Chuckles of the Day – The Amish Elevator, 11 People On A Rope

by Sherry Riter in Chuckle

I had several wonderful things happen to me which I want to share…but not in this post. Instead, I want to share a couple more fast funny stories to lighten your day.

Laughing feels so good…

Amish Elevator

A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

The boy asked, ‘What is this Father?’

The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, ‘Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don’t know what it is.’

While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, an overweight, older lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed, and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

They continued to watch until it reached the last number, and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order.

Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.

The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son…..

‘Go get your Mother.’


11 People On A Rope

Eleven people were hanging on a rope
Under a helicopter.
10 men and 1 woman.
The rope was not strong enough to carry them all
So they decided that one had to leave,
Because otherwise they were all going to fall.

They weren’t able to choose that person,
Until the woman gave a very touching speech.

She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope,
Because, as a woman,
She was used to giving up everything
For her husband and kids or for men in general,
And was used to always making sacrifices
With little in return.

As soon as she finished her speech,
All the men started clapping…

Men, you know that was funny. Go ahead and laugh.

Too funny! Actually both stories gave me a chuckle – but I especially liked the story about the "11 People On A Rope." I laughed out loud when I came to the part about all the men clapping!
