One bright, beautiful
Sunday morning, everyone in the tiny town of Johnstown got up early and went
to the local church. Before the services started, the townspeople were sitting
in their pews and talking about their lives, their families, etc.
Suddenly, the Devil
himself appeared at the front of the congregation. Everyone started screaming
and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort
to get away from evil incarnate.
Soon everyone was
evacuated from the Church, except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in
his pew, not moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God’s ultimate enemy
was in his presence. Now this confused Satan a bit, so he walked up to the man
and said, “Don’t you know who I am?”
The man replied,
“Yep, sure do.”
Satan asked, “Aren’t
you afraid of me?”
ain’t,” said the man.
Satan was a little
perturbed at this and queried, “Why aren’t you afraid of me?”
The man calmly
replied, “Been married to your sister for over 48 years.”
