The Priest noticed the little boy throughout the service. The boy never seemed to take his eyes off a plaque on the wall of the church.
After the service the boy tugged on the Priest's robe and asked about the plaque. The Priest said, "Those are the names of all the people who died in The Service here." The boy's eyes grew wide as he asked back, The 9:00 service or the 10:30? "

A farmer was taking a pig with one wooden leg on a walk in town one day . . . on a leash. A man stopped the farmer on the sidewalk and tried to satisfy his understandable curiousity by asking, "Why does your pig have one wooden leg?"
"Let me tell you about this pig. This is ONE SPECIAL PIG! About two months ago I spent all day Saturday cleaning out the underbrush in the woods behind my cabin. When I finished at the end of the day, I went back to the cabin, ate dinner, and went to bed. I was so tired that I slept incredibly soundly. The cabin caught fire during the night. I didn't know it, but the pig did! Just before my cabin crashed down upon me in a pile of burning embers, this pig grabbed me and dragged me out of the cabin, saving my life. This is one special pig!!"
"Yes, I can see he's special, but why does he have one wooden leg?" asked the man again.
"Let me tell you something else about this pig. About a month ago, the pig and I were taking a relaxing Sunday drive in my pickup truck. The pig was sitting in the front seat with me. All of a sudden, something made me sneeze violently. I lost control of the truck, ran off the road, and hit a tree head-on. The crash knocked me out cold. The truck caught fire. Just before the pickup exploded in a big ball of fire, the pig once again came to my rescue. He grabbed me and dragged me to safety. This is REALLY a special pig!!!"
Now obviously agitated at not receiving an answer to his seemingly simple question, the man yelled, "OK, so he's special! Why does he have ONE WOODEN LEG?!?!?!"
"Well, good grief, man. A pig that good, you can't eat him all at once!"

"No, Father" "Mrs. O'Brien?" "No, Father." "Was it Mrs. O'Shaunessy, then?" "No, Father" On the way out the man meets a friend who asks him, "What did you get?" "Five Hail Mary's and three good leads!"

Joke #1:
A new pastor was out visiting his parishioners one Saturday afternoon. All went well until he came to one house. Although it was obvious someone was home, no one came to the door even after he had knocked several times.

Finally, he pulled out his card, wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back and stuck it in the door.

The next day he as he was counting the offering he found his card in the collection plate. Below his message was notation "Genesis 3:10."

Revelation 3:20 reads: "Behold I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and oen the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me."

Genesis 3:10 reads: "And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked."

Joke #2:
A couple had two young sons, 8 and 10 years of age. The boys were very mischevious and if there was any trouble in town, the couple could be assured that their sons were involved.

There was a clergyman in town who had a reputation for being able to discipline children. So, the couple decided to send their young sons to talk to the clergyman.

The clergyman asked to speak to the boys individually. So, the 8 year old went in first. The clergyman sat him in a chair and asked the boy sternly, "where is God?"

The boy made no attempt to answer the question so the clergyman asked him again, this time in an even more stern voice, "Where Is God?"

The boy still made no attempt to answer so the clergyman asked him in a loud and stern voice, "WHERE IS GOD?"

At this the boy bolted from the chair and ran home, shuting himself in a closet. The older brother came and asked him, "what is wrong?" The younger boy replied, "we are in BIG trouble this time! God is missing, and they think we have something to do with it!"
