The Wool<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

One Christmas, Joe<br />

and Peter built a skating<br />

rink in the middle<br />

of a field. A shepherd<br />

leading his flock decided<br />

to take a shortcut<br />

across the rink.<br />

The sheep, however,<br />

were afraid of the ice<br />

and wouldn’t cross it.<br />

Desperate, the shepherd<br />

began tugging<br />

them to the other side.<br />

“Look at that,” remarked<br />

Peter to Joe,<br />

“That guy is trying to<br />

pull the wool over our<br />

ice!”<br />

Dozens of performers will sing, dance, act, and create an energetic Christmas show complete<br />

with an immersive light show produced by Jake Hodgkin. The overall emphasis is to give<br />

the feeling of an old-fashioned Christmas. If you are looking to get in the holiday spirit,<br />

don’t miss this show! *The matinee’s light show and projections will not have the full effect<br />

due to the fact that the Franco Center’s Performance Hall cannot be darkened during the day.<br />

My mother, a master<br />

of guilt trips, showed<br />

me a photo of herself<br />

waiting by a phone<br />

that never rings.<br />

“Mom, I call all the<br />

time,” I said. “If you<br />

had voicemail, you’d<br />

know.”<br />

"Soon after, my brother<br />

installed it for her."<br />

When I called the<br />

next time, I got her<br />

message: “If you are<br />

a salesperson, press<br />

one."<br />

"If you’re a friend,<br />

press two."<br />

"If you’re my son who<br />

never calls, press 911<br />

because the shock will<br />

probably give me a<br />

heart attack.”<br />

Dear Santa, I'm writing to let you know I was naughty and it was worth it!<br />

Mr. Yankees<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

A Red Sox fan walks<br />

into a Boston pub and<br />

spots a guy wearing<br />

a New York Yankees<br />

cap. “Drinks for everyone<br />

here, bartender!”<br />

shouts the Red Sox<br />

fan. “Except for<br />

Mr. Yankees!”<br />

The Yankees fan<br />

smiles and says,<br />

“Thank you!”<br />

Infuriated, the Red<br />

Sox fan orders another<br />

round of drinks for<br />

everyone except Mr.<br />

Yankees, who, again,<br />

thanks the man. This<br />

goes on for a while,<br />

until Mr. Red Sox asks<br />

the bartender, “What’s<br />

the matter with that<br />

guy? I’ve ordered<br />

rounds of drinks for<br />

everyone but him, and<br />

all he does is thank<br />

me. Is he nuts?”<br />

“No, he’s not nuts,”<br />

says the bartender.<br />

“He owns the place.”<br />

A Car For<br />

Christmas<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

Danny had recently<br />

passed his driving test<br />

and decided to ask<br />

his clergyman father if<br />

there was any chance<br />

of him getting a car<br />

for Christmas, which<br />

was yet some months<br />

away. “Okay.” said his<br />

father “I tell you what<br />

I’ll do. If you can get<br />

your ‘C’ level grades<br />

up to ‘A’s and ‘B’s,<br />

study your bible and<br />

get your hair cut, I’ll<br />

consider the matter<br />

very seriously.”<br />

A couple of months<br />

later Danny went back<br />

to his father who said<br />

“I’m really impressed<br />

by your commitment<br />

to your studies. Your<br />

grades are excellent<br />

and the work you have<br />

put into your bible<br />

studies is very encouraging.<br />

However,<br />

I have to say I’m very<br />

disappointed that you<br />

haven’t had your hair<br />

cut yet.”<br />

Danny was a smart<br />

young man who was<br />

never lost for an<br />

answer.<br />

“Look dad. In the<br />

course of my bible<br />

studies I’ve noticed in<br />

the illustrations that<br />

Moses, John the Baptist,<br />

Samson and even<br />

Jesus had long hair.”<br />

“Yes. I’m aware of<br />

