“I’m not a fatalist; even if I were, what could I do about it?”
—EMO PHILIPS, American comedian
A Sunday school teacher was worried that her preschool-age students might be a little bit confused about what had happened to Jesus after he died. So she asked her class, “Where is Jesus today?” A little boy raised his hand and said, “In heaven!” A little girl volunteered, “He’s in my heart.” Then Timmy, a boy in the back of the room, waved his hand eagerly and blurted out, “I know! I know! He’s in our bathroom!” The teacher was completely at a loss for words, but finally she asked Timmy how he knew this.
“Well,” Timmy replied, “every morning my father gets up, bangs on the bathroom door, and yells, ‘Jesus, are you still in there?!’”
