Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill and
cook a juicy 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 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 as the
priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said, "You were born a Baptist,
and raised a Baptist, but now you are a Catholic".
Bubba's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived, and
the wonderful aroma of grilled steak filled the neighborhood.
The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors, and, as he rushed
into Bubba's yard, 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 cow, you wuz raised a cow, but now you is a catfish!"
