The Joy of Faith

If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?

Sometimes I wake up grumpy. Other times I let her sleep.

WHO'S STUPID? There's a little fellow named Bubba who hangs out at Martin's Convenience Store.  Mr. Martin, the owner hasn't figured out what Bubba's problem is, but the boys 'round town like to tease him.  They say he's not hittin' on all eight... just not too bright.  As evidence, often they'll offer lil' Bubba his choice between a nickel and a dime.  Now Bubba, he always takes the nickel...  They say, because it's 'bigger' and they all get a big chuckle.  One afternoon, just after Bubba grabbed his nickel, Mr. Martin pulled him off to one side and said, "Bubba, those boys are making fun of you.  They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the nickel.  Are you grabbing the nickel because it's bigger, or what?"  Bubba sorta grinned and said, "Well, if I took the dime, reckon they'd quit doing it!"

Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup.  When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words, "Give me all your money or I'll shoot," the man shouted, "that's not what I said!"
