A Catholic Priest, a BaptistPreacher, and a Rabbi all served as
Chaplains to the students of the University of Maine.
They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to
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 do an experiment. They
would all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and
attempt to convert it to their religion.
Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their experiences.
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, the Baptist, 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 exclaimed, 'WELL, brothers,
you KNOW that we Baptists 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."
Well that's it then, colour me secure!
