| Yes, The Goddess Truly Does Have A Sense Of Humor. I'm Always... ||Oct 3rd. at 12:49:37 pm UTC|
|Heather (Austin, Texas US) ||Age: 36 |
Yes, the Goddess truly does have a sense of humor. I'm always on a tight budget, and sometimes the simple things can turn so mundane due to lack of funds.
Sitting in the drive through at Taco Bell not long ago, I tried to make the best use of limited lunch money. I casually sent out a small plea...."Just once, couldn't something a little more interesting than a bean burrito find it's way into that bag?".
You guessed it...when I returned to work and opened the bag, I was greeted by "Monster Nachos" and other assorted goodies which I surely couldn't afford!
(Nothing blasphemous meant by this story. It just serves to remind me that the Goddess is in all...and yes, She does have a sense of humor. Shouldn't we?)

Reading these was terrific fun and response number #815 reminded me of two related events that occured to me many years ago.
When I was a Sophmore in college I was visiting the Bay Area and took part in a support group. At the first meeting we were asked to introduce ourselves and tell everyone something about ourselves. I covered the usual stuff and at the end decided to come out of the broom closet. "And I am a practicing Witch" just then the power went out, as near as I could tell, on the whole campus. The entire room went silent. Then a small voice came out of the darkness, "this isn't funny" it quavered. The entire room broke into laughter and the power came back on.
About a year later I started a Pagan Study group on my campus.At the first meeting I started the introductions (being the facilitator). Once again I came to those (apparently) mystic words, "I am a practicing Witch". This time an entire section of the ceiling tiles fell to the floor (fortunately not on anyone). This time however, I was ready and quickly retorted, "ignore that". Which also resulted in general laughter.

How do you know if your a redneck pagan?
Your Alter is a tranny and your athame is a rusty screwdriver!

Here's some new jokes for you.
Q: How do you save a pagan from drowning?
A: Make her take off all her jewelry!
(Written by my friend and I at a Denny's in Salt Lake City at 4:30 am)

Enjoy and share!

When asked about my costume for the upcoming Brownie Hallowe'en party, my immediate response was "I'm always a witch."
| I Have A Friend Who Still Says She's Christian, Although She's Doubting... ||Oct 4th. at 2:03:53 am UTC|
|Gryphontamer (Corona, California US) ||Age: 29 - Email |
I have a friend who still says she's Christian, although she's doubting her faith pretty badly since I started studying paganism.
I had to shock her the other day when I told her, "Dana, you were the *first exposure I had* to paganism!"
You see, when we met, she played me Loreena McKennitt's song "All Souls' Night" and said "wouldn't this be perfect for antler-dancing at the beach around a bonfire?" She's also been the one who introduced me to the Green Man among other Pagan symbols and gods.
She was quite shocked when I told her that Cernunnos, the Horned God, doesn't have goat's horns but a rack of stag's antlers.
Needless to say, she's investigating Paganism now!

Oh, I wish I had a story as exciting as thunder, power outtages or a collapsing ceiling but I'm afraid my life is far too mundane. :)
I've been an ecclectic Wiccan for 6 years and 2 years ago I started dating a pagan man. This is actually his joke... one of the first of many really BAD jokes he's told me... but I'm sure he won't mind my printing it here:
Q: How do you tell if you're playing Pagan Packman?
A: Instead of going "wocka wocka wocka" it goes "wicca wicca wicca"
| I Recently Came Across The Ecauldron, And Was In Stitches! The Circle... ||Oct 4th. at 11:05:27 am UTC|
|Illianna Quicksilver (Greenville, North Carolina US) ||Age: 26 - Email |
I recently came across the ecauldron, and was in stitches! The circle manners was the best. Never EVER set the witch on fire. Never invoke anything bigger than your head, humor is a big part of my life, and if you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at? The funniest thing that has ever happened to me was an irritating ex, who decided to take a job where my husband works. Every time I visited my hubby, there he was hugging and kissing me. Well, my friend gave me a gorgeous pentacle as a gift, and I haven't taken it off since. There was the ex and here comes the obnoxious hug, and he damned near fell down trying to get away from "the sign of the devil". I laughed so hard I cried. This is the same man who (when I was living with him) shook me awake at two in the morning waving my athame around demanding to know "just what do you do with this?" To which I promptly responded "I trim my toenails with it, what do you think I use it for?????!!!!" "Oh OK, I thought it was soem of that magic stuff you have...." LOL

