Sarah, the church gossip and self-appointed arbiter
of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into
other people's business. Several members were
unappreciative of her activities, but feared her enough
to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however,
when she accused George, a new member of being an
alcoholic after she saw his pickup parked in front of
the town's only bar one afternoon. She commented to
George and others that everyone seeing it there would
know what he was doing. George, a man of few words,
stared at her for a moment and just walked away. He
didn't explain, defend or deny--he said nothing. Later
that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front
of Sarah's house and left it there all night.

Hmm, that explains your one-liners in MD that confuse everyone.

A father put his three year old daughter to bed, told her a story
and listened to her prayers which she ended by saying
"God bless Mommy,
God bless daddy,
God bless grandma
and good-bye grandpa."
The father asked, "Why did you say good-bye grandpa?"
The little girl said, "I don't know daddy, it just seemed like the
thing to do."
The next day grandpa died.
The father thought it was a strange coincidence.. A few months
later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers,
which went like this:
"God bless Mommy,
God Bless daddy
and good-bye grandma."
The next day the grandmother died.
Oh my gosh, thought the father, this kid is in contact with the
other side. Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed
the dad heard her say
"God bless Mommy
and good-bye daddy."
He practically went into shock. He couldn't sleep all night and
got up very early in the morning to go to his office.
He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch sent in and watched the
clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay.
He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of
the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and
jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived, he breathed a sigh
of relief and went home.
When he got home his wife said "I've never seen you work so late,
what's the matter?"
He said "I don't want to talk about it, I've just spent the worst day
of my life."
She said "You think you had a bad day, you'll never believe what
happened to me. This morning the mailman dropped dead on our porch."

A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him,
"Father, I have a problem. I have two female parrots,
but they only know how to say one thing."
"What do they say?" the priest inquired.
They say, "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some
fun?"
"That's obscene!" the priest exclaimed, then he
thought for a moment. "You know," he said, "I may have
a solution to your problem. I have two male talking
parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the
Bible. Bring your two parrots over to my house, and
we'll put them in the cage with Francis and Job. My
parrots can teach your parrots to praise and worship,
and your parrots are sure to stop saying that phrase
in no time."
"Thank you," the woman responded, "this may very well
be the solution."
The next day, she brought her female parrots to the
priest's house. As he ushered her in, she saw that his
two male parrots were inside their cage holding rosary
beads and praying.
Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in
with them.
After a few minutes, the female parrots cried out in
unison: "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some
fun?"
There was stunned silence. Shocked, one male parrot
looked over at the other male parrot and exclaimed,
"Put the beads away, Frank. Our prayers have been answered.
