Before performing a baptism, the priest approached the young father and said solemnly, "Baptism is a serious step. Are you prepared for it?" "I think so," the man replied. "My wife has made appetizers and we have a caterer coming to provide plenty of cookies and cakes for all of our guests." "I don't mean that," the priest responded. "I mean, are you prepared spiritually?" "Oh, sure," came the reply. "I've got a keg of beer and a case of whiskey."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 27 year old Burnsville, MN fugitive. Sent in by Ramona MN officers chase burglary suspect to WI and back MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Authorities are looking for a man who led officers on a chase from Burnsville, to Wisconsin, to Minneapolis. Burnsville police detectives tried to arrest the 27-year-old man on suspicion of burglary. But the man fled and led Burnsville police north on Interstate 35E. The Minnesota State Patrol joined the chase, following the man to Wisconsin before he drove back to Minnesota and abandoned a stolen Dodge Durango near the University of Minnesota. Authorities tried to end the chase peacefully, and called the man on his cell phone. Burnsville investigators say the man answered the phone saying, ''Dude, I can't talk, I'm being chased by the police.'' ( 2008 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

An obnoxious drunk in a bar keeps hitting on an a lesbian waiting for her date. The drunk just won't take no for an answer. "Tell you what, I'll sleep with you if you can name one thing a man can do for me that my vibrator can't!" the lesbian smirks. The obnoxious drunk thinks for a moment. "Okay, let's see your vibrator buy the next round of drinks!"

Judi was startled to see the nonchalant way John was taking the fact that his lady love was seen with another man. "You said you love her and yet you saw her with another man and you didn't knock the guy down?" "I'm waiting," Jon said. "Waiting for what?" asked Judi. "Waiting to catch her with a smaller guy."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Crockpot for Summer Cooking The summer is a great time to dust off your slow cooker and put it use. Crockpots work well for a variety of recipes: soup, stew, spaghetti, roasts, and more. Just search on your favorite website for crockpot recipes. If heat is a problem, just use it outside or in the garage. Visit ThriftyFun For Crockpot Recipes By Clicking Here http://www.thriftyfun.com/Recipes_Crockpot_833_848.html On a hot, sunny day you can put a crock pot into a barbecue. Not lit, just warmed by the sun! If it is sheltered from the wind, it will get more than hot enough just from the sun. You may have to use small wedge to keep the lid from closing all the way. For windy locations you can throw some bubble-wrap over it. It won't melt, but it will increase the temperature inside the barbecue quite drastically. A barbecue on solar power also works well for slow brewing tea for ice tea. For best results use a wide 3 or 4 quart pyrex pot with a lid. Have FUN!

A preacher retired and moved to the country to enjoy life and practice his hobby of yard work. Needing a lawn mower, he headed into town to buy one. On the way he saw a sign advertising a lawn mower for sale. He stopped at the house and a young lad came out to greet him. The preacher asked about the lawn mower and the kid said it was behind the house. The two went to look at the lawn mower. The engine was sputtering along at idle speed. The preacher increased the speed of the engine and mowed a few strips. Satisfied that the mower would do the job they settled on a price of $25.00. Later in the day, the young lad was riding his bicycle when he spied the preacher pulling on the engine starter rope. The kid stopped and watched for a couple of minutes. He asked, "What's wrong?" The reply came, "I can't get this mower started. Do you know how?" The kid said, "Yep." "Well, how do you do it? Tell me!", the preacher yelled. The kid replied, "You have to cuss it." The preacher rose up indignantly. "Now you listen here. I am a preacher and if I ever did cuss, not saying I have, I've forgotten how to do it after all these years." With a wise look on his face well beyond his years, the kid said, "Preacher, you keep on pulling that rope and it'll all come back to ya."
