Each Friday night after work,
smokincowboy would fire up his smoker and cook a venison steak. But, all of smokincowboy'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 smokincowboy, and suggested that he become a Catholic.
After several classes and much study, smokincowboy 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."
smokincowboy's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived, and the wonderful aroma of smoked venison filled the neighborhood.
The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors, and, as he rushed into smokincowboy's yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in amazement.
There stood smokincowboy, clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully sprinkled over the smoking meat and chanted: You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised a deer, but now you a catfish.
