The Dirty Diner – Humor Unplugged
Wisdom – the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1502 of our trek, and it is time for our 3-minute mini-trek called Humor Unplugged. Our Thursday podcast will provide a short and clean funny story to help you lighten up and live a rich and satisfying life – something to cheer you and give a bit a levity in your life.
We are told in 15:30&version=NLT">Proverbs 15:30, “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.” We are also encouraged in 17:22&version=NLT">Proverbs 17:22, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Consider this your vitamin supplement of cheer for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s funny, which is titled…
The Dirty Diner
George and Bill were on a road trip out west, and the towns were few and far between. It was getting rather late in the day, and they both were feeling a bit tired, so they decided to stop at a diner for a cup of coffee. As they entered “The Last Chance Diner,” they couldn’t help but notice that it was a greasy spoon of a place.
They saw a booth towards the back of the diner and proceeded towards it. Before they slid into a booth, George had to brush the crumbs off the seat, and Bill took a napkin from the holder and swiped at a spill on the table. Sally, the waitress, came over, chewing loudly on gum, and asked if they wanted some menus.
“No, thanks,” said George. “I’ll just have a cup of black coffee.”
“I’ll have black coffee too,” replied Bill. “And please make sure the cup is clean.”
Sally shot Bill a nasty look. She turned and marched off into the kitchen.
About five minutes later, Sally was back with a tray with cups on it. “Two cups of black coffee,” Sally announced. “Which one of you wanted the clean cup?”
I hope that brought a smile to your face today. If it did, pass your smile on to someone else; we all could use a kind smile each day. Our Thursday thought is, “When you go to a restaurant, the less you know about what happens in the kitchen, the more you enjoy your meal.”
Here is our verse for today.
A bowl of vegetables with someone you love is better than steak with someone you hate.
As you enjoy these nuggets of humor, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
