Too funny! It reminds me of going with my Mom to renew her army ID card. The officer on base asked if my step-dad was 100% disabled. He had been dead for two years. Duh!

Need some prayers sent our way. Thanks

These were funny. I don't know if they are true either but weren't they good for a chuckle.

Hey Mac, speaking of great jokes, did you hear the one about the Anglican clergyman who publicly commended sharia law for Britain? He's head of the Church of England!

...I'm honestly not sure if one should laugh or cry. But I'm still glad I'm not in that 'church' anymore.
