One recent Sunday, a young boy arrived to his Sunday school class late. His teacher knew that the boy was usually very prompt and asked him if anything was wrong. The boy replied no, that he was going to go fishing, but that his dad told him that he needed to go to church instead. The teacher was very impressed and asked the boy if his father had explained to him why it was more important to go to church rather than to go fishing. To which the boy replied, “Yes, ma’am, he did. My dad said that he didn’t have enough bait for both of us.”
There were two church-going women gossiping in front of the store when a dusty old cowboy rode up. He tied up his horse the kissed it right on the lips. Repulsed, one of the women asked, “That’s disgusting, why did you do THAT?” To which the cowboy replied, “I’ve got chapped lips.” Confused, the women continued, “Does that make them feel better?” “No, but it stops me from licking them!”
A man is visiting a foreign country but does not speak the language that they speak there. He decides to go to a church service, but the priest is speaking the native language, so the American man just does whatever the man in front of him does. When the man in front of him stands, so does the American man. When the man in front of him sits, so does the American man. At one point, the priest says something, and the man in front of him stood. So the American man stood too. Everyone in the church gasped, so the American man hurriedly sat back down.
Later, the American man figured out that the priest was congratulating a birth. When he had asked for the father to stand, and both men stood up, it had caused some confusion!
