Joke 6

30 Mar

One day, a cat dies of natural causes and goes to heaven, where he meets the Lord Himself.

The Lord says to the cat, “You lived a good life, and if there is any way I can make your stay in heaven more comfortable, please let me know.”

The cat thinks for a moment and says, “Lord, all my life I have lived with a poor family and had to sleep on a hard wooden floor.”

The Lord stops the cat and says, “Say no more,” and a wonderful, fluffy pillow appears.

A few days later, six mice are killed in a tragic farming accident, and all of them go to heaven.

Again, the Lord is there to greet them with the same offer.

The mice answer, “All our lives we have been chased.

We have had to run from cats, dogs, and even women with brooms.

Running, running, running; we’re tired of running.

Do you think we could have roller skates so that we don’t have to run anymore?”

The Lord says, “Say no more” and fits each mouse with beautiful new roller skates.

Weeks later, the Lord stops by to see the cat and finds him snoozing on the pillow.

The Lord gently wakes the cat and asks him, “How are things since you got here?”

The cat stretches and yawns, then replies, “It is wonderful here.

Better than I could have ever expected. And those ‘Meals On Wheels’ you’ve been sending by are the best!”

    Tigger wouldn’t know what to do with a live mouse after catching it . . . no gravy. 😀

    Thanks for the smile, Tilly.

    That reminds me of a joke about ducklings in heaven, but it’s complicated. I’ll see if Jock can remember it properly tomorrow. I love the idea of mice on rollerskates.

    Reminds me of a joke too…

    Blind man goes to the fair and has a go on the Dart stall. Three arrows three misses. The stall holder feels sorry for him so he tells him he’s won and gives him a Tortoise.

    He come back the next three nights and each night the same thing happens.

    On the fourth night the stall holder gives him a teddy bear instead of a tortoise.

    The blind man squeezes the teddy a few time an then asks the stall holder if he can swop it for one of the crusty meat pies he had the other times

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
