• Prayers Of Children

    From Daryl Stout@1:2320/33 to All on Wed Jan 19 00:04:39 2022
    One little girl began her prayer like this: "Our Father, who
    are in heaven, hello! What be Thy name?"

    A boy who thought he knew the answer to that question, prayed,
    "Our Father, who art in heaven, Harold be Thy name."

    The prayer of another boy went like this: "Our Father who art
    in heaven, Hollywood be Thy name."

    A girl whose visiting uncle was a horse player bowed her head
    with a plea that God "give us this day our daily double."

    A five-year-old girl who was trying to cope with Sunday School
    and kindergarten at the same time came up with this charming
    blend of Church and State: "Give us this day our daily bread,
    and liberty and justice for all."

    Another kindergarten child asked God to "give us this day our
    jelly bread."

    Then there was the little boy who prayed, "Forgive us our
    dentists, as we forgive our dentists."

    Another boy pleaded, "Lead us not into creation."

    Or the farmer's boy who said, "Deliver us from weevils."

    Another boy prayed to God to "deliver us from eagles."

    And a boy climaxed his prayer like this: "For thine is the
    kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever, Amen
    and F.M."

    One little boy, upon hearing about "the virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus," raised his hand during service & asked, "Is that Round John Virgin, or the King James Virgin?"

    And a boy climaxed his prayer like this: "For thine is the
    kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever, Amen
    and F.M."

    I like this one!

    George,

    *Howard

    It has that, but it's also "Hark The Harold Angels Sing". <G>

    One little boy, upon hearing about "the virgin Mary, the mother of
    Jesus," raised his hand during service & asked, "Is that Round John Virgin, or the King James Virgin?"

    There you go.

    The one I like was the plaque on the wall, and the little boy asked
    the pastor what it was for. The preacher said "it's in honor of those
    who died in the service" (military).

    But, the little boy, unaware of that, asked "was it in the morning
    or evening service??". <G>

    ... I'm speeding, because I have to go poop!!

    I saw that one recycled into a Jewish joke, but inelegantly,m so I rewrote the key parts & sent it back to that person -- they hadn't even noticed, but appreciated the subtleties once pointed out. . .

    Lots of jokes g et conveted lazily -- just a simple word substitution for the main characters, but they miss out on the pronouns throughout -- When I conmvert a joke (& I do, on occasion, to make it topiocal or to poke fun at a mate), I do the original writer the justice of maintaining he perspectives properly throughout. . . (pronoun genders, perspectives, time tenses, etc.)

    It's an artform, not a hackjob. .

    & I, being, the bishop of ROM, take it seriously. . .

    This one's copy & paste, unfortunately, but it fulfils my standards of funny -- YMMV, FWIW, IMHO, etc.

    Tomorrow, NBC premieres the latest entry in (the decline of Western Civilization--this is in strikeout font) Reality TV genre, The Biggest Loser in which some people do something to win some money or maybe something else. ItĘs gonna be awesomełor something.
    Since most TV critics are filing their reviews with their editors right about now, I thought IĘd offer them some help with their inevitable shitty puns and fat jokes. Feel free to use any of the following phrases in your articles or headlines, or um, become a better writer:

    [back to Cyberpope:]
    Any & All work for me. . .

    RealityTV is everything but --oh, it's on TV, I'll give it that & only that. . .
    Everyone gets to melt their brains in their own way -- I'm OG (new school "old school") & do it the oprganic way -- with airplane glue. . .

    Now the news is classified "realityTV" which puts it on equal standing with Honey fleeping BooBoo & the KardASShians. That's fair, based on how real the end product is these days -- I miss Walter (That's "Mr. Cronkite" to you younguns)

    Speaking of the decline of CBS. . .

    Coming this fall to CBS, a new sitcom about a pair of actresses living in the 17th Century...
    ItĘs called ō2 Baroque Girlsö.

    CBS News anchor just nailed a dad joke.
    "NASA announced today that it has space for new astronauts."

    My dad's regular CBS Evening News joke... "Would you rather be Dan, or Dan Rather?"

    I... I don't even know.

    George,

    I saw that one recycled into a Jewish joke, but inelegantly,m so I
    rewrote the key parts & sent it back to that person -- they hadn't
    even noticed, but appreciated the subtleties once pointed out. . .

