Proverbs 17:22 tells us: A merry heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.
A child asked his father, "How were people born?" His father answered, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on."
The child asked his mother the same question and she answered, "We were monkeys, then we evolved to become like we are now."
The child ran back to his father and said, "You lied to me!" His father replied, "No, your mom was talking about HER side of the family."
A boy asks his father, "Dad, are bugs good to eat?" Dad answers."That's disgusting. Don't talk about things like that over dinner."
After dinner the father asks, "Now, son, what did you want to ask me?" "Oh, nothing," the boy says. "There was a bug in your soup, but now it’s gone."
A husband and wife were driving through Louisiana. As they approached Natchitoches, they started arguing about the pronunciation of the town. They argued back and forth, then they stopped for lunch.
At the counter, the husband asked the waitress, "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are very slowly?"
She leaned over the counter and said, "Burrr-gerrr Kiiing."
