Humour: EVERYONE A GEM


Most people think of humour as something that exists for the sake of entertainment, or for adding spice to social occasions.
But humour is an aspect of the human mind, and as such, is almost certainly part of a system for information processing. So what sort of information is being processed when we laugh at something funny?
Most humour follows a pattern like this:
•    First we think that something is true, based on clues given to us,
•    But then we are presented with further evidence, which shows that we were wrong,
•    In fact we were so wrong, that there was something wrong with the thought processes that lead to the initial conclusion.
And at the end of this process, we feel pleasure. 


Heavenly Voice Mail
Most of us have now learned to live with voice mail as a necessary part of our lives. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if God decided to install voice mail? Imagine praying and hearing the following:
Thank you for calling heaven.
For English press 1
For Spanish press 2
For all other languages, press 3
Or you might hear this:
Please select one of the following options:
Press 1 for request
Press 2 for thanksgiving
Press 3 for complaints
Press 4 for all others
Or if heaven is busy you might hear this:
I am sorry, all our Angels and Saints are busy helping other sinners right now. However, your prayer is important to us and we will answer it in the order it was received. Please stay on the line.
Alternatively you may be directed to other numbers like this:
If you would like to speak to:
God, press 1
Jesus, press 2
Holy spirit, press 3
If it is the heavenly weekend you will hear this:
The office is now closed for the weekend to observe a religious holiday.
If you are calling after hours and need emergency assistance, please contact your local pastor.
Thank you and have a heavenly day.
