things are a changin’

September 4, 2008

FIF, fill-in-friday, the community story, is changin’. again. but for good.

my purpose for friday is to give you all a reprieve, an escape from that last, sometimes hectic, day of the work week. fill in friday has always been a great source of entertainment and laughter. it ain’t goin anywhere it’s just gonna get some company and is gonna have to learn how to share.

fridays here at inProgress will still be for you and for your entertainment, but each friday will have a different theme that will be on random rotation. you’ll never know what you’re gonna get. and honestly, right now, i really don’t have a lot of ideas. i’m just flyin by the seat of my pants…hoping the ideas will hit me upside the head with their brilliantness!

one thing i love to do is laugh! it is freeing, cleansing, relieving, and just plain ole feels good…so i’m hoping to bring laughter, or at least some big smiles to your face. we’ll see…

until then...what’s your favorite joke?

    its not a joke I don’t know perhaps…but it is adorable:)

    There were two brothers, ages 8 and 10, who lived in a small town. Everyone knew them ‘cos they were trouble makers and were always up to some sort of mischief! Their parents, after trying everything in the book to change their little boys, finally decided to take them to their parish priest, hoping he could help!
    The priest called the youngest boy into his office first. The boy sat down in front of a massive desk, face to face with the priest. After five minutes of sitting in silence, the priest broke it by asking the boy,”Where is God?” The boy looked under the desk, chairs and the cupboard. After his search, he just looked at the priest. “Where is God?” the priest asked louder, pointing his finger at the boy. The boy just stared at the priest,after looking everywhere. “Where is God?” the priest bellowed with his forefinger just inches from the boy’s nose. At this, the boy jumped up and bolted out the door! He ran to his brother who was waiting at the reception. “We’re in big trouble!” the 8 year old told his big brother. “Why?” the older one asked. “Well, God is missing and they think we did it!!!”

    Favorite joke at the moment…

    Pastor wants to cut corners and be thrifty so he buys half the paint needed to paint the peeling church. He thins it and spends the whole painting the tiny church in the blazing sun. During the night there is a down pour and all his hard work gets washed onto the lawn. In the morning he stands in front of the church lamenting all his wasted time. A voice from heaven bellows out, “Repaint and thin no more.”

    Two priests died at the same time and met St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

    St. Peter said, “I’d like to get you guys in now, but our computer’s down. You’ll have to go back to Earth for about a week, but you can’t go back as humans. What’ll it be?”

    The first priest says, “I’ve always wanted to be an eagle, soaring above the Rocky Mountains.”
    “So be it,” says St. Peter, and off flies the first priest.
    The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, “Will any of this week ‘count’, St. Peter?”
    “No, I told you the computer’s down. There’s no way we can keep track of what you’re doing.”
    “In that case,” says the second priest, “I’ve always wanted to be a stud.”
    “So be it,” says St. Peter and the second priest disappears.
    A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests. “Will you have any trouble locating them?” He asks.

    “The first one should be easy,” says St. Peter. “He’s somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult. He’s on a snow tire, somewhere in Minnesota.”

    So a pope and a lawyer die, and they both go to heaven. At the gate they meet St. Peter, who offers to give them a tour of heaven and show them where they’ll be living.

    They’re walking along and St. Peter points to this tiny log cabin off to the side and tells the pope that this is his house. The lawyer is a little disgruntled. After all, if all the pope got was a little cabin, what was he going to get? A cardboard box?

    So the lawyer and St. Peter keep going, and finally come to this huge mansion. Golden driveway, huge pillars, the works. The lawyer is astounded by the sight of the house and asks “Who lives there?”

    St. Peter says, “You do.”

    The lawyer stops and thinks a minute, then turns to St. Peter “Now wait a minute. I get this huge mansion.. and the pope.. THE pope… gets a little shack?”

    St. Peter nods and explains “Oh yes yes… we get popes coming in all the time. But you’re the first lawyer we’ve seen.”
