23. " When cannibals ate a missionary, they got a taste of religion."

When they ate the clown, one cannibal turned to the other and said, "Does this taste funny to you?"

And, when they saw that the missionary was in the pot but there was no fire, one cannibal said to the other,"Oh, no don't tell me. COLD CUTS AGAIN."

Great list of puns!

I saw where you reprinted Gail's mother's day comment in a post. I had seen that and was so touched. You need to just post it on you sidebar permanently or have it printed on a T-shirt to wear.

Nancy said...


I never mean to top you, I just hope to add to the fun you are already having.....

Darlene said...

* Joy - You have a great weekend, too.

* Granny Annie - I had to brag a little more. ;-). The T-shirt sounds like a great idea.

* Nancy - You can top me any time you want.
