    Church humor yes. But there’s a really good lesson here.

    True story! It was around Christmas time 1954 (I was 4) and I was in my mom's small country church and the preacher starts his sermon with, "God is a spirit" and pauses to let that sink in and I stand up in the pew and say loudly, "and so is Santa Claus."

    My folks had recently been explaining to me why they didn't allow me to believe that Santa was real and came down the chimney and brought gifts to the good kids. My dad explained to me that Santa was invisible like a spirit and my gifts came from them.

    One Sunday morning, Satan appeared before a small town congregation. Everyone started screaming and running for the front church door, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away.

    Soon, everyone was gone, except for an elderly gentleman who sat calmly. Satan walked up to the man and said, "Don't you know who I am?"

    The man replied, "Yep, sure do."

    Satan asked, "Aren't you going to run?"

    "Nope, sure ain't," said the man.

    Perturbed, Satan asked, "Why aren't you afraid of me?"

    The man calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for over 48 years."

    I haven’t read the whole thread yet so hopefully not a repeat.

    “One day Moses and Jesus were playing golf. They were at the tee of a beautiful par 3, with a lake right in the middle of the fairway. Moses selects a 5 iron, tees-up his ball and swings. His ball sails very high and lands in the middle of the lake. He mutters to himself and tees-up a second ball, this time selecting a 4 iron. This shot was perfect; landing right in the middle of the green.

    Jesus pauses for a moment to ponder his club selection. "Hmmmm..... Arnold Palmer would use this," he says as he picks up a 5 iron.

    "But, Jesus. My 5 iron shot ended up in the lake. You should use a 4 iron!"

    "Nope. Arnie would use a 5," insisted Jesus.

    So, Jesus swings hard and alas his shot ends up in the middle of the lake too. Jesus strolls over to the lake and walks out on the water to retrieve his ball. As Jesus is walking on the water trying to locate his ball a foursome comes up to the tee, sees a man walking on the water and one of them exclaims, "Who does he think he is? Jesus Christ?"”

    "As a matter of fact," explains Moses, "He is Jesus Christ but he thinks he's Arnold Palmer."

    That was 10 years ago when I was "letting my hair down" and playing the role of wife for (the love of my life) my neighbor Zek. ;):) I shan't tell anymore :D:D:D.
