She Bears

A minister was talking to a children’s Sunday school class about the Old Testament story of the children who mocked Elisha on his journey to Bethel.

For once, he had everyone’s attention, as he described how the youngsters taunted the poor old prophet and how they were punished – Two she-bears came out of the wild and ate 42 of them.

“And now, children,” said the pastor, wondering whether he had gotten his point across, “Who can tell me what we really learn from this story?”

A little girl in the front raised her hand and said, “We learned that one she-bear can eat 21 children all at once.”
