|Morning after the Flood 1928|
A Catholic priest, a Protestant minister, and a rabbi were walking along the beach together when a great angel with diaphanous wings approached them. He announced an apocalypse near at hand, telling them of a great flood that was to come the very next day. The priest hurried back to his church with a deeply troubled visage. "The end of the world is at hand," he intoned: "We must all make our last confessions, receive absolution, and prepare for the hereafter." The Protestant minister returned to his flock. "In just one day," he called out, "all the land will be covered with water. We must find it in our hearts and minds to accept the will of God." The rabbi, she too, made her way back to her congregation. With a great sense of urgency she turned to her audience and announced: "We have just twenty-four hours to learn to live underwater."