    Toward the end of the year, my late wife and I would pull a friends
    chain, telling them "we wren't going to have sex for the rest of the
    year" (it was like Dec. 29). We waited to observe them getting this horrid
    look on their faces...then when they realized what day it was, it was like
    "Oh, [expletive]!!" <G>.

    It's an artform, not a hackjob. .

    And, with puns, not everyone appreciates the humor. To me, the beauty of
    a pun is in the groan of the recipient.

    This one's copy & paste, unfortunately, but it fulfils my standards of funny -- YMMV, FWIW, IMHO, etc.

    Without acronyms, things would be much longer. In the meteorological discussions, there are a lot of abbreviations and acronyms they use.
    I have a weather glossary door online, with a bunch of that.

    fat jokes. Feel free to use any of the following phrases in your
    articles or headlines, or um, become a better writer:

    I'm in one of my nether moods, being doped up right now...so, I'm just cutting up...I don't mean to offend anyone, so my apologies in advance.

    ! Fat Tuesday

    Add an R, and that's when you can go crazy on beans and legumes...right before Potty Gras. <G>

    ! Weighty Matter

    Never mind a pound of flesh.

    ! Light-Weight Entertainment

    Midget movies??

    ! Thick as Thieves

    There are a lot of them in the RPG doors (L.O.R.D., Gangland Wars, etc.).

    ! Chubby-Hubby

    Building up insulation for the winter.

    ! The Weight Is Over

    ...what the scale can hold -- sounds like Garfield The Cat after eating
    too much pizza and lasagna. <G>

    ! Big Men and Women on Campus

    If they do a cannonball into the pool, that'll soak everyone nearby.

    ! Fat of the Land

    Sounds like the blooper where the formerly obese woman would tell that
    her diet helped her lose all the fat...and added "she will bring samples".

    ! Big, Fat Obnoxious [Anything]

    Size-ist. :P

    ! Big, Fat Hit

    Those chest bumps hurt!!

    ! Weighed Down

    No wonder I feel like there's an anvil out of my butt!!

    ! Heavy/Meta

    Facebook became Meta, and rumor has it where Twitter will become
    Mucil. So, we'll be on Metamucil every day. <G>

    ! Well-Rounded Cast

    [sung to "Happy Birthday"]: May you get plastered, you poor bad boy... <G>

    ! Fatty Ass-heads

    If it was holes, they'd be arrested for 500 pounds of crack. :P

    ! Must Eat TV

    On some of those cooking shows, I wish I could graze on what was
    being shown or prepared. My late wife and I would watch Emeril
    Lagasse LIVE on The Food Network (I don't think that show is on,
    anymore)...and one day, Paula Deen was on there doing a southern
    style breakfast.

    We're talking eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, pork chops, biscuits with
    butter, sausage gravy, hash browns, tomato slices, toast, jelly,
    pancakes, syrup, etc. [We will now pause 3 minutes for drooling <G>].

    Well, she was using this tenderizer to make the pork chops to
    where they'd "melt in your mouth". In describing the tool, she said
    "I use this to beat my meat with!!" <G>.

    That's a euphemism for masturbation, and the entire studio audience
    was howling with laughter. Emeril had this horrified look on his face,
    and said "Don't even go there!!". The black guy on the drums in the
    band, was about to spit his teeth out of his mouth!! <BG>.

    Some days, they'd be preparing something, and all of a sudden, my
    wife let out this pitiful wail, like was in pain. I asked her what
    was wrong, and she lamented "He just ruined it!!". <G>

    ! Hungry for Ratings

    That's the way it always has been.

    ! Fat Chance

    That happened at my late wife's church years ago. It was an offshoot
    of "The Worldwide Church Of God", known as "The Community Church Of God".
    They didn't have a "Sunday School", per se...but they had a potluck
    every other Sunday after church. Well, with any organization, sacred or secular, at times, you have to conduct "a business meeting...and you
    know, to most folks, they avoid attending those like the plague. Well,
    as luck would have it, the meeting ran way overtime, and the church
    service was LATE starting. The guy who was leading the music that
    Sunday (who was best man at my wedding), said "Since we got started so
    late, I'm sure our preacher will be considerate, and cut his sermon
    short". Without missing a beat, the pastor said "Fat Chance!!". It
    brought the house down in raucous laughter, and the look on that guy's
    face was absolutely priceless!! <G>

    ! Battle of the Bulge

    I have 3 ailments:

    1) Furniture Disease - my chest is into my drawers
    2) Dunlop Disease - my belly done lopped over my belt
    3) Dickeydo Disease - my belly hangs out more than my dickey do

    ! Thin Premise

    Only in a House Of Mirrors.

