UU's laughing about themselves

Stealing UU jokes from Facebook, what a pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon...

You may be a Unitarian Universalist if:

  • you think socks are too formal for a Summer service.

  • you know at least 5 ways to say "Happy holidays!"

  • your idea of a guy's night out is going to a N.O.W. rally.

  • unleavened bread is part of your Easter Brunch.

  • you refer to construction paper as "paper of color."

  • the name of your church is longer than your arm.

  • you find yourself rewriting a church survey, rather than taking it.

  • you call up your minister in the middle of the night, panicking because you are starting to believe in God.

  • to explain your personal theology, you have to use interpretive dance.

  • you take your day planner to church instead of the Bible.

"As we welcome our newest members and visitors, it is only fair to let them know what we Unitarian Universalists are like and what we expect.

  • We are friendly. If you are not friendly, out you go!

  • We are genuine people. Even our phonies are real phonies.

  • We are always sincere even if we have to fake it.

  • We aren't sure how ambivalant we should be.

  • We believe in tolerance and cannot stand intolerant people.

  • We are optimists. Anyone who doesn't look on the bright side depresses us.

  • We are more non-competitive than other groups.

  • We believe in equality; everyone is as good as the next person and a whole lot better.

  • Every Unitarian is a feminist, so he has to watch his language.

  • The organization is run democratically because the president insists on it.

  • We have our critics, but they are paranoid

  • We are prompt about being late to meetings.

  • Dogmatism is absolutely forbidden.

  • Freedom of belief is rigidly enforced.
And to this wonderful place we joyfully welcome you."


Ooh! I just found a site that gives you random UU jokes.

Q: Why did the Unitarian-Universalist cross the road?
A: To support the chicken in its search for its own path


Alright, one more and then I'll quit:

A devout Christian was arguing with a UU about the existence of God. He said, "Ok, just prove there is no God."

The UU quipped, "You can't prove there is no God - you have take it on faith."
