A church has a rat problem

The church doesn’t want to kill the rats so they trap them and release them far away, but the next day they are back.

Next they try ask them politely to leave, still they won’t budge.

Finally the priest has one last idea, he baptized all the rats.

Now they only come at Christmas and Easter.

man walked into a bar. He sat down and asked the bar tender “If I impress you, can I have a free drink?”. The bar tender said sure, so the man reached in his pocket and pulled out a tiny piano. He then pulled out a small rat and set it by the piano. It crawled on to the bench and began playing

music. The bar tender was amazed, so he gave the man a beer. Next, the man said “If I impress you even more, can I have free drinks for life?”. The bar tender didn’t think it was possible, so he agreed. The man pulled a frog out of his pocket, and it began to sing by the piano. The bar tender smiled and told the man that he was impressed. A man in a suit with a cane walked into the bar, saw the small animals, and offered to buy them for $2 million. The owner said no, but he offered to sell the frog for $500k. The rich man agreed, took the frog, and left. The bar tender couldn’t believe the owner just did that and said “Why did you just sell the frog?! There is no singing now!”. The owner laughed and said “Don’t worry; the rat is a ventriloquist!”.

Two professors of economics were walking down a road when they saw a dead rat.

The older one said – “If you eat this, I’ll pay you ₹10,000”. The younger one makes a quick cost-benefit analysis and finally eats the rat.

The younger professor experiences a bad after-taste and wants the older professor to experience the same. When he sees another dead rat on the road, he dares the professor to eat it in exchange for the old ₹10,000. The senior professor, eager to recover his reckless bet, eats it.

After a few minutes of walking silently, the younger professor finally says – “Looks like we’ve been eating dead rats for free.”

The older professor remarks, “But don’t forget we just added ₹ 20,000 to the GDP!”

RATS!

Levado's Journal

I heard a voice of doubt crimping in, enticing me, it was luring me, it desired me to give in and throw-in the towel, “Give up” it whispered and my heard could not conclude on anything. I tried to scream as I was suffocating from the hefty burden laid on my chest by the worries of this world, I tried to put up a fight and I felt my strength slipping away. I asked repeatedly, why does it have to be me? Questions of a man overwhelmed by unfavourable circumstances. At times I was confused, sometimes I had trivial moments of clarity and I constantly tried to conquer my fears and challenges. I needed to be strong for my family, friends and most of all myself, but sometimes I was keeping up appearances and I often wondered how many other people out there were doing the same while knowing deep…
