The Cripple


- Mum why am I a cripple?

- Well Lucy, God wanted you to be one.

- I don't like it!

- Oh well, we have to put up with what 

God wants sometimes.

- But why did he make me a cripple?

- So you could sit in your wheelchair,

and sell pens in the street, and have 

people laugh at you.

- That's not very nice!

- God's got a strange sense of humour 

at times.

- Why aren't you a cripple mum!

- Because I'm a robot Lucy! See I can

unscrew my head...

88 fingers

God is a real practical joker. He likes to put banana peels in front of senior citizens buildings, or switch around street signs.

Are you sure that's not the devil 88? Although changing the street signs might be a good idea, I might get my destination. Thanks for the comment!
