    * KIDS IN CHURCH

    3-year-old, Reese:
    "Our Father, Who does art in
    heaven, Harold is His name.
    Amen."

    ----------------------------------------------------

    A little boy was overheard praying:
    "Lord, if you
    can't make me a better
    boy, don't worry about it.
    I'm having a real good
    time like I am."

    ----------------------------------------------

    After the christening of his baby brother in church,
    Jason sobbed all the
    way home in the back seat of the car. His father
    asked him three times what
    was wrong. Finally, the boy replied,

    "That preacher
    said he wanted us
    brought up in a
    Christian home, and
    I wanted to stay
    with you guys."

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin,
    5, and Ryan 3. The boys
    began to argue over who would get the first pancake.
    Their mother saw the
    opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were
    sitting here, He would say,
    'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'"
    Kevin turned to his
    younger brother and said,
    "Ryan, you be Jesus!"

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table,
    she turned to their
    six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you like to
    say the blessing?"
    "I wouldn't know what to say," the girl replied.
    "Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife
    answered.
    The daughter bowed her head and said,
    "Lord, why on
    earth did I invite all
    these people to dinner?"

    hahah funny SL

    This is not really a joke but its a funny letter from a belize guy who posted it to a belize list and it will probably bring back some memories to some a unnu...



    I grew up in Belize. Went to Holy Redeemer and SJC but left in 1969 before graduating. I was known as "coolie" and lived on Lovely Lane.

    I remember Sister Francine from Holy Redeemer. I think she was originally from Cayo. Her favorite saying was "Don't trouble trouble for if you trouble trouble, trouble will be sure to trouble you." In other words, don't f with her or she'll whip your ***. And she sure was capable of doing so. In fact, back in those days, we only had a couple of kids we'd call "bad bwai". One I remember was a boy named Harry. His nickname was "plum jaw". Plum Jaw decided he would take on Sister Francine one afternoon. Within a few minutes, Sister Francine had Plum Jaw hollering, "Stop Sista, stop. I sway a no gwain back chat nommo."

    A couple of the other teachers I remember from SJC are Brother Hurley, Brother Doughty, and Brother Cudihee. I saw Brother Doughty at a Belize dance in Chicago several years ago. I remember Brother Lord too. None of the brothers I knew went on to become priests. Once they landed in Belize and got a taste of Belizean coco, that was it. Father Combs, who taught Religion, had a very creative mind. He would stand in the doorway entrance to the classrom and demonstrate how Samson pushed the columns of the temple apart. He would then talk about the Roman soldiers coming into town on their motorcycles and stuff like that. He knew how to make studying religion a bit less boring. I took his Latin class for the first two years at SJC. I also remember Father Diekman, as I'm sure a lot of the students who liked his home-made beer. I don't think he was ever sober. In fact, someone told me he started the first local chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous in Belize City. Some of the other priests I remember are Father Stokle, Father Walsh, Father Costello and Father Webber.

    I'm trying desperately to remember the name of this one brother that used to run the library at SJC. One day in third form, Ansel Lanfiesta was raising his hand and snapping his fingers to get a teacher's attention. Ansel sat next to the louvered windows that SJC had back then. This brother was passing by, reached through the window and grabbed Ansel's hand and told him to quit snapping his fingers at the teacher. Ansel said something like "Bredda, leggo mi ****in' hand yu hear." Well, Bredda decided he'd go a bit further and twist Ansel's hand a bit. Ansel said, "If yu no leggo mi hand, a gwain buss yu rass yu know." Bredda finally let go Ansel's hand, at which time Ansel got up, ran out the door, picked up a stone and started chasing Bredda around SJC campus. He actually threw the stone at him and caught him in the head. Ansel was expelled from school and I believe he left Belize for the States shortly after that.

    I remember old man Carter who taught us World History. One incident in particular that I remember about him involved Ronnie Lindo. Anyone remember Ronnie Lindo? I think he is Dean Lindo's son or nephew. Well, Mr. Carter was still fairly new to Belize and wasn't yet well versed with Belizean words. He was teaching us some medieval bit of history and talking about cows and chickens and other farm animals. Well, Ronnie Lindo asked him if they had poke back in those days. The class started giggling and Mr. Carter wanted to know what he meant by that. Ronnie said, you know, poke, like pigs. Mr. Carter said, "Oh, pork. Yes Ronnie, they had pork back then too."

    Well, Ronnie thought he had gotten the better of Mr. Carter, but Mr. Carter was no fool. After class, he went and told Father Costello, who was then the headmaster, what Ronnie had said. A few minutes later, the announcement came over the PA system "Ronnie Lindo, please report to the headmaster's office." JUG JUG JUG.

    Do any of you guys remember Miss Ellen Waite? I think that was her name. She would wear these short, short skirts. I think she used to teach us Spanish in Third Form. She would sit provocatively on the desk in front of the class and ever so often, give us young boys a sneak of her buff top. Seriously, she would wear her clothes so that her pubic hair was clearly noticeable with just a slight parting of her legs. It drove us horny little boys wild! I think she also ran off with one of the Brothers, brother Mc something or other. Someone claimed they saw her and this brother at haulover bridge di nack dem ting.