    ! Fat Sells

    Got to have a shed for your tool.

    ! Big Competition

    Sounds like the government and corruption.

    ! Chubby Reign

    Never mind a massive monarch.

    ! Waist of Airtime

    A waist is a terrible thing to mind.

    ! Devouring the Competition

    Sounds like the July Coney Island Hot Dog Battle.

    ! Chewing the Scenery

    Your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

    ! Broad Humor

    Only when it applies to blondes. <G>

    ! The Thickest Link

    It might not break as easy.

    ! Livin' Large

    Eat to live...not live to eat.

    ! Large and in Charge

    I hope the chair is strong enough.

    ! Wide Margin

    For the fat fonts. <G>

    ! Fat of the Land

    There'll be a harvest of blubber this year.

    ! Meaty

    I prefer meat when I eat...there is an expression that my late
    grandfather used, and my late Mom remembered it, but with both
    of them gone now, I have forgotten it.

    ! Morbidly [Anything]

    I have a BMI calculator on my phone...it says I'm nearly 90
    pounds overweight. Well, getting it off is easier said than done.

    ! Gut-Busting

    Only when they're doing gastric bypass surgery. But, there's
    good and bad with that.

    ! Phat

    For Phideaux, who has had too many treats.

    Now the news is classified "realityTV" which puts it on equal standing with Honey fleeping BooBoo & the KardASShians. That's fair, based on
    how real the end product is these days -- I miss Walter (That's "Mr. Cronkite" to you younguns)

    And, that's the way it is. <G>

    Speaking of the decline of CBS. . .

    I prefer the meteorological acronym...CBS stands for cumulonimbus's
    (several thunderstorms together, as it a line). Our tornado season will
    be here soon enough (Sigh!).

    ... If you think everything's OK, you've overlooked something.

    I've used that one -- generally posting publically on a BBS that I plan to stay offline for the rest of the year (panic ensued with dozens of other members crying, "noooooo!" then dozens of others saying "calm down & look at the date he posted that!")

    You know it! A groan because it's sneaky, but should have been obvious are my favourites, but there's also0 the "Oh, that's so simple as to be lame" groans & I don't count those ones; I just say, "Hey, hey only get worse! Hold your hand out if you want to redeem my double yor money back guarantee"

    I do nothing; they ask where is it; I say look, I even gave you triple for your troubles. . .

    cutting up...I don't mean to offend anyone, so my apologies in advance.

    If anyone enters a PG-rated jokes echo or forum, & gets offended, it's their own damned fault!

    My mom taught me to not take tghings that don't belong to me, so if I see an Offense. . .

    ! Fat Tuesday
    Add an R, and that's when you can go crazy on beans and legumes...right

    College Greek houses like their 5-bean chili, do they?

    I taught my wife to make chili the way I like it: no beans -- just lots of beef & lots of hot peppers (chilis, habanero, jalapenos, dried cayenne(by the 1/3 cupful) & one Anaheim to sweeten it up a tad (instead of whole tomatoes)

    Feel the burn!

    ! Light-Weight Entertainment
    Midget movies??

    Midget bowling? (where they throw the midget down the lane)

    ! Chubby-Hubby
    Building up insulation for the winter.

    That's been my story & I'm sticking to it. . .

    ! The Weight Is Over
    ...what the scale can hold -- sounds like Garfield The Cat after eating
    too much pizza and lasagna. <G>

    One guy was being harangued by a large Karen for taking too long, he loked her dead in the eye & said, quite sincerely, "I'm sorry for your weight."

    ! Big Men and Women on Campus
    If they do a cannonball into the pool, that'll soak everyone nearby.

    Is there another way to get into the pool?

    ! Fat of the Land
    Sounds like the blooper where the formerly obese woman would tell that
    her diet helped her lose all the fat...and added "she will bring samples".

    One of those Boot Camp "Last 65 pounds" shows starts by loading a table with pounds of lard & a huge mound of white sugar, saying, "That's how much fat & sugar you ate last week."

