View Full Version : Pesky Squirrels

There were four country churches in a small Alabama town:

The Presbyterian Church, the Baptist Church, the
Methodist Church and the Catholic Church.
Each church 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 predestined
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 baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a large
plywood cover on the baptistery and flood it. The squirrels
escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.

The Catholic group 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 Methodist 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 and Easter.
