Where is Jesus Today?
A Sunday School teacher of pre-schoolers was concerned that his students might be a little confused about Jesus because of the Christmas season emphasis on His birth.
He wanted to make sure they understood that the birth of Jesus occurred a long time ago, that he grew up, etc. So he asked his class, "Where is Jesus today?"
One day a boy named Tommy arrived in class, and his teacher, Mrs. Smith, started to talk about whales. "Whales can't eat people," she said, "their teeth are too soft and brush-like."
"But in the Bible, Jonah was eaten by the whale!" objected Tommy.
"I'm sure that's not true Tommy" said Mrs. Smith as she walked back to her desk.
Two Little Boys In The Hospital
Two little boys are in a hospital and are lying next to each other.
The first boy leans over and asks, "What are you in here for?"
The second replies, "I'm in here to get my tonsils out and I'm a little nervous."
The first boy says, "You've got nothing to worry about. I had that done to me once. They put you to sleep and when you wake up they give you lots of jello and ice cream. It's a piece of cake!"
To Those of Us Who Have Children in Our Lives...
Whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students, here is something to make you chuckle.
Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children.
After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was "DON'T!"
Kid Fact: No matter how many times you ask Mom for a new toy and she says no, there's always a solution with Dad! - Submitted by Paula L. Clair
While on vacation with her family in Montana, a mother drove her van past a church in a small town. She pointed to it and, told the children that it was the First Baptist Church. "It must be a franchise," her eight-year-old son said. "We've got one of those in our town too."
Three Little Pigs
One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class. She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home.
She read, "...And so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said, 'Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build my house?'"
The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that man said?"
One little boy raised his hand and said, "I know! He said, 'Holy *&%! A talking pig!'"
The teacher was unable to teach for the next ten minutes.
Things I've Learned From My Children
- A king-size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sqare-foot house 4 inches deep.
- If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
- A three year old's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
- If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a superman cape. It is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20-foot room.
Spank Him Again
An old county doctor went way out to the boondocks to deliver a baby. It was so far out that there was no electricity. When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the laboring mother and her 5-year-old child.
The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern high so he could see while he helped the woman deliver the baby.
The child did so, the mother pushed, and after a little while, the doctor lifted the new born baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take his first breath.
"Spank him again," the child said. "He shouldn't have crawled up there in the first place!!"
Sorry I'm Late Mom
Late one Saturday evening, I was awakened by the ringing of my phone. In a sleepy grumpy voice I said hello. The party on the other end of the line paused for a moment before rushing breathlessly into a lengthy speech.
"Mom, this is Susan and I'm sorry I woke you up, but I had to call because I'm going to be a little late getting home. See, Dad's car has a flat but it's not my fault. Honest! I don't know what happened. The tire just went flat while we were inside the theater. Please don't be mad, okay?"

Johnny replied, "Rectum??!! Heck yes it rectum, it KILLED 'em!"

The neighbor was concerned, "That's an awfully big hole for a goldfish, isn't it?"

Upon picking my daughter up from her first day of school, I was amused to see all the children with their backpacks strapped in front of them.
