A frog goes into a bank
A frog goes into a bank, and asks to take out a loan.
The cashier, who has the unfortunate name of Miss Patricia Whack,
starts to take him through the application form.
Everything is fine until she discovers he has nothing to offer
"Don't worry," he tells her, "My father is Mick Jagger - he
will see to it you get paid back."
"I'm sorry," she replies, "but I can't accept that.
Don't you have anything you can offer as security?"
"Well, I do have this." The frog takes out of his packet
a small, cheap, china cat. Patricia takes it to her
supervisor and explains the situation.
"So," she concludes, holding out the china cat, "I don't know
what this is, or what to tell this customer."
"Isn't it obvious?" the supervisor asks, "It's a nick-nack,

A missionary comes home
A missionary comes home for a break, and decides to make some
money decorating houses. He buys some good paint, but to
make it go further and increase his profit, he waters it down.
He has just finished painting the first house, standing back
and admiring his handiwork when he hears a Voice speak to him from Heaven:

A New Element
A new element, the heaviest known to science, was recently discovered.
The element, tentatively named Administratium, has no protons or
electrons and thus an atomic number of 0. However, it does have 1 neutron,
75 executive vice neutrons, 125 vice neutrons, and 111 assistant vice
neutrons. This gives it an atomic mass of 312. The 312 particles are
held together by a force that involves the continuous exchange of
meson-like particles called morons.
Since it has no electrons, Administratium is inert. However, it can be
detected chemically since it impedes every process with which it has
contact. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Administratium
caused one process to take four days to complete when it would have
normally occurred in less than one second.
Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately three years, during
which time it does not actually decay but, instead, undergoes a
reorganization in which executive vice neutrons, vice neutrons, and
assistant vice neutrons randomly change position. Some studies have
suggested that atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization.
Research indicates that Administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere,
it tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies,
large corporations, and universities, and can usually be found in the
newest, best appointed and best maintained buildings.
Scientists point out that Administratium is known to be toxic at any level
and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to
accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Administratium can be
isolated or controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results are

What Was Jesus?
Rumor has it that JESUS WAS JEWISH...
- He went into His father's business
- He lived at home until He was 33
- His Mother was sure He was God.
But then again, just maybe JESUS WAS IRISH...
- He never got married
- He was always telling stories
- He loved green pastures.
Or perhaps, JESUS WAS PUERTO RICAN...
- His first name was 'Jesus'
- He was bilingual
- He was always being harassed by the authorities.
Then again it is possible that JESUS WAS ITALIAN...
- He talked with his hands
- He had wine with every meal
- He worked in the building trades.
There are those who believe JESUS WAS BLACK...
- He called everybody "brother"
- He liked Gospel
- He couldn't get a fair trial.
Some of us suspect that JESUS WAS CALIFORNIAN...
- He had long hair
- He walked around barefoot
- He started a new religion.
However, there is one other possibility - MAYBE JESUS WAS A
- He had to feed a crowd at a moments notice when there was no
- He kept trying to get the message across to a bunch of men
who just didn't get it
- Even when He was dead, He had to get up because there was
more work for Him to do

A Pome About A Spell Checker
Eye have a spell chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marks four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin not sea
Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight for it too say
Weather eye am wrong or write
It shows me strait a weigh
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It shoes before two long
And eye can put the error write
It's rare lea ever wrong
Eye have run this poem threw it
I'm shore your please to no
It's letter perfect all the weigh
My chequer towed me sew
