Celibacy can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by circumstances.
While attending a Marriage Weekend, my wife and I, listened to the instructor declare:
‘It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other..”
He then addressed the men,
‘Can you name and describe your wife’s favourite flower?’
I leaned over, touched my wife’s hand gently,
‘Self-raising, isn’t it?’
And thus began my life of Celibacy……
This came from John, who is a dab hand in any kitchen.
There was this guy who wanted to become a monk and copy the ancient scriptures of the bible. So he became a monk and went to the monastery to see if he could get the job.
He got the job and the priest gave him scriptures to copy. He found out that he was copying from a copy and asked why he couldn’t copy from the originals because somebody could have made a mistake while copying.
The priest replied, “Because the originals are too valuable.” So the monk asked if he could at least see the originals and the priest agreed to just let him see them.
The priest took the monk down to the vaults where all of the original scriptures were, showed them to the monk, and left him to his silence. The priest was waiting by the door for about an hour and finally decided to go check on the monk.
When he got down to the vaults he saw that the monk was banging his head against the wall and asked what was wrong.
The monk replied, “It said celebrate!”
Last time I heard that one, it was a Jesuit who made the discovery!
Love that one – could be so true for many a man. 🙂 🙂
Funny how all the oldies but goodies are having a rerun.
I’d heard yours in a slightly different form a few years ago and also the priest one reappeared in our inbox recently.
Good ones never stop being funny
Cathy, some of the oldies are well worth repeating!
I should have looked away – you are personally responsible for mor coffee hitting my display than any 10 other bloggers combined. Geeze.
Oh dear, Chuck, should I stop posting Thursday Specials before you sue me for a new computer?
Oh hell no – the laughs are well worth the cleaning effort they cause
Phew! Now I can spend my pocket money. 😆
Dianne, I find these stories come round every three or four years.
I shared this one last fall . . . it’s still funny:
Nancy, I checked it out just now and see I commented, yet I had forgotten all about it. Senior moment, I suppose.
Senior moments are SNEAKY PETES. 😉
‘SNEAKY PETES’, a new one on me. I like it!
I’m glad you like it. I do too . . . I cannot remember where I adopted it from.
But it’s good for all sorts of situations ~ like when BFF eats the last piece of chocolate.
I think I might be adopting the phrase ‘SNEAKY PETES’,even if I don’t have a BFF to eat my last Rolo. http://youtu.be/1YZ4R1fNYzI
That Rollo ad is DARLING!
I’m glad you’re going to adopt “Sneaky Pete.”
“Well, aren’t you a Sneaky Pete?” sounds less critical than “Why you BIG SNEAK!”
It is added to my collection!
Oh brilliant! I wish I was still posting a Joke a Day!
A joke a day is hard work!
Tell me about it!
I’m missing them!! 🙁
Barbara, I think we all do!
