One Easter a priest and a taxi driver both died and went to heaven. St. Peter was at the Pearly gates waiting for them.
'Come with me,' said St. Peter to the taxi driver.
The taxi driver did as he was told and followed St Peter to a mansion. It had everything you could imagine from a bowling alley to an Olympic size pool.
'Oh my word, thank you,' said the taxi driver.
Next, St. Peter led the priest to a rough old shack with a bunk bed and a little old television set.
'Wait, I think you are a little mixed up,' said the priest. 'Shouldn't I be the one who gets the mansion? After all I was a priest, went to church every day, and preached God's word.'
'Yes, that's true.' St Peter rejoined, 'But during your Easter sermons people slept. When the taxi driver drove, everyone prayed.'
The Call to Worship had just been pronounced starting Easter Sunday Morning service in an East Texas church. The choir started its processional, singing "Up from the Grave He Arose" as they marched in perfect step down the center aisle to the front of the church.
The last lady was wearing shoes with very slender heels. Without a thought for her fancy heels, she marched toward the grating that covered that hot air register in the middle of the aisle. Suddenly the heel of one shoe sank into the hole in the register grate.
In a flash she realized her predicament. Not wishing to hold up the whole processional, without missing a step, she slipped her foot out of her shoe and continued marching down the aisle.
There wasnt a hitch. The processional moved with clock-like precision. The first man after her spotted the situation and without losing a step, reached down and pulled up her shoe, but the entire grate came with it! Surprised, but still singing, the man kept on going down the aisle, holding in his hand the grate with the shoe attached.
Everything still moved like clockwork. Still in tune and still in step, the next man in line stepped into the open register and disappeared from sight. The service took on a special meaning that Sunday, for just as the choir ended with "Allelujah! Christ arose!" a voice was heard under the church shouting, "I hope all of you are out of the way cause Im coming out now!"
The little girl closest to the aisle shouted, "Come on, Jesus! Well stay out of the way."
Three fools died and find themselves at the pearly gates of heaven. St Peter tells them that they can enter the gates if they can answer one simple question.
St Peter asks the first fool, "WHAT IS EASTER?"
The fool replies, "Oh, thats easy, its the holiday in November when everybody gets together, eats turkey, and is thankful...."
"WRONG," replies St Peter, and proceeds to ask the second fool the same question, "WHAT IS EASTER?"
The second fool replies, "No, Easter is the holiday in December when we put up a nice tree, exchange presents, and celebrate the birth of Jesus."
St Peter looks at the second fool and shakes his head in disgust. He looks at the third fool and asks, "WHAT IS EASTER?"
The third fool smiles and looks St Peter in the eye.
"I know what Easter is. Easter is the Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus and his disciples ate the last supper. He later was betrayed and turned over to the Romans by one of his own disciples. The Romans took Him to be crucified, made Him wear a crown of thorns, hung him on a cross, and stabbed him in the side. He was buried in a nearby cave which was sealed off by a large boulder."
St Peter smiled broadly with delight. The third fool continued... "Every year the boulder is moved aside so that Jesus can come out, and if He sees his shadow there will be six more weeks of winter."
A Sunday School teacher asked her class to write one sentence each on "What Easter Means to Me." One pupil wrote: "Egg salad sandwiches for the next two weeks!"
One lady wrote in to a question and answer forum. "Dear Sirs, Our preacher said on Easter, that Jesus just swooned on the cross and that the disciples nursed Him back to health. What do you think? Sincerely, Bewildered."
"Dear Bewildered, Beat your preacher with a cat-of-nine-tails with 39 heavy strokes, nail him to a cross; hang him in the sun for 6 hours; run a spear thru his side...put him in an airless tomb for 36 hours and see what happens. Sincerely, Charles."
My friends, He is risen!
I heard about a church organist who overslept one Easter morning. She said, "The service was scheduled for 6:30. At 6:31, the minister called to see if I was coming. Since I live near the church, I was at the organ by 6:45. Then, a year later on Easter morning my phone rang at 5:45. When I answered, I heard the minister announce: 'Christ is risen! And you'd better rise, too!'"
Judy Packard of Lake Leelanau, Michigan, talks about the time her neighbor, visiting the Holy Land, sent a letter describing the beautiful gardens.
Her 6-year-old mused, "I wonder if he saw the rose."
"What rose?" Judy asked.
"You know," said her child, "like the Bible women saw. They went to that garden where Jesus was buried and they saw Christ had a rose!"
Maria came home from Sunday School on Palm Sunday and told her mother that she had learned a new song about a cross-eyed bear named Gladly.
It took her mother a while before she realised that the hymn Maria had been singing was really: "Gladly The Cross I'd Bear."

The Lion Tamer
A circus owner places an ad on a professional blog for a lion tamer. Two people show up. One is a gorgeous blond in her mid-twenties. The other is a ruggedly handsome retired grey-haired senior golfer in his late sixties to early seventies.
The circus owner tells them, “I’m not going to sugar coat it. This is one ferocious beast. He ate the last lion tamer so you better be good or you’ll be history. Here’s your equipment — a chair, a whip, and a gun. Who wants to try
The blond quickly says, “I will...I’ll go first.” Then she walks right past the chair, the whip, and the gun and fearlessly steps into the lion’s cage.
The lion starts to snarl and pant, lets out an ear shattering roar, and charges at her. When hes about halfway there, she throws her coat open to reveal her
absolutely beautiful naked body.
Well, the lion stops dead in his tracks. He slinks down and sheepishly crawls up to her and begins to lick her feet and ankles. He continues to nuzzle and caress her entire body for several minutes, and then rests his head on her feet.
The owner’s jaw drops wide open in astonishment. He says, “I’ve never seen a display like that in my life.” Turning to the rugged old retired golfer and he asks, “Think you can top that?”
The golfer replies, “No problem - - just get that lion out of there!”
Well, I guess we just had to
Let it Go!
Oh! I did it again! I am the greatest pun guy ever! I cannot be stopped!
