Weekly Poop 2/7/18

Roost #44 Poop
  • From the PrezWhat a Super Bowl! One of the best ever. Four ex-Ravens on the Eagles. Now winter really sets in. See you at the meeting Thursday at OC 360 at 7:30!
    Remember that we collect plastic grocery bags at every Roost meeting. These bags are used by Diakonia (Local Food Bank & Homeless Shelter) to distribute food contributions to the needy. My white Ford pickup truck is parked in front of OC 360 at every Roost meeting. Simply put your plastic bags (tied up tightly) in the bed of the truck. This is a great way to recycle plastic bags for a good cause.

Funny Poop
  • A man is in his front yard attempting to fly a kite with his son. However, every time the kite gets up in the air, it comes crashing back down. This goes on for a while, when his wife stickes her head out he front door and yells “You need more tail”. The man turns to his son and says, “Son, I’ll never understand your mother. Yesterday, I told her I needed more tail, and she told me to go fly a kite!”
  • Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, "Father, my dog is dead. Could ya' be saying' a mass for the poor creature?"
    Father Patrick replied, "I'm afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there's no tellin' what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the creature."
    Muldoon said, "I'll go right away Father. Do ya' think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?"
    Father Patrick exclaimed, "Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn't ya tell me the dog was Catholic?
