Welcome to Day 1427 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

The Judge – Humor Unplugged

Wisdom - the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek! Where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1427 of our Trek, and time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Humor Unplugged. Our Thursday podcast will provide a short and clean funny story to help you lighten up and live a rich and satisfying life. Something to cheer you and give 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 Judge

All was finally quiet at the Governor’s mansion after a hectic and stressful day. About 11:00 pm, Governor Smith told Jim, his chief of staff, that is was going to retire for the evening as he was exhausted and knew that the next day would be equally as busy.  Jim wished him a good night, and said that he had a few more things to do before heading home himself. Just as Jim was about to leave, shortly after midnight, the phone rang in the Governor’s office. Jim considered not answering it, but with everything that was going on recently, he figured that anyone calling at this hour it must be important.  As he answered, one of the top attorneys for the state, Don Donaldson, frantically blurted out, “I need to talk to the governor -- it’s an emergency!”   Jim explained that Governor Smith had gone to bed over an hour ago, and asked if it could wait until morning. Attorney Donaldson responded, “absolutely not.” After some more cajoling, Jim agreed to wake him up.

After a few minutes, Governor Smith, sounding somewhat tired, said, “Don, what’s so blame important that it can’t wait until morning?” Sounding very anxious, Don excitedly said, “Chief Justice Pierson just died, and I want to take his place. I thought I better get my name in.”

Governor Smith, not believing that he was woken from deep sleep to be asked such this ridiculous question, started to fume. After a few moments of silence, trying to clear his mind and gain some composure, the Governor finally replied, “Well, it’s okay with me if it’s okay with the funeral home.”

I hope that brought a smile to your face today. If it did pass your smile onto some else, we all could use a kind smile each day. Our Thursday thought is, “Take a deep breath and give yourself permission to step back from everything that is making you feel anxious.”


Here is our verse for today:

Psalm 127:2

It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.
