Here's a little something I promised to share with Chad, and everyone else of course, in tribute to his night of jokes at IHOP. Enjoy! Oh, and if anyone else has one to add, please feel free to do so.
Ashes to ashes...
"A Very Good Reason Why You Don't Want to Gossip ...
Sarah, the church gossip and self-appointed arbiter of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several residents were unappreciative of her activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup truck parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She commented to George and others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. George, a man of few words, looked at her for a moment and just walked away.
He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing. Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Sarah's house..... and left it there all night."
