'FunnyYou Should Say That!'


On these pages we publish  jokes, cartoons and oddities,  with a Christian connection, as well as a few that aren't religious, but which caught the website manager's fancy. Apologies are unreservedly offered to any individual or publication we have not been able to trace and acknowledge or who would have preferred not to share the joke with a wider public. Apologies likewise tendered to those who are not amused by what they read or see, or who may find any item not entirely politically correct. No apologies to those who feel that a Church website is no place for such things - we are happy to believe that God has a sense of humour, otherwise he would not have created the human race, let alone the people of Saint Faith's in general and the website manager in particular. It goes without saying that any perceived bias or incorrect thinking contained or implied by these various offerings in no way reflects the views of our church or any of its members... although many of them share this writer's unreconstructed sense of humour.

If you have a joke - or a source of humour - you would like to share, then please get in touch. Visitors are more than welcome to share, publish or plagiarise these items!

Apologies for any missing cartoons.

For Better, for Worse...

A small boy was attending his first wedding. After the service, his cousin asked him, “How many women can a man marry?”

“Sixteen,” the boy confidently replied. His cousin was amazed that he had an answer so quickly.

“How do you know that?”  he asked.

“Easy,” the small boy said. “All you have to do is add it up, like the vicar said. 4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer.”

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by St. Peter at the pearly gates.

"In honour of this holy season," St. Peter said, "You must each possess something that
symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven."

The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. "It
represents a candle," he said.

"You may pass through the pearly gates," St. Peter said.

The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them
and said, "They're bells."

St Peter said, "You may pass through the pearly gates."

The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women's glasses. St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked,  "And just what do they symbolize?

The man replied, "They're Carol's."

More Goat, Vicar?                     

The young couple invited their elderly vicar for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the vicar asked their young son what they were having.

‘Goat,’ the little boy replied.

‘Goat?’ replied the startled priest. ‘Are you sure about that?’

‘’Yep,’ said the youngster. ‘I heard Dad say to Mum “Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner:.’
