Deity and Deer


An Irishman is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes
upon a preacher baptizing people in the river. He proceeds into the water,
subsequently bumping into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is
almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon, he asks the drunk, “Are
you ready to find Jesus?”

The drunk shouts, “Yes, I am.”So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him back and asks, “Brother, have you found Jesus?” The drunk replies,
“No, I haven’t found Jesus!” The preacher, shocked at the answer, dunks him
again but for a little longer. He again pulls him out of the water and asks,
“Have you found Jesus, brother?”

The drunk answers, “No, I haven’t found Jesus!” By this time, the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk again —but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds, and when the drunk beginskicking his arms and legs about, he pulls him up. The preacher again asksthe drunk, “For the love of God, have you found Jesus?” 

The drunk staggers upright, wipes his eyes, coughs up a bit of water,
catches his breath, and says to the preacher, “Are you sure this is where he fell in?”

 Never pass up an opportunity to use a joke as a seq-way to a serious subject. While 2016-04-12_0938listening to the CBC News this morning I learned that New Brunswick is the only province that does not make  wild life species populations available to the public. If you were to drive through Quispamsis or Rothesay you would concluded that the province is over-run with deer.
According to wildlife biologist Rod Cumberland nothing is further from the truth.   “Deer population is ‘catastrophically low,’ biologist says Wildlife biologist warns the condition of the herd could be the worst it has been in a century” Cumberland says the New Brunswick forests are in crisis for the deer population. Rod Cumberland, is a former government employee and explains what he saw in his 22 years following deer populations.

So there we have it a preacher helping a drunk Irishman find Jesus and an out-spoken wildlife biologist looking for answers from government and industry. What are the chances the Irishman will find Jesus and Cumberland will find the answers he’s looking for?
