  • A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of Christmas shopping. It was found by an honest little boy and returned to her. Looking in her purse, she commented, "Hmmm.... That's funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills."
    The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for a reward."

As we were putting out cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve, I accidentally dropped one. "No problem," I said, picking it up and dusting it off before placing it back on the plate.

"You can’t do that," argued my four-year-old.

"Don’t worry. Santa will never know."

He shot me a look. "So he knows if I’ve been bad or good, but he doesn’t know the cookie fell on the floor?"

Wife: I have a bag full of used clothes that I would like to donate.
Husband: Why not just throw them in the trash? That would be much easier.
W: But there are poor starving people who could really use  these clothes.
H: Honey, anyone who fits into your clothes is not starving.
