There was this biker’s little rugrat who desperately wanted $100. His old man told him to pray to God for it. So he prayed and prayed for weeks, but nothing came up. Then he decided to write a letter to God requesting the $100.

When the postal workers received the letter addressed to “God,” they opened it and decided to send it to the President. The President was so impressed, touched and amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy $5. He thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.

The boy was so delighted when he received the $5 that he sat down and wrote a thank you letter to God.

Dear God. Thank you very much for the money. I noticed that you had to send it through Washington, DC. As usual, those bastards deducted $95.
