In a small rural county there were 4 churches and a
Synaggogue. All became infested with squirrels and
something had to be done. So…….
The Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what
to do about their squirrels. After much prayer and
consideration, they determined the squirrels were
predestined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere
with God’s divine will.
At the Baptist Church the squirrels had taken an interest
in the baptistery. The Deacons met and decided to put a
water slide on the baptistery and let the squirrels drown
themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and unfortunately,
knew instinctively how to swim so twice as many squirrels
showed up the following week.
The Episcopal Church decided that they were not in a position
to harm any of God’s creatures. So, they humanely trapped
their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist Church.
Two weeks later the squirrels were back when the Baptists
took down the water slide.
But the Catholic Church came up with a very creative strategy.
They baptized all the squirrels and consecrated them as
members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas
Not much was heard from the Jewish Synagogue, but it’s rumored
that they took one squirrel and circumcised him. They haven’t
seen a squirrel on their property since.
