Why Cletus O'Toole Religiously Attends Church

Most folks attend church to worship and praise the Lord as a general rule, But this is not necessarily the case for God-fearing Deacon Cletus O'Toole. He religiously goes to church every Sunday to take a nap (such is his nerve!), And partake of potluck suppers and to quaff the coffee and donuts they serve!

Thank you Tom for stopping by. You are right about the droning! Abe Lincoln one time commented that he would like to see preachers in the pulpit swinging their arms in the air and yelling like they were swatting a swarm of bees! Now that would sure keep one awake! Doing OK here and hope you are keeping well too. Bob

Poor Cletus! It sounds like he's in the wrong line of work if he falls asleep in church. Enjoyed your witty clerihew, Bob! Hugs, Carolyn (Small package is on the way to you.)

Cletus is nobody's fool. He certainly knows why 'Church is cool!' Thanks for the chuckle, Bob. Brotherhood and Love, Gershon

Old Clete eschews food for the soul and "chewses" to "chew" on the goodies! Thanks Gershon. Brotherhood and Love, indeed - Bob
