Parody on Father Guido Sarducci

Vita est Lavorum. That means “life is a job.” That’s-a what-a we found out — life is hard, you think it’s difficult sometimes? That’s-a because it’s a JOB! We’re all-a getting paid $14.50 a day. It don’t sound like much. I mean, $14.50 a day, but, you know, over a period of, like, 60-70-80 years… it’s-a nothing to sneeze your nose at.

And-a, what happens to you when-a you die… you know, it’s like-a the soul leaves the body, it’s like a little bubbling 7-Up. You know? It just-a- goes-a shooting up, and-a you see yourself going down this-a long tunnel — but you’re not afraid. And then, when you get to the end, you see your whole life go by you. You know? From when you was a little-a baby… ’til the day you die. And then… they pay you. God and his-a helpers. You know, they bring-a in all of this money, and then… God goes over all-a of-a your sins. And you get FINED. You know, it’s like, uh… like, maybe like stealing a car’s like $400. Murder is… maybe, you know, the worst — it’s like $50,000. And masturbation… eh, maybe, you know, like twenty-five, thirty-five cents. You know. That’s-a cheap sin. You know, but-a for a lot of people, you know, it can amount up. It-a just-a shows, you know — there is-a NO free lunch.

So I’m-a thinking. I get to heaven, and San Pietro, he examines the ledger, and he finds my entry. Yes, I’m-a in the book. And wouldn’t it be my luck. I’m-a 35 cents short.

I’m-a telling you, that’s life.

Author Miller is in New York for the opening of one of his plays. And he goes by to visit his old neighborhood. So he’s walking along the street, seeing familiar sights. And he runs into a school chum from school. It’s Bertie, now selling hot dogs from a cart.

He walks up and says, “Bertie! How’re you doing.”

Bertie looks at him, puzzled, and Miller goes on, “Bertie, it’s me, Artie Miller. You remember me.”

Bertie’s eyes light up. “Artie! Wow! It’s been a long time. So, what brings you around? What are you up to?”

Miller explains, “Bertie, I’m a playwright. I have a new play, ‘Death of a Salesman.’ Opening on Broadway this week.”

Bertie is impressed. He looks at his old friend in amazement. “Playwright, eh? Yeah, I should have gone into that.”

This was way back when, back before the days of email. Professor Higgins was 72, and he had just married a 22-year-old ex-student of his. He was preparing to go on his honeymoon.

Professor Johnson pulled him aside. “Let me know how it goes.”

“What do you men how it goes?”

“You know, Freddy, the wedding night. Send me a telegram.”

Higgins was reluctant. “I can’t put that kind of thing in a telegram. Everybody reads those.”

Johnson had an idea. “Tell you what. If you get an erection, just wire back that you passed physics. If you achieve copulation, then say you passed mechanical engineering. And if, I mean if, if you get her pregnant, then wire back you passed biology.”

Professor Higgins agreed that would work, and he left with his new bride.”

Johnson waited, and days went by, and he had forgotten all about Higgins. Then a telegram arrived.

“Flunked everything except French.”

A Priest Was Being Honored At His Retirement Dinner. One Of The Speakers Shocked Everyone.

A Priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the parish. A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and to give a little speech at the dinner.

However, he was delayed, so the Priest decided to say his own few words while they waited: Thank Goodness we Catholics have a wonderful sense of humor! “l got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place. The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and, when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it. He had stolen money from his parents; embezzled from his employer; had an affair with his boss’s wife; had sex with his boss’s daughter on numerous occasions, taken illegal drugs; was arrested several times for public nudity and gave VD to his sister

I was appalled that one person could do so many awful things. But as the days went on, I learned that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people.’

Just as the Priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and gave his talk: “I’ll never forget the first day our parish Priest arrived,’ said the politician. “In fact, I had the honor of being the first person to go to him for confession.”

I just read last year 4,153,237 people got married. I don’t want to start any trouble, but shouldn’t that be an even number?

Caution. If you heard 20 minutes of moaning from my bedroom, that was just me trying to stand up.

Fun to watch Republicans tell us Michael Cohen has no credibility when he was deputy finance chair for their National Committee.

Roger Stone claims he is being treated worse than Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden could not be reached for comment.

Russia, if you are listening, can we get a copy of the Mueller Report?

A new supermarket just opened near my house. It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on you hear the sound of distant thunder, and there is the smell of fresh rain.

When you approach the milk cases you hear the sound of cows mooing, and you can smell the fresh hay.

When you approach the egg case you hear the sound of hens cackling and are treated to the smell of bacon and eggs frying.

The veggie department features the smell of fresh buttered corn.

I don’t buy toilet paper there anymore.
