I'll go to hell for this....

A Catholic priest and a Protestant Bishop were having a discussion about how people have forgotten the true meaning of Easter. To test their theory they decided to walk up to total strangers in the street and ask them about the meaning of Easter.
They approached the first person and said "Sir, can you tell us what you know about Easter?"
The man replied "Easter? Isn't that when the kids dress up and go door to door and get candy?"

The religious duo looked at each other and shrugged their shoulders.
They approached a second person with the same question. The reply was "Easter? Ah yes, that is when the Easter Bunny leaves baskets of colored eggs and chocolate for the children. Isn't it something to do with rights of spring?"

Again the pair shrugged their shoulders and in their frustration decided to ask a third person, someone who at least looked educated. "Sir? Can you tell us the true meaning of Easter?" they asked.
"Easter? That is the most Holy of all religious holidays. That celebrates the resurrection of Christ. Jesus was crucified on Good Friday and his body placed in a cave and the entrance was covered by a rock. On Sunday the rock had moved and Jesus appeared. He saw his shadow and there were six more weeks of winter."

Ba da bing!

Happy Groundhog day!

That's a good one. I have a really good one about priests, and another one about nuns, but as a catholic I feel guilty even thinking about telling it.
