A Mama and Her Bible

Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers and prospered.  Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together about the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who lived far away in another city.

The first one said, "I had a big house built for Mama."  The second said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar theater built in the house."  The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."  The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible, and you know that she cannot read anymore because she can't see very well.  I met a preacher who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire Bible.  It took twenty preachers 12 years to teach him.  I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for twenty years to the church, but it was worth it.  Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it."

The other brothers were impressed.  After the holidays, Mom sent out her Thank You notes.  She wrote; "Milton, the house you built is so huge.  I live in only one room but have to clean the whole house.  Thanks anyway.  

Marvin, I am too old to travel.  I stay home; I have my groceries delivered; so I never use the Mercedes.  The thought was good.  Thanks.

Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound; it could hold 50 people; but all my friends are dead; I've lost most of my hearing; and I'm nearly blind.  I'll never use it.  Thank you for the gesture just the same.

Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift.

The chicken was delicious!  Thank you.


Geez, I was sure the punch was "The cat ate the big canary"!

Nicely done Whiz

Hear hear, Whiz.  Or here, here; whichever.  All-Star joke.  I shall now borrow it, for a time.  Thanks.

Ace; she wasn't even blonde, in it.
