Welcome to another edition of the Saturday Funnies and you know the truth – I  did not write any of what you are about to read but instead harvested them from the funny emails that come to me each day. My favorite this week was “The Legendary Goat Caper.”It seems that in Montana seniors at various high schools across the stat participate in the Senior Prank and last year’s winner was the goat trick. This is where a pick-up load of boys got find three large billy goats and, after stealthily devising a way to get the goats into the school building at 5 a.m., they get some water-based paint – where it will not harm the goat – and paint a big “1”on both sides and the forehead of the billly.

They then took the second goat and adorned it with the number “2” in the exact same way. But on the last goat went a number “4.” They let loose the goats at 5 a.m. and, as all the children got to school at roughly the same time, the chaos was just perfect.

But what was even better is that the principal and the football coach spent the next two days in a futile attempt to locate the number “3” goat.

Ah, youth!

Let’s go to this week’s funnies …

THE POSTPONED TEST

One of my students could not take my college seminar final exam because of a funeral. "No problem," I told him. "Make it up the following week." That week came, and again he couldn't take the test due to another funeral.

"You'll have to take the test early next week," I insisted. "I can't keep postponing it."

“I'll take the test next week if no one dies," he told me.

By now I was suspicious. "How can you have so many people you know pass away in three weeks?" I asked.

“I don't know any of these people," he said. "But I'm the only gravedigger in town."

YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A BIG DOG WHEN …

* -- The sound of running water makes you jump up and yell, "OUTSIDE!"

* -- You tell your dog to sit, and he backs up until he finds a chair.

* -- It takes 3 people to get your dog on the scale at the vets.

* -- You walk your dog and everyone knows him by name, but you have no idea who these people are.

* -- You own a dog capable of pulling someone from a Port-a-potty.

* -- You carry a tape measure with you when shopping for a new vehicle.

* --You are hiking with a friend who later suggests that you ought to have an environmental impact statement done on your dog.

* -- You have given up on water dishes and you just use the bathtub.

* -- You have to move over when brushing your teeth because your dog wants a drink.

* -- You show a picture of your dogs and kids together, and the first person you point out is your dog.

* -- You've learned to force a smile when asked, "Do you have a saddle for that thing?"

* -- Your veterinarian has been able to put in a swimming pool, build a large home, buy jet skis and a vacation home in Florida.

* -- You're holding him straddled between your legs when the doorbell rings and you find yourself quickly transported straight to the front door.

WHEN WEARING GLASSES GOT TO BE COOL

I believe my daughter wants a pair of glasses. I don't know why she does. Perhaps glasses are now "cool" to have in school? But though she sees just fine, she still says she needs glasses.

I took her to the eye doctor just to check it out, though. She was asked to read the bottom row of letters on the eye chart.

She said, "All right, I can see the 'O' and the 'P' and the 'T,' but not the 'N' and the 'Z.'"

TEN THINGS YOU NEVER HEAR IN CHURCH

* -- Hey! It's my turn to sit in the front pew.

* -- I was so enthralled, I never noticed your sermon went 25 minutes over time.

* -- Personally I find witnessing much more enjoyable than golf.

* -- I've decided to give our church the $500 a month I used to send to TV evangelists.

* -- I volunteer to be the permanent teacher for the Junior High Sunday School class.

* -- Forget the denominational minimum salary, let's pay our pastor so he can live like we do.

* -- I love it when we sing hymns I've never heard before!

* -- Since we're all here, let's start the service early.

* -- Pastor, we'd like to send you to this Bible seminar in the Bahamas.

* -- Nothing inspires me and strengthens my commitment like our annual stewardship campaign!

HOW A CLEVER KID WON THE SCIENCE FAIR

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair last spring. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide."

And for plenty of good reasons, since:

* -- it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting

* -- it is a major component in acid rain

* -- it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state

* -- inhalation can kill you

* -- it contributes to erosion

* -- decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes

* -- it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients

He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical. Forty-three (43) said yes, six (6) were undecided, and only one (1) knew that the chemical was  … water!

The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"
