A request to God

A little boy wanted $100 very badly and his mother told him to pray to God for it. He prays and prays for weeks, but nothing turned up. He decided to write a letter to God requesting the $100.

When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to "God", they opened it and decided to send it to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister was impressed, touched and amused, so he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a check for $5.00. He thought this would appear to be a lot of money to the little boy.

The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down to write a thank you letter to God, which was as follows:

Dear God,

Thank you very much for sending me the money. I noticed that you had to send it through Ottawa. As usual, those BASTARDS deducted $95.00.
