Pranks At Church

Sometimes pranks at church can be funny.

Like one time in my old ward, I started messing around with my Ward Clerk and one week I paid my month’s tithing in pennies.

So then each week, when he was going around counting people during sacrament meeting, when he got to me, he would start counting audibly and was like "eighty, eighty one, eighty two, (points at me) eighty two and A HALF..."

So then one week I changed the program so instead of saying he was the ward clerk, it said he was the ward jerk.

So then one week he transferred my records to some ward in Idaho.

So the next week I put a whoopee cushion on his chair in Elder’s Quorum.

But then the next week we found out he had been stealing the ward’s tithing money and he was probably going to get excommunicated.

I didn’t quite get that last one, but it just goes to show that sometimes pranks at church can go too far.

Being a ward clerk is a thankless job. I think I was called to that position only to keep me from having to interact with people.

Gatsby said...

Well I think that there is your thanks.

I hate one-uppers.

This really is my favorite blog ever.

And I would have gotten away with it, too, if wasn't for you meddling kids.

once my friend made a batch of beer bread, and then gave it to the deacon's quorum advisor, telling him it was home made for the sacrament...

I like to put the sacrament tray really close to the person next to me when it comes around. I will put it up to their chest and almost to their chin so that when they reach for the bread or water, they look like a raptor. It gives me enjoyment, I suggest you try it and get back to me. I guarantee that you will laugh. You can't smile or anything when you do it. Just act like you are passing it normal. Its a good time.

HA HA HA!

That is hilarious!

Austin said...

Thank you, sir. Truly, for everything, thank you.

Your pranks obviously led him to steal the money. For penance you must recite 20 Hail Emma's.

Hey, I know this story from SWAB. You apparently know my sister. The cyber world is so small.

Gatsby said...

Yep, I did make the clerk counting me as a half joke on SWAB. I admit sometimes I use the same jokes at multiple times.

Though I don't know which one your sister is, I do know a lot of ladies.

So welcome.

Maybe he was using the money to buy everyone in the ward ice-cream sandwiches and when it was your turn he would give you the chocolate cookie with a paper in the middle that says "Here is our lost friendship."

(your blog makes me happy)

Glad you paid him in penny's. At least you were a PITA to him LOL

I live in Way to Serious Ward. I'll have to up my search for someone like me.

Excommunicated? Looks like you won this prank war. You'll probably on the high council for his hearing too.
