Prior to a big dinner, a little boy was requested to return thanks. At that point, the family bowed their heads in expectation.
The young fellow started his prayer. He expressed gratitude toward God for all his friends, naming them individually.

After that, he said thanks to God for his excellent family, naming his mother, father, brother, sister, grandmother, grandfather, and all his aunts and uncles.
Then he started to say thanks to God for the food. He expressed gratefulness for the turkey, the dressing, the fruit salad, the cranberry sauce, the pies, and the cakes.

Then he paused, and everybody waited. After a long silence, the boy looked up at his mother and asked:
"On the off chance that I express gratitude toward God for the broccoli, won't he know that I'm lying?"

Reading a comical story like this one is always fun and will light up our day. Here's a bonus joke to keep you laughing some more!
One Sunday, a man chose to skip Mass and head to the hills to do some bear hunting. Unfortunately, he and a bear collided as he rounded the corner on a dangerous twist in the trail. The incident sent him and his rifle tumbling down the mountainside.
Before he knew it, his rifle went one way, and he went the other, landing on a rock and breaking both his legs. That was the uplifting news. The awful news was the savage bear charging at him from a distance, and he couldn't move.

"Oh, Lord," the man prayed, "I'm so sorry for skipping Mass today to come out here and hunt. Please forgive me and grant me just one wish . . . Please make a Christian out of that bear that's coming at me. Please, Lord!"
That exact moment, the bear skidded to a halt, fell to its knees, clasped its paws together, and started to pray aloud right at the man's feet.
"Dear God," the bear said, "Bless this food I am about to receive."
