A SMALL BOY badly wanted a baby brother, so his dad suggested he pray every night for one. The boy prayed earnestly, night after night, but his prayers seemingly weren’t answered. After a few weeks, he didn’t bother to ask anymore.
Some months later, his dad said they were going to see Mom in the hospital and he was going to get a big surprise. When they got to the room, the little boy saw his mother holding two babies.
“Well, what do you think about having twin brothers?” his dad asked. The little boy thought for a moment and replied, “I bet you’re glad I stopped praying when I did.”
A Simpler Solution?
LITTLE Billy’s kindergarten class went on a field trip to the local police station. They saw a bulletin board with photos of the FBI’s 10 most-wanted criminals. Billy pointed to one of the photos and asked the officer if that person was really a most-wanted criminal.
“He certainly is,” answered the officer. Billy replied, “Then why didn’t you just keep him when you took his picture?”
Nothing Fishy Here
A FARMER spotted a city fellow fishing in his pond and pointed out the big sign nearby that read NO FISHING HERE!
The disgusted fisherman nodded. “Whoever put that sign up really knew what he was talking about. I haven’t had even a nibble all morning.”
MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB
Her father shot it dead.
Now it goes to school with her,
Between two hunks of bread.
HUMPTY DUMPTY sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the kings' horses,
And all the kings' men..
Had scrambled eggs,
For breakfast again.