    That's an eye-opener! (so was the smell of bacon cooking, apparently)

    ! Big, Fat Hit
    Those chest bumps hurt!!

    That's what SHE said! (when I pinched them) (remember that time Peanut was saying that over & over again to everything Jeff-fa-fa said?)

    Facebook became Meta, and rumor has it where Twitter will become
    Mucil. So, we'll be on Metamucil every day. <G>

    I've cut back on my metamucil for a bit -- sdtuff's expensive!

    On some of those cooking shows, I wish I could graze on what was
    being shown or prepared. My late wife and I would watch Emeril
    Lagasse

    Never sesen him -- I like Guy's Grocery Games, & his Diners, Drive-insd, & Dives; but my fave, by far, is Carnival Eats! (I want EVERYTHING that gut tries!)

    wife let out this pitiful wail, like was in pain. I asked her what
    was wrong, and she lamented "He just ruined it!!". <G>

    She grew up learning "proper suthe'n cooking"?

    That happened at my late wife's church years ago. It was an offshoot
    of "The Worldwide Church Of God", known as "The Community Church Of God". They didn't have a "Sunday School", per se...but they had a potluck

    No other response I'd expect from most pastors -- they get the spotlight once a week, & they WILL enjoy the time!

    ! Battle of the Bulge
    I have 3 ailments:
    1) Furniture Disease - my chest is into my drawers
    2) Dunlop Disease - my belly done lopped over my belt
    3) Dickeydo Disease - my belly hangs out more than my dickey do

    Been there. . . working on fixing these & doing quite well, I've dropped 10 BMI points this past year, since April. ..

    ! Fat Sells
    Got to have a shed for your tool.

    That's my story, too!

    A waist is a terrible thing to mind.

    My doc told me to watch my waist, so I put it right out front where I can easily keep an eye on it. . .

    ! Devouring the Competition
    Sounds like the July Coney Island Hot Dog Battle.

    My son's dream is to win that one day. . .

    Eat to live...not live to eat.

    I do both. . .

    ! Large and in Charge
    I hope the chair is strong enough.

    Not the La-Z Boy Lift-Recliner I recently bought, I found out -- the max was 50# below my weight :( It doesn't operate so well now, forcing me to do my own lifting to get my carcass out & moving (sucks when I'm trying to answer Natrure's Holler)

    ! Fat of the Land
    There'll be a harvest of blubber this year.

    This phrase is from the Bible -- it & every use of "fat" in the Bible is to mean "the best & richest"

    I have a BMI calculator on my phone...it says I'm nearly 90
    pounds overweight. Well, getting it off is easier said than done.

    What kind of phone do you have? I'll give you the directions to get that app off your phone quite easily! *G*

    ! Gut-Busting
    Only when they're doing gastric bypass surgery. But, there's
    good and bad with that.

    I've had friends experience both results (very good & very bad)

    how real the end product is these days -- I miss Walter (That's "Mr.
    Cronkite" to you younguns)
    And, that's the way it is. <G>

    There you go. . . I only caught the tail-end of his career, usually only when quoted on our local news that my dad watched faithfully every night at 6pm. . .

    I prefer the meteorological acronym...CBS stands for cumulonimbus's

    Shouldn't it be cumulonimbi for the plural?

    (several thunderstorms together, as it a line). Our tornado season will
    be here soon enough (Sigh!).

    Tell every married man in Tornado Alley to refuse "mouth hugs" from their girlfriends, as tornado warnings & that action definitely suggest that someone is going to lose a house!

    I have a buddy who was flying out today and he was looking at a weather map trying to layout his flight path. But he was frustratingly listing all of the bad weather conditions that he has to avoid along the way.

    Him: "Dang, there's some cumulonimbus clouds over there. This part is going to be really turbulent. And there's icing!"

    Me: "Wait, why don't you like icing? That's what makes cake so tasty!" Him: stares at me intensely

    Rain Rain Go Away
    That's what all my haters say.
    -cumulonimbus clouds probably

    George,

    I've used that one -- generally posting publically on a BBS that I plan
    to stay offline for the rest of the year (panic ensued with dozens of other members crying, "noooooo!" then dozens of others saying "calm
    down & look at the date he posted that!")

