The Bob And Tom “Joke Of The Day”
Forgive Your Enemies
Toward the end of Sunday’s homily, the priest asked, “How many of you have forgiven your enemies?”
Almost everyone held up their hands.
The priest then repeated his question. Everyone responded this time, except one man, an avid golfer named Walter Barnes, who attended church only when the weather was bad.
“Mr. Barnes, it’s obviously not a good morning for golf. It’s good to see you here today.
Are you unwilling to forgive your enemies?”
“I don’t have any, Father,” he replied gruffly.
“Wow, Mr. Barnes, that is very unusual. How old are you again?”
“Ninety-eight,” he replied. The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.
“Oh, Mr. Barnes, would you please come up and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years & not have an enemy in the world?”
The old man tottered down the aisle, stopped in front of the pulpit, turned around, faced the congregation, and said simply, “I outlived all the sons of bitches.”
