CMHS Dad Joke of the Day: (Short announcements lead to long
A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller.
He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patty Whack.
"Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday."
Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his
name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he
knows the bank manager.
Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral.
The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant,
about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.
Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank
manager and disappears into a back office.
She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger
out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he
wants to use this as collateral." She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I
mean, what in the world is this?"
The bank manager looks back at her and says, "It's a knickknack, Patty
Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom.
Listen up! There is an Arabic proverb that goes like this: The sword wounds the body, but words wound the soul. It's true, you know. Words can wound. Unkind words . . . abusive words can really hurt. Sometimes they can hurt for a very long time.
If you take a minute to think about it, you can probably remember something someone said to you a long time ago that hurt your feelings. Does it still hurt to think about it?
There are a lot of people who look just fine on the outside, but inside they've been wounded by unkind words. So how do we heal the wounds? Talk to someone and share your feelings. Then remember what John Heywood said:
It hurteth not the tongue to give pleasant words.
Today, let's heal some wounds. Be especially aware of how you speak to others, and give away a few kind words.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
