Usually I don't have to sanitize the jokes my church members tell me.

This one I did. I guess the guy forgot it was me in email.

The coach called one of his 7-year-old baseball players aside and
asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What teamwork is?" The little boy nodded.

"Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose
together as a team?" The little boy nodded.

"So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a XXXXXX-head. Do you understand all that?" The little boy nodded.

The coach continued, "And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach 'dumb XXXhole', is it?" The little boy nodded.

"Good," said the coach. "Now go over there and explain that to your Mother."

I've coached hockey and soccer and I must say, the behavior of a few parents made it quite unsavory at times.

I'm glad Coach Bill, the greatest coach in the history of football, went over this with Corey when he first got to New England.

A man and a woman, who have never met before, but are both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a
transcontinental train. Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly... he in the upper bunk and she in the lower.

At 1:00 AM, the man leaned over and gently woke the woman saying, "Ma'am,I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet
to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold."

"I have a better idea," she replied. "Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married.

"Wow! That's a great idea!" he exclaimed.

"Good," she replied. "Get your own blanket, you worthless bum!"

After a moment of silence, he farted.
