Saturday Funny: Father O’Malley and the jackass


An Irish Priest is transferred to Iola, Texas.

He rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine Spring day in his new West Texas mission parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside.

He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. So the priest promptly called the local police station. The conversation went like this:

“Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?”

“And the best of the day to yourself. This is Father O’Malley at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. There’s a jackass lying dead in me front lawn and would ye be so kind as to send a couple o’ yer lads to take care of the matter.”

Sergeant Jones, considering himself to be quite a wit and recognizing the priest’s Irish accent, thought he would have a little fun, replied, “Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!”

There was dead silence on the line for a long moment.

Then, Father O’Malley replied, “Aye, ’tis certainly true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin first, which is the reason for me call.”

Partners in Crime: birds steal food for dogs

#1: The pasta is in a bowl on the kitchen counter, accessible to the flying bird but not to the earth-bound dog. So parrot shares pasta with dog!

#2: Bird brings spaghetti from pot on stove and shares with dog on ground. Look how patient and polite the dog is.

#3: Accessibility is not the issue here, as bird, cat, and dog are all on the floor, in proximity to the food. But the crow brings morsels of food from the container and lovingly beak-feeds the cat and dog.

A bird empathizes with the dog on the ground, and so brings the inaccessible pasta to share with the dog.

A crow lovingly feeds morsels of food to her cat and dog housemates.

Just because non-human animals can’t speak our language doesn’t mean we can’t understand their behaviors — of inter-species kindness, friendship, and love.

We are Super Ninja Cats, masters of ancient art of Ninjutsu!

Ninjutsu (忍術) is the strategy and tactics of guerrilla warfare and espionage practiced by the sneaky Ninja (忍者) of feudal Japan.


Super Ninja Cats begin their training very early, when they are still babies.

baby ninja

To begin, the Ninja is a skillful athlete in leaping and jumping.


The Ninja is sneaky . . . .


An important Ninjutsu skill that every Ninja must master is how to hide in plain sight.

These Ninja trainees haven’t quite mastered the “hide in plain sight” technique yet.


Here are some Ninja trainees who are becoming very good at the technique.


A variation on “hide in plain sight” is the art of camouflage or blending into the background.


If your hiding place is discovered, a good Ninja resorts to the art of hypnotism.


These Ninja cats clearly have mastered the “hide in plain sight” technique. Can you find them?


Another essential Ninjutsu skill is scaling vertical surfaces.


Next, the Ninja acquires the impressive Ninjutsu technique of hiding in high places.



Because your enemy least expects an ambush from above!


Finally, the Ninja engages in open warfare.

Saturday Funny: Estate planning

A man was telling his buddy, “You won’t believe what happened last night!”

“My daughter walked into the living room and said: ‘Dad, do not pay off my college tuition loan, cancel my allowance, throw away all my clothes and take my iPhone and laptop. In addition, please take all of my jewelry to Salvation Army. Then, sell my car, take my front door key away from me and lock me out of your house. Then, disown me and never talk to me again. And don’t forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to anyone you choose.'”

“Holy Smokes”, replied the friend. “She actually said that?”

The father replied, “Well, she didn’t actually put it quite like that…. What she said was: ‘Dad, meet my new boyfriend, Mohammed. We’re going to work together on Hillary’s 2016 election campaign.'”
