Sometimes you just have to laugh

After much effort that has gone into procuring a replacement TV of equal value (see the blog post here)  I was sent this joke.  I had to post it because I think I have found my next burglar alarms.

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables when a voice in the dark said,

'Jesus knows you're here.'

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze.

When he heard nothing more , after a bit, he shook his head and continued.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard

'Jesus is watching you.'

Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice.

Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.

Did you say that?' he hissed at the parrot.

the parrot confessed, then squawked, 'I'm just trying to warn you that he is watching you.'

The burglar relaxed.
'Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?'

replied the bird.

the burglar laughed. 'What kind of people would name a bird Moses?'

'The kind of people that would name a Rottweiler Jesus.'

Now I feel much better.  There is always someone worse off than you.
