found themselves
sitting outside Heaven's Gate waiting on St. Peter to do an intake. While waiting, they wondered if they
could possibly get married in Heaven.
St. Peter finally showed up
and they asked him.
St. Peter said, "I don't
know, this is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out." and he left.
The couple sat and waited
for an answer...for a couple of months... and they began to wonder if they really should get married in
Heaven, what with the eternal aspect of it all.
"What if it doesn't work?"
they wondered, "Are we stuck together forever?"
St. Peter returned after
yet another month, looking somewhat bedraggled.
"Yes," he informed the
couple, "you can get married in Heaven."
"Great," said the couple,
"but what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?"
St. Peter, red-faced,
slammed his clipboard onto the ground.
"What's wrong?", asked the
"COME ON!" St. Peter
shouted, "It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it will take me to
