Combed my email archive... here's the highlights. Use what you like.

>One day Mrs. Jones went to have a talk with the minister at her church.
>"Reverend," she said, "I have a problem. My husband keeps falling
>asleep during your sermons. It's very embarrassing. What should I do?"
>"I have an idea", said the minister. "Take a hatpin with you. I'll be
>able to
>tell when Mr. Jones is sleeping, and I'll motion to you. When I do, you
>give him a poke in the leg."
>In church, the following Sunday, Mr. Jones dozed off. Noticing this, the
>preacher put his plan to work. "And who made the ultimate sacrifice for
>you?" he asked, nodding to Mrs. Jones.
>"Jesus!" Jones cried as his wife jabbed him in the leg with the hatpin.
>"Yes, you are right, Mr. Jones," said the minister.
>Soon, Mr. Jones nodded off again. Again, the minister noticed. "Who
>is your redeemer?" he asked the congregation, motioning towards Mrs.
>"God!" Mr. Jones cried out as he was stuck again with the hatpin.
>"Right again," said the minister, smiling. Before long, Mr. Jones again
>winked off. However, this time the minister did not notice. As he picked
>up the tempo of his sermon, he made a motion that Mrs. Jones mistook
>as the signal to bayonet her husband with the hatpin again.
>As the minister asked, "And what did Eve say to Adam after she bore
>him his 99th son?"... Mrs. Jones poked her husband, who yelled, "You
>stick that damned thing in me one more time and I'll break it in half and
>shove it up your ass!"
>"Amen!" replied the congregation.

Here is one of my favorites (typed from memory):

One day, the Lord decides to give Saint Peter a break from watching the pearly gates, and takes the duty himself. Before long, an old man comes shuffling out of the clouds and approaches Jesus at the gates.

"Welcome to heaven," greets Jesus, "before you can enter, I need to ask a few questions."

"Ask away," says the old man.

"What was your profession when you where on the earth?"

"I was but a simple carpenter."

"Did you have any children?"

"Though not of my own flesh, I had but one son."

"Was there anything special about your son?"

"Well, he had nails in his hands, and nails in his feet."

"What is your name?"

"In this language we are now speaking it would be 'Joseph'".

Jesus peered at the old man in hope, "Dad???"

"Is that you, Pinnochio?"

My mom sent me this one yesterday.

The Three Religious Truths of Life:

1. The Jews don't recognize the Messiah.

2. The Protestants don't recognize the Pope.

A Priest, a Minister, and a Rabbi walked into a bar.

That's what happens when you pay more attention to God than your surroundings...
