Two Irish nuns have just arrived in USA by boat, and one says to the other,
"I hear that the people in this country actually eat dogs." "Odd," her companion replies, "but if we shall live in America , we
might as well do as the Americans do."
As they sit, they hear a push cart vendor yelling, "Hot Dogs, get your
dogs here," and they both walk towards the hot dog cart.
"Two dogs, please!," says one. The vendor is very pleased to oblige,
wraps both hot dogs in foil and hands them over.
Excited, the nuns hurry to a bench and begin to unwrap their 'dogs.'
The mother superior is first to open hers.
She begins to blush, and then after staring at it for a moment, leans to
the other Nun and in a soft brogue whispers.
"What part did you get?"
In Jerusalem , a female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man
who had been going to the Wailing Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a
long, long time, so she went to check it out.
She went to the Wailing Wall and there he was.
She watched him pray, and after about 45 minutes when he turned to
leave, she approached him for an interview.
"I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. Sir, how long have you been coming to the
wall and praying?"
"For about 60 years."
"60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?"
"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray
for all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up in
safety and friendship."
The small girl was allowed to stay up for the start of her parent's dinner party with her mothers friends and as a treat was given the chance to say Grace. "But I don't know what to say" she whispered nervously to her mother.
Her mother helped her out....
"Just say what Daddy said before breakfast this morning.
You remember, 'Oh God....."
"Oh yes, I remember now," said the little girl,
"Oh God, do we have to have those boring old farts around for dinner tonight?"
