Carl, my uncle John, a Baptist preacher (who also took a nip from the fruit
of the vine occasionaly) told me of a Pentecostal baptismal service in the
creek near our old homestead in N. La. He said that the town reprobate got
saved and was to be baptized. When they had dunked him several times and
most of the congregation was in the water, someone noticed a plug of Brown
Mule chewing tobacco in the water. The deacon shouted, "Put him under agin
Rev, the sins comin' off him in chuncks."

good suggestion,
