Two boys and God
In a certain suburban neighborhood, there were two brothers, 8 and 10

the neighborhood, it turned out they had had a hand in it. Their
parents were at their wit's end trying to control them. Hearing about
a priest nearby who worked with delinquent boys, the mother suggested

The older boy asked, "What do you mean, BIIIIG trouble?"
His brother replied, "God is missing and they think we did it."
