Pray to God
As a little boy i wanted $50 very badly and asked my mother to give it to me. My mother told me to pray to God for it.
I prayed and prayed for two weeks, but nothing turned up. Then i decided to write God a letter requesting the $50. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God, they opened it up and decided to send it to the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister was so impressed, touched and amused that he instructed his secretary to send me a check for $5. He thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
I was delighted with the $5 and sat down to write a thank you letter to God which ran as follows:
Dear God: Thank you very much for sending me the money. I noticed that you had to send it through Ottawa. As usual those Mail Men deducted $45.
