My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!

Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and she said, 'Johnny, what is the matter?' Little Johnny responded, 'I have pain in my side.. I think I'm going to have a wife.'
