Please read two new story and vote.

1. Case in the church.

The Orthodox bishop was pontificating in his church sometimes using obsolete words and keeping in mind that brevity is the soul of wit.

Among those present was a strange and usually reticent parishioner, who often brought largess to the altar.

To the astonishment of those present he suddenly hindered the divine service and launched a tirade that God didn't exist.

Displaying decorum and remembering that to err is human and to forgive divine, the adroit bishop gingerly sidestepped the question.

2. A little prankster.

Erick is the adroit kid and he has always had problems with decorum.

So and today he erred by making fool of his own father — early in the morning, while his father was making bed, Erick took rancid obsolete canned sprats and put them all to the father's dish.

But largess is not always being caused by good intentions — Erick's father understood this plain truth too late, after he ate the whole dish in hurry and stuck in the restroom for a couple of hours.

Then Erick's father, known for his brevity and commonly being reticent, flared up and pontificated a tirade against the little prankster.

That silly joke hindered Erick's father to be in time at his workplace and his boss was angry about it, but that is another story.
