A priest, a minister, and a rabbi decide to have a competition to determine which of them is doing the best at his job. So each one went into the woods, found a bear, and attempted to convert it.
Meeting back up with each other later the priest begins by saying, "When I found the bear, I read to him from the catechism and sprinkled him with holy water. Next week is his first Communion."
The minister answered saying, "I found a bear by the stream, preached him a sermon from God's holy Word, and the bear got baptized right then and there!"
The priest and minister then looked down at the rabbi who is lying on a gurney in a full-body cast. "Looking back," says the rabbi, "maybe I shouldn't have started with the circumcision."
"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine..."
