    mama's bible

    Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and
    lawyers and prospered.

    Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed
    the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who lived far away in
    another city.

    The first said, "I had a big house built for Mama."

    The second said, " I had a hundred thousand dollar theater built in the

    The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."

    The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know
    she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this preacher
    who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took twenty
    preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a
    year for twenty years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama just has to
    name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it." The other
    brothers were impressed.

    After the holidays Mom sent out her Thank You notes. She wrote:

    "Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have
    to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

    "Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound, it could hold
    50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing and I'm
    nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same.

    "Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home, I have my groceries delivered,
    so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks.

    "Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a
    little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you."
