Raphael runs to his father and starts talking to him urgently, “Dad, dad…” -

His father turns to him angrily and says, “I’ve had it with you constantly interrupting me.

From now on you’ll speak only when I’ve asked you something!” -

Raphael thinks for a second and continues, “OK dad, can you please ask me if you’ve forgotten to put in the handbrake and if your car is now rolling down the road?”

Lol, T(h)ink, indeed - but it was an emergency - or do you think that handing out a written "SOS" would have helped?

That would have been better, Marianne.  :D

The Vow of Silence

A man wanted to become a monk so he went to the monastery and talked to the abbot (the head monk). The abbot said, "You must take a vow of silence and can only say two words every three years." The man agreed.

After the first three years, the abbot came to him and said, "What are your two words?"  

"Food cold!" the man replied. The abbot made sure the meals are not cold.

Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, "What are your two words?"

"Robe dirty!" the man exclaimed. The abbot ordered his robe be washed.

Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, "What are your two words?"

- "Bed hard!". The abbot made sure the mattress got re-stuffed.

Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, "What are your two words?"

- "I quit!" said the man.

"Well," the abbot replied, "I'm not surprised - you've done nothing but complain since you got here!"

LOL, but wait a minuteWhy is the abbot allowed to speak so much?  Shouldn't he be setting a good example???

Virginia Nov 25, 2017

Such fun, Marianne, and your jokes often have a ring of true experience, also!

Marianne Virginia Nov 25, 2017

Lol, the jokes I found on-line may be fiction, and are often exaggerated, but they remind much of similar "slips", lessons, experiences or accidents seen in everyday life, found in records, news, literature, etc.
