Loaded For A Laugh

Three blondes die, and find themselves standing before St. Peter.

He informs them that to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, they have to
answer just one question, "What is Easter?"

The first blonde says, "Easter is when we have a big feast, and give thanks, and eat turkey, and..." St. Peter says, "No. That's Thanksgiving," and banishes her to hell.

The second blonde says, "Easter is when we celebrate Jesus' birth, and we give each other presents, and we...." "That's Christmas!" says St. Peter, and banishes her to hell too.

The third blonde says, "Easter is a Christian holiday that's about the same time as the Jewish Passover. Jesus was having dinner with some of his friends when this Judas guy betrayed him, and the Roman police arrested Jesus. Then they hung him on a big cross, and after awhile he died. Then they buried him in a tomb behind this really large boulder, and now..."

"Very, very good," exclaims St. Peter.

The blonde then continues..."Now every year the Jews roll away this large boulder, and Jesus comes out, and if he sees his shadow, we get six more weeks of basketball."


  1. Oh good one!!! And thank you for your comment on Gropius. It has inspired another blog post as I try to tackle one month of the single "big" theme. So often we proclaim our love for things but do little to advocate for them. I appreciate you bringing that into front & center. Enjoy your day.

  2. Very funny. And I like the suppository ad although I wonder if they make suppository mortar bombs.

  3. Enough is enough and too much is to much.

  4. Gropious, my pleasure. I guess I've turned into an old hippie who's pissed at all the armchair activists. The Civil Rights movement didn't succeed by people sitting on their arses and the environment, or any other worthy cause, won't succeed without action. OK, I'm off my soap box.

  5. Mo... what a great idea. Maybe an H-motor would ease the pain of an entire neighborhood.

    WM... If there's one thing I ain't never done, I ain't never had too much fun.

    Dex... which one?

  6. I remember my mom telling me this joke when I was a kid. Thanks for the memory!

  7. hay hay hay....now. Mr C....No love for us blondies?
    (by the way I love this new layout. Did you get it for Easter?)

  8. So, three blondes walk into the supreme court...
    Hey it could happen.

  9. Mad Woman... thanks for stopping by. Your mama told you? Wow, I had no idea the joke was THAT OLD!! Just kidding, just kidding.

    JenJen... actually, like most men, I love blondes, but I also love a good joke. Thanks about the new look. Now and then I get bored and like to change things around.

    Bella... maybe we should start a joke day.

    Punch... the supreme court huh. Couldn't be worse than what we've got now. Welcome back.

  10. That's why some years it seems like basketball season goes on forever.


Sorry about the comment thingy folks. Too much spam.
