    NOISY NEIGHBORS

    A bright young Scottish lad named Shamus had the
    opportunity to go to university in London. So he packed
    his bags and said good-bye to his mother and left the
    highlands for the big city.

    After the first week his mother called to see how her
    boy was holding up.

    "I love it here Mother," Shamus told her, "but these
    English students are the oddest people ever! Why the
    boy who lives in the dormitory room next to me bangs
    his head against the wall until midnight every night.
    And the boy in the room above me stomps around until
    midnight every night. And the boy right below me blasts
    his stereo until midnight every night."

    "Why don't you complain to the Dean of students?" asks
    his mother.

    "Well, it doesn't bother me much," answers Shamus. "I'm
    usually up until that time quietly practicing my
    bagpipes anyway."


    BIRDS ON THE ROOF

    A priest, a minister, and a rabbi were sitting around
    discussing the pigeon problem. Each house of worship
    was being over run with pigeons on the roofs. The
    minister said "I tried to shoot them off, but they'd
    just circle around and come back. The only damage it
    did was to put holes in my roof."

    The rabbi said, "I tried to smoke the pigeons off my
    roof, but all that happened was the roof caught fire."

    The priest then told the others that he managed to get
    rid of the birds. The others were amazed and asked what
    his secret was. "Well," he said, "I just baptized them,
    confirmed them, and I haven't seen them since."

    btw does any 1 get that last 1?:rolleyes:

    Not being an extremely religious person, let me try to explain it to you:

    A person in baptized - like most churches do the bit as a baby - when the preacher does the "in the name of the father, Son and holy ghost" thing with the water on the baby's forehead!

    Then a person is confirmed - which usually consists of taking classes to learn the particulars/beliefs of whatever faith you are going to "confirm your belief in".

    Then after being baptized and confirmed - you are sorta like an official member of that church. One would think that since it was a priest that said it - it is referring to the Catholic faith and like everyone who is Catholic gets baptized and confirmed!

    Well, the priest was inferring that once they were baptized and confirmed - they met that requirement of the church and they were never seen again! Like they did what was expected of them and then never attended church (mass) as good catholics are expected to.

    BTW - There is a joke going around here right now since it is close to election time about he only time the politicians attend church is close to election time! Along the same idea!

    I am sure someone else could explain this better than - but if you know what they are talking about - it is humorous!:eek:

    Like Damnyank, not being a religious type person myself, I still got the second joke straight away. I hate doing this, giving praise to Damnyank, but he explained the joke very well.

    Maybe both of us being a bit older than most people in the forum, we can understand these sort of things a lot easier than the young'ns..
