The man walked up to the car and asked, “Are you going to San Diego?” “Sure,” answered the blonde, “do you need a lift?” “Not for me. I’ll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck. My problem is I’ve got two chimpanzees in the back which have to be taken to the San Diego Zoo. They’re a bit stressed already, so I don’t want to keep them on the road all day. Could you possibly take them to the zoo for me? I’ll give you $100 for your trouble.” “I’d be happy to,” said the blonde. So, the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of the blonde’s car and care- fully strapped into their seat belts. Off they went. Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of San Diego when suddenly, he was horrified!! There was the blonde walking down the street and holding hands with the two chimps, much to the amusement of a big crowd. With a screech of brakes, he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde. “What in the world are you doing here?” he demanded. “I gave you $100 to take these chimpanzees to the zoo!” “Yes, I know you did,” said the blonde,” but we had money left over − so now we’re going to Sea World!” Dinner blessings A woman invited some people over for dinner. At the table, she turned to her six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you like to say the blessing?” The girl replied, “I wouldn’t know what to say.” “Just say what you heardMommy say,” the mother answered. The daughter bowed her head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?” CSANews | SPRING 2020 | 49
