Laugh a Little
A little boy returned from Sunday School with a new perspective
on the Christmas story. He had learned all about the Wise
Men from the East who brought gifts to the Baby Jesus.
He was so excited he just had to tell his parents: "I
learned in Sunday School today all about the very first Christmas!
There wasn't a Santa Claus way back then, so these three
skinny guys on camels had to deliver all the toys!" And
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with his nose so bright wasn't
there yet, so they had to have this big spotlight in the sky
to find their way around."
|There were two (pc joke victims) who went deep
into the frozen woods searching for a Christmas tree. After
hours of subzero temperatures and a few close calls with hungry
wolves, one (pc joke victim) turned to the other and said, ďIím
chopping down the next tree I see. I donít care whether itís
decorated or not!Ē
