So many funny e-mails come along, it would be fun to share them all. This one came from Carol Southard in Oklahoma.
T.L’s Favorite Animal:
Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.”
She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right because everyone else laughed.
My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much.
I do too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal’s office. I told him what happened and he laughed too. Then, he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class, my teacher asked me what my favorite LIVE animal was.
I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.
She sent me back to the principal’s office. He laughed and told me not to do it again.
I don’t understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am.
Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admire most.
I told her, “Colonel Sanders.” Guess where I am now.
Throughout the days of Lent, I have played Rosie Conroy’s CD, “He Died For Me.” The refrain and melody are by Rosie, the vocal is by Colleen Raye and the scripture verses are from Isaiah! It is so beautiful, and such a reminder of the whole reason for Easter and the resurrection of Jesus. All for us. Thank you, Rosie.
Now from the sublime to the ridiculous!
