A mother driving her two young boys to a funeral, She tried to prepare them by talking about burial and what we believe happens after death. The boys behaved well during the service. But at the grave site she discovered my explanations weren’t as thorough as I’d thought. In a loud voice, her four-year-old asked, ”Mom?”
”Yes,” the mother whispered.
”What’s in the box?”
A newlywed farmer and his wife were visited by her mother, who immediately demanded an inspection of the place. While they were walking through the
barn, the farmer’s mule suddenly reared up and kicked the mother-in-law in
the head, killing her instantly.
At the funeral service a few days later, the farmer stood near the casket
and greeted folks as they walked by.
The pastor noticed that whenever a
woman would whisper something to the farmer, he would nod his head yes and say something. Whenever a man walked by and whispered to the farmer, he would shake his head no and mumble a reply.
Curious, the pastor later asked the farmer what that was all about.
The farmer replied, ”The women would say, ’What a terrible tragedy’ and I
would nod my head and say, ’Yes, it was.’ The men would ask, ’You wanna
sell that mule?’ and I would shake my head and say, ’Can’t. It’s all booked up for a year.’ ”
A mother and her young son returned home from the grocery store. The boy opened the box of animal crackers and spread them all over the table. ”What are you doing?” his mother asked. ”The box says you can’t eat them is the seal is broken. I’m looking for the seal.”-11+
A man was traveling down a country road when he saw a large group of people outside a house. He stopped and asked a person why the large crowd was there.
A farmer replied, ”Joe’s mule kicked his mother-in-law and she died.”
”Well,” replied the man, ”she must have had a lot of friends.”
”Nope,” said the farmer, ”we all just want to buy his mule.”
