Due to the fact I've been painting one weekend more, I'll just post this joke about painting:
Two men contracted to paint a small community church. Being very frugal, they pinched and scraped to spend the absolute minimum onmaterials. Then, when they were only partway through the job, they determined that they did not, after all, have enough paint to complete thejob.
Not wishing to spend any more money if they didn't absolutely have to,they decided they would just dilute the water-based paint they were using sothat it would last longer. They did this a couple more times before they finished, which caused striping on the church as the paint got lighter each time it was thinned.
The painters had just about gotten to the top of the steeple, when, all of a sudden, the sky darkened, and the rain started to pour down. As the paint streamed down the sides of the church, a voice boomed from the heavens: "Repaint, you thinners! Repaint, and thin no more!"