that...” replied his<br />

father “... but did<br />

you also notice they<br />

walked wherever they<br />

went?”<br />

Loud Prayers<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

Just before Christmas,<br />

two brothers were<br />

spending the night at<br />

their Grandma’s house.<br />

At bed time, they knelt<br />

down to say their<br />

prayers.<br />

As they closed their<br />

eyes, one boy said in a<br />

loud voice, “Dear Lord,<br />

please ask Santa Claus<br />

to bring me a Playstation<br />

5, a telescope and<br />

a new bike.”<br />

His older brother said,<br />

“Why are you shouting?<br />

God isn’t deaf.”<br />

“I know,” said his brother,<br />

“but Grandma is.”<br />

Reindeer<br />

Games<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

According to the<br />

Alaska Department of<br />

Fish and Game, while<br />

both male and female<br />

reindeer grow antlers in<br />

the summer each year,<br />

male reindeer drop their<br />

antlers at the beginning<br />

of winter, usually late<br />

November to mid-<strong>December</strong>.<br />

Female reindeer retain<br />

their antlers till after<br />

they give birth in the<br />

spring. Therefore,<br />

according to EVERY<br />

historical rendition depicting<br />

Santa’s reindeer,<br />

EVERY single one of<br />

them, from Rudolph to<br />

Blitzen, had to be a girl.<br />

We should have<br />

known... ONLY women<br />

would be able to drag a<br />

fat man in a red velvet<br />

suit all around the world<br />

in one night and not get<br />

lost.<br />

I didn’t fall. The floor just needed a hug.<br />

Christmas<br />

Sweater<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

A guy’s mother gives<br />

him two sweaters for<br />

Christmas. The next<br />

time he visits her, he<br />

makes sure to wear<br />

one.<br />

As he walks into the<br />

house, his mother<br />

frowns and asks,<br />

“What..? you didn’t<br />

like the other one?”<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

Even with a thousand<br />

games, dolls and<br />

crafts to choose from,<br />

my customer at the<br />

toy store still couldn’t<br />

find a thing for her<br />

grandson.<br />

“Maybe a video or<br />

something educational?”<br />

I asked.<br />

“No, that’s not it,” she<br />

said.<br />

We wandered the<br />

aisles until something<br />

caught her eye, a laser<br />

gun with flashing lights<br />

and 15 different highpitched<br />

sounds.<br />

“This is perfect,” she<br />

said, beaming. “My<br />

daughter-in-law will<br />

hate it.”<br />

Directions<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

On the Sunday before<br />

Christmas the Reverend<br />

was walking down<br />

the street on his way<br />

to see a parishioner.<br />

However, he wanted to<br />

post a parcel urgently<br />

so he asked a young<br />

boy, Todd, where he<br />

could find the post<br />

office.<br />

When Todd had directed<br />

him, the Reverend<br />

thanked him and said,<br />

“If you’ll come to the<br />

Church this evening,<br />

you can hear me telling<br />

everyone how to<br />

get to heaven.”<br />

Todd replied, “I think<br />

I’ll give your sermon a<br />

pass. If you don’t even<br />

know your way to the<br />

post office, how will<br />

you lead me to heaven?”<br />

The Wool<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

One Christmas, Joe<br />

and Peter built a skating<br />

rink in the middle<br />

of a field. A shepherd<br />

leading his flock decided<br />

to take a shortcut<br />

across the rink.<br />

The sheep, however,<br />

were afraid of the ice<br />

and wouldn’t cross it.<br />

Desperate, the shepherd<br />

began tugging<br />

them to the other side.<br />

Connor Cyr (St. Doms), Tim Rucker, Gabriel Thomas (LHS), & Micah Joler (ELHS)<br />

