If the Coupe Opens It's Headers in the Forest...

No Coupes or Pharaohs, but came upon this old joke today and thought I'd pass it along.
An atheist was taking a walk through the woods. "What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!" he said to himself.

As he was walking alongside a river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look and saw a 7 foot grizzly charging towards him.

He took off as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer. Then he tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to get up but saw the bear right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

At that instant the Atheist cried out: "Oh my God!..."

Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky: "You have denied My existence for all of these years, taught others that I don't exist, and even credited creation to a cosmic accident. Do you really expect Me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to now count you as a believer?"

The atheist looked sheepishly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps, could you make the BEAR a Christian?"

"Very well," said the voice. The light went out and the sounds of the forest resumed. The bear dropped his right paw, then brought both paws together and bowed his head as he spoke:

"Lord, bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord Amen."
