On the Lighter Side – 2010
A couple had two young boys who were excessively mischievous. Their parents knew that if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons were probably involved.
The boys’ mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed, but asked to see them individually. The mother agreed and sent the youngest in first.
The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, “Where is God?” The boy’s mouth dropped open, but he made no response. He sat there with his mouth hanging open, wide eyed. So the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is God?” Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face and bellowed, “WHERE IS GOD?”
The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, “What happened?”
Gasping for breath, the younger brother replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time, dude. God is missing – and they think WE did it!”
