Sometimes our way of speaking gets in the way of the message. A case in point:

A priest and a pastor from the local churches are standing by the side of
the road, pounding a sign into the ground that reads:

The End is Near! Turn Yourself Around Now Before It's Too Late!

As a car speeds past them, the driver yells, "Leave us alone, you religious

From the curve they hear screeching tires and a big splash.

The pastor turns to the priest and asks, "Do you think the sign should just say 'Bridge Out’?"
