The humor of Christ

July 23, 2021

in tribute to Elton Trueblood’s 1964 book of that title

Lady’s yanking up a bucket of water from a well.
Jesus comes by and says,
“Hey, gimme some of that water.”
She’s thinking: Go yank your own water, Bub.
Then he starts in on Husband Number One,
And Husband Number Two,
And Husband Number Three,
And by the time he gets to The Current Resident
She says, “Oh yeah? How do you know?”
He just looks at her with one of those smiles
That’s like: Cuz I do,
And she says, “Mister,
I’m drinking whatever you’re drinking.”
