The farmer was out working in his field, about a half mile
from his house.
In the distance, he sees his six year old son running to
him. When the son arrives, he tells his father that a
preacher has showed up unannounced. The father asks his
son which local preacher it is. The son responds that he
hasn't seen him before.
The farmer tells his son that he has a little more work to
do before he can head back to the house.
He tells his son to go back to the house and ask the
preacher if he is a Methodist. If he says yes, then go hide
the fried chicken that his mom is making.
If the preacher says he is a Protestant, then the son is to
go hide his moonshine.
If the preacher says that he is a Baptist, the son is to sit
on his mother's lap until he gets there!
