Sunday Funnies

There were four country churches in a small Texas town. Each church was overrun with annoying squirrels.

One church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration, they determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's will.

In another church, the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many the next week.

The third church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creation. So, they humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.

But -- the fourth church came up with a brilliant and effective solution. They baptized the squirrels and made them members - now the squirrels only show up at Christmas and Easter.

Ralph, you were being nice. Here we say "the Baptist preacher" did the baptizing. [I'm Baptist, I don't mind them saying that.]

The Minnesota variation is that the Lut'ran pastor confirmed them, same result. It's funny because it's true. Some Catholic friends of ours said a couple of years ago at a packed Holiday Mass (this works either way, I don't remember which it was) "those of you looking for the red (or white) flowers on the alter, that's the OTHER holiday."
