A State Police Officer once received a call from a woman who asked him how to baste a turkey. After a stunned moment, he, being a fairly good cook, described the procedure.
Then he asked, "But why would you call the State Police to find out how to baste a turkey?"
There was only a slight hesitation before she replied, "Well, you knew, didn't you?" and hung up.
The body of any organization has four bones:
1. Wish bones, who spend all their time wishing someone else will do all the work.
2. Jaw Bones, who do all the talking and very little else.
3. Knuckle Bones, who knock everything that everybody else tries to do.
4. Back Bones, who get under the load and do all the work.
A father was waiting nearby while his young son prayed silently before going to bed. Suddenly the boy burst out laughing.
"Reggie!" scolded his father, "Why are you laughing during prayer?"
"But Dad," the boy answered, "you told me that prayer is talking to God as to a friend, and I just told him a joke."
My daughter called me at work to say I had received a call from "Josh" at the bank regarding my account.
Returning the call to my bank, the operator asked what Josh's last name was. I explained that he hadn't left his last name.
Then she asked for his department, and I said that I didn't know that either.
"There are 1500 employees in this building, ma'am," she told me rather sharply.
So I asked her for her name.
"Danielle," she said.
"And your last name?" I asked.
"Sorry," she replied, "we're not allowed to give last names."