    The rest of the year has a bit more bite than the rest of the month. With
    the season, is it meteorological or solar??

    I do my part to keep y'all on your toes!

    Only if you're into ballet. <G>

    You know it! A groan because it's sneaky, but should have been obvious
    are my favourites, but there's also0 the "Oh, that's so simple as to
    be lame" groans & I don't count those ones; I just say, "Hey, hey only
    get worse! Hold your hand out if you want to redeem my double yor
    money back guarantee"

    I had gone to the World Championship Pun-Off in Austin, Texas years ago
    (I can't afford to do that now). It was where the humor was drier than the Sahara. There were 2 competitions -- not sure which was more difficult.

    1) Punniest Of Show - contestants had 60 to 90 seconds to read a skit or
    do a routine. It could have one pun at the end, or be full of them. At 90 seconds, a bell would ring, and points would be deducted. At 2 minutes, a second bell would ring, and the contestant was disqualified.

    2) High Lies And Low Puns - 2 contestants would go head to head (that's
    gonna leave a mark <G>), with a pun category. They knew the categories in advance, but didn't know until they got up there, which one they'd be under. One would have 5 seconds to make a pun, and the other one would have to do likewise...but you couldn't use the same pun twice. Missing the 5 seconds
    deal, or using the same one twice, got you disqualified.

    If anyone enters a PG-rated jokes echo or forum, & gets offended, it's their own damned fault!

    So many folks nowadays are just prudes. While it'd be nice to have
    everything squeaky clean, life's just not that way. A few werty derds
    at times are OK, but not to where it's every other word. Then, you have
    these women who think you get pregnant by osmosis.

    College Greek houses like their 5-bean chili, do they?

    Weapons of M'ass Destruction.

    Feel the burn!

    Every time you pee. <G>

    Midget bowling? (where they throw the midget down the lane)

    Three strikes and the turkey is out.

    Is there another way to get into the pool?

    Very carefully.

    That's what SHE said! (when I pinched them) (remember that time Peanut
    was saying that over & over again to everything Jeff-fa-fa said?)

    In Peanut's Password Panic, where Jeff changed all the wi-fi passwords,
    he talks about guys and girls names with the unneeded letter. Then, when
    he got to the passwords, it was Jeff's version of the classic "Who's On
    First?" routine.

    I've cut back on my metamucil for a bit -- stuff's expensive!

    I started eating wheat bread and fig bars...works for me.

    Been there. . . working on fixing these & doing quite well, I've
    dropped 10 BMI points this past year, since April. ..

    I could give another acronym to BMI, but I feel crappy enough
    already.

    My doc told me to watch my waist, so I put it right out front where I
    can easily keep an eye on it. . .

    Exactly!!

    My son's dream is to win that one day. . .

    I've devoured 4 cheese dogs in one meal, but that's enough. And, I eat
    them daintily, taking my time. I don't want the meal coming back for
    seconds. :P

    Not the La-Z Boy Lift-Recliner I recently bought, I found out -- the
    max was 50# below my weight :( It doesn't operate so well now, forcing
    me to do my own lifting to get my carcass out & moving (sucks when I'm trying to answer Natrure's Holler)

    Or like the cartoon where there's this huge hole blown out of the back of
    the recliner chair, with smoke coming out...and the guy's wife says "You
    can't blame that one on the dog!!". <G>

    What kind of phone do you have? I'll give you the directions to get
    that app off your phone quite easily! *G*

    I know how to zap it. I had to reformat the device last week, and then reinstall all the apps.

    There you go. . . I only caught the tail-end of his career, usually
    only when quoted on our local news that my dad watched faithfully
    every night at 6pm. . .

    He was also an amateur radio operator.

    Shouldn't it be cumulonimbi for the plural?

    Maybe cumulonimbi storms?? Or in one comic strip, they referred to
    them as "columbus bimbos".

    Tell every married man in Tornado Alley to refuse "mouth hugs" from
    their girlfriends, as tornado warnings & that action definitely
    suggest that someone is going to lose a house!

    In Arkansas, a tornado and a divorce have the same thing in common.
    Either way, you're going to lose the trailer.

    Me: "Wait, why don't you like icing? That's what makes cake so tasty!" Him: stares at me intensely

    Or in homage to cake topping, Of Thee Icing. <G>

    ... Of course I'm on topic!! What conference is this??!!
