Hope you get a chuckle from this one.


Now I don't care who you are, what religion you are, where you live, or how old you are.........this is funny!


There were five houses of religion in a small Florida town:
The Presbyterian Church,
The Baptist Church ,
The Methodist Church,
The Catholic Church,
The Jewish Synagogue

Each Church and Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.
One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were pre-destined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will.

In The Baptist Church the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistry. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it.

The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.

The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creation. So, they humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.

But......The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution.. They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Easter.

Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they took one squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision and they haven't seen a squirrel on the property since.


For all who appreciate the outdoors, this is the rarely photographed South Florida Squirrel.

Life is too short for drama & petty things,

Been on the phone with friend Frieda who lives in NC now, and am all talked out and ready for bed. But these cracked me up. Especially the Jewish one! Haha.

Have a good night, Patty.

Hilarious! Now I know what to do with the squirrels that eat all my birdseed. But being Congregationalist, I should by rights call all the squirrels together and let them decide how to handle the problem themselves. And after they've taken a vote on it the ones who are disgruntled with the results would probably go off and find another place to populate.
