1. Norman Vincent Peale was invited to speak at the National Association of Undertakers. When he arrived he was asked to wear a carnation on his lapel. The woman who was chosen to pin the carnation to his lapel was short in stature, and she stuck the pin into her finger a couple of times and into him a couple of times. She finally sighed and said, “As an undertaker, you know I could do this more easily if you were lying down.”

2. A minister volunteered to give lectures at a prison. After a few weeks, the prisoners said, “Warden, we protest these lectures; they were not part of our sentences.”
