Whitewashing the church

The committee met to discuss the condition of the church.
“I think the church needs a face lift,” said one member, “and we should start with a fresh white washing.”
“I agree, but we’ll need a lot of help,” said another.
“I’ll round up a bunch of volunteers,” said another, “and I think I can get enough helpers.”
So, it was arranged, the white wash was purchased, and a volunteer crew with brushes were all set to go.
But, as they brushed on the paint, they noticed that they were going to run out of white wash before they were finished, so it was ordered to add water to the paint, and continue working. Now there should be enough to finish the job.
But, when they were finished, a heavy rainstorm flushed the walls of the church, and most of the white wash was rinsed away.
“The workers all looked up to the sky, and in unison said, “What do we do now?”
A voice came thundering out of the heavens and said, “Repaint you Thinners, and Thin no more.”

Ice Fishing

A man decided to go ice fishing.
He brought all of the paraphernalia need, a fishing pole and line, a hatchet, a bucket, and all. But, just as he brought the hatchet up to cut a hole in the ice, there was a voice from above, “There are no fish in these waters” said the voice.
So, he thought a minute, and decided to go for it, brought the hatchet up, when the voice came back. “There are no fish in these waters,” said the voice.
So the man looked up and said, “Who are you? Are you God?”
The voice answered, “I am the caretaker of this ice skating arena.”

The imported Canaries

A business man ordered a lot of canaries from a merchant in another land to be delivered by ship.
When the ship landed, the man was notified, and when he arrived at the docks he saw them all piled up in wooden cages along the wharf.
Walking along the cages, he noted that there wasn’t much singing going on, in fact, he didn’t hear a peep out of any of them.
Thinking, “Oh my goodness, I won’t be able to sell these if they don’t sing.” So he went into a nearby warehouse and talked to the owner about buying them at 5 or 10cents on the dollar.
After the birds were all in the warehouse and nicely arranged on shelves, there appeared in a newspaper a full page ad saying, “For Sale, Imported Canaries at $10 each.” It also added more descriptions as to their beauty and where the sale was going to be held, at the warehouse.
On the day of the sale, the owner hooked up a speaker system with a recording playing of lots of birds chirping away, and the sales were brisk. At the end, all the birds were sold.
While the owner was counting his receipts, there was a heavy pounding on his office door. When he opened the door, a big man holding bird in his hand walked in and said, “I bought this bird this afternoon.”
The owner interrupted him and said, “I see you did sir, but tell me did you get one of the singers or one of the dancers?

A gorilla goes into a bar

This gorilla goes into a bar, and seats himself on a stool.
The bartender asks, “What’ll you have?”
The gorilla says he wants a bourbon and 7, and puts down a $20 bill.
The barman takes the $20 and returns with the drink and thinking that the gorilla wouldn’t know the difference, returned only $2 in change.
The gorilla sips the drink while barman, not having much else going on, stood nearby. Then the bar guy says to the gorilla, “You know, we hardly ever get a gorilla in here.”
The gorilla answered, “I’m not surprised at $18 a drink.”
