Jokes for Lent

Ruth Gledhill writes a rather good blog for The Times Online and is their religious correspondent to boot.  Disappointed by the lack of jokes on the CofE’s Love Life Live Lent site she’s posted a few of her own and invited us all to do the same. I like the one about Dawkins and, given that my partner is Catholic I rather like the one about the Catholic mum, though Dave’s mum didn’t actually react like that at all… check it out and you’ll see what I mean.

  1. Dear Friends, Happy Fool’s Day!!

    The rabbi of Chelm and one of his students were spending the night at the inn. The student asked the servant to wake him at dawn because he was to take an early train. The servant did so. Not wishing to wake the rabbi, the student groped in the dark for his clothes and, in his haste, he put on the long rabbinical gabardine. He hurried to the station, and, as he entered the train, he was struck dumb with amazement as he looked at himself in the compartment mirror.
    “What an idiot that servant is!” he cried angrily. “I asked him to wake me, instead he went and woke the rabbi!”

    Happy April Fool’s Day!
