An 80 year old couple were having problems remembering things, so they decided to go to their doctor to get checked out to make sure nothing was wrong with them.
When they arrived at the doctors, they explained to the doctor about the problems they were having with their memory. After checking the couple out, the doc’ said they were physically OK but might want to start writing things down and make notes to help them to remember things. They thanked the doctor and left.
Later that night, while watching TV, the man got up from his chair and his wife asked, ‘Where are you going?’
He replied, ‘To the kitchen.’
She asked, ‘Will you get me a bowl of ice-cream?’
He replied, ‘Sure.’
She then asked him, ‘Don’t you think you should write it down so that you can remember it?’
He said, ‘No, I can remember that.’
She then said, ‘Well I would also like some strawberries. You had better write it down because I know you’ll forget that.’
He said, ‘I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice-cream with strawberries.’
She replied, ‘I would also like some whipped cream on the top. I know you’ll forget that, so you had better write it down.’
With irritation in his voice, he said, ‘I don’t need to write that down! I can remember that!’
He then stormed off into the kitchen.
After about 20 minutes, he returned from the kitchen and handed her a plate of bacon and eggs. She stared at the plate for a moment and said angrily:

‘I TOLD you to write it down! You have forgotten my toast!’


This joke is from ever witty Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

The Archbishop was speaking when a baby began crying. The mother stood up to carry her baby out.

The Archbishop said: Madam, the child is not bothering me.
The mother said: No, you’re bothering the child.



There was a little lad who had to start school .

His parents didn’t have any particular religious beliefs , but they still sent him to the Church of England school…it just happened to be the nearest .

On the first day home from school the lad was whinging and crying …like some lads do .

This went on for a week , and his mum and dad had to put up with a weekend of tantrums .

Monday came , and the lad went off to school…so they thought .

On Tuesday they received a message from the school …" Why was Bobby absent from school yesterday ? "…of course , the little monkey had been playing truant .

Mum and dad weren’t at all happy , so they got Bobby into the nearby Methodist school .

He was there a week , and there seemed to be no problems .

Another week went by…still no problems .

But on the Wednesday of the third week they received a message from school…" Why was Bobby not in school on Monday and Tuesday ? " …truanting again .

Bobby said , " I just hate schools …I never , ever want to go again . "

Mum and dad were at their wit’s end . So they opted for the local Catholic school .

Screaming and shouting , they had to drag him there , but they got him inside eventually

A week went by…no sign of trouble . A second week went by…no messages from school .

At the end a month without problems mum and dad asked Bobby ," Well , son , you seem to like it at the Catholic school . Are you enjoying it ? "

Bobby stood silent …grimaced …shook his head …and then blurted out , " I just hate it , but the last guy who tried to get out from there is still nailed to the classroom wall . And I ain’t gonna end up like him ! "

The Texas Aggie platoon leader was ordered to form a firing squad.

“Everybody!” he hollered; " Get in a circle!"

For others, it meant that a certain laundry detergent had the preference of some Church officials.
