I was surprised to receive a joke about unemployment insurance, but the resourceful readers of this blog have surprised me yet again with a joke about disability insurance.
“An Irishman with a bad leg hobbled into a restaurant one afternoon. He painfully sat down at a booth and asked the waitress for a cup of
coffee. The Irishman looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus over there?” The waitress nodded so the Irishman told her to give Jesus a cup of coffee too.
The next patron to come in was an Englishman with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth and asked the waitress for a glass of hot tea. He also glanced across the restaurant and asked “Is that Jesus over there?” The waitress nodded so the Englishman said to give Jesus a cup of hot tea too.
The third patron to come into the restaurant was a Hillbilly from Eastern Kentucky. He swaggered over to a booth, sat down and hollered “Hey there sweet thing, hows about getting me a cold glass of Coke!”. He too looked across the restaurant and asked “Is that God’s boy over there?” The waitress nodded so the Hillbilly said to give Jesus a cold glass of Coke too.
As Jesus got up to leave He passed by the Irishman and touched him and said “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Irishman felt the strength come back into his leg and got up and danced a jig out the door.
Jesus also passed by the Englishman, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The English man felt his back straightening up and he raised up his hands, praised the Lord and did a series of back flips out the door.
Then Jesus walked towards the Hillbilly. The Hillbilly jumps up and yells, “Hey man don’t touch me …… I’m drawing disability!”
