Instead of identifying a donation for Sorokousty [Commemoration of the Dead] on an envelope, one parishioner wrote "Dlya Sorokkopuste" which translated from the Ukrainian means "For Forty Cabbages".

Maybe he was hungry and thinking of some delicious cabbage dish he would go home to eat???

Or maybe he was lamenting a fasting period coming up of forty days of eating nothing but cabbage!!! eek

Some years back, I remember listening to radio talk show host Barry Farber on WOR radio in NYC. He is Jewish, but raised in Kentucky. He tells of a theological debate which raged in a small Southern town. As you drove through the town, you first encountered a church with a sign which announced "There ain't no Hell"! As you went further down the road, the next church had a sign out front which read "the Hell there ain't!"

A new pastor was blessing the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door. When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, "Genesis 3:10." Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock." Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked."

One of the bulletin blunders I liked said, "Mrs. Edna Dalton is ill and recuperating at home. Her husband requests that no one come to see the big hog while she is ill."
