A reader from Italy passes on this joke she got from someone in Greece:
A little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened.
Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00.
When the postal authorities received the letter to God, USA, they decided to send it to the President.
The president was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00 bill.The president thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read:
– – – – – – – – –
Thank you very much for sending that money. However, I noticed that for some reason you sent it through Washington, DC.
Those a**holes deducted $95.00 in taxes.
I guess the word about our Imperial Congress is getting around.
