Minister joke

[From Alberts wife Wilma, who claims it is true:]

One of the problems dealt with during the training of Southern
Baptist ministers is how to handle those uncomfortable situations
in which, while the minister would be forbidden to lie, the truth
would be hurtful if not down right cruel.

As a particular case, when faced with a particularly ugly baby
–and, sadly, they do exist– the prospective minister is taught
to throw up his hands while emitting a delighted Why! Its a baby!

So our scene shifts to a large Baptist convention. The Bishop,
making the rounds, comes upon a young newly ordained minister who is
also a recent, proud papa. Looking down, the Bishop says, Why, its
a baby! whereupon the young minister decks him.
