Some Belated Easter-time Humor…

though you could think of it as a “communing with nature chortle ™”. This was received from an old retired Navy buddy. And as the news is still more of the same (even though sports wise, there is still some sort of final four thang going on with an Illinois flavor to it…and the Bulls might even make a post season appearance, who’d a thought.)

An atheist was taking a walk through the woods.
What majestic trees!
What powerful rivers!
“What beautiful animals!” he said to himself.
As he was walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.
He turned to look. He saw a 17 foot grizzly charge towards him.
He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer.
He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw the bear right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.
At that instant the Atheist cried out: “Oh my God!?
Time stopped.
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky:
“You deny my existence for all of these years, teach others I don’t exist, and even credit creation to a cosmic accident.
Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?”
The atheist looked directly into the light, “It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps could you make the bear a Christian?”
“Very well,” said the voice.
The light went out.
The sounds of the forest resumed.
Then the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head and spoke:
“Lord, bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.”
