A man standing in line at a checkout counter of a grocery store was very surprised
when a very attractive woman behind him said, “Hello!” Her face was beaming.
He gave her that “who are you look,” and couldn’t remember ever having seen her
before. Then, noticing his look, she figured she had made a mistake and apologized.
“Look,” she said “I’m really sorry but when I first saw you, I thought you were the
father of one of my children,” and walked out of the store.
The guy was dumbfounded and thought to himself, “What is the world coming to?
Here is an attractive woman who can’t keep track of who fathers her children!”
Then he got a little panicky. “I don’t remember her,” he thought, but MAYBE, during
one of the fraternity parties he had been to when he was in college, perhaps he did
father her child! He ran from the store and caught her in the parking lot and asked,
“Are you the girl I met at a party in college and then we had a little too much to drink
and spent the night together but I never called you again afterward?”
“No”, she said with a horrified look on her face.
“I’m your son’s Sunday School teacher.” 😱😳😁😎

Wednesday’s Quizzler is….​
Emperor Akbar once ruled over India. He was a wise and intelligent ruler, and he had in his court the Nine Gems, his nine advisors, who were each known for a particular skill. One of these Gems was Birbal, known for his wit and wisdom. The story below is one of the examples of his wit. Do you have it in you to find out the answer?

Once Emperor Akbar ordered a horse to be delivered to Birbal so that he could easily move about the kingdom. The stable-keeper however, was extremely jealous of Birbal, and decided to deliver a sick and weak horse to him. The horse was delivered to Birbal’s stable. The next morning, when Birbal went to proudly leave his house on a horse, he found the horse was dead. Looking at the weak and frail horse, he understood what must have happened. However he could not insult the Emperor or his gift, so he kept silent. Unfortunately for him, the Emperor observed him entering the palace grounds on foot and, when he entered the court, the Emperor immediately questioned him about the horse. What was Birbal’s diplomatic and accurate reply?

Answer: Birbal knew he could not accuse the stable-keeper directly of sending a bad horse as, indirectly, he would be accusing the Emperor and, for that, he may well follow the horse into the nether world. So he brightened up and told the Emperor, “Sire, the horse that you gifted me was so fleet footed that it covered the long and vast distance between earth and heaven in a single night!” Hearing this, the stable-keeper, who went and hid behind a pillar when he saw Birbal come without the horse, rushed out and prostrated before the emperor, completely in a panic. He confessed his crime to the Emperor and begged for mercy. He also asked Birbal for forgiveness and waited for the Emperor to announce a suitable punishment for him. Emperor Akbar was pleased at Birbal’s sense of diplomacy which prevented him from directly accusing the stable-keeper of sending him a sick horse and ordered the stable-keeper to provide Birbal with a good quality horse. As his punishment, the stable-keeper was ordered to clean Birbal’s stable and groom his new horse for a whole year in addition to his normal duties as the royal stable-keeper.
