Joke: A Knock at The Door

Wednesday morning the weather was too bad to play golf.
I was bored with nothing to do.
Suddenly there was a knock on the door.
I opened it to find a young, well dressed man standing there who said:
“Hello sir, I'm a Jehovah's Witness.”
So I said, "Come in and sit down.”
I offered him a fresh cup of coffee and asked,
"What do you want to talk about?”
He said, "Beats the shit out of me. Never got this far before.."

--Got this today and it made me smile.

3. I had one come by last summer

I took him out to our picnic table, shook his hand and said "I am an atheist. I have a lot of time and I've been looking for someone to talk to about this."

I kept for about 30 minutes before he ran off. Two hours later I went back outside and he was still sitting behind the wheel of his car, head bent down holding his bible. I assume he was praying for my soul.

Thought about going over to invite him back but thought better of it.

4. A story from a friend...

...who had a friend back in the 80's who was a large women and who was deep, deep into SCA and Paganism. She liked to dress in "full regalia" as she put it.

One day when the women was in her full regalia and dressed to the nines, two very slim, very young "men" in white shirts-and-ties rang her door bell.

The young men asked if she was willing to discuss the good news of of the bible, to which the women replied with a great grin and "Oh yes, you will do!"

However, before the young men could respond the women turned around and yelled back into her house with an extremely loud Sergeant-Major's voice, "Hon...Nee! The...Sac..Cra...Fices...Are...Here!!"

Only to find that when she turned back to invite the young men in, there wasn't anybody on her door step.

She later lamented scaring them off, since no nice young men in ties ever knocked on her door again.

6. Their magic underwear informs them of who's on the naughty list

It's the same as what Santa wears on Christmas -- a gift from the Angel Moroni, no doubt.

The flying reindeer? That was all Odin. Asgardians are really into magic livestock, don't-cha-know.

7. Reminds me of an experience I had years ago

At least the reaction of the missionaries reminds me. I was a grad student, and while walking to class, I had two typical Mormon missionaries begin their sales pitch with me. When they found out that I was a grad student in religion, they sped off. I didn't even get a chance to tell them I am an atheist!

8. Once when my little brother was about eight...

A couple young guys knocked at our front door while we were lounging around watching TV. My dad told him not to answer it, but he did anyway. He yelled to us that some “missionaries “ were at the door, and my dad said “Well, invite them in, I’d like to have them explain their position”. I remember my mother hitting him with her newspaper....

9. True story: I was ripping the livingroom carpet up and rolling it and trying to drag it out the fron

front door by myself. They came up and asked if I knew Jesus, and I said, no, but would you grab that end if the carpet?

They ran like hell!!!!!

And they never came back!
