A bridge too short

The Long Grove Covered Bridge, located in the Chicago suburb had a grand reopening Friday after extensive repairs following damage from a tall box truck in June. A WLS-TV crew was interviewing locals about the damage to the bridge Wednesday when another vehicle struck the bridge. The sound of the crash was recorded by the news station’s camera. A chartered school bus stopped before the bridge because, “Her GPS warned her she should not proceed with the type of vehicle she was driving. The occupants on the bus convinced her to proceed, which she did, and subsequently tore the boards from the bridge.” Officials said they are considering installing physical barriers on each side of the bridge to prevent too-tall vehicles from attempting to pass through.


Bridge to Humor

A lost hiker is on one side of a raging river when he sees a Buddhist monk on the other side. There are no bridges. He has no boat. He shouts out to the monk on the opposite bank. “How do I get to the other side?”
The Buddhist monk shouts back: “You are on the other side.”

A priest was standing on the side of the road, waving a church yard sign that said, “The end is near! Turn around before it’s too late!”
A man drove up to the priest in his car, rolled down his window, and said, “Leave us alone, you religious nuts!” He rolled the window back up and sped off in anger.
The priest thought to himself, “I knew my sign should have just said ‘Bridge Out’.”
