The post isn't really about religion or putting any of them down Jack. I've heard this one before and didn't find it offensive.

Not chastising anyone here. I see where both of you are coming from.

I certainly didn't think my post would create a frisson. However, I always say, if people are feeling and thinking at all, it's a step in the right direction. If anyone is offended by the post remove it from the thread. It was not intended to do so.
I won't apologize for the words because they are not mine. They came to me from a minister. How close are all of you with your church or ministers, or priests? Do you think they lack a sense of humor? Well then you're not very close to them.
To Jack: is Irish, or Black or Californian a religion? Read again and you'll see that it's about ethnic and cultural stereotypes. If that offends you, so be it. Lighten up my friend. I now know that my God has a much better sense of humor than yours and I'm forever grateful for that.

You didn't do anything wrong in posting it! And there is no need to remove it at all!

Let's drop the "Offended" discussion and keep on bein' funny! THAT'S what this thread is about!!!

Ready to groan? (These are riddles you can ask your kids. They're complements of the Apple Cinnamon Cheereos box.)

What kind of apple has a short temper?

a crab apple


How do you make an apple turnover?

Push it downhill

What can a whole apple do that half an apple can't do?

Look 'round


Why did the bakery hire so many apples?

Because there was a lot of turnover

Defining calories:

Calories are little creepy things that get into your wardrobe at night and sew your clothes tighter...

My closet is infested with the little sh**s!
