    OK, I know the moderators will move this one before long, but it was just too funny to not pass along. Happy Holidays, one and all.

    A preacher inquires about a String trimmer for sale along side of the road. The owner, a 14 year old kid tells the preacher it works fine and pockets his 10 bucks. The next day the preacher returns and tells the boy that the trimmer will not crank. Showing the boy blisters on his hands from the pull rope, he says "I've been trying to crank this thing for a full day now". Jimmy(the boy) responds "well have you tried cursing at it"? "Of course not" the preacher says, "I 'm a man of God, I don't use such language. Why I don't think I even know any curse words" Jimmy responds, "you just keep pulling on that rope, they will come to ya".
