Contrary to Internet search engine wisdom, farting does not burn 67 calories and is not a practical weight loss mechanism.

I think a lot of people forget that there are many RSS feeds on LJ...and Snopes is one of them. This is the funniest thing I have read in a while!

Dear Grand-daughter,

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus ' bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting.

So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed! I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed.

It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed. I found that lots of people love Jesus!

While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God! Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!' What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

Everyone started honking! I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!

There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach.

I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. My grandson burst out laughing. Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared.

So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!!

Will write again soon,
Love, Grandma

[Error: unknown template qotd] I love corny jokes! The cornier the better! When I was a teenager I hated them and said "That's so corny!" a lot. Something changes in old age ;-) And speaking of...

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."

The husband said, "You are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."

Wife replies, "No you should do it, and besides it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."

Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me." So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and shows him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says:

I haven't seen this bunch before...

Dear God, Are you really invisible or is that just a trick? Lucy

Dear God, I want to be just like my Daddy when I get big but not with so much hair all over. Sam

Dear God, In Bible times did they really talk that fancy? Jennifer

Dear God, thank you for the baby brother, but what I really prayed for a was a puppy. Joyce

Dear God, please put another holiday between Christmas and Easter. There is nothing good in there now. Ginny

Dear God, maybe Cain and Abel wouldn't kill each other so much if they had their own rooms. It works with me and my brother. Larry

Dear God, I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only four people in my family and I can never do it. Nancy

I'm not much for April Fools, although I enjoy a good fake news story. CBC Newsworld really had me going a few years ago when they reported that it was discovered that slowing down the gobbling of turkeys resulted in phrases (namely, April Fools!). I'm not sure why I would be close to even believing something like that, given how I'm always reading SNOPES.

The Calgary Sun is very good at riling people up with their fake news stories, such as the Multinova (speed trap photos) helicopter. They seem to have a talent for getting the public's goad. I'm pretty sure this story about tollbooths on Deerfoot is fake :-) Tomorrow we'll see how many people wrote angry letters today :-)
