Underpriviliged

We just spent several hours observing teenagers hanging out
at our local mall. We came to the conclusion that many teenagers in
America today are living in poverty. Most young men We observed didn’t
even own a belt; there was not one among the whole group.

But that wasn’t the sad part. Many were wearing their
daddy’s jeans.
Some jeans were so big and baggy they hung low on their hips,
exposing their underwear. I know some must have been ashamed their
daddy was short, because his jeans hardly went below their knees.
They weren’t even their daddies’ good jeans, for most had holes
ripped in the knees and a dirty look to them.

It grieved us, in a modern, affluent society like America,
that there are those who can’t afford a decent pair of jeans. I
was
thinking about asking my church to start a jeans drive for
“poor kids at the mall.” Then on Christmas Eve, we could
go Christmas caroling and distribute jeans to these poor teenagers.

But here is the saddest part…it was the girls that were
hanging out there that disturbed us most. Never, in all of our lives,
have we seen such poverty-stricken girls. These girls had the
opposite problem of the guys. They all had to wear their
little sister’s clothes. Their jeans were about 5 sizes too small!
I don’t know how they could get them on, let alone button them up.
Their jeans barely went over their hipbones. Most also had on their
little sister’s top; it hardly covered their midsections.

Oh, they were trying to hold their heads up with pride, but it was a
sad sight to see these almost grown women wearing children’s clothes.

However, it was their underwear that bothered us most.
They, like the boys, because of the improper fitting of their clothes,
had their underwear exposed. We had never seen anything
like it. It looked like their underwear was only held together
by a single piece of string.

We know it saddens your heart to receive this report on
condition of our American teenagers. While we go to bed every
night with closets full of clothes nearby, there are millions of
“mall girls” who barely have enough material to keep it together.
We think their “poorness” is why these two groups gather at the
mall; boys with their short daddies’ ripped jeans, and girls wearing
their younger sisters’ clothes. The mall is one place where
they can find acceptance. So, next time you are at the mall,
doing your shopping , and you pass by some of these poor teenagers,

would you say a prayer for them?

Idiots

“If there are any idiots in the room, will they please stand up,”

said the sarcastic teacher.

After a long silence, one freshman rose to his feet.

“Now then mister, why do you consider yourself an idiot?!” inquired the teacher with a sneer.

“Well actually I don’t,” said the student,

“but I hate to see you standing up there all by yourself.”

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano!Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account!
And if you had a broken disk,
It would hurt when you found out!

Compress was something you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You’d be in jail for awhile!

Log on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to your commode!

Cut–you did with a pocket knife
Paste you did with glue
A web was a spider’s home
And a virus was the flu!

I guess I’ll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody’s been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens they wish they were dead!

A man and his friend were enjoying Deer Hunting Season
in rural Arkansas near a blacktop highway.

A huge buck walked by and the hunter carefully drew
his bow and took careful aim.

Before he could release his arrow, his friend pointed
at a funeral procession passing on the road below
their stand.
The hunter slowly let off the pressure on his bow,
took off his hat, bowed his head and closed his eyes in
prayer.

His friend was amazed. “Wow, that is the most
thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You are the
kindest man I have ever known.”

The hunter shrugged. “Yeah, well, we were married for
35 years.”

Honeymoon Prank

Bill had always been a prankster. As each of his
friends were married,
Bill made sure some type of practical joke was played
upon them. Now
ready to be married himself, he was dreading the
payback he knew was
coming.

Surprisingly, the ceremony went off without a hitch.
No one stood up
during the pause to offer a reason ‘why this couple
should not be
married’. His reception wasn’t disrupted by streakers
or strippers,
and the car the couple was to take on their honeymoon
was in perfect
working order.

When the couple arrived at their hotel and entered the
room, Bill even
checked for cornflakes in the bed (a gag he had always
loved).
Nothing, it seemed, was amiss. Satisfied that he had
come away
unscathed, the couple fell into bed and put their
attention to
consummating the union.

Upon waking after such an active night, the couple was
ravenous so
Bill called down to room service and asked “Can I get
breakfast for
two?”. Before he was able to hang up, however, a soft
voice from under
the bed said “Make that five…”
