Fishing with the clergymen

Discussion in 'OGF Comedy Corner' started by saintmathew, Oct 12, 2004.

  1. Two members of the local clergy, a Methodist preacher and a Catholic priest, regularly go fishing on Mondays.

    When a rabbi moved to town, they invite him to go with them to their favorite fishing hole.

    They row out to the right spot and throw out the anchor, and sit and drown worms for a while. After a bit, the Methodist preacher announces that he is out of bait. He stands up and walks across the water to the bank to get some more bait, then walks back and gets in the boat.

    The rabbi looks at him bug-eyed, unable to believe what he is seeing.

    They fish some more. Then the priest announces he needs a soda, so he too walks over to the bank and gets a drink, and clambers back into the boat, dry as can be.

    The rabbi begins to wonder if there something special about Christian clergy, or are they playing a joke on him? But he decides to try this, too. So he announces he's hungry, stands up, steps out of the boat and immediately sinks in over his head in the water.

    The two clergymen pull him up sputtering.

    As they pull him in, the priest says, "Do you think we should have told him about the rocks?"
