In a small Southern town there was a “Nativity Scene” that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered me. The three wise men were wearing firemen’s helmets. Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left.
At a “Quick Stop” on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, “You Yankees never do read the Bible!”

It was Christmas and the judge was in a merry mood as he asked the prisoner, “What are you charged with?”

“That’s no offense”, said the judge. “How early were you doing this shopping?”
“Before the store opened.”
