Have a Merry Christmas

Mack Courter |

With Christmas six days away, I can’t imagine too many of you eager for a financial discourse. 

So, instead I offer some lighter fare.  A joke courtesy of Guy-Sports.com.  ( http://www.guy-sports.com/jokes/christmas_jokes.htm#Funny_Christmas_Stories

Saying a Prayer for the Christmas Meal

Lee, A seven-year-old boy, was asked to say thanks for the Christmas dinner.  The family members bowed their heads in expectation.  Lee began his prayer, thanking God for his Mommy, Daddy, brothers, sister, Grandma, and all his aunts and uncles. Then he began to thank God for the food.

He gave thanks for the turkey, the stuffing, the Christmas pudding, even the cranberry sauce. Then lee paused, and everyone waited ... and waited.  After a long silence, the young fellow looked up at his mother and asked, "If I thank God for the Brussels sprouts, won't he know that I'm lying?"

Just a side note:  Although I try to thank God for just about everything, I’m with Lee here.
