Act Of God
The new economy minister’s wife had a baby. The economy minister appealed to the parliament for a salary increase to cover the addition to the family.The parliament agreed that it was only fair, and confirmed it.
Nine months later the next kid arrived, the economy minister appealed again and the parliament confirmed again. Five years and five children later, the parliament was a bit upset over the increasing expense. This turned into a rather loud meeting one night with the minister. Finally, the economy minister stood and yelled out,”Having children is an act of God!!”
An older man in the back stood and yelled back to the minister, “Rain and snow are acts of God, too, and we wear rubbers for them.”
