Joke of the Day

A Chassidic rabbi was walking down a Brooklyn street when, suddenly, a strong gust of wind blew his shtreimel off his head. The rabbi ran after his hat, but the wind was so strong it kept blowing his hat farther and farther away. He just couldn’t catch up to it.

A non-Jewish young man, witnessing this event and being more fit than the rabbi, ran after the hat and caught it, just before it was about to end up in a large puddle. The young man handed the hat over to the rabbi. The rabbi was so pleased and grateful that he gave the young man $20, put his hand on the man’s shoulder and blessed him.

The young man was very excited about both the tip and the blessing and decided to take his new found wealth to the Gravesend Racetrack. He bet the entire $20 on the first race he could. After the races, he returned home and recounted his very exciting day to his father. read more

Joke of the Day

Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf.

So…he told the junior priest that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day.
As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away.

This way he knew he wouldn’t accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish.
Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!

At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, “you’re not going to let him get away with this, are you?”

The Lord sighed, and said, “No, I guess not.

Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin,
dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole.

IT WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE!

St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, “why did you let him do that?”
The Lord smiled and replied, “Who’s he going to tell?”

PEACE BE WITH YOU…
