    Default "So Much to Live For" [& any other worthwhile e-mail forwards]

    Got this today from a friend and thought it funny.

    --

    I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the
    edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said "Stop! Don't do it!"

    "Why shouldn't I?" he said.

    I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!"

    He said, "Like what?"

    I said, "Well...are you religious or atheist?"

    He said, "Religious."

    I said, "Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?"

    He said, "Christian."

    I said, "Me too! Are you catholic or protestant?"

    He said, "Protestant."

    I said, "Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?"

    He said, "Baptist!" I said, "Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of
    God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"

    He said, "Baptist Church of God!"

    I said, "Me too! Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you
    Reformed Baptist Church of God?"

    He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God!"

    I said, "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation
    of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915?"

    He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915!"

    I said, "Die, heretic scum", and pushed him off.

    Ah, so it was a parody of how people can be ridiculously divided by small issues, enlarging them to a ridiculous degree, correct?

    Oh. I thought it was non-fiction.

    Damn, Athenian, you're even worse than me about needing to have jokes explained.
