Sunday funnies

Wally was a postal worker assigned to the dead letter office. One Wednesday afternoon a letter arrived addressed to God in shaky handwriting. Wally opened it and read:

Dear God,

I am an elderly widow living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension check. Two of my dearest friends are coming to my house for dinner on Sunday, but I have no money to buy food. I have no family to turn to. You are my only hope. Please help me.



Wally showed the letter to his fellow workers, and they decided to take up a collection to help the widow. When everyone had contributed, they had $95, which Wally put into an envelope and mailed to her.

On Tuesday of the following week another letter arrived, addressed to God in the same shaky handwriting. All of the workers gathered around while the letter was opened. It read:

Dear God,

I can never thank you enough for what you did for me! Because of your gift, I was able to make a lovely dinner for my friends. We had a wonderful time, and I told them all about what you had done for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!



p.s. There was $5 missing. I think it must have been those thieves at the post office.

    That’s cute. I heard a similar joke years ago. Grandma takes her little grandson to the beach. He’s wearing a hat she gave him. Suddenly, a wave roars onto the beach and swallows him. She’s terrified and begs God to return him. Just as suddenly, the wave spits him back onto the beach. Grandma shouts at God: “HE HAD A HAT!”

    Actually, Grandma, the $5 was the Gubmint’s “cut”.

  6. Really cute. She was a true believer but not in the government. You probably can’t blame her. 😀 — Suzanne
