Kif qal sewwa l-President tal-Maltese Welfare (NSW), Lawrence Dimech “is-sodisfazzjoni ta’ min jaghmel xoghol voluntarju ma jigix mill-flus jew mis-successi persunali, izda mill-fatt li dawn qeghdin jikkontribwixxu biex titjieb il-kalita’ tal-hajja tan-nies.  Dan hu l-akbar valur tax-xoghol voluntarju”.

Joke of the week

A Irish man is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk,

when he comes upon a preacher baptizing people in the river.

He proceeds into the water, subsequently bumping into the preacher.

The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol,

whereupon, he asks the drunk, “Are you ready to find Jesus?”

The drunk shouts, “Yes, I am.”

So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water.

He pulls him back and asks, “Brother, have you found Jesus?”

The drunk replies, “No, I haven’t found Jesus!”

The preacher, shocked at the answer, dunks him again but for a little longer.

He again pulls him out of the  

water and asks, “Have you found Jesus, brother?”

The drunk answers, “No, I haven’t found Jesus!”

By this time, the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk again –

but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds,

and when he begins kicking his arms and legs about, he pulls him up.

The preacher again asks the drunk, “For the love of God, have you found Jesus?”

 

get ready for this)

 

The drunk staggers upright, wipes his eyes, coughs up a bit of water,

catches his breath, and says to the preacher,

“Are you sure this is where he fell in?”
