Here's a gem from our church newsletter:

"I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible just ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat..."Mom, that lady isn't wearing a seat belt!"

The best jokes are in church newsletters and Reader's Digest!
