Walking on Water                 Back Home / Back to Redneck

Thanks to Lisa for sending this one!

Bubba had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.

It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all
been able to walk on water on their 21st birthday. On that special day,
they'd each walked across the  lake to the bar on the far side for their first legal drink.

So when Bubba's 21st birthday came around, he and his pal Jim Bob
took a boat out to the middle of the lake, Bubba stepped out of the boat
and nearly drowned! Jim Bob just barely managed to pull him to safety.

Furious and confused, Bubba  went to see his grandmother. 'Grandma,'
he asked, 'it's my 21st birthday, so why can't I walk 'cross the lake like
my pappy, his father, and his father before him?'

Granny looked deeply into Bubba's troubled eyes and said,

'Because your father, your grandfather and your great grandfather
were born in January, and you were born
in July, you idiot!'
