The Convert

I was sent this in a fila forum!!!!

Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill and cook venison steak. But, all of Bubba's neighbors were Catholic--and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Friday.

The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.   The priest came to visit Bubba and suggested that he become a Catholic.

After several classes and much study, Bubba attended Mass---and the Priest sprinkled holy water over him and said,  "You were born a Baptist and raised as a Baptist but now you are Catholic."

Bubba's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood.
The priest was called immediately by the neighbors.

As the priest rushed into Bubba's yard, clutching a rosary, and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in amazement.  There stood Bubba, clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted: "You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised a deer, but now you is a catfish."

and this Wednesday, I'm supposed to pick up my first box-o-processed-fish-sticks for the family.

I love Lent! I get to try out so many tuna-noodle casurole dishes, meatless spegettie sauces and of course, cheese ravioli!  I just have to live with my kids wanting to strangle me by Easter.
