The Ironic Blessing (Humor)

08 Aug


“An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay
It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn’t it ironic … don’t you think”  *

The young associate pastor was asked to give the Aaronic Blessing to the congregation but he was not familiar with this terminology. Not wanting to appear at a lack of understanding, he grabbed his guitar and delivered the Ironic Blessing instead…

    I’m glad you like this one, Slinger. It was hatched on the tennis court. My friend told me about a preacher who wasn’t aware of the Aaronic Blessing and I totally misunderstood what he said due to his Texas accent. I thought he said erronic to which I was about to correct him and suggest that the correct word was errant. Then he explained that he had said Aaronic. I found it ironic that I was in error in trying to correct his presumed error. And voila, the Ironic Blessing bit was hatched!
