HILARIOUS JOKES AND HUMOR ARCHIVES
A rat looked through a crack in the wall to see the farmer
and his wife opening a package. What food might it contain?
He was aghast to discover that it was a rat trap. Retreating
to the farmyard the rat began to proclaim, "There is a rat
trap in the house, a rat trap in the house!"
The chicken clucked and scratched and, raising her head,
said, "Excuse me, Mr. Rat, I can tell this is a grave concern
to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be
bothered by it."
The rat ran to the pig and with a plea in his voice, said,
"There is a rat trap in the house, a rat trap in the house!"
"I am so very sorry Mr. Rat," sympathized the pig, "But
there is really nothing I can do but pray. Be assured you
are in my prayers."
The rat turned to the cow, feeling quite desperate. "Like
wow, Mr. Rat," the cow said, "A rat trap. Oh boy, like that
really puts me in grave danger."
So the rat, feeling very dejected, returned to the house to
face the farmer's rat trap alone. That very night a sound
was heard throughout the house, like the sound of a rat trap
catching its prey.
The farmer's wife rushed to see what was caught. In the
darkness she did not see the venomous snake whose tail the
trap had caught, and the snake bit her. The farmer rushed her
to the hospital.
The farmer's wife returned home from the hospital with a
desperate fever. Now everyone knows you treat a fever with
fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the
farmyard for the soup's main ingredient. His wife's sickness
continued to worsen, and friends and neighbors came to sit
with her around the clock. The farmer, to feed them, had to
butcher the pig.
The farmer's wife did not get well. In fact, she died. Many
people came for her funeral. So many, in fact, that the
farmer had to slaughter the cow to provide enough meat for
all of them to eat.
So the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and
you think it does not concern you, remember that when there
is a rat trap in the house the whole farmyard is at risk.
Is there a person God has placed near you that could benefit
from you allowing God to show His concern and compassion
through you to them?
Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that
weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high
things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in
your own conceits.
Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in
the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in
you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not
yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is
written, "Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst,
give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of
fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil
with good. -Romans 12:15Previous Joke | Back to the Archives | Next Joke
