Goobers Words of Wisdom: 4-5-09
In celebration of Palm Sunday, Pastor Gary’s sermon was a monologue/skit of Peter’s thoughts from Jesus’ arrest in the Garden of Gesthemane through his denial and until Jesus forgave him after the resurrection.
Goober, Ricky and Mickey were all set to celebrate Palm Sunday in style. Ricky got out the chainsaw, Mickey pulled out the battleaxe, and Goober got his toolbox and SUV all ready to go.
Needless to say Pastor Gary was a little confused. Dressed in his Peter outfit and needing to continually duck the battleaxe, Pastor Gary asked Goober what was going on.
Goober explained that he and the boys were getting ready to celebrate Palm Sunday by cutting off people’s ears and then going to Florida afterwards. Pastor Gary did a double take. Goober then explained very quickly that cutting off people’s ears was in homage to Peter’s act of bravery in defending Jesus. The toolbox was in case Pastor Gary couldn’t pray the ears back on, then Goober would use his staple gun to put the ears back on.
Pastor Gary, ducking the battleaxe, told Goober and the boys that Peter cutting off Malchus’ ear was not heroic and that Jesus actually scolded Peter for doing it. After convincing all three that cutting off ears was not a good idea, Pastor Gary finally asked Goober why he had his SUV out.
Goober pulled has patented *sigh* used when Pastor Gary fails to see what Goober thinks is plainly obvious. Goober then said it was to celebrate the day by bouncing in Florida and obviously they’d need to drive because Pastor Gary couldn’t afford airplane tickets.
“What do you mean, bouncing in Florida?” Pastor Gary asked. “What does bouncing in Florida have to do with Palm Sunday?”
“Palm Springs, of course,” Goober replied as he, Ricky and Mickey began bouncing off stage.
