What A Conundrum! June 11, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.
Diamond D’s brothel began construction on an expansion of their building to accommodate their ever-growing business.
In response, the local Baptist Church started a campaign to block the business from expanding ~ with morning, afternoon, and evening prayer sessions at their church.
Work on Diamond D’s progressed right up until the week before the grand re-opening when lightning struck the whorehouse and burned it to the ground.
After the brothel burned down, members of the congregation grew rather smug, bragging about “the power of prayer.”
“Big Jugs” (Jill Diamond), the owner/madam, overheard them bragging and got an idea.
A week later, she sued the church, the preacher, and the entire congregation in a civil action for negligence.
In the complaint, Jugs contended that the church, preacher, and congregation “caused the demise of her building and her business ~ either through direct or indirect divine actions or means.”
She claimed entitlement to both damages and punitive damages, arguing that “the church and its congregation acted with malice aforethought to destroy her business and building.”
In its answer to the complaint, the church vehemently and vociferously denied any and all responsibility or connection to the building’s demise.
After reading through the plaintiff’s complaint and defendants’ answer, the astute judge gave a brief synopsis of the case at the hearing on defendant’s motion for summary judgment:
“I don’t know how I’m going to decide this motion, but it certainly presents an interesting conundrum. From my initial review of the pleadings, it appears that we have a whorehouse owner who staunchly believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that thinks it’s all bullshit.”
Aah . . . that’s better!
