Little Johnny’s father was a pastor in a small church.
One day, his father told Little Johnny that a very important bishop was coming and that he would be staying with them. Little Johnny became very excited and asked his father if he would get to meet him. His father thought about this and decided that he would let Little Johnny bring the bishop tea in the morning and wake him up. Little Johnny agreed to do this and was very excited.
His father gave him instructions: first, knock on the door of the bishops room and then say to him “It’s the boy, my Lord, it’s time to get up.”
Little Johnny was very excited and rehearsed his lines repeating them over and over. Finally the day came and Little Johnny had learned all his lines. He went to the door and knocked. He was so excited and nervous though that his lines got mixed up and the boy said,
“It’s the Lord, my boy, and your time is up!”

The next morning at precisely four forty four a.m., Bernard called his neighbor back . . .
“Good morning, Mr. Williams…. Just called to say that I don’t *have* a dog.”
