Repent O Scottish Sinner

17 Feb

Repent O Scottish Sinner……

There was a Scottish painter named Smokey Macgregor who was very interested in making a penny where he could, so he often thinned down his paint to make it go a wee bit further.

He got away with this for some time, but eventually the Baptist Church decided to do a big restoration job on the outside of one of their largest buildings.

Smokey put in a bid and, because his price was so low, he got the job.

So he set about erecting the scaffolding and setting up the planks, and buying the paint and, yes, I am sorry to say, thinning it down with water…

Well, Smokey was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly completed, when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, the sky opened, and the rain poured down washing the thinned paint from all over the church and knocking Smokey clear off the scaffold to land on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles of the thinned and useless paint.

Smokey was no fool.
He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so he got down on his knees and cried:
“Oh, God, Oh God, forgive me; what should I do?”

And from the thunder, a Mighty voice spoke..

“Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!”

    This is a classic of the type of Really Awful Joke I try to invent from time to time in the hopes of this supreme accolade:

    GROAN! 🙂

      It helps having a warped sense of humour and access to newspapers.
      Just wish I could draw cartoons – what I time I could have! But my feeble attempts dont convey what I would like to see so I no longer try.

        It is a terrible challenge for cartoonists. The events themselves are suce a farce it makes it hard to make them even more so.
