Smile.....it's Tuesday!

Recommended Posts

A joke for a blustery, cold Tuesday morning....


There was a tradesman, a painter named Wayne, who was very interested

in making a penny where he could, so he often thinned down his paint

to make it go a wee bit further.


As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually

the Baptist Church decided to do a big restoration job on the painting

of one

of their biggest buildings. Wayne put in a bid, and because his price

was so low, he got the job.


And so he set about erecting the scaffolding and setting up the

planks, and buying the paint and, yes, I am sorry to say, thinning it

down with turpentine.


Well, Wayne was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly

completed when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, and

the sky opened, the rain poured down, Washing the thinned paint from

all over the church and knocking Wayne clear off the scaffold to land

on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles of

the thinned and useless paint.


Wayne was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so

he got on his knees and cried: "Oh, God! Forgive me! What should I

do?" and from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke...
















"Repaint! Repaint! and thin no more!
