: Tall Tales from a New Jersey Christmas! (Humor)

Tall Tales from a New Jersey Christmas! (Humor)

Shortly before Christmas, Sammy who lives down the street, asked his Mom if he could have a new bike. She told him that the best idea would be to write to Santa Claus.

Happy Christmas (sxc)But Sammy, having just played a vital role in the school nativity play, said he would prefer to write to the baby Jesus.

Sammy went to his room and wrote, "Dear Jesus, I have been a very good boy and would like to have a bike for Christmas."

But he wasn't very happy when he read it over. So he decided to try again and this time he wrote, "Dear Jesus, I'm a good boy most of the time and would like a bike for Christmas."

BMX (SXC-Francisc Zinz)He read it back and still wasn't happy with that one either. He tried a third version, "Dear Jesus, I could be a good boy if I tried hard, especially if I had a new bike."

He read that one too, but he still wasn't satisfied.

So, he decided to go out for a walk while he thought about a better approach. After a short time he passed a house with a small statue of the Virgin Mary in the front yard.

Sam crept in, stuffed the statue under his coat, hurried home and hid it under the bed.

Then he wrote this letter, "Dear Jesus, If you want to see your mother again, you'd better send me a new bike."

Only in New Jersey!


Smile and enjoy the last week in 2010!

I have a feeling he is definitely not going to get that bike after stealing Mother Mary! Thanks for the laugh.
