Winners of previous months can also win a second or third time - There is no limit.

Please send me your favorite joke. The first one to send it, not only gets the credit, but a good bottle of wine or a box of chocolates (the winner’s choice).

Winner for June 2004

Santa Cruz , California
"Church Story"

There were not enough good jokes for a contest in May, so we go back to September, 1998:

Church Story

One bright, beautiful Sunday morning, everyone in Milpitas decided to attend church.

Before the service began, the townspeople sat in their pews and talked about their lives, their families, etc.

Suddenly, at the altar, Satan appeared!

Everyone began screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in their determined efforts to get away from Evil Incarnate.

Soon, everyone had left the church except for one man, who sat calmly in his pew, oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence.

This confused Satan.

Satan shouted, "Don't you know who I am?"

The man said, "Yes I do."

Satan said, "Well, aren't you afraid of me?"

The man said, "No I'm not."

Satan, puzzled, said, "And why aren't you afraid of me?"

The man replied, "I've been married to your sister for 25 years."
