Today's Laugh.............................Ha Ha Ha !!!

The Nun And Warm Milk 

  In a convent in Ireland, the 98-year-old Mother Superior lay 


  The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her last 

  journey comfortable.

  They tried giving her warm milk to drink but she refused it.

   One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen. 

   Then, remembering a bottle of Irish Whiskey that had been 

   received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened it 

   and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.

  Back at Mother Superior's bed, they held the glass to her lips. 

  The frail nun drank a little, then a little more and before 

  they knew it, she had finished the whole glass down to the last 


   As her eyes brightened, the nuns thought it would be a 

   good opportunity to have one last talk with their spiritual leader.


  "Mother," the nuns asked earnestly, "Please give us 

  some of your wisdom before you leave us."

   She raised herself up in bed on one elbow,

   looked at them and said:
