Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy

Welcome to Day 872 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

The Head Hog – Wisdom Unplugged

Thank you for joining us for our five days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 872 of our trek, and it’s time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Humor Unplugged. Our Thursday podcast provides a short and clean funny story to help you lighten and live a rich and satisfying life.

Something to cheer you and provide a bit a levity in your life. We are told in  Proverbs 15:30, “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.” We are also encouraged in Proverbs 17:22, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Consider this your vitamin supplement of cheer for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s funny which is titled…

The Head Hog

A church secretary, Margaret takes a call. The caller says, “This is Sam Smith from Tuscaloosa. Is the head hog at the trough there?”

Margaret says, “Please, Mr. Smith, do not refer to our pastor as the ‘head hog at the trough.’ That is very insulting.”

Sam says, “Oh, I’m very sorry. I meant nothing by that. It’s just a local phrase we use in the part of the country I come from. The real reason I called was to donate $50,000 to your building fund.”

Margaret says, “Hold on. I see the ‘Big Oinker’ coming through the door right now.”

As we conclude our story, let me leave you with a Thursday Thought, “I hope life isn’t a big joke because I don’t get it.”

King Solomon tells us in Ecclesiastes 8:15, “So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.”

Make it a day full of cheer.
