The Three Wise Men
In a small town there was a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. But one small feature seemed out of place. The three wise men were each wearing a firemen's helmet. Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left.
At a Quikie Mart on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded with laughter yelling at me, "Ain't you ever read the Bible?" I assured her that I had read it, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible.
She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said
"See, it says right here, them three wise man came from afar."
