Kids Say the Darndest Things

A Sunday School teacher asked, “Who can tell me what Easter means?” A little boy raised his hand and said, “That’s when Jesus was crucified, and buried, and was raised from the dead on the third day.” The teacher was impressed until the youngster then added, “And if He sees His shadow there will be six more weeks of winter!”The Sunday School assignment was to write out a prayer to God. One kid wrote the following: “Dear God, I ask You to bless all the Jews. And bless all the Catholics. And bless all the Prostitutes.”

Here is a collection of other assorted comments from kids in Church:

The first book of the Bible is the Guinness Book of World Records. In it we are told that Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. One of their children, Cain, asked, “Am I my brother’s son?”God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac on Mount Montezuma. Jacob, son of Isaac, stole his brother’s birthmark. One of Jacob’s sons, Joseph, gave refuse to the Israelites in Egypt.

Pharaoh forced the Hebrew slaves to make bread without straw. Moses led them to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread, which is bread made without any ingredients. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide. He got the ten commandments, but died before he ever reached Canada. The fifth commandment is “Humor thy father and mother.”

David was Hebrew king who fought with the Finkelsteins, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. Solomon, one of David’s sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.

Christians have only one wife, this is called monotony. Noah’s wife was called Joan of Ark. Lot’s wife was a pillar of salt by day, and a ball of fire by night. The wives of the Apostles were called Epistles. Jesus was followed by the Twelve Opossums.

Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption!

10 Ways to Survive Dull Sermons

  • Scratch you arm and shoulder and see how many other people you can make itch.

True Confessions?

A man with a nagging secret couldn’t keep it any longer. In the confessional he admitted that for years he had been stealing building supplies from the lumberyard where he worked.“What did you take?” his parish priest asked.“Enough to build my own home and enough for my son’s house. And houses for our two daughters. And our cottage at the lake.”“This is very serious,” the priest said. “I shall have to think of a far-reaching penance. Have you ever done a retreat?”“No, Father, I haven’t,” the man replied. “But if you can get the plans, I can get the lumber.”

Three Wishes

A despondent wife whose husband had left her for another woman was walking along the beach when she saw a bottle on the sand. She picked it up and pulled out the cork. Whoosh! A big puff of smoke appeared.“You have released me from my prison,” the genie told her. “To show my thanks, I grant you three wishes. But take care, for with each wish your mate will receive double of whatever you request.”The woman thought for a moment and then asked for a million dollars. There was a flash of light, and a million dollars appeared at her feet. At the same instant, in a far-off place, her wayward husband looked down to see twice that amount at his feet.“And your second wish?”“Genie, I want the world’s most expensive diamond necklace.”

Another flash of light, and the woman was holding the precious treasure. And, in that distant place, her husband was looking for a gem broker to buy his latest bonanza.

“Genie, is it really true that my husband has two million dollars and more jewels that I do, and that he gets double of whatever I wish for?” The genie said it was indeed true.

“Okay, genie, I’m ready for my last wish,” the woman said. “Scare me half to death.”

How to Make Your Mark in this World

There was this guy who was having breakfast with his grandson. “I want to tell you the secret to a long and lasting life,” he said, “but you cant tell your mom and dad I told you this.”

“OK, Grandpa,” the kid said.

“Here it is,” his Grandpa said, “you sprinkle gunpowder on your cornflakes every morning for breakfast.”

The kid didn’t realize his Grandpa was only joking, so he did it; faithfully, and secretly every morning. And wouldn’t you know it; the kid lived to be 93 years old!

When he died he left five children, twelve grand-children, sixteen great-grandchildren — and a twenty foot hole in the wall of the Crematorium!

Yep, that’s one way to leave your mark in this world!!

The third boy says, “I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon… and it takes eight people to collect all the money!”
