Jeanne Robertson – Don’t Go Rafting Without A Baptist In The Boat

Posted on Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

First comes prayer then comes the booze… whitewater rafting with the baptists.

You know, when you’re faced with the distinct possibility that the only way you are ever going to get out of a situation is in a “flight for life” helicopter, maybe a bit of the grape is all you can hope for.  Let the Baptists come over to the “other side” and bask in the warmth of sweet Morpheus…

Hey, don’t judge me just yet.  I’m Catholic and know all about the power of prayer laced with a big ol’ glass of wine.

Thanks again Jeanne Robertson for putting our lives in order.

When is a stereotype not a stereotype? When it keeps playing the same old tune, over and over and over again, proving the song’s lyrics are right. I have many friends of many different religious persuasions and if you put us all in the same whitewater rafting boat, I’ll bet we all come to the same conclusion – 1 part prayer, 2 parts liquor.

p.s. Check out all the fun at and I guarantee you’ll find lots to laugh at,  and admire, too.

    “What happens on the river… stays on the river.” Too funny.

    It’s like the old joke… If you ever go fishing with a Baptist make sure they bring a friend. Because if you take just one, they’ll drink all your beer.

    Too funny is right.

    Good joke. That’s what it’s really all about, eh? The witness.

    We rafted 9 miles of the White Salmon River yesterday trussed up in a wetsuit, water jacket, life jacket, zippered booties and topped off with the flattering pit helmet! When I looked down over that bank to the frothing, swirling water where we were to put the raft in, I knew I’d made a serious error in judgment. It was a wild ride!! I stayed in that raft simply because my feet were wedged so far under the air bags in the center I must have looked like a jumping jack. Alas, the fun came to and end, and I don’t think I ever need to have that much fun ever again!
