Telling jokes in the snow

    Newer Older

    When we got to religious jokes, I tried, poorly, to tell this joke (one source):

    "One of my favorite stories is of the fellow who was about to jump off a bridge when another fellow runs up to him, crying: "Stop. Stop. Stop. Don't do it."

    The man on the bridge looks down and asks, "Why not?"

    "Well, there's much to live for."

    "Like what?"

    "Well, your faith. Are you religious?"

    "Yes."

    "Me, too. Christian or Buddhist?"

    "Christian."

    "Me, too. Are you Catholic or Protestant?"

    "Protestant."

    "Me, too. Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist?"

    "Baptist."

    "Me, too. Are you original Baptist Church of God or Reformed Baptist Church of God?"

    "Reformed Baptist Church of God."

    "Me, too. Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God Reformation of 1820, or Reformed Baptist Church of God Reformation of 1912?"

    "1912."

    Whereupon the second fellow turned red in the face, shouted, "Die, you heretic scum," and pushed him off the bridge.
