A Gospel Doctrine teacher was exhorting the class to prepare themselves so they might avoid the wrath that would be visited upon the unrighteous. “I warn you,” he thundered, “there will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth!”
At that moment an old woman stood up. “Brother Bowen,” she exclaimed, “I have no teeth!”
“Sister Wendell,” replied the teacher, “Teeth will be provided!” (Best-Loved Humor of the LDS People, p. 121).

J. Golden Kimball: I am not going to announce any blood and thunder doctrine to you today. I have not been radical for four long months, not since I had appendicitis. I came very nearly being operated upon. I thought I was going to die for a few hours. People said to me, “Why brother Kimball, you needn’t be afraid. You’ll get justice.” “Well,” I said, “that is what I am afraid of” (Best-Loved Humor of the LDS People, p. 121).
