Make the Best Out of It

The old couple ordered one burger, one fries and one soft drink at McDonalds. The guy who was seated and eating on a nearby table noticed the old couple ordering one meal. When the couple was seated on their table, they cut their burger into half, poured half of the soft drink to an empty cup and give half of the fries to the lady.

The guy stood up. “I can buy you another burger, fries and soft drink if you want”, the guy offered.

“Oh no, no, thanks!” they answered.

After seating back on his table, he noticed only the husband was eating. The lady never touched her foods. So, he stood up again and asked the couple.

“I was wondering why she’s not eating at all?” he asked.

“Oh, he’s the one who’s got the teeth today”, the wife replied.

The mass attendees clapped after Fr. John finished his joke.

Well, we have to do the best we can for every circumstances. We have to do the best we can for the things and talents we have been given. Basically that was theme for last Sunday’s gospel.

I thought the joke was funny and so I thought I’ll share it here. Hope you all had a wonderful week!

The joke was both funny and inspiring. Instead of complaining and grumbling what we don't have, we should always be grateful for what we have and made the best of them.

That was a cute joke. I like the togetherness angle of the story.
Thanks for visiting Grampys Place.

Yes, the joke was very funny indeed. But I wonder if anybody could ever share dentures with anyone. I doubt it. Not in a million years. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