|MachaCrow (Charles Town, West Virginia US) ||Age: 31 - Email |
Well, I think mine is amusing more than funny...
Recently while attending a rather eclectic circle we were critiqued by the local wildlife.
It was a silly night all around. Our Harvest Lord sporting a crown of silk grape leaves whilst the real thing was underfoot.... I remember thinking how silly, when he complains of a sharp pain.
The squirrels had decided to play a game, and he was getting pelted by acorns. I can only assume they were trying to make the bullseye of the wreath on his head.
It's been a couple of weeks now, but it's still funny to me.
| True Story... My Wife And I Were Married By Wiccan Ceremony In... ||Oct 4th. at 4:08:46 pm UTC|
|Ned (Greywolf) Farnsworth (Lafayette, Indiana US) ||Age: 28 - Email |
My wife and I were married by Wiccan ceremony in a beautiful old historic house. We gathered everyone in the main room of the house. Our friends called the quarters. The priest and priestess lit a cauldron of incense and then begain the ritual with upmost seriousness...
... about 30 seconds later the incense reached the smoke detector and set off the fire alarm. In short order one of the people calling quarters was standing on a chair with *the* broom trying to fan the smoke away while the priest rushed the still burning cauldron outside. He was mortified... I still tease him about it.

I haven't had enough experience to have a funny story of my own so I will share one that many of you may have heard, but if you haven't I think it is just great. Sorry, I don't know the author.
A LETTER FROM SCHOOL
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Thomas,
I write this letter in concern of your daughter, Aradia Moon. Please don't take this the wrong way, however, although she is a straight A student and a very bright child, she has some strange habits that I feel we should address.
Every morning before class, she insists on walking around the classroom with her pencil held in the air. She says she is "drawing down the moon." I told her Art Class is in an hour and to please refrain from drawing until then. And speaking of Art Class, whenever she draws a night sky, she insists on drawing little circles around all the stars and people dancing on the ground. And that brings up dancing, I had to stop her twice for taking off her clothes during a game of Ring Around the Rosey!
By the way, what does the term "skyclad" mean?
Aradia has no problem with making friends. I always find her sitting outside during recess with her friends sitting around her in a circle. She likes to share her juice and cookies. It is nice how she wants no one to ever thirst or hunger. However, when I walked over to see what they were doing, she jumped up and told me to stop, pulled out a little plastic knife and started waving it in front of me. I thought this was a bit dangerous, so I took her to the Principal's Office. She explained to the Principal that she was "opening the Circle" to let me in. She also said that her Mommy and Daddy always told her not to play or run with an "athame" in her hand, that she could put someone's eye out. I don't know what an "athame" is, but I am glad that she keeps it at home.
As for stories, your daughter tends to make up some whoppers. Just yesterday while I was talking sternly to Tommy Johnson and shaking my finger at him, he started screaming and ran from the room. When I finally caught him, he told me that Aradia told him and the rest of the class that the last time I shook my finger at someone, they caught the chicken pox. I explained to him that the Sally Jones incident was just a coincidence, and that things like that don't really happen.
One of the strangest things that happened was when I asked the children to bring in Halloween decorations for the classroom. Aradia brought in salt, incense and her family album. I see she has quite a sense of humor. One of Aradia's worst habits is that she is very argumentative. We were discussing what the Golden Rule was (Do Unto others as you would have them Do Unto You), she firmly disagreed with me and stated it was "Do As you Will, but Harm None" and she will not stop saying "So Mote It Be" after she reads aloud in class. I try correct her on these matters and she got very angry. She pointed her finger at me and mumbled something under her breath.
In closing, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, I would like to set up a parent/teacher conference with you sometime next week to discuss these matters. I would like to see you sooner, but I have developed an irritating rash that I am quite worried about.
With Deep Concerns,
P.S. Blessed Be. I understand that this is a greeting or closing from your country that your daughter informs me is polite and correct.

I KNOW these are terrible...
If your cauldron doubles as your spitoon... You MIGHT be a redneck pagan.
If you pass around Ho Ho's and Schlitz for cakes and ale, you Might be a redneck pagan.
