A Little Humor

Each Friday night

> after work, sun, snow or rain, Jack , being a Newfie, would fire

> up his outdoor grill and cook a moose steak.

>         But, all of Jack's

> neighbors were Catholic.

>         And since it was

> Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Friday.

>         The delicious aroma

> from the grilled moose steaks was causing such a problem for the

> Catholic faithful that they  finally talked to their

> priest. The priest came to visit Jack,

>         and suggested that he

> become a Catholic.

>         After several classes

> and much study, Jack attended Mass,

>         and as the priest

> sprinkled holy water over him, he said:

>          "You were born

> a Protestant and raised a Protestant, but now you are a Catholic."

>         Jack's neighbors were

> greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived,

>         and the wonderful

> aroma of grilled moose filled the neighborhood.

>         The priest was called

> immediately by the neighbors, and, as he rushed

>         into Jack's yard,

> clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped and

> watched in amazement.

>         There stood Jack,

> clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully

> sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted:

>         "You wuz born a

> moose, you wuz raised a  moose, but now you is a Codfish.

>Thanks Barry & Louise D.
