Once a babtist---always a baptist

John Smith was the only Protestant to move into a large Catholic neighborhood. On the first Friday of Lent, John was outside grilling a big juicy steak on his grill.
Meanwhile, all of his neighbors were eating cold tuna fish for supper This went on each Friday of Lent. On the last Friday of Lent, the neighborhood men got together and decided that something had to be done about John, he was tempting them to eat meat each Friday of Lent, and they couldn't take it anymore.
They decided to try and convert John to be a Catholic. They went over and talked to him and were so happy that he decided to join all of his neighbors and become a Catholic. They took him to Church, and the Priest sprinkled some water over him, and said, "You were born a Baptist, you were raised a Baptist, and now you are a Catholic."
The men were so relieved, now their biggest Lenten temptation was resolved. The next year's Lenten season rolled around. The first Friday of Lent came, and just at supper time, when the neighborhood was setting down to their tuna fish dinner, came the wafting smell of steak cooking on a grill.
The neighborhood men could not believe their noses! WHAT WAS GOING ON? They called each other up and decided to meet over in John's yard to see if he had forgotten it was the first Friday of Lent?
The group arrived just in time to see John standing over his grill with a small pitcher of water. He was sprinkling some water over his steak on the grill, saying, "You were born a cow, you were raised a cow, and now you are a fish."

I found that joke very funny!
I had a geat aunt that was baptist,and she complained about the catholics.When she first met my wife to be her first comment was "Will you look at those Catholics,they go to church and then staight to a tavern,they're all a bunch of drunks." Little did she know my girlfriend (at the time) was catholic,ofcourse at the reception she bellied up to the bar with the rest of the Catholics. :>)

I find this post offensive. Only an ignorant and competive person would draw attention to such a irrelevant notion that has no substance and implies ridicule.

It's just a JOKE, fer chrissake. Get a life.

John    Posted 02-11-2004 at 04:55:08       [Reply]  [No Email]
It is not a subject that can, nor should it be joked about. Thus it is not just a joke.
Get a life.

How can you look at a duck-billed platypus and not believe God has a sense of humor?

Perhaps this should read- how can you look in a mirror and not believe God has a sense of humor? RN.

Yea and don't ya think that the water gittin sprinkled on the fish might wash some of the seasoning off it?

Clipper    Posted 02-11-2004 at 04:25:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
Steaks have a lot of substance....just ask my waistline. :^)

Clipper: who believes there is a place for some of God's creatures.....right next to the mashed taters.

Incidently, I mean that from the Catholic or the Baptist veiwpoint.

I meant mine from the Bar-B-Q specialist pernt of view...

Clipper: who would rather Bar-B-Q than fight...

John    Posted 02-11-2004 at 04:53:04       [Reply]  [No Email]
If you would rather Bar-B-Q, than leave other people alone. They are not hurting you nor do they want to. It does not look that way with you.
