A thought for Sunday

Man's Best Friend

This fundamentalist Christian couple felt it important to own an equally fundamentally Christian pet. So, they went shopping.

At a kennel specializing in this particular breed, they found a dog they liked quite a lot. When they asked the dog to fetch the Bible, he did it in a flash. When they instructed him to look up Psalm 23, he complied equally fast, using his paws with dexterity. They were impressed, purchased the animal, and went home (piously, of course).

That night they had friends over. They were so proud of their new fundamentalist dog and his major skills, they called the dog and showed off a little.

The friends were impressed and asked whether the dog was able to do any of the usual dog tricks as well. This stopped the couple cold as they hadn't thought about "normal" tricks.

Well, they said, "Let's try this out."

Once more they called the dog and they clearly pronounced the command, "Heel!"

Quick as a wink, the dog jumped up, put his paw on the man's forehead, closed his eyes in concentration, and bowed his head.

yes, very cute, have heard that one before

also heard a similar joke but different version, saying that it was a Baptist couple who adopted the dog, and when they asked the dog to heel and he did the same as in your joke, they were all surprised because they thought they had gotten a baptist dog, and not a pentacostal one

looking forward to seeing you guys saturday...Little One is very very excited about her birthday and the party

Great joke! I'd better share it in writing with people since I am a terrible joke teller. I can ruin even the funniest ones!
