A drunk stumbles into a baptismal service on Sunday afternoon down by the river. He walks down into the water and stand next to the preacher.
The minister turns and notices the old drunk and says, “Mister, are you ready to find Jesus?”
The drunk replies, “Yesh, Your Honor, I shur am!”
The minister dunks the fellow under the water and pulls him right back up.“Have you found Jesus?” he asked.
“Nooo, Your Highness, I shur dint!” says the drunk. The preacher then dunks him under for a bit longer, brings him up and says, “Now, brother, have you found Jesus?”
“Noooo, Your Majesty, I shur dint!” the drunk slurs again.
Disgusted, the preacher holds the man under for at least 30 seconds this time, brings him out of the water and says in a harsh tone, “My good man, have you found Jesus YET?”
The drunk wipes his eyes and says to the preacher, “Are you sure this is where he fell in?”
