Had a colleague send me the below, and I thought I'd share.
A little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened. Then, he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00. When the postal authorities received the letter to "God, USA," they decided to send it to the President. The President was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00 bill. The President thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a thank you note to God, which read:
Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that
for some reason you sent it through Washington DC...And those jerks took $95.00 in taxes.
