Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill
and cook a 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 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 the first Friday night
arrived, and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood.

The neighbors called the Priest immediately, and, as he rushed into Bubba's yard,
clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in

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."
