Joke: How to Stop Gossip

Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose into other people’s business.

Several members did not approve of her extracurricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused Frank, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old blue pickup parked in front of the town’s one and only bar all afternoon.

She emphatically told Frank (and several others) that everyone seeing it there, would know what he was doing!

Frank, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away.

He didn’t explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.

Later that evening, Frank quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred’s house.

Walked home … and left it there all night.  (You gotta love Frank)

Good Day!

  1. Yes, you do. I love your SOH. The final nail in the coffin would be a condom wrapper left on the sidewalk in front.
