Father OReilly, Mormon Bishop Smith and Rabbi Cohen are discussing religious conversion when the good Father astounds the other two by announcing that hes so good at it he could convert a bear to Catholicism. They all agree to make the attempt and meet in a weeks time to compare notes.
The next week, a slightly worn priest, lightly injured bishop and heavily bandaged rabbi meet for breakfast.
Father OReilly starts off. I had a devil of a time getting the bear to stay still so I could sprinkle some water on his head but I no sooner baptized him than he settled down as a good Catholic.
Bishop Smith nods. I had more difficulty, since we baptize by immersion. But when I finally got the bear under the water, he was a good Latter Day Saint.
They look at the rabbi, who sighs.
In hindsight, starting out with the circumcision may have been a mistake.
