After Giving a Sermon

The Baptist preacher just finished his sermon for the day and proceeded toward the back of the church for his usual greetings and handshaking as the congregation left the church. After shaking a few adult hands he came upon the seven-year-old son of one of the Deacons of the church.

“Good morning, Jonathan,” the preacher said as he reached out to shake Jonathan’s hand.

As he was doing so he felt something in the palm of Jonathan’s hand. “What’s this?” the preacher asked.

“Money,” said Jonathan with a big smile on his face, “It’s for you!”

“I don’t want to take your money, Jonathan,” the preacher answered.

“I want you to have it,” said Jonathan. After a short pause Jonathan continued, “My daddy says you’re the poorest preacher we ever had and I want to help you.”

Surprise Visit

The owner of a large factory decided to make a surprise visit and check up on his staff.
Walking through the plant, he noticed a young man leaning against a post.

Just how much are you being paid?” said the owner.

“Three hundred bucks a week,” replied the young man.

Taking a wad of bills out of his pocket, the owner slapped $300 into the boy’s hand
and said, “Here’s a week’s pay, now get out of here and don’t come back!”

Turning to one of the supervisors, he said, “How long has that kid been here anyway?”

“He doesn’t work here” said the supervisor. “He was delivering pizza!”

A Visit to the Barber

A man and a little boy entered a barbershop together. After the man received the full treatment – shave, shampoo, manicure, haircut, etc. – he placed the boy in the chair.

“I’m goin’ to buy a green tie to wear for the parade,” he said. “I’ll be back in a few minutes.”

When the boy’s haircut was completed and the man still hadn’t returned, the barber said, “Looks like your daddy’s forgotten all about you.”

“That wasn’t my daddy,” said the boy. “He just walked up, took me by the hand and said, ‘Come on, son, we’re gonna get a free haircut!'”

In Your Dreams

On the morning of her birthday, a woman told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond necklace. What do you think it means?”
“Maybe you’ll find out tonight,” he said.
That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. She ripped off the wrapping paper and found a book titled, The Meaning of Dreams.
