The National Catholic Review

To mark this week's release of the paperback edition of Between Heaven and Mirth, I was asked by HarperOneVideo to film "Forty Days of Funny," a series of 40 jokes over the space of 40 days, to remind readers (and viewers) that laughter is a gift from God, humor is part of a healthy spiritual life and joy is, as Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, the most infallible sign of the Holy Spirit. Here's Day 1 (which was uploaded yesterday).  Enjoy!

Sorry, Dave.  Cocktails in your room are OK.  The mixer is out, considering the well-known multiple minds of God on consuming alcohol.

That's one of the real oldies... but nice to hear the agnostics and atheists included. Who hosts the first cocktail party and mixer?
