A father preparing for his son's baptism goes overboard with his answers to the priest's questions.

A young father went about making preparations for his son's baptism. Before baptizing the child, the priest accosted him in a bid to find out if the father was prepared for the spiritual process.

The priest asked:

"Baptism is a serious step. Are you prepared for it?"

The father of the boy, clearly misconstruing the priest replied that he was set for it. He revealed that he had his wife prepare appetizers for the guest and contracted the services of a caterer to supply his guests with cookies and drinks.

The priest immediately tried to correct the father, pointing to him that he was inquiring if he was prepared spiritually. The young father gave an even more shocking response.

"Oh, sure," came the reply. "I've got a keg of beer and a case of whiskey." the young father said. Hilarious right? Here is another joke where the speaker was misconstrued

The nurse watched in bewilderment as the whole thing played before her eyes. Unable to contain her shock, the nurse approached the wife of the ailing man to relay how impressed she was at her husband's generosity towards his family.

She said:

"Your husband must have been quite a man, amassing so much property to leave to all of you."
