The teacher, Mrs. Jones, asked each of her students how they celebrated Christmas. She called first on young Patrick Murphy. "Tell me, Patrick, what do you do at Christmas time?"
Patrick addressed the class: "Me and my twelve brothers and sisters go to midnight Mass and we sing hymns. Then we come home very late and we put mince pies by the back door and hang up our stockings. Then we go to bed and wait for Father Christmas to come with all our toys." "Very nice, Patrick," she said.
"Now, Jimmy Brown, what do you do at Christmas?" "Me and my sister also go to church with Mum and Dad, and we sing carols. When we get home, we put cookies and milk by the chimney and hang up our stockings. We hardly sleep waiting for Santa Claus to bring our presents." "That's also very nice, Jimmy," she said.
Realizing that there was a Jewish boy in the class and not wanting to leave him out of the discussion, she asked him the same question.
"Now, Isaac Cohen, what do you do at Christmas?" "Well, we also sing hymns," Isaac responded. Surprised, Mrs. Jones questioned further. "Tell us what you sing."
"Well, it's the same thing every year. Dad comes home from the office. We all pile into the Rolls Royce and drive to his toy factory. When we get inside, we look at all the empty shelves and sing,
'What a friend we have in Jesus.'
Then we all go to the Bahamas."
If you smile, I'll got my points, if you laugh I'll got more points, if you share the joke with someone else you make my day and you can have my points. Ya see... Active Rain does not like jokes that are not original, they told me "You won't get points" Who cares, I'd rather get the smiles and the Karma! And whomever found it so important to lodge a formal complaint with Active Rain regarding the use of jokes, Bah Humbug!!! For everyone else, enjoy todays smile...
