Laughter is the Best Medicine

A Preacher was explaining that he must move on to a larger congregation that will pay him more. There is a hush within the congregation. No one wanted him to leave. Joe Smith, who owns several car dealerships in the City, stands up and proclaims, 'If the Preacher stays, I will provide him with a new Cadillac every year, and his wife with a Honda mini-van to transport their children!' The congregation sighs in relief, and applauds.

Sam Brown, a successful entrepreneur and investor, stands and says, 'If the Preacher will stay on here I'll personally double his salary and also establish a foundation to guarantee the college education of all his children!' More sighs and loud applause.

Sadie Jones, age 88, stands and announces with a smile, 'If the Preacher stays ... I will give him sex!' There is total silence. The Preacher, blushing, asks, 'Mrs. Jones, whatever possessed you to say that?'

Sadie's 90-year-old husband, Jake, is now trying to hide, holding his forehead with the palm of his hand and shaking his head from side to side, while his wife replies, 'Well, I just asked my husband how we could help and he said ... 'Screw the Preacher!'

Isn't senility wonderful? Look at the things you can say and get away with at menopause and beyond?

OMG! That is so funny!

My question is - after that GENEROUS offer - did he stay?

I was in a church once where they were taking up a special collection to buy a plane ticket to send our pastor overseas. One of the deacons said he would contribute only if it was one-way!

I'm not sure which is funnier, this story or Pam's add-on about giving the preacher a one-way ticket. I love these kinds of stories. My favorite jokes of this kind are the priest, rabbi, and minister ones.
