Friday Funny

An  American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world.  So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando, thinking that he would start by working his way across the USA from South to North.

On  his first day he was inside a church taking photographs, when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read '$10,000 per call'.


 The  American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by, what the telephone was used  for.

 The  priest replied that it was a direct line to Heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God.

 The  American thanked the priest and went along his  way.

Next stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large Cathedral, he saw the same looking golden telephone with the same sign under  it.

He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and he asked nearby nun what  its purpose was.

 She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God.

 'O.K.,  thank you,' said the American.

He  then travelled all across America, Europe, EnglandJapanNew Zealand. In  every church he saw the same looking golden telephone, with the same '$US10,000 per call'  sign under it.


The  American decided to travel to Wales to see if Welsh people had the same  phone.


He  arrived at Cardiff in Wales and  again, in the first church he entered, there was  the same looking golden telephone, but this time  the sign under it read, '40 cents per  call.'

The  American was surprised, so he asked the Priest  about the sign. 'Father, I've travelled all over  the world and I've seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in all of them, the price was $10,000 per call.  Why  is it so cheap here?'

The Priest smiled and answered, 'You're in Wales now, son - "This is Heaven," so it's a local call'.

Got me too, but don't they say that Wales is God's own country anyhow?

See you changed your profile piccie too :) And of course the rose on my blog today was pink - mind you, the H2O I used was actually deep red but it pales a lot when you drag the colour out.

Friday - yay! Seems a lifetime since this time last week when we were getting ready for the Crop doesn't it, sigh :(

Hugs, Di xx
