THIS IS THE FUNNIEST THING I’VE HEARD IN A LONG TIME….ENJOY !…. Father Brian

 

Imagine yourself to be the nun that is sitting at her desk grading these papers all the while trying to keep a straight face and maintain her composure!

 

PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE WORDING AND SPELLING.  IF YOU KNOW THE BIBLE EVEN A LITTLE, YOU’LL FIND THIS HILARIOUS! IT COMES FROM CATHOLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEST.  KIDS WERE ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE OLD AND NEW TESTMENTS.    THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS ABOUT THE BIBLE WERE WRITTEN BY CHILDREN.  THEY HAVE NOT BEEN RETOUCHED OR CORRECTED. INCORRECT SPELLING HAS BEEN LEFT IN.

 

1.      IN THE FIRST BOOK OF THE BIBLE, GUINESSIS, GOD GOT TIRED OF CREATING THE WORLD SO HE TOOK THE SABBATH OFF.

 

2.      ADAM AND EVE WERE CREATED FROM AN APPLE TREE. NOAH’S WIFE WAS JOAN OF ARK NOAH BUILT AND ARK AND THE ANIMALS CAME ON IN PEARS.

 

3. LOTS WIFE WAS A PILLAR OF SALT DURING THE DAY, BUT A BALL OF FIRE

    DURING THE NIGHT.                                           

 

4.      THE JEWS WERE A PROUD PEOPLE AND THROUGHOUT HISTORY THEY HAD TROUBLE WITH UMSYMPATHETIC GENITALS.

 

5.      SAMPSON WAS A STRONGMAN WHO LET HIMSELF BE LED ASTRAY BY A JEZEBEL LIKE DELILAH.

 

6.      SAMSON SLAYED  THE PHILISTINES WITH THE AXE OF THE APOSTLES.

 

7.      MOSES LED THE JEWS TO THE RED SEA WHERE THEY MADE UNLEAVENED BREAD       WHICH IS BREAD WITHOUT ANY INGREDIENTS.

 

8.      THE EGYPTIANS WERE ALL DROWNED IN THE DESSERT. AFTERWARDS MOSES WENT    UP TO MOUNT CYANIDE TO GET THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

 

9.   THE FIRST COMMANDMENTS WAS WHEN EVE TOLD ADAM TO EAT THE APPLE.

 

10.  THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT IS THOU SHALT NOT ADMIT ADULTERY.
