A girl brings her fiancee home to meet her parents and the father asks him, “so what are your plans in life.”
The suitor responds, “well, I’m interested in pursuing a degree in theology.”
The father then asks, “well, what do you plan to do for a living with only a theology degree?”
The suitor, without a missed beat responds with “well, god will provide.”
The father then asks, “where will you two live?!” Again, the suitor responds with, “god will surely provide.”
Finally the father asks him, “have you made any long term plans at all?”
He replies, “no, but as I’ve stated, I’m sure god will provide.”
The dinner eventually concludes, and both the daughter and the suitor leave her parents house.
When a moment of quiet catches the mother, she softly asks her husband what he thought of the suitor.
He pauses for a second, and replies — “well, he’s broke, and fairly stupid, but on the other hand he thinks I’m god.”
