So far I've been pranked by Netflix and Google. I'm on the lookout for some more April Fools in the news.
With all the horrible news going on right now in the world, lets have some fun on this thread.
I want to nominate my favorite, the one the BBC did years ago about the Spaghetti trees.
Cover the toilet with Saran wrap.
The joke is the Muzzies don't know that represents
an excerpt from the Bible....often quoted by Christians.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
President Barack Hussein Obama.
The high voices in the choir have been provided by boys for more than five centuries. In future, high vocal parts will be performed by altos breathing helium.
Alas....she told about 20 people and had to undo the tale. So fun!!
It’s also one of those “twisted scriptures” that the left misquotes to say that rich people aren’t and can’t be righteous enough to go to heaven.
I keep hoping the re-election of Obama was an April fools joke, that’s gone on too long.
I don’t know if these sink sprayers still exist, but...
If you have one of those sprayers beside your faucet, tie a same color twist-tie around the level and point the nozzle straight out towards the person that will turn on the faucet.
yeah the most socialist of bible quotes. why else would the regime have it built.
(I hope I recall chemistry correctly)
Alas, that’s the kind of thing I would probably do too. :)
It’s not socialist until Satan’s little helpers twist it that way.
It just means that those with a lot of earthly goods have more trouble focusing on heavenly treasures.
Were the tigers on loan from Sigfried and Roy?
So you gonna argue with Jesus?
Toothpaste under the driver’s side door handle this morning.
Hubby didn’t find it nearly as hilarious as I did.
Tonight’s prank involves crime scene tape & chalk outlines on the driveway. This one is tried and true & great for pranking neighbors.
The phony crime scene has potential as long as you next door neighbor doesn’t work for CSI. :)
I never did toothpaste but I’ve done a few whoopee cushions in my life.
If you don’t - your secret is certainly safe with me! I never memorized much of the periodic table! :-)
At the local radio station here, people know the radio dj’s like free food, so someone is bringing in Oreos filled with toothpaste....
Rand Paul bought a man’s suit??????
23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.
That sounds like a good one. Except there is still 6 inches of snow and ice on my driveway. Maybe next year.
Dave’s not here man.
I will make a note of it.
I will confess as a child I put sugar in the salt container.
My father was not to pleased.
Correct, when the rich man asked Jesus how he could get into heaven, Jesus said “sell everything you have, give it to the poor and follow me”.
What he did NOT say was “establish a system of progressive taxation...”
Joke’s on you...it’s a Dromedary.
Jesus was not advocating for socialism with that quote .nor any other ..not to mention the fact that “the eye of a needle” had different context in those times.
Yes, rather plain indeed. Anyone with a lot of earthly possessions has a harder time forsaking them for heavenly treasure.
Ooh.....that’s minty fresh evil.....
Unless...they twist them and lick the filling first. Then I would it be downgraded to a prank?
Daughter’s school was a bus ride away on the opposite side of a rickety old draw bridge over the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in NE Florida. I came home one April 1st and told her that a barge had come loose, hit it and that the bridge would be shut down for at least the next 6 weeks.
Needless to say, she was nearly apoplectic - I let her twist in the wind for about 10 minutes, finally asking her what day it was.
The bruises remain. They’re deep, but they’re there.
Third Grade prank:
The school administrators went on a tear dictating what the students had to eat and the students had to eat everything the students were given to eat whether they wanted that much or not. In response, a plan was made to see the teachers live up to their own rules after a series of pranks confronted them with some unlikey things to eat. One of the more innocent gambits went like this:
The school lunch tables had blocks of USDA butter/margarine put out on a plate. We took one of them and hollowed out the inside of the block, filled it with the USDA molasses, and sealed it up again with the butter/margarine that had been carved out. Then we slipped it onto the teachers’ lunch table and waited for the fun to begin. When the trap was sprung, the students asked the teachers what they were eating?
Read the next couple of verses - and it almost totally changes how you’ll interpret 23-24. Remember, Jesus had no “verse” break between his words ..25-26 are CRITICAL to understanding 23-24.
Unfortunately, the joke isn’t over on April 2nd!
Obamacare reaches goal enrollment as of March 31.
People fail to understand that bible quote. It was not about amount of wealth at all - see Solomon for that debunking - it was about loving money more then God and about opportunity to turn to God, to realize one needed him. Rich people have easier lives then poor people generally, less hardships - less chance of hitting bottom.
The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.
Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God.
Jesus never taught we were to give our charity obligations to Caesar.

The scripture leading up to the verse is important as well. The man valued his wealth over God. Jesus didn’t tell everyone to sell everything they had; not even the wealthy Centurian with the sick servent. Abraham was a wealthy man and God found him to be Righteous.
Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?
“Why do you ask me about what is good? Jesus replied. There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.
Which ones? he inquired.
Jesus replied, You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’ and love your neighbor as yourself.
All these I have kept, the young man said. What do I still lack?
Jesus answered, If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.
When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, Who then can be saved?
Jesus looked at them and said, With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
Peter answered him, We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?
Jesus said to them, Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.
I’m sorry your joke didn’t go as planned. I truly am.
That sounds like a good one,
CNN Ceases Flight MH370 Reporting Until Definitive Evidence Is Discovered.
I love your pictures. I’m honored you posted one to me!
Burger king has been running ads for the new “left handed whopper”.
