A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology courses. She
started her class by saying, "Everyone who thinks they're stupid, stand up!"
After a few seconds, Little Davie stood up. The teacher said, "Do you
think you're stupid, Little Davie?"
"No, ma'am, but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself!"


Little Davie watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her
"Why do you do that, mommy?" he asked.
"To make myself beautiful," said his mother, who then began removing the
cream with a tissue.
"What's the matter?" asked Little Davie. "Giving up?"


A Sunday School teacher of pre-schoolers was concerned that his students
might be a little confused about Jesus Christ because of the Christmas
season emphasis on His birth. He wanted to make sure they understood that
the birth of Jesus occurred a long time ago, that He grew up, etc. So he
asked his class, "Where is Jesus today?"
Steven raised his hand and said, "He's in heaven."
Mary was called on and answered, "He's in my heart." Little Davie waving
his hand furiously, blurted out, "I know! I know! He's in our bathroom!"
The teacher was completely at a loss for a few very long seconds. Finally,
he gathered his wits and asked Little Davie how he knew this. Little Davie
said, "Well... every morning, my father gets up, bangs on the bathroom
door, and yells, "Jesus Christ, are you still in there?!"


The math teacher saw that little Davie was n't paying attention in class.
She called on him and said, "Davie!
What are 2 and 4 and 28 and 44?"
Little Davie quickly replied, "NBC, CBS, HBO and the Cartoon Network!"


Little Davies's kindergarten class was on a field trip to their local police
station where they saw pictures tacked to a bulletin board of the 10 most
wanted criminals.
One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and asked if it really was the
photo of a wanted person.
"Yes," said the policeman.
"The detectives want very badly to capture him."
Little Davie asked, "Why didn't you keep him when you took his picture?"

Little Davie attended a horse auction with his father. He watched as his
father moved from horse to horse, running his hands up and down the horse's
legs, rump, and chest. After a few minutes, Davie asked, "Dad, why are you
doing that?" His father replied, "Because when I'm buying horses, I have to
make sure that they are healthy and in good shape before I buy."
Davie, looking worried, said, "Dad, I think the UPS guy wants to buy Mom.

submitted by Janet Carroll

Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace.

The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to inner peace and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions.

*Some signs to look for:

A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.

An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.

A loss of interest in judging other people.

A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.

A loss of interest in conflict.

A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)

Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.

Frequent attacks of smiling.

An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

An increased susceptibility to the love offered by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

Be Forewarned!! ! If you have all or even most of the above symptoms,

please be advised that your condition may be too far advanced to turn back.

If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting several of these symptoms, remain exposed at your own risk.
