Short story about Don't Copy If You Can't Paste...

     Not too long ago, a large seminar was held for ministers and reverends in training. Among the facilitators were many well-known motivational speakers.One such speaker boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who wasn't my wife !"
     The crowd was shocked ! He followed up by saying, "That woman was my mother !" The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which was well received.

About a week later, one of the ministers who had attended the seminar, decided to use that joke in his sermon. As he shyly approached the pulpit one sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It was a bit foggy to him. Getting to the microphone he said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who was not my wife!"
  His congregation sat shocked, murmuring. After standing there for almost 10 seconds, trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out ".....and I can't remember who she was !" 
Moral of the story : Don't copy if you can't paste  :)

Years ago we had a brother, while giving a talk, told a joke. I did not really pertain to his talk except that his talk was was on giving encouragement and showing fellow feeling. When everybody laughed he commented on how some had not smiled the whole time he had been on the platform but now they had a smile on their face. He said that sometimes all it may take is something small to bring a smile to others.


Now ... the joke (yes, I have remembered it to this day - now, keep in mind that we live in Florida ... this brother was from Maine and, just like Southerners can "exaggerate" their accent - he could do the same with his Maine accent - and he did this for the punch line)


There was a Texan who owned a large ranch ... it covered a vast amount of acres making it several miles in every direction.


He thought about buying some land somewhere other than Texas and found a "ranch" for sale in Maine. He went to Maine to see it and talk terms with the owner.


After arriving in Maine, he was standing in front of the "ranch house" talking to the rancher as the proud owner bragged on how well kept his ranch was and on it's size ... one of the largest in the area.


"Just how big is this ranch?" asked the Texan.


"Well, see the road you came in on, that is where it begins. Now, if you look towards those trees down there, where the stream is, that is the back of the property. And see that white fence over there, that is one side and this fence here is the other side," answered the Maine rancher.


The Texan, thinking of his ranch in Texas told the other man, "You know, if you get into a car at my ranch house and drive all day, you still would not be to the other side of my ranch down home,"


"Yep," replied the other man, "I used to have a car like that once!"
