Venison – Joke

Venison 2 - Venison - Joke

Each Friday night after work, Ole would fire up his barbeque on the shore of Arthurs Lake and cook a venison steak.

All of Ole’s neighbours were Catholic… and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on a Friday.

The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks wafted over the neighbourhood and was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.

The Priest came to visit Ole, and suggested that he become a Catholic.

After several classes and much study, Ole attended Mass… and as the priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said, “You were born a Lutheran and raised a Lutheran but now you are a Catholic.”

Ole’s neighbours were relieved, until Friday night arrived and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighbourhood.

The Priest was called immediately by the neighbours and he rushed over to Ole’s place clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in amazement.

There stood Ole, clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted:

“You vuz born a deer, you vuz raised a deer, but now you is a rainbow trout.”
