Every Friday evening after work "Van der Merwe" would braai a big, fat juicy steak. But his neighbours, being Catholic and therefore reluctant to eat meat on Fridays suffered agonies of temptation as the delicious aroma carried on the evening breeze.
They persuaded the priest to try and convert "Van"... And the priest was successful in doing so. "Van" attended mass, the priest sprinkled holy water over him and said:
"You were born a Protestant, raised a Protestant, but now you are a Catholic"
Everybody was delighted, but when Friday night came the wonderful aroma of grilled steak again wafted over the neighborhood.
The priest rushed into "Vans" garden just in time to see him clutch a small bottle of holy water, sprinkling It over the grilling meat and chanting:
"You was born a cow, you was raised a cow, but you is now a snoek!"
