The town drunk stumbles upon a baptismal service on Sunday afternoon down by the river. Seeing all the people in the river, he proceeds to walk down into the water and stand next to the preacher. The minister takes notice of him and says, “Brother, are you ready to find Jesus?”
The drunk looks back and says, “Well, mister preacher, I reckon so.”
The minister then dunks the fellow under the water and pulls him right back up. “And have you now found Jesus?” the preacher asks.
“No sir, can’t say as I did.” the drunkard replies.
The preacher dunks him under again, this time a bit longer, then brings him up and asks, “Now, brother, have you found Jesus?”
“Not yet, mister preacher, not yet.”
The preacher, now angry, holds the man under for a good thirty seconds before bringing him back up. The preacher asks in a harsh tone, “For the love of God, brother, have you found Jesus yet?”
The drunkard wipes his eyes and asks, “Are you sure this is where he fell in?”
