It was an elegant dinner party and the hostess had left nothing to chance - except that a little water had splashed on the marble floor. When the waiter came into the dining room carrying the beautiful roast suckling pig, he slipped and fell flat, sending the roast flying.
"Don't worry, Charles," said the hostess calmly across the table. "Just take the roast back to the kitchen and bring out the other one."
A Radio interview I heard a year or two ago. An American and a UK journalist were discussing Thanksgiving. The American asked if we celebrated Thanksgiving in the UK.

A veterinarian was feeling ill and went to see her doctor. The doctor asked her all the usual questions, about symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc., whenshe interrupted him, "I'm a veterinarian and I don't need to ask my patients these kind of questions.

A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible... Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the verse. Little Bobby was excited about the task, but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.

A 4-year-old boy who was asked to return thanks before Christmas dinner. The family members bowed their heads in expectation. He began his prayer, thanking God for all his friends, naming them one by one. Then he thanked God for Mommy, Daddy, brother, sister, Grandma, Grandpa, and all his aunts and uncles. Then he began to thank God for the food. He gave thanks for the turkey, the dressing, the fruit salad, the cranberry sauce, the pies, the cakes, even the Cool Whip. Then he paused, and everyone waited--and waited. After a long silence, the young fellow looked up at his mother and asked, "If I thank God for the broccoli, won't he know that I'm lying?"

With that he asked his final question, "Will you hold my quarter while I go swimming?"

Somebody has well said that there are only two kinds of people in the world- there are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good morning, Lord," and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good Lord, it's morning."
