This is a true story. A couple that I am remotely acquainted with has a son, now in his 20's, who was born with Down Syndrome. It seems that the couple left the son at home alone while they were running some errands. Suddenly their cell phone rang and a very excited son told his parents that he had captured a troll and locked it in his bedroom. After a very short time because they could not make any sense out of what the kid was saying they decided they better go home and see what was going on. Upon their arrival they found that his bedroom door was tied shut from the outside and the son had piled furniture in front of his door effectively barricading it. They removed the furniture and opened the door. They found a very shaken and rattled dwarf standing in the room. He quickly produced identification and explained that it was his first day on the job as a census worker. You can't make this stuff up...

The old Vaudeville acts, Pat. They were really funny. The schtick of George Burns and Gracie Allen, Hennie Youngman, Alan King etc. will never be duplicated. One of my favorites was when one of them after seeing a ballet; remarked: " I don't understand why they make those girls dance on their toes. They ahould just hire taller girls???" George Burns well into his 90's made the statement: "I can't die. I am booked." Very funny stuff...

Bill---I don't think anyone is offended so far:  Pease do not remove this blog unless your life is threatened!!!!! 

 

Now on to religion, Pat. The best business in the world. You pay for it while you are here and get delivery after you die. Never a disatisfied customer. No complaints and no returns. Most religions even have salesmen in the form of missionaries; etc. Religion may be as good a product as money itself. This has been a fun thread but as you said it is sure to offend someone so I will take it down at some point. Glad you all had a good laugh...

 


Of course,religion is the best business in the world.  And, usually, tax-free!!!!  Irony, irony, irony....  But the source of so much humor---and I hope I'm not being so cryptic that I make no sense....just the thoughts from me that the latest posts here have engendered:  We would be seriously deprived humor-wise if religion were to disappear.  We need it!!!  Especially Judaism.  No religion ever present on this earth has contributed as much humor to our USA culture than Judaism. 

 

Think Leo Rosten, and expand that bubble one hundred-fold.  Add to that the majority of the best comics we've had from the USA in the last 100 years.  One example---where would our USA humor be if it didn't have Groucho Marx' humor  worked so eloquently into the fabric of American humor?

 

If there is such a thing as American humor, then we have to acknowledge that the roots of that humor lie primarily in Vaudeville...and so many of the Vaudevillians were Jewish comics.

 

So...if I'm still following the point I started out to make here...[I might not be....I'm old....got a lot of CRS....often go off track....(ha, get away with that excuse so easily since I hit 65)] 

 

Where the hell was I....... Oh, yes.  We need religions, all religions, because they inspire so much humor......

 

As I said somewhere last night.

 

"Say 'goodnight,' Gracie.

 

And Gracie says:  "Goodnight, Gracie," ...................

 

Pat.

LOL CG. I did try to verify the story through a mutual friend who knows the people very well, but only after Brown brought up the Jehova's Witness version. My friend was as skeptical as you. But you are right. I should have began with "I am not sure if this story is really true."  But really what difference does it make??? It was never meant to be a statement of fact. I just posted it for a little entertainment and a good laugh. True or false; it is a funny story and it got me reminiscing about my post college days. University of Alabama 1966. The Jehovah's Witness story is absolutely true. I was really there for that one and like you said... I have credibility...

Quoting billzeke

Just out of curiosity what part did the Jahova's Witness play??? LOL. Now for a JW story. Many years ago when I first graduated from college I lived with 3 of my college roomates in a very unusual apartment in NE Atlanta. This place was actually two apartments with the wall that should have separated the units removed. It was huge. Had 2 kitchens, 2 living room, 2 dining rooms, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, a balcony on one side and an enclosed patio on the other. It also had 2 front doors facing each other. Herman, a Great Pyranees which is a huge shaggy white dog (picture a shaggy white St. Bernard) also lived there. Much too early one morning after a long night of partying there was a knock on the front door. A grumpy, hung-over me answered and out side were a few Jehovah's Witnesses trying to hand me some literature. I grumbled some unpleasantry; Herman came bounding over; scaring the bejeezus out of them and I slammed the door in their faces. 30 seconds later they unknowingly knocked on our other front door and Herman and I answered it. You should have seen the look on their faces. I think they lost all faith in God at that point. LOLOL. Like I said you can't make this stuff up...


This, Bill, is a stitch.  And....I apologize in advance to anyone I might offend with this post...JMO.

 

 

 

Jehovah's Witnesses are pushy, thoughtless, narcissistic loons.  Do not give up.  I most emphatically do not believe in proselytizing, I don't care what the religion is...

 

 

 

[I once had a pair of Jehovah's Witnesses hit my door when I was home sick with a very bad bout of flu.  Fever of 103+.  Did they care about that when I told them I couldn't deal with them now?  No!!!!!!  Did they want to help me with my illness?  Only if I would take their literature, listen to a lecture, and contribute money to their cause.....then they would pray for me and my illness would go away...."magically."  Good grief......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]

 

 

 

What else is any breed of Christianity for but caring for your fellow man, or woman, who is suffering??????  Tunnel vision on these folks.  Tunnel vision for sure. 

 

 

 

So, I'm still laughing at this blog.  Although, me suspects it's been hijacked a bit....what was the original point?  Oh, yeah....you yourself changed it.  

 

 

 

Anyway....I love Herman.  And....what a deliciously wonderful, post-grad apartment you must have had!!!!  I bet you'll never stop laughing about the times you had there.

 

 

 

Thanks for the fun, Bill.  Your attitude toward life is....well.....would that all of us could adopt it.  I'm sure we'd all benefit from that adoption greatly.

 

 

 

Pat

I heard someone say the same thing about a jehovah witness:)

I can't help laughing--though I feel slightly guilty for doing so.  I hope the son and the census taker were able to have a good laugh about it once dwarfism was explained to the son.  And I hope the dwarf found a better job that will win him a lot more friends than being a census taker will.
