Pretty Good Jokes

Religious Jokes
There was a minister who wife was expecting a baby. The minister went to the congregation and asked for a pay increase. After much consideration and discussion, they passed a rule that when the minister's family expanded, so would his pay check. After his fifth child, this started to get expensive. The congregation decided to hold a meeting again to discuss the minister's pay situation. There was much bickering. Finally, the minister declared, "having children is an act of God." In a back of the room, a wizen family man stood up, and said, "snow and rain are also
'acts of God,' but when we have too much, we wear rubbers!"

—Charlie Kenyon, Freeland, Michigan
