BAPTISM OF A DRUNK

Submitted by Rick Sack - 9 Jun 2002

A man is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes upon a preacher baptizing people in the river.

He proceeds to walk into the water and subsequently bumps into the preacher.

The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, and asks the drunk, "Are you ready to find Jesus?"

The drunk answers, " Yes, I am."

So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him up and asks the drunk, "Brother have you found Jesus?"

The drunk says, "No, I haven't found Jesus."

The preacher, shocked at the answer, dunks him into the water again, for a little longer this time.

He again pulls the drunk out of the water and asks again, "Have you found Jesus, my brother?"

The drunk again answers, "No, I haven't found Jesus."

By this time the preacher is at his wits' end and dunks the drunk in the water again-but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds and when he begins kicking his arms and legs he pulls him up.

The preacher again asks the drunk, "For the love of God, have you found Jesus?"

The drunk wipes his eyes, catches his breath and says to the preacher, "Are you sure this is where he fell in?"
