Amish Elevator

1A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were, for the first time, in a shopping mall.

They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

The boy asked, ‘What is this Father?’

The father (never having seen an elevator) responded: ‘Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don’t know what it is.’

2While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button.

The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a tiny room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.


The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son….. 

‘Quick, go get your Mother.’

Not two weeks ago, Hamas officials called for the killing of all Jews worldwide. And a week before that, Hamas’ leadership…

Wonderfully put.


In the Midwest about twenty-five years ago, just about the time that common sense began its long sabbatical from which it has yet to return, a case came to court which involved a chicken farmer and a chicken thief.  The case was brought against the farmer by the crook.

The farmer had noticed that his chickens were diminishing in number, several at a time.  As he examined the coop he saw no evidence that a fox might be getting in among them as there were no feathers or mutilated chicken parts lying around.  So he concluded correctly that the thief was a human.

In order to preserve his flock and his livelihood, he set up a deterrent – a loaded shotgun inside the barn that would be activated if a person opened the door without disabling this trap.  He also posted a large sign warning whoever the thief was that…
