    There were Five country churches in a small TEXAS town: The
    Presbyterian Church , the Baptist Church , the Methodist Church, the
    Catholic Church and the Jewish Synagogue.

    Each church was overrun with pesky squirrels .

    One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do
    about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they Determined
    that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn't
    interfere with God's divine will.

    In The BAPTIST CHURCH the squirrels had taken up habitation in the
    baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery
    and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were
    twice as many there the next week.

    The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a
    position to harm any of God's creation. So, they humanely trapped the
    Squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later,
    the squirrels were back.

    But - The Catholic CHURCH came up with the best and most effective
    solution. They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of
    the church. Now they only see them on Christmas and Easter.

    Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they took one
    squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision and they
    haven't seen a squirrel on the property since....
