Did you hear the one about the two men who crashed in their private
plane onto a South Pacific island? They both survived.
One of the men brushed himself off and then proceeded to run all over
the island in order to determine their chances for survival.
After a thorough search of the island he rushed up to the other man
and declared, "This island is uninhabited, there is no food, there is
no water. We are going to die!"
The other man comfortably leaned against the fuselage of the wrecked
plane, folded his arms and responded, "I make $100,000 per week."
And then was quiet.
The first man, realizing his friend must not understand declared
again with strong conviction, "Listen, we are on an uninhabited
island. There is no food, no water. We are going to die!"
The other man, unruffled, again responded. "Listen, I make $100,000
Mystified, the first man, taken aback, but unwilling to be satisfied
with such an answer again repeated, "I'm telling you we ARE going to
die. There is no one else on this island. There is No food. There
is NO water. We are, I repeat, we ARE going to die."
Still unfazed, the first man looked the other in the eyes and said,
"Don't make me say this again. I make $100,000 per week. I pay a
10% tithe to the church. My pastor WILL find us!"
