Why Lucifer was kicked out of heaven:

So God was creating all the animals for the world, with some help and feedback from all the angels. He made giraffes, hippopotamuses (hippopotamusi?), sparrows, etc. Then he got to South American jungle cats. He was doing fine until he created a small spotted cat with double the normal legs.

One of the angels spoke up, "God! What are you doing? What in Your Name is that?!?"

God said, "It's an ocelot."

The angel shook his head. "God..."

"...You can't make an ocelot with eight freaking legs!"

Getting slow in my old age; took four readings of the punchline to get it...

I challenge you tell that joke out loud, with the proper inflection to make it work (I couldn't)

No one gets it live. No one. My dad went so far as to claim he's never heard the phrase...

I'm clueless on this one. Can somebody explain?

Well, there's an old saying that insists the end justifies the means...something about how you make omelets. I'll be more direct if that doesn't work.

O.K. Nathan, I have read it at least four times and I still can't get it.

Just when I thought myself witty....

It's a pun based on the old saying: "You can't make an omelet without breaking eggs." And since the pun was so bad, God kicked the angel out of Heaven.

You know, Nathan, I like reading your puns, but...
