Thank you Dan! for the best laugh I've had in Days!  I laughed the more I read--Priceless!
 
(I totally agree with you--this is "clean" religious humor -- & yet true too.  We all need to laugh at ourselves--even religious people!)
 
{This is particularly humorous for me because I've been having a problem with squirrels in my flower garden digging up my tender flowers in their many pots.  I've tried everything to "humanely" discourage them--from black pepper, cayenne pepper (which burnt up my plants) to windmills, + feeding & setting water out for them, etc.  Nothing worked.  Until I find something that discourages them from digging in my pots--but doesn't prevent them from enjoying their habitat otherwise in scampering up & down the trees near the pots, I am endeavoring to co-exist with them.  Oh! & by the way, prayer hasn't worked either to keep them out of my pots.  I guess, just like the well-known axiom that rain falls on the "just & the unjust" & the farmers & the picnic-ers -- how's God gonna please 'em both? -- so my flowers & the squirrels both have a right to inhabit my yard.}
