Peace And Happiness at Easter

Easter is the oldest and the most important Christian Festival, the celebration of the death and coming to life again of Jesus Christ. For Christians, the dawn of Easter Sunday with its message of new life is the high point of the Christian year. For kids Easter is probably the time for holidays, festivals and a time for giving chocolate Easter eggs. But Easter means much more….

Easter is the story of Jesus’  last days in Jerusalem before his death.The Easter story includes Maundy Thursday (the Last supper leading to the Eucharist), Good Friday (the day on which Jesus was crucified) and Easter Day (the day on which Jesus came back to life).  It is a sad story because Jesus was killed. But the story has a very happy ending, because Jesus came back to life and visited his friends and followers once more. He did not die at all, but went back up to Heaven to be with God, his father.

Jesus saves ;)

Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument about who was better on his computer.

They had been going at it for days, and God was tired of hearing all of the arguments. Finally God said, “Cool it. I am going to set up a test that will run two hours and I will judge who does the better job.”

So down Satan and Jesus sat at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. They did spreadsheets. They wrote reports. They sent faxes. They sent e-mails. They sent out e-mails with attachments. They downloaded. They did some genealogy reports. They made cards. They did every known job.

But ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, the rain poured and, of course, the electricity went off. Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld. Jesus just sighed. The electricity finally flickered back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming “It’s gone! It’s all gone! I lost everything when the power went out!”

Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours. Satan observed this and became irritated.

“Wait! He cheated, how did he do it?”, said Satan.
God shrugged and said, “Jesus saves”.

GRAFFITI

Underneath the famous ecological slogan “SAVE TREES” someone added “Eat beaver”. In the library of an American university, the librarian left a notice saying “Back in a minute”. Someone then scribbled the signature “Godot”. Graffiti, the art of writing on the walls, is believed to be as old as the human race. It is a way of commenting on current social and political events, and of mocking advertising slogans. It can also be a way of expressing oneself for people who have no chance or no courage to express their views in public. Graffiti writers use all sorts of walls available but probably the most popular are public lavatory walls, maybe because of the privacy they guarantee. Most graffiti are witty and humorous and provide excellent free entertainment.

How do you like these?

YOU’RE NEVER ALONE WITH SCHIZOPHRENIA.

KEEP BRITAIN TIDY – Kill a tourist  (added to the environment protection slogan).

JESUS SAVES – “Today he is the only one who can afford to”  (comment on popular religious advertisement).

J0in the ARMY – “meet interesting people and  kill them” (someone replied).

“God is dead – Nietzsche”, (someone wrote).   “Nietzsche is dead – God”, (another graffiti writer added).

However, graffiti can also be a form of vandalism. Some graffiti writers vandalise walls of buildings with obscenities and various kinds of abuse. Compared to many of these, the following slogan does not seem obscene at all: “Eat beans, America needs gas”. In most countries graffiti is regarded as a criminal offence. In Britain, if you are caught painting walls, you can be punished with a fine, or even sent to prison for up to ten years.

The authorities can also order you to remove every trace of your activity. Local authorities organise graffiti removing squads, and the London Underground spends about two million pounds every year on cleaning trains and station walls. This, however, does not discourage numerous graffiti writers who cover the walls of the whole world with thousands of new pictures and comments every year.  [taken from “Tests in English”]

Do you know any funny and wise graffiti slogans?

Texting / messaging

Chat Abbreviations

Abbreviations are short forms of words or phrases. Abbreviations are often used in chatrooms because they are easy to type and they save time. They are also used for texting or direct/instant messaging. Many people also use abbreviations on social media sites. Here are some common abbreviations. Some are shown here in capitals (for example: AFK), but they can also be in small letters (for example: afk).
