humor: Gone Fishing

A young boy came to Sunday School
late. His teacher knew that he was
usually very prompt and asked him
if anything was wrong.

The boy replied that he was going
fishing, but his dad told him that
he needed to go to church.

The teacher was very impressed
and asked the boy if his dad had
explained to him why it was more
important to go to church than to
go fishing.

The boy replied, Yes, Dad said he
N'T have enough bait for both
of us.
