Tuesday Giggles and Grins!!

A man boarded a plane with Eight kids.

After they got settled in their seats a woman sitting
 

across the aisle from him leaned over to him and asked,

"Are all of those kids yours?"

He replied, "No Ma'am, I work for a condom company. These are customer complaints."
 

And then there is this story!!
 
Tom's Scrotum

 
The best story of the year doesn't give the proper praise and credit for this painful but understandable story as told by a loving  wife......
The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express  praise for answered prayers.
Suzy Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise report.  Two months ago, my husband, Tom had a terrible bike  accident and his scrotum was completely crushed.  The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him."
You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they  imagined the pain that poor Tom must have experienced.
"Tom was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every  move caused him terrible pain.  We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together  the crushed remnants of Tom's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold  it in place."
Again, the men in the congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they  imagined the horrible surgery performed on Tom.
"Now", she announced in a quivering voice, "thank the Lord, Tom is out  of hospital and the doctors say that with time his scrotum should  recover completely."
All the men sighed with unified relief.  The pastor rose and  tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say.
A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium.  He said, "I'm Tom Smith."  The entire congregation held their breath.  "I just want to  tell my wife the word is sternum."

Thanks for the good humor! I also like your Our World post, and will add this anecdote, a friend likes to use it as part of his motivational speech at fundraiserss: "Give it up, folks. You will never see an armored car driving behind a hearse."

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
