A dear friend of ours, gave me the definition of an Australian term “Sticky Beak” as a person who puts his or her nose into other people’s business… or one could say “she is a bit of a sticky beak”!
I think it is a good description for this “funny” for today. The title of this joke, as it came to me was “How to stop church gossip” and of course it is meant as a joke, and I forward the joke with love in my heart for all our fellow parishioners, I am certain we don’t have any gossips in our church as Pastor has preached on this subject several times. 🙂
Perhaps this will be your laugh for the day and could apply to anyone, not just a church member. For those of you old enough, I am sure you remember nosey Mrs. Kravitz who lived across the street from Samantha and Darrin on the television sitcom “Bewitched”. I would think Mrs. Kravitz could be described as the Ultimate sticky beak! ;0
I just love comedies!
I love to laugh!
I love to laugh at myself too…
How to stop church Gossip
Mildred, the church gossip and self-appointed monitor of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose into other people’s business.
Several members did not approve of her extra-curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.
She emphatically told Frank (and several others) that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing!
Frank, a man of few words, looked at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn’t explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.
You gotta love Frank’s sense of humor!
