That IS funny. Yep, prices seem to be very high, especially in Southern California. Gas prices are typically higher than three dollars here!




Definitely making a point.


That's funny! Wait I am understanding it right, aren't I? It is because of the wooden popsicle sticks?


This is a good one! Who else likes their popsicles with the joke on the popsicle stick?

@Riley D @Grace D

@Riley D, I didn't think about the wooden popsicle sticks!
@Grace D, I like those jokes although they're kind of cheesy.

Let's have a challenge! Who can post the cheesiest joke?

Jokes! (The hyphens are to separate the jokes, and these < are to separate the paragraphs in the last joke. All the paragraphs are part of the same joke)
Q. How long did Cain hate his brother?
A. As long as he was Abel.
Q. Did Eve ever have a date with Adam?
A. No, just an apple
Q. What is a missionary’s favorite kind of car?
A. A convertible
There were these three professionals talking about which profession was the oldest.
The Doctor says, “The Bible clearly says that God took a rib out of Adam to make a woman. And that clearly required surgery. Therefore the oldest profession is surely medicine.”.
The Engineer shakes his head and replies,”No, no, no. The Bible also says that God created the world out of void and cahaos. To do that, God must surely have been an engineer. Therefore, Engineering is the oldest profession.”
The Politician smiles smugly and leans discreetly forward. “Ah,” he declares,”but who do you think created the Chaos?”
A teacher asked her Sunday School class to draw pictures of their favourite Bible stories.
She was puzzled by a boy’s picture which showed four people on an aircraft, so she asked him which story it was meant to represent. ‘The flight to Egypt,’ he replied.
‘I see…And that must be Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus,’ she said, ’But who’s the fourth person?’
‘Oh, that’s Pontius – the Pilot!’
Several churches started having problems with squirrels damaging their buildings.
The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded that the squirrels were predestined to be there, and they should not interfere with God’s divine will.
At the Baptist church, the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistry. The deacons met and decided to put a water-slide on the baptistry and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and, unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim, so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week.
The Lutheran church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist church. Two weeks later, the squirrels were back when the Baptists took down the water-slide.
The Episcopalians tried a much more unique path by setting out pans of whiskey around their church in an effort to kill the squirrels with alcohol poisoning. They sadly learned how much damage a band of drunk squirrels can do.
But the Catholic church came up with a more creative strategy! They baptized all the squirrels and made them members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter.
Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue. They took the first squirrel and circumcised him. They haven’t seen a squirrel since.

@Caroline N


Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!
Did you know that the 2nd of July is when we actually received our independence and the 4th is when they signed the declaration of independence.
History lesson!
In 1773 The continental Congress published the declaration of independence in Philadelphia.

@ Kiara

Yeah. Have any of y'all watched the show Liberty's Kids? It's about some kids during the Revolutionary War. In it, on July 2, it shows (and I'm sure this didn't actually happen, but it's funny) John Adams standing up in front of the Continental Congress, making a speech about how July the Second would always be an American day of celebration, fireworks, and parties. It was funny.


Yes we’ve seen that ! One of my favorite parts is where onrri (?)says that James and Sarah going to be married so the British don’t force James him to fight


@Miri, those are so funny!


Yes! We watched some of them; I like it a lot!

@ Franz

Oh yeah, that was so funny. My favorite part was when Henri came up to James and said, all mad because he had to get more water in his pail, "John Adams kicked ze bucket!" And James said, "John Adams is dead?!!"

@ Miri

Haha! XD XD XD XD XD that's hilarious
@ KN yes! We actually have those!
@ Franz oh, yes, that's hilarious! I loved that part! Henri is so funny!


Liberty Kids is really fun! My younger sister and I borrowed it from a friend and haven't finished it yet. I saw the part Franz mentioned and the 'bucket' scene too. Those are some of the best parts.


Liberty’s Kids is amazing! My sister and I really like it, and the part with John Adams and the bucket is hilarious

Haha , took a bit for me to understand it!

a man was driving home from work when his wife called him. she said, be careful the police say some nut on the highway is driving the wrong way.
he said, one nut, my eye! there are hundreds of them.
god said to john, come forth and i will give you eternal life. john came fifth and received an electric toaster.
so, there was this round house that was two stories high, so it looked kinda like a snowman. it was pink, and the top half had like the bedrooms and kitchen and stuff, and the bottom half had the garage and the cat and dog beds. so a family lived in the house, a mom and dad, and a boy and a girl, and a cat and a dog. so the dad was reading and he got up to check on the cat and dog. he goes to the cat bed its fine. he goes to the dog bed and the dog has been stabbed.
so the dad asks the girl, did you kill the dog?
she says no i was sitting in my room playing with my dolls all day.
so he asks the boy, did you kill the dog?
he says, no, i was playing with my frisbee outside all day.
and then he asks the mom, did you kill the dog?
she says, no i was sitting in the corner reading all day.
which one of them is lying?


i have heard the squirrel one but not quite as extensively- not the jewish synagogue part

@ Gloriana

Good jokes!!! By the way, have you had WorldTeen a while? Because when I first got it I remember a Gloriana was here. Just wondering if you are the same one?

@ Gloriana
