The pastor asked if any one in the congregation would like to express Praise for answered prayers.

A blonde lady stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise. Two months ago, my husband, Jim, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was smashed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him."

You could hear an audible gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Jim experienced.

She continued, "Jim was unable to hold me or the children and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation. They were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Jim's scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in place."

Again, the men in the congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Jim and the wire wrapping he has.

She continued, "Now, Jim is out of the hospital and the doctor's say, with time, his scrotum should recover completely."

All the men sighed with relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if any one else had anything to say.

A man rose and walked to the podium. He said, "Good morning, I'm Jim and I want to tell you (and my wife, ONCE AGAIN), the word is STERNUM."

Patty... you are a terror.. I was in pain thinking about it as I was reading... then the punch line really was a relief. Oh! I laughed, but not as much as Jane did when I read it out to her...

Oh Patty! Where do you get these from.

I can imagine you politely sitting at the end of a bar in a big old smokey beer swilling steel workers drinking house frantically scribbling in your note pad as you listen to the rufty tufty steel workers jokes!
