A man was caught in a flood. Two men came by in a boat to rescue him but he waved them away shouting, “No, the Lord will save me.”
One hour later another boat came along, but again the man said, “No, the Lord will save me.”
Eventually, a helicopter arrived but the man insisted, “The Lord will save me.”
Unfortunately, the man drowned and at the gates of Heaven he asked St. Peter, “Why didn’t the Lord save me?” and St. Peter replied…
“For crying out loud, he sent two boats and a helicopter! What more do you want?”
– A joke I particularly like, which appeared on a birthday card I was sent recently by my sister. An old one I know but I thought it worth sharing nevertheless!
