A Joke A Day, Keeps The Vampires At Bay ...

When you run out of idea for an interim post, the best solution is to copy a joke from somewhere online and post it here and give it one stupid nonsensical title ... LOL! Call me lazy but hey :D Anyways, hope you get as good a chuckle from this as I did ...

As a young minister, I was asked by a funeral director to hold a

grave-side service for a homeless man, with no family or friends.

The funeral was to be held at a cemetery way back in the country, and

this man would be the first to be laid to rest there.


As I was not familiar with the backwoods area, I became lost;

and being a typical man did not stop for directions. I finally arrived an

hour late. I saw the backhoe and the crew, who was eating lunch, but the

hearse was nowhere in sight.

I apologized to the workers for my tardiness, and stepped to the side of the open grave,
where I saw the vault
lid already in place. I assured the workers I would not hold them up for
long, but this was the proper thing to do.


The workers gathered around, still eating their lunch. I poured out my heart and soul.
As I preached the workers began to say "Amen,"

"Praise the Lord," and "Glory"! I preached, and I preached,

like I'd never preached before: from Genesis all the way to Revelations.


I closed the lengthy service with a prayer and walked to my car.

As I was opening the door and taking off my coat, I overheard one of

the workers saying to another, "I ain't never seen anything like that before and
I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.
