The Hunter, the Bear, and God

The headache that was trip-hammering in my left eye yesterday has made a surprise return engagement. And, since I promised someone no flatulent humor on Sundays, here is religious joke tide you over ...

The Religious Hunter
A man was out hunting. He just happened to be hunting bears. As he trudged through the forest looking for the beasts, he came upon a large and steep hill. Thinking that perhaps there would be bear on the other side of the hill, he climbed up the steep incline and, just as he was pulling himself up over the last outcropping of rocks, a huge bear met him nose to nose.

The bear roared fiercely. The man was so scared that he lost his balance and fell down the hill with the bear not far behind. As he tumbled down the hill, the man lost his gun. When he finally stopped at the bottom, he found that he had a broken leg. Escape was impossible and so the man, who had never been particularly religious (in fact this just happened to be a Sunday morning), prayed, "God, if you will make this bear a Christian I will be happy with whatever lot you give me for the rest of my life."

The bear was no more than three feet away from the man when it stopped dead in its tracks... looked up to the heavens quizzically... and then fell to its knees and prayed in a loud voice, "O Lord, bless this food of which I am about to partake."

And, send more my way soon, please.Unlike the bear image I posted on my Hug a Friend Day, this one was created by me using a stock photo of a bear and my limited skills in Paint Shop Pro. I wasn't going to do a new image for this post, but it actually helped me forget about the blazing supernova burning in my skull. I hope you like it. It turned out cute, I think. ^.^;;

That was cute! :) Why is he glowing though? Can I show this to someone to use?

Thank you.

The bear is glowing because ... well, I really don't know why I made him glow. An angelic aura, perhaps, from being touched by God?

Feel free to pass around the image. Just be aware I did not take the original photo of the bear, merely swiped it from the interweb and mucked with it. and the joke? Well that's an oldie but a funny, so pass that around ,too, if you want.
