A little boy was walking down a dirt road after church one Sunday afternoon when he came to a crossroads. A little girl was coming from the other direction.
'Hi,' said the little girl.
'Where are you going?' asked the little boy.
'I've been to church this morning and I'm on my way home,' she answered.
'I'm also on my way home from church. Which church do you go to?' he asked.
'I go to the Catholic church back down the road,' she replied.
'What about you? '
'I go to the Lutheran church back at the top of the hill,' he replied. Since they are both going the same way, they decide to walk together.
They came to a low spot in the road where spring rains had partially flooded the road. There was no way they could cross to the other side without getting wet.
'If I get my new Sunday dress wet, my Mom's going to skin me alive,' said the little girl.'
'My Mom'll tan my hide, too, if I get my new Sunday suit wet,' replied the little boy.
'I'll tell you what I think I'll do,' she said. 'I'm gonna pull off all my clothes, hold them over my head and wade across.'
'That's a good idea,' he replied. 'I'm going to do the same thing with my suit.'
They both undressed and waded across to the other side without getting their clothes wet. While standing in the sun waiting to drip dry before putting their clothes back on, the little boy finally remarked: 'You know, I never realized before just how much difference there really is between a CATHOLIC and a LUTHERAN!'
