Tall Tales from the Jersey Shore! (Humor)

The Jersey Shore is now experiencing the aftermath of Hurricane Irene.  In New Jersey that means flooding.  So I share with you this tall tale.  It's an oldie, but goodie.

RainIt had been raining for days and days, and a terrible flood had come over the land. The waters rose so high that one Jersey Shore man was forced to climb onto the roof of his house.


As the waters rose higher and higher, a man in a rowboat appeared, and told the Jersey Shore Roof Dude to get in.

"No," replied the dude on the roof. "I have faith in the Lord; the Lord will save me."

So the man in the rowboat went away. The dude on the roof prayed for God to save him.

"No," replied the roof dude. "I have faith in the Lord; the Lord will save me."

So the man in the speedboat went away. Again the roof dude prayed for God to save him.

The waters continued to rise. Suddenly a helicopter appeared and over the loudspeaker, the pilot announced he would lower a rope to the roof dude.

 "No," the roof dude said. "I have faith in the Lord; the Lord will save me."

The waters rose higher and higher, and eventually they rose so high that the dude on the roof was washed away, and alas, the roof dude drowned.

Upon arriving in heaven, the man marched straight over to God.

"Heavenly Father," the roof dude said, "I had faith in you, I prayed to you to save me, and yet you did nothing. Why?"

God gave him a puzzled look, and replied "Roof dude, I sent you two boats and a helicopter, what more did you expect?"

It's Monday, Smile & Share It!
