Laugh of the Week
This past week in our Bible Class, we covered the topic of lying. Every now and then, there will be a joke in the curriculum. We thought that you would enjoy this one.
Give Him the Dog
A Minister was walking down the street when he came upon a group of about a dozen boys, all of them between 10 and 12 years of age.
One of the boys replied, “This dog is just an old neighborhood stray. We all want him, but only one of us can take him home. So we’ve decided that whichever one of us can tell the biggest lie will get to keep the dog.”
Of course, the reverend was taken aback. “You boys shouldn’t be having a contest telling lies!” he exclaimed. He then launched into a ten minute sermon against lying, beginning, “Don’t you boys know it’s a sin to lie,” and ending with, “Why, when I was your age, I never told a lie.”
There was dead silence for about a minute. Just as the reverend was beginning to think he’d gotten through to them, the smallest boy gave a deep sigh and said, “All right, give him the dog.”
