Dave took Mary out for a romantic dinner where the conversation turned to the subject of marriage. Dave had been saving for an engagement ring, but he was in graduate school and in dire need of a new computer.
Mary was understanding, telling Dave they had the rest of their lives to get engaged, so he should use his savings to buy a new computer instead.
During dessert, Dave suddenly reached into his pocket and pulled out an engagement ring. Mary was stunned, but after she collected herself, she looked up and prompted, "Well, don't you have something to ask me?"
Dave then got down on bended knee.
"Honey," he said, "will you buy me a new computer?"
At our weekly Bible study, our leader was recapping what we knew about the Epistle to Titus before continuing with the study.
So he asked, "What kind of place was Crete?"
Nobody answered, so he added, "In a geographic sense."
One or two of us answered, but nobody gave the answer he was looking for.
So he said, "I'll give you a clue: it has a lot in common with a much talked about place called Noman."
One of us responded, "Can't say I've heard on Noman."
To which our leader said, "Noman is an island."
