These mistakes have been collected from Sundayschool teachers, Catholic school teachers and others
This comes from a Catholic elementary school. Kids were asked questions about the Old and New Testaments.
In the first book of the bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating the world, so he took the Sabbath off.
Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. Noah’s wife was called Joan of Ark. Noah built an ark, which the animals come on to in pears.
Lot’s wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of fire by night.
The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they had trouble with the unsympathetic Genitals.
Samson was a strong man who let himself be led astray by a Jezebel like Delilah.
Samson slayed the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles.
Moses led the Hebrews to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is bread without any ingredients.
The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten ammendments.
The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the apple.
The seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery.
Moses died before he ever reached Canada. Then Joshua led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol.
The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him.
David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fought with the Finklesteins, race of people who lived in Biblical times.
Solomon, one of David’s sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.
When Mary heard that she was the mother of Jesus, she sang the Magna Carta.
When the three wise guys from the East side arrived, they found Jesus in the manager.
Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption.
St. John the blacksmith dumped water on his head.
Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do one to others before they do one to you. He also explained, “a man doth not live by sweat alone.”
It was a miracle when Jesus rose from the dead and managed to get the tombstone off the entrance.
The people who followed the Lord were called the 12 decibels.
The epistles were the wives of the apostles.
One of the oppossums was St. Matthew who was also a taximan.
St. Paul cavorted to Christianity. He preached holy acrimony, which is another name for marriage.
Christians have only one spouse. This is called monotony.
Good moning everyboomie.
IT'S FRIDAY!!!.....and my day off.
I just love having one day off, when I have to go buy groceries, and I have to clean my house, and I have to do laundry, then I have to get to bed early so I can get up at 4:30 for work Saturday.
We work 6 days, have 1 day off, work 4 days, have 1 day off, work 4 more days to then have 2 days off.
You'd better believe that by the time I get to those 2 days off, I am ready to go bananas.
I like working at Lowe's, but there are so many things that go on there that almost make the top of my head come off.
I hope that never happens, because Heh, if it did then people could read my mind.
Worse yet I would just lose my mind.
On the bright side, I could run for a political office.
Have a happy day everyone.