    I remember Mr. Aspinal (aka "Jack Slade", aka "Tar Baby"). The name Simmonds rings a bell but I just can't put a face to it. I remember Carlos Perdomo and also Mr. Jex. What was the name of the one teacher that use to be a body builder? The one teacher I can't forget was that teacher from England who taught us Biology in Third Form. I think his name was Rod something or other. He had long red hair and a long beard. He was more than a few pounds overweight and he sweated profusely. He'd wear the same damn shirt everyday and you could smell him from two classrooms away. One of the students actually left him a bottle of Dettol one day.

    I wish I could buy one of those books they used to sell every year at SJC. I think they called it the mangrove or something like that. Sometimes, a lot of my old school mates come to my mind. I remember their faces but I just can't remember their names.

    Greg, are you the same Greg Chlup whose father owned Bata shoe store? We never hung out together but I remember that you were one of the few students at SJC that had a car and I use to see you some weekend nights in front of Bata when I was across the street at Palace.

    Thanks for the memories.

    In the beginning God covered the earth with broccoli
    and cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red
    vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and
    healthy lives.

    Then using God's bountiful gifts, Satan created ice
    cream and doughnuts.
    And Satan said, "You want hot fudge with that?"
    And Man said "Yes!" and Woman said, "I'll have another
    with sprinkles."
    And lo they gained 10 pounds.

    So God said, "Try my fresh green salad."

    And Satan presented crumbled Bleu Cheese dressing and
    garlic toast on the side.
    And Man and Woman unfastened their
    belts following the repast.

    God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy
    vegetable and olive oil in which to lightly sauté the wholesome
    vegetables."

    And Satan brought forth deep fried coconut shrimp,
    chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter and chocolate
    cheesecakefor dessert.
    And Man's glucose levels spiked through the roof.

    God then brought forth running shoes so that his
    Children might lose those extra pounds.

    And Satan came forth with a cable TV with remote
    control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And man and woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and
    started wearing stretch jogging suits.

    Then God brought forth lean meat so that Man might
    consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite.

    And Satan created the 99-cent double cheeseburger, and
    said, "You want fries with that?" And Man replied, "Yes! And
    super size 'em!"
    And Man went into cardiac arrest.

    God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

    And Satan created HMOs.

    His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools
    and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.

    The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings... An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.

    "I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life."

    "No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel.

    "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.

    "Yes," the farmer replied proudly.

    "I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of." And that he did. Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

    Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.

    What saved his life this time? Penicillin.

    The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill. His son's name?

    Sir Winston Churchill.

    Someone once said: What goes around comes around.

    Work like you don't need the money.

    Love like you've never been hurt.

    Dance like nobody's watching.

    Sing like nobody's listening.

    Live like it's Heaven on Earth.

    Three Homeless Guys


    It's a very cold winter's night, so three homeless guys huddle up close to stay warm.

    When they wake up in the morning, the guy on the left says, "I had a dream somebody was pulling on my dick."

    The guy on the right says, "I had a dream somebody was pulling on my dick."

    The guy in the middle says, "I had a dream I went Skiing."

    In the men's room at work, the boss placed a sign directly above the sink. It had a single word on it: "Think!"

    The next day, when he went to the men's room, he looked at the sign, and right below it, immediately above the soap dispenser, someone had carefully lettered another sign which read, "Thoap!"


    what a fool!

    Father waan bithc up sista poke!

    Priest and a Nun in the Desert

    A nun and a priest were crossing the Sahara desert on a camel. On the
    third day out the camel suddenly dropped dead without warning. After
    dusting themselves off, the nun and the priest surveyed their situation.
    After a long period of silence, the priest spoke.

    "Well sister, this looks pretty grim."
    "I know, father."
    "In fact, I don't think it likely that we can survive more than a day or two."
    "I agree."
    "Sister, since we are unlikely to make it out of here alive, would you do
    something for me?"
    "Anything father."
    "I have never seen a woman's breasts and I was wondering if I might see
    yours."
    "Well, under the circumstances I don't see that it would do any harm."

    The nun opened her habit and the priest enjoyed the sight of her shapely
    breasts, commenting frequently on their beauty. "Sister would you mind
    if I touched them?"

    She consented and he fondled them for several minutes.
    "Father, could I ask something of you?"
    "Yes sister?"
    "I have never seen a man's penis. Could I see yours?"
    "I supposed that would be OK," the priest replied lifting his robe.
    "Oh father, may I touch it?"

    This time the priest consented and after a few minutes of fondling he was sporting a huge erection.

    "Sister, you know that if I insert my penis in the right place, it can give life."
    "Is that true father?"
    "Yes it is, sister."
    "Then why don't you stick it in that camel and let's get the hell out
    of here."

    This one da fu GB!

    Gold Digger


    A knockout young lady decided she wanted to get rich quick, so she proceeded to find herself a rich 75-year-old man, planning to screw him to death on their wedding night.

    The courtship and wedding went off without any problem, in spite of the half-century age difference. The first night of her honeymoon, she got undressed, and waited for him to come out of the bathroom to come to bed.

    When he emerged, however, he had nothing on except a condom to cover a twelve-inch erection, and was carrying a pair of earplugs and a pair of nose plugs. Fearing her plan had gone desperately amiss, she asked, "What are those for?"

    The elderly groom replied, "There are two things I can't stand: the sound of a woman screaming, and the smell of burning rubber."
