OK, let’s have some fun!

Now this is a glorious picture!  Just look at these bats madly rushing out of this church’s belfry!  What a fantastic shrink must have just moved into the belfry to do some bat-ousting!!!  Got ’em all out of there immediately!  I’ll bet all of that leftover guano smells PRETTY bad, though …

A linguistics professor was lecturing his class one day.

“In English”, he said, “A double negative forms a positive.  In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative.  However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative.”

A loud voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah, right!”

Now these young ladies are doing the world a HUGE favor by holding up the leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy!  Just like the young boy who still, to the best of my knowledge, has one of his fingers plugging that little hole in the dike, holding back the sea from drowning Holland, these two heroines will be sacrificing their lives for a while, at least until some others volunteer to take their places.  Let’s all give it up for servants of the world like these young people!

By the way, did you know that the leaning Tower of Pisa is actually a free-standing bell tower?  That’s right!  It serves as the bell tower for the Cathedral of Pisa, pictured above to the left of the tower.  So this tower is actually a leaning belfry!!!  And I thought bats were a problem!

Newlyweds …

Husband:  Sweetheart, am I the only man you’ve ever loved?

Wife:  Of course you are, dear.  But why do all of you men keep asking me the same silly question?!?

For all of us Doomsday Count-downers:

And now for some more belfry humor:

After Quasimodo‘s death, Bishop Thomas of the cathedral of Notre Dame sent word through the streets of Paris that a new bell ringer was needed. The bishop decided that he would conduct the interviews personally and went up into the belfry to begin the screening process.

After observing while several applicants demonstrated their skills, he decided to call it a day.

Just then a lone, armless man approached him and announced that he was there to apply for the bell ringer’s job.

Bishop Thomas was incredulous. “You have no arms!”

”No matter,” said the man, “observe!” He then began striking the bells with his face, producing a beautiful melody on the carillon. The bishop listened in astonishment, convinced that he had finally found a suitable replacement for Quasimodo. Suddenly, while rushing forward to strike a bell, the armless man tripped and plunged headlong out of the belfry window to his death in the street below.

The stunned bishop immediately rushed down the stairways. When he reached the street, a crowd had gathered around the fallen figure, drawn by the beautiful music they had heard only moments before. As they silently parted to let the bishop through, one of them asked, “Bishop, who was this man?”

“I don’t know his name,” the bishop sadly replied, “but his face rings a bell.”

Have a great day, and an even better week!  And please, try to do something good this week that you’ve been meaning to do for a while.  It will help your self-esteem, and that alone will make the world a better place!
