>"Is this thing on?"

>

What do you get when you cross a Unitarian with a Jehovah’s Witness? A person who knocks on your door but doesn’t know why.

So now you’ve heard all my jokes. That one above and one I told you all several months ago.

My anthropology prof in grad school, when she was explaining ethnographic study, said that when you got their jokes, you were in.

In the new members class for the PCA church my husband and I are joining, the elder told one on Presbies:

How many Presbyterians does it take to change a lightbulb?

Change?

I think that one fits fundamentalists better.

Wait — there is one more:

In Heaven, the cooks are French, the police are English, the mechanics are German, the lovers are Italian, and the bankers are Swiss. But in Hell, the cooks are English, the police are German, the mechanics are French, the lovers are Swiss, and the bankers are Italian.

But I never tell it right, so it’s a pretty lame joke.

So now it’s Share Time. Tell us your best (religious) joke.

  1. >Well, “telling” a joke through a medium like this isn’t quite the same as doing it in person where delivery really counts.True! But I think I tell ’em better here. I’m not a very good joke teller.

  2. >Why do you never invite just one Baptist to go fishing with you? If you invite just one, he’ll drink all your beer.

  3. >What’s the difference between two Baptists and two Lutherans (or Presbyterians) in a liquor store? The two Lutherans will say “hi” to one another.

  4. >Well, “telling” a joke through a medium like this isn’t quite the same as doing it in person where delivery really counts.The last one reminds me of the joke my Indian friends like to tell.What is heaven? American salary, British house, Chinese food, and Indian wife.What is hell? Indian salary, Chinese house, British food, and American wife.

  6. >I think you mean ‘Universalist’. Jehovah’s Witnesses are unitarians… meaning not trinitarians.You obviously don’t get the joke. Ah, the risks of humor.

  7. >Umm… I think you mean ‘Universalist’. Jehovah’s Witnesses are unitarians… meaning not trinitarians.

  8. >To get this joke you need to know Mennonites. I live in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada which has the highest urban population of Mennonites. My Dad’s side is Mennonite so I embrace the cultural aspects of it (Ie. The AMAZING food), but don’t agree with a lot of the religious doctrine. So on to the joke:There is a new STD going around the Mennonite community. It jumps from Dyck to Dyck without any Reimer of Freisen.Do I need to explain that Dyck, Rriemer and Freisen are all really popular Mennonite names?
