    I walked past this many times at Burning Man this year. I should have gone in but I figured me and Him didn’t have much to say to each other.

  2. Paul Hooson says:

    Thank you so much Rodney. I loved this religious joke myself. If given half the choice, I’d rather always pray someone up than tear them down in some way. I used to host some Bible study groups at my home at one time, and I loved to tell some inspirational and clean jokes like this that were both encouraging and faith building. This one was one of my favorites to tell. Everyone loved this story.

  3. rodney dill says:

    @Paul Hooson: I knew it was a recycled joke, I think I’ve heard a version of it before. Probably didn’t fit the picture as good as it could, but it was too funny.

  4. Paul Hooson says:

    @rodney dill: I can’t take full credit for this joke. But, I did love my version of it and the great reuse of the punchline. It’s a greal moral story as well as clever I think. I don’t know who credit for older versions of this joke. But, the premise is great.

  5. Mark Ryan says:

    Awe man, I would have put: “Uh Lois, there’s a man burning here but I forgot my suit, can you bring it to me……don’t forget the cape.”, “I said please, didn’t I?”
