Silly Saturday – Yuletide Yucks (Christmas Humor)

Three grown sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. When they got together at the Orange Bowl on January 1,  they discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother. 

The oldest said: “I built a big house for our mother.”

The middle son said: “I sent her a Mercedes with a driver.”

The youngest son said: “You remember how our mother enjoys reading the Bible, but at her age she can’t see very well. So I’ve sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the entire Bible. It took elders in the church 12 years to teach him. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot recites it.”

Soon thereafter, their mother sent out her letters of thanks to her three sons.

To her oldest son, she wrote “The house you built is so huge. I live only in one room, but I have to clean the whole house.”

To her middle son, she wrote, “I am too old to travel. I stay most of the time at home so I rarely use the Mercedes. And that driver is so rude! He’s a pain!”

But to her youngest son, “The little chicken you sent was delicious!”

    Oh, groan. At least it starts my Saturday off knowing that I can look forward to tomorrow’s homily.

  2. Very funny! Let me add another:

    A Russian Communist was arguing with his wife, who insisted it was snowing outside their Moscow apartment. Finally he took her arm and moved her towards the window. “You are right!” she said, and he replied. “Rudolph the Red knows rain, Dear.”

    Here is another little joke to go along with the ones you posted. Not meant to be rude or make fun of Christmas….

    We all know that scripture has been edited, added and delted over the past 2000 years. Even now, some of the wording in Church is changing. Until the 9th Century, there were 4 wisemen mentioned in the bible. Do you know why one was taken out???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????/

    He brought fruit cake.
