ok, so this is bad…

It seems that there was a little old church out in the countryside: painted white and with a high steeple.

One Sunday, the pastor noticed that his church needed painting. He checked out the Sunday ads and found a paint sale. The next day, he went into town and bought a gallon of white paint. He went back out to the church and began the job.

He got done with the first side. It was looking great. But he noticed he had already used a half gallon. He didn’t want to run back in town and being the creative person that he was, he found a gallon of thinner in the shed out back, and began to thin his paint.

It worked out great. He finished the remaining three sides with that last half gallon of paint.

That night, it rained: it rained hard. The next morning when he stepped outside of the parsonage to admire his work, he saw that the first side was looking great, but that the paint on the other three sides had washed away.

The pastor looked up in sky in anguish and cried out, “What shall I do?”

A voice came back from the heavens saying, “Repaint, and thin no more!”

    Pastor, it is way to early for that. Ha, ha, ha…….good one Sir!

  2. …I wonder where was the pastor’s wife because she would of seen the whole picture and would advised him to buy more than one gallon.:)

  3. thank God for pastors’ wives.

    Vera, I imagine the pastors wife was probably too busy washing the thinner off of her hands.

  5. o.k….who let my husband do this. why the cheesy joke. I think it goes without saying that a woman would not have let this happen.

  6. Man you guys are up early!!!!

  7. Aman!!!!! Sister Pastor , I was a wondering where you were. Good to hear from you…..:}}}}

  8. Well, I guess that pastor did not have a Laddie Bordovsky or Brian Thornton in his congregation so he did the best he could do. And I agree ladies, the wife would certainly LET HIM KNOW what he was doing wrong. Easy, easy, it is just a joke after all…

I want to hear from you! Let's hear it....ready....GO!!!
