LAUGHTER LINE: A country church is struck by lightning one night and the roof goes up in flames. The insurance company refuses to pay out, pointing out that there is a specific clause for "Acts of God", which includes lightning. So, the vicar goes around every household in the village, asking for donations to help rebuild the church. One bright spark said, "I'm sorry, Reverend, but I just can't give money to help somebody who sets His own house alight!"
