bad memory, funny quotes

I have posted a joke a day for the last 118 weeks and four days…on Day 5 of Week 119 (today), I forgot!  Sorry.

By way of apology, here are some quotes about memory.  They’re not that funny but, if I remember correctly, I’ve already told you all the funny jokes about memory.  Also, they’re not that funny but, if I remember correctly, I’ve already told you all the funny jokes about memory (like that one).

And finally…

A priest ran out of petrol on his way home.   Fortunately, the village garage was only about half a mile away.  Amazingly, the garage did not have any petrol containers.  The priest pleaded that the garage owner must have a container that would hold half a gallon of petrol.  After much searching the proprietor came up with a chamber pot.  Although it was not strictly legal, they filled the chamber pot with petrol and the priest set off happily back to his car.

Just as the priest was decanting the petrol from the chamber pot into his tank a lorry driver stopped, wound down his window and said, ‘Father, I have heard of the miracle of changing water into wine, but I think you’re pushing your luck this time.’
