Bear Joke

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

This came to me from a buddy in Oz.



A Catholic Priest, a Baptist Preacher, and a Rabbi all served as chaplains
to the students of Northern Michigan University in Marquette . They would
get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop.

One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't really
all that hard - a real challenge would be to preach to a bear.

One thing led to another, and they decided to experiment. They would
all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to convert it.

Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their experience.

Father Flannery, who had his arm in a sling, was on crutches, and had
various bandages on his body and limbs, went first. 'Well,' he said, 'I
went into the woods to find me a bear. And when I found him, I began to

read to him from the Catechism. Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with
me and began to slap me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water,
sprinkled him and, Holy Mary Mother of God, he became as gentle as a lamb.
The Bishop is coming out next week to give him first communion and confirmation.'

Reverend Billy Bob spoke next... He was in a wheelchair, had one arm and

both legs in casts, and had an IV drip. In his best fire-and-brimstone oratory,
he claimed, 'WELL, brothers, you KNOW that we don't sprinkle! I went out and
I FOUND me a bear. And then I began to read to my bear from God's HOLY WORD!
But that bear wanted nothing to do with me. So I took HOLD of him and we began
to wrestle. We wrestled down one hill, UP another and DOWN another until we came
to a creek. So I quickly DUNKED him and BAPTIZED his hairy soul. And just like
you said, he became as gentle as a lamb.. We spent the rest of the day
praising Jesus..Hallelujah!

The priest and the reverend both looked down at the Rabbi, who was lying
in a hospital bed. He was in a body cast and traction with IVs and monitors
running in and out of him. He was in really bad shape. The Rabbi looked up and said:

"Looking back on it, ...... circumcision may not have been the best way to start."
