Jesus biscuits

A woman came to the door the other day with a food hamper in her hand. She told me it was mine and she smiled as she handed it to me. Confused, I waited for her to tell me where I'd won it, and why, but she didn't, she just smiled as I looked from hamper to her, from her back to hamper. "It's your gift," she told me, "from Jesus."

I made polite noise, declined the hamper and she left. But if Jesus had put better biscuits in the hamper, I might have been converted.

When you say biscuits, do you mean communion wafers?

I bet if there were biscuits in the hamper they'd be "nice".

If Jesus were that good he wouldn't need to give free biscuits. Would he?

Steve: No, they were sub-standard wafers, without even chocolate on them!

Kaz: You're spot on. And the tin of sweetcorn was a tiny one too.

David: Wonderful, truly brilliant.

Not sure I'd ever decline biscuits whoever sent them.
Wonder if Jesus can send twiglets?

How funny/weird!

Someone came to my door the other week and said "Hi, I just wondered if you might be interested in our magazines?" I love magazines so I was like, "yay, magazines!"

And I looked and it was The Watchtower. Gah.
