John King was a Baptist, he had moved into a large Catholic neighborhood. On the first Friday of Lent, John was outside grilling a big juicy steak on his grill.
Meanwhile, all of his neighbors were eating cold fish for supper. This went on each Friday of Lent. On the last Friday, the neighborhood men got together and decided something had to be done about John, they just couldn't take it anymore.
They decided to try and convert John into being a Catholic. They went over and talked to him and were so happy when he decided to convert his faith. They took him to church,and the priest sprinkled some water over him and said "you were born a Baptist, you were raised a Baptist, and now you are a Catholic". The men were so happy that this was now resolved and their biggest temptation for lent was gone.
The next year as lent once again rolled around,and just at supper time on the first day of Lent; as they were sitting down to a cold supper of tuna, came the wafting smell of a steak cooking on the grill. They couldn't believe their noses. "What was going on?" They called up each of the men in the neighborhood and went over to John's yard to see if he had forgotten it was the first Friday of Lent?
They arrived just in time to see John standing over his grill with a pitcher of water. He was sprinkling some water over his steak on the grill, saying "you were born a cow, raised a cow and now you are a fish!"
