Hi Robin,

Well, I would never have guessed that meaning. I'm glad you weren't testing me. I've never really believed in the narrow path anyway. Well, at any rate, my belief is that there are many narrow paths that all end up in the same place. So I guess I would have flunked anyway. :)

Would you mind explaining it to my dense mind though? The joke refers to Moses parting the waters, Jesus walking on the waters. OK those are straight biblical images. God commands the eagle to drop the frog with an "Old" Testament command, and wins the round, and the fact that the old man is God is clarified by Jesus calling him father. Again, a fairly standard biblical image. How does that point to a narrow path parable? I apologize for my denseness. I kill many a joke by not quite understanding. And if you'd rather not blow it, again, I understand completely.

Dinah

PS. Perhaps you should add to future jokes "Definitely not for Dinah". :)

And if anyone is wondering, this is why I usually don't participate on joke threads (or poetry threads either).
