Change comes from within

Time is a bitch


The other day, I saw this old lady looking at me through a window on the street, and I felt bad for her, you know?

(SOBBING).
Why does time do that to faces?

Glory, Glory, Halleluiah!

A priest is giving a young nun a lift home from church one day,
and as he’s shifting gears,
he rests his hand on the nun’s knee,
The young nun looked up at the priest and says,
“Father, remember Luke 14:10.”
The priest withdraws his hand, embarrassed.
Next time, they stop at a light,
He places his hand a little higher up on her thigh,
Again the nun says, “Remember Luke 14:10, Father .”
The priest apologizes,
“The flesh is weak,” he says.
So he drops her off, and when he gets home,
He reaches for his Bible and he flips to Luke 14:10.
Anyone know what it says? Hmm?
What does it say?
“Friend, come up higher, then shalt thou have glory!

________ Know your subject, people!

A Russian Joke

An American, a Hindu, and a Russian land in Purgatory.
A grey-winged angel with a huge whip hanging from his belt meets them and says: "Alright, here's the rules. Anyone who takes three strikes from my whip without screaming, can go straight to Heaven. You can shield yourselves with whatever you like. We've got everything here. Who's first?"

The American steps forward. "Alright, you've got three hours to prepare yourself." The American puts on a full-body Kevlar outfit, gets into a tank, drives it into a concrete bunker, the bunker is covered with 15 feet of dirt and inch-thick titanium plates.
The angel unravels his whip. SNAP! The titanium and the dirt are gone. SNAP! The bunker and tank are gone. SNAP! The American howls in pain, the ground opens up under his feet and he drops straight to Hell. "Next!", says the angel.

The Hindu steps forward. "You've got three hours to prepare yourself."
"I need only five minutes. I have studied Yoga all my life and can make myself immune to all pain."
The Hindu gets into a lotus position, hums mantras for a few minutes, and rises a couple of inches off the ground.
The angel unravels his whip. SNAP! SNAP! SNAP! The Hindu is completely unfazed. "Hmm, impressive. Alright, you're free to go."
"Thank you, but only after I see how this last one makes it out of this", says the Hindu, looking at the Russian. "Your call", says the angel.

The angel turns to the Russian: "What are you going to shield yourself with?"
"With the Hindu, of course."
