December 11 Humor

One night, a family was singing together for family home evening. Each of the children took a turn picking a song. Six-year-old Isaac chose “Book of Mormon Stores.” While singing, Dad noticed the boy using different lyrics. When they finished, he asked Isaac what the words of the song meant.

With great excitement, the little boy explained it all. “It’s about these guys that traveled across the sea and had a battle. They rode horses and were called the Laman Knights!” (Mormon Mishaps and Mischief, by D.N. Giles and C.L. Beck, p. 21)

If you have to endure a long-winded speaker:

Be glad you get to sit down through it all.

Be thankful you can hear.

Be appreciative that you’re not the one giving the talk. (Latter-day Saint Wit and Wisdom, by David J. Brown, p. 56)

J. Golden was talking with one of the brethren one time, and he said to him, “Brother Kimball, I don’t see how you can swear so much. Why I’d rather commit adultery than swear so much.”

J. Golden answered, “Wouldn’t we all brother? Wouldn’t we all?” (The J. Golden Kimball Stories, by Eric A. Eliason, p. 82)