“Look at that,” remarked<br />

Peter to Joe,<br />

“That guy is trying to<br />

pull the wool over our<br />

ice!”<br />

All I need are Christmas movies, pajama pants, and cookies.<br />

The Last<br />

Reindeer<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

A reindeer walked into<br />

Completely unphased,<br />

the barman poured out<br />

the lager and passed<br />

it to the reindeer, who<br />

handed over a 20<br />

dollar bill.<br />

As he handed over<br />

the change of a few<br />

coins, the barman said<br />

“I have to say, you’re<br />

first reindeer I’ve seen<br />

in here.”<br />

The reindeer studied<br />

the change very<br />

carefully and said. “Tell<br />

you what sunshine, at<br />

these prices I’m also<br />

the last reindeer you’re<br />

going to see in here.”<br />

Service?<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

It was a cold and misty<br />

Christmas morning<br />

in the very depth of<br />

winter after a heavy<br />

snowfall and only<br />

Farmer Evans and<br />

the Reverend Joseph<br />

Lancaster managed to<br />

arrive at the church for<br />

the morning service.<br />

“Well,” said Reverend<br />

Joseph, “I guess<br />

there’s no point in having<br />

a service today.”<br />

“Well that’s not how<br />

I see it.” said Farmer<br />

Evans smartly. “If only<br />

one cow turns up at<br />

feeding time, I still<br />

feed it.”<br />

All hope is not frost.<br />

“Merry Christmas to<br />

you, Mary Christmas.”<br />

That’s what the former<br />

Mary Young will be<br />

hearing this holiday<br />

season, after she married<br />

Brian Christmas<br />

recently.<br />

“It was meant to be,”<br />

Mary Christmas told her<br />

local newspaper. “God<br />

has a sense of humor.<br />

What are the chances<br />

that it would ever happen?”<br />

She has found,<br />

however, that she is not<br />

alone.<br />

Mary Christmas has<br />

been working at Ancestry.com<br />

for three years<br />

and discovered there<br />

are as many as 100<br />

other Mary Christmas’<br />

in the United States.<br />

“The last name of<br />

Christmas has its<br />

origins in Wales,” she<br />

said, “It was given to<br />

people that were born<br />

on Christmas Day.”<br />

A Promise<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

It was the day after<br />

Christmas at St. Peter<br />

and St. Paul’s church<br />

in Borden, Kent,<br />

England. Father John<br />

was looking at the<br />

nativity scene outside<br />

when he noticed the<br />

baby Jesus was missing<br />

from the figures.<br />

Immediately, Father<br />

John’s thoughts turned<br />

to calling in the local<br />

policeman, but as he<br />

was about to do so, he<br />

saw little Nathan with<br />

a red wagon. In the<br />

wagon, was the figure<br />

of the little infant,<br />

Jesus.<br />

Father John approached<br />

Nathan<br />

and asked him, “Well,<br />

Nathan, where did you<br />

get the little infant?”<br />

Nathan looked up,<br />

smiled and replied,<br />

“I took him from the<br />

church.”<br />

Father John then<br />

asked, “And why did<br />

you take him?”<br />

With a sheepish grin,<br />

Nathan answered,<br />

“Well, Father John,<br />

about a week before<br />

Christmas I prayed to<br />

Lord Jesus. I told him<br />

if he would bring me a<br />

red wagon for Christmas,<br />

I promised to<br />

give him a ride around<br />

the block in it.”<br />

Dreams<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

Jenna was taking<br />

an afternoon nap on<br />

Christmas Eve before<br />

the festivities.<br />

After she woke up,<br />

she confided to Max,<br />

her boyfriend, “I just<br />

dreamed that you gave<br />

me a diamond ring for<br />

a Christmas present.<br />

What do you think that<br />

means?”<br />

“Aha, you’ll know<br />

tomorrow,” answered<br />

Max smiling broadly.<br />

Getting old is tough. In my mind I'm 28 but my body says I'm senile.<br />

Remember not to leave a fire burning in your fireplace this Christmas Eve,<br />

or else you might wake up to a Crisp Kringle.


My favorite part of winter is watching it on TV from Florida.<br />

Roddy Doustout<br />

Wholesale Sales Representative<br />

ROOPERSBEVERAGE.COM<br />

Fun - Funny - Dedicated - Self Made<br />

Roopers has changed immensely since<br />

Roddy started 6 years ago! Completely<br />

self-made, Roddy built his<br />

own brand inside the Roopers shadow.<br />

Roddy has influenced the overall energy<br />

and business of Roopers thanks to<br />

his unique abilities. His rapport with<br />

his customers goes unmatched. You<br />

ride with Roddy for a day and you<br />

will be exhausted by the amount of<br />

hugs and love he gives to his customers.<br />

Roddy’s leadership in and out of<br />

the house helped build confidence and<br />

work ethic for his fellow colleagues.<br />

Roopers as a whole will strive because<br />

of employees like Roddy. He<br />

is not just an employee, but a close<br />

friend. We couldn’t be more blessed<br />

to have him as part of our team, as<br />

an employee, leader, friend and more<br />

importantly a dedicated father. Love<br />

ya Soda Pop!<br />
