The Talking Centipede

A single guy decided life would be more fun if he had a pet. So he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion, he finally bought a talking centipede, a 100-legged critter that came with its own home — a little white box.

The guy took his new pet home and found a good spot for the box. He named his new pet “10 Cents” and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to church with him.

“Would you like to go to church with me today? We will have a good time.”

But there was no answer from 10 Cents.

The guy waited a few minutes and then asked again, “How about going to church with me and receive blessings?”

But again, there was no answer from his new friend.

Now the guy is getting really worried. He waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation. He decided to invite the centipede one last time.

This time he put his face up against the centipede’s house and shouted, “Hey, in there! Would you like to go to church with me and learn about God?”


This time, a little voice came out of the box, “I heard you the first time! I’ve been putting on my shoes!”
