Crying With Laughter

24 Apr

First, a sweet story for Easter that I read today:

At an Easter service in Bangladesh the congregation wept at the crucifixion scene in the Jesus film.

Suddenly a little boy at the back jumped up and shouted, ‘Don’t worry, He gets up again.  I saw it before!’

Happy Easter 🙂


I was saddened to hear of the death yesterday of John Sullivan, creator of Citizen Smith and Only Fools And Horses.  He had me crying with laughter more than once over the last thirty years.  Here are a few of my favourite scenes:

    How wonderful to die leaving a legacy of laughter and love behind. 😀

    Thanks, Tilly.

    Makes for a great life, doesn’t it! Your story from Bangladesh reminds me of one of my favorites that took place during a children’s Christmas pageant. The young boy who played the innkeeper was mentally handicapped. He was an enthusiastic member of the cast, and looked forward to rehearsals and especially the performance. He always got into the story, and at last the night of their performance arrived. When the time came for him to turn down Mary and Joseph when they asked for a room, he couldn’t bring himself to follow through with it. After properly reciting his lines, “No! No room!” and the couple turned to walk away, he suddenly shouted out, “Wait! Come back! You can have my room!”

    Trust kids to let the cat out of the bag lol! 😉
    I remember ‘Only Fools & Horses’ so well, never missed an episode, it was hilarious. John Sullivan certainly knew how to make us laugh!

      We bought the Hub the complete collection for Christmas and we’re busy working our way through it.

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.
