Go Forth And Multiply

A very Christian woman marries a very Christian man. Following the words of the Bible, “Be fruitful and multiply,” they have many children. 16 over the course of 18 years, to be exact.

A few years later, the husband dies suddenly of a heart attack. The lady remarries another man, and they have 17 children over the course of 22 years. The woman’s second husband dies of old age.

The woman herself dies a few years later.

At her funeral, her sister remarks, “Well, at least they’re finally together.”

“Who? She and her husband’s?” asks the minister.

“No,” says the sister. “Her legs.”

An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: ”UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?”

‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: “I am because we are”
