Friday Funny

There seems to be jokes for every season. Here's a little one Kimmy sent me to commemorate the Lenten season.

John Smith was the only Protestant to move into a large Catholic neighborhood. On the first Friday of Lent, John was outside grilling a huge juicy steak on his grill. Meanwhile, all of his neighbors were cooking fish. This went on every Friday of Lent. On the last Friday of Lent, the neighborhood men got together and decided 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. So they decided to try to convert John to be a Catholic. They went over and talked to him and to their surprise and happiness they convinced him to convert. They took him to church, the Priest sprinkled water over him and said, "You were born a Baptist, you were raised a Baptist, and now you are Catholic." The men of the neighborhood were so relieved that their biggest Lent temptation was resolved.

The next year's Lenten season rolled around once again. The first Friday of Lent came, and right around suppertime, just as the entire neighborhood was sitting down to their fish dinners, the smell of steak cooking on a grill came wafting into their homes. The neighborhood men couldn't believe their noses; what was going on? They called each other up and decided to meet over at John's house to see if he had forgotten the first Friday of Lent. The group arrived just in time to see John standing over his grill with a small pitcher of water. As they watched, John sprinkled some water over the steak and said, "You were born a cow, you were raised a cow, and now you are a fish!"

Have a great Easter weekend everyone.
