.......another brain teaser.
We are having a massive Lenten Mass at church tonight. (This isn't the brain teaser, by the way, this is just the explanation of where I'm going). I have spent the entire morning sweeping, mopping and pew polishing, in readiness for the eighteen priests and visitors from five other parishes who will be attending.
All the candles have been replaced, cups and saucers are at the ready, someone has been despatched to Costco for cream cakes and scones and Fr. J has given us his rendition of 'Danny Boy' over the mike to check the sound system is working properly.
The Peacemaker is doing her bit with the Year 6 choir, and apparently, the Father of This Lot will also be in attendance to offer his support. (Clearly, God thinks my life is not stressful enough, and that I need to be sitting in a pew near the front playing Happy Families whilst worrying whether the temperamental urn in the vestry will boil the water in time or whether we'll have to invite them all to the pub up the road when it's over). Even the Football Fanatic has turned down the chance of attending a Reserves match at Old Trafford, so you can see what a big occasion it is.
SO......seeing as I won't be here for a large part of the evening, I am leaving you with this:
Four men were in a boat on the lake.
The boat turned over, and all four men sank to the bottom of the lake,
yet not a single man got wet!
Comment moderation is on, for THE CHEATERS!
I could name names, but you know who you are!!
Good luck! See you later!
(Oh, and I know there's only two men in the picture, but you try finding a retro graphic with four men in a boat when you're trying to remember whether you moved the crate of Christmas decorations out of the confessional box).
ANSWER: Not a single man got wet because......
THEY WERE ALL MARRIED!!
Comments back on so you can see who all the clever people were who got it right!
