A little Corny Humour

 I came home to this in my Inbox this evening.  A little bit of corny humour to try and cheer myself up before I commit virtual hari kari!

Please don't shoot the messenger!!

There was a Scottish painter named  Smokey MacGregor
who was very interested in making a penny where he could,
so he often thinned down his paint to make it go a wee bit further.

As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but
eventually the Baptist Church decided to do a big
restoration job on the outside of one of their biggest buildings...
Smokey put in a bid, and, because his price was so low, he got the job.
So he set about erecting the scaffolding and setting up
the planks, and buying the paint and, yes, I am sorry to say,
thinning it down with turpentine.
Well, Smokey was up on the scaffolding, painting away,
the job nearly completed, when suddenly there was
a horrendous clap of thunder, the sky opened,
and the rain poured down washing the thinned paint
from all over the church and knocking Smokey clear off
the scaffold to land on the lawn among the gravestones,
surrounded by telltale puddles of the thinned and useless paint…

Smokey was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from
the Almighty, so he got down on his knees and cried:
"Oh, God, Oh God, forgive me; what should I do?"
And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke...
."Repaint! Repaint!
And thin no more!"
  Have a good evening
