Queen of Ordinary Enjoys Old Jokes – June 10, 2014

“Why did the chicken cross the road?”       “To get to the other side!”

“Knock… Knock…”          “Who’s there?”       “Orange.”         “Orange who?”       “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?”

“Your dad is so skinny, if he turned sideways and stuck out his tongue, he’d look like a zipper!”

“Your momma is so fat, if she sat on a quarter, it would give back change!”

“If your brains were gasoline, you wouldn’t have enough to drive an ant on a motorcycle half way around a b.b.”

Some jokes are funny.  Some are stupid.  Some are mean.  Some are clever.

When I saw this turkey crossing the road at Kingdom Come State Park yesterday, I couldn’t help remembering the, “Why did the chicken cross the road?” jokes from my childhood.

I prefer to stay away from the mean jokes.  If it has to be mean to get a laugh, it didn’t take a lot of intelligence to think it up, in my opinion.

Joke telling used to be an art form for all kids.  “Hey!  Did you hear the one about…?”

I don’t know when people stopped telling jokes as a form of daily entertainment.  I haven’t heard a joke in ages.

I think God wants us to be able to laugh at the absurdities of life and even to laugh at ourselves.

The Bible says in Proverbs 17:12, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

Job 8:21 – “Fill the mouth with laughing and the lips with rejoicing.”
