Funny – I thought so too!

This morning, I read an editorial in a monthly parenting magazine. The author had made a  New Year’s resolution to laugh more. I thought that was a pretty good resolution. Ironically, this afternoon, while searching for quotes for my book , I came across these actual announcements in synagogue bulletins and newsletters.  Even spell check wouldn’t have helped these funny sentences. These were so funny I wanted to share.

Found in synagogue newsletters and announcements:

1. Don’t let worry kill you. Let your synagogue help. Join us for
our lunch after services. Prayer and medication to follow. Remember in prayer
the many who are sick of our congregation.
