    Last weekend, on a whim, i decided to paint the front of my house. (Chalkboard white) However when i was about half way through it suddenly dawned on me that i was going to run out of paint. Chess however has made me a resourceful fellow and i rather cleverly diluted the remaining paint with thinner, found in the shed. The paint stretched perfectly and i went to bed Sunday night contented and plump on cherry wine.
    That night however it rained: it rained hard. The next morning when i stepped outside to admire my work i was aghast to discover that the diluted paint had completely washed away. Despite my atheistic leanings, i cried out in despair, "Lord, what shall I do?"

    An unexpected voice came back from the heavens, "Repaint, and thin no more!"

    Which website did you copy and paste that joke?
    Not a bad one by the way.

    Hey, no copy and paste involved. (Though perhaps a smidgen of creative adaption).

    The joke evolved dude,.....just like Hinds.

    Justice! if you were a christian the lord would have sent an angel to stretch its wings over your house protecting it from the rain. Did you see any rain falling on the Kingdom Hall, No? Well then!

    Here is one from a website

    Randy, the painter, often thinned his paint to make it go further. The Baptist Church decided to restore its biggest building. Randy put in a low bid and got the job. He bought the paint, and, yes, thinned it with turpentine. Well, Randy was painting away, the job nearly completed, when suddenly there was a clap of thunder. The sky opened, and the rain poured down. It washed the thinned paint off the church. Randy fell from the scaffold, landing among the gravestones. He was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty. Randy raised his voice to the heavens, crying, "Oh, God, forgive me; what should I do?" And from above, a mighty voice roared: “Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!"

    Does not look like there are too many creative additions on your part 🙂

    The thread title says "Good works not rewarded" (bold mine).

    There's your problem, this wasn't a "good" work, it was a lazy (edit: not really lazy, just cheap) one. And thin. Very thin. 🙂

    Jokes are not condoms old chap. They can be reused.

    I merely improved the packaging.

    I would say a complete reversal from a human being back to a pilchard.

    Surely that occurs every time you make a forum post, which invariably leads to you being devoured by bigger fish?

    What is the real point of this thread?
    How is it related to the overall topic of Spirituality ?

    You came over to my thread to complain about spamming.
    The way I see it, meaningful spamming here is more beneficial than some of the joking going on here to the end of - I can't figure out yet.

    So what does your non-spam subject matter hope to dialogue here anyway?
