He had them lined up and was preaching to them. The mother turned around to do some work.
A while later she heard meowing and scratching on the door.
She went to the window and saw Johnny baptizing the kittens.
She opened the window and said, 'Johnny, stop that! You'll drown those kittens.'
Johnny looked at her and said with much conviction in his voice:
'They should have thought of that before they joined my church.'
Thanks to my ma. Former PTA president. Back before the unions turned teachers against the kids. The PTA actually supported education back then. They taught us about energy. There were two type; kinetic and potential. Kinetic energy was characterized as motion. Stuff like waves, atoms, objects. Potential energy was characterized as stored energy. Stuff like chemical energy, energy stored by a wound-up spring. My coffee cup sitting on the edge of my desk.
The biggest fund raiser of the year for the PTA was the annual carnival. My favorite was the fishing pole. For three tickets you stuck a fishing pole with a magnet attached by a short line into the cut-out of a large box. What I didn't know--when I was little--was that grown-ups were inside the box. When you pulled your line out of the box a prize was attached. My favorite was a large, black plastic spider on a scissors. When you squeezed the scissors, the spider stuck out. I took the scissors off the spider and put the spider under my oldest sister's pillow that night.
Funniest night of my life.
