Saturday Smile

From a church newsletter:

God is sitting in Heaven
when a scientist says to God:
"Lord, we don't need you anymore.
Science has finally figured out a way
to create life out of nothing.
In other words,
we can now do what you did in the beginning."

"Oh, is that so? Tell me. replies God.

"Well," says the scientist, "we can take dirt
and form it into the likeness of you and
breathe life into it, thus creating ... man."

"Well, that's interesting. Show me."

So the scientist bends down to the earth
and starts to mold the soil.

Oh no, no, no ... interrupts God,
Get your own dirt.
