TODAY’S SPECIAL: “A Shoplifter Funny” The manager of a grocery store nabbed a shoplifter in the act. He was escorting the suspect to his office, near the cash registers, when the shoplifter tried to run away.
After a brief scuffle the manager was able to wrestle the thief to the floor. He looked up to see a number of surprised customers staring at him.
“Everything’s fine, folks,” the manager assured them. “This guy just tried to go through the express line with more than ten items.”

TODAY’S SPECIAL: From the book, The Best Golf Stories Ever Told” – “Golf & The Parson”:
There is the story of the golfing parson who could not keep from swearing when the balls went wrong.
His friend told him, “Golf and the ministry don’t seem to go together. Take my advice before it’s too late, and give it up, Thomas.”
A few months later Thomas met his friend again.
“You were right, Jamie, “cried the parson cheerily, “they didn’t run well in harness; golf and the ministry. I have followed your advice, I have given it up.”
“Then what are you doing with that sack of clubs?” Inquired Jamie.
“What am I doing with them? Repeats the puzzled Thomas. Why I am going to play golf with them.” A light broke upon him. “Great Heavens man!” He continued, “ye didn’t think twas the golf I’d given up?”
