Each Monday during Lent Pray Tell offers some Lenten laughs.
For many religious, this is the time of year for sacrifice and renewal of the spirit in the form of release from habits and vices. Regardless of your faith, can you see how you might benefit from giving up something for lent? Maybe you might want to consider this person’s advice: “I’m giving up the past tense for lend.”

A man took his young son to a baseball game. While they were sitting there, he asked the boy what he was going to give up for Lent. The boy replied, “I don’t know, Dad. What are you going to give up?”
His father said, “I’ve thought about this a lot and decided to give up liquor.”
Later in the game, the beer man came by, and the man ordered a beer. His son objected, “Hey, I thought you were giving up liquor!”
His dad answered, “Hard liquor, son. I’m giving up hard liquor. This is just a beer.”
To which the boy replied, “Well then, I’m giving up hard candy.”
