The Lighter Side

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven!

     So many times people, when congregating together will ask, "Didja ever wonder why...?" It conjures up guffaws as well as blank looks, but it does get you thinking. Therefore, we've got a slew of them and we bring you some of the puzzlers week with the rest next week. We begin with the story of a man, who was curious about religious orders. He approached a Dominican friar: "What can you tell me about the Dominicans?" "Well, in short, we were founded by St. Dominic as an answer to the Albigensians," replied the friar. "What about the Jesuits?" "They were founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola as a response to the Protestant Reformation." "So which is the greater order?" asked the questioner. The Dominican pondered for a second, then replied, "Well, when was the last time you met an Albigensian?"

Questions to ponder by pandering with punders...or: Didja ever just wonder why...
