The Three Wise Men


In a very small, very Southern town there was a "Nativity Scene" in the main square made with such detail that I knew great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered me. The three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets. Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left the square and went to the diner for a bite.


Chatting with the waitress, I asked her about the helmets. She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, "Y'all are kidding me! You Yankees never do read the Bible!" I assured her that I did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible.


She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said, "See, it says right here, 'The three wise man came from afar.'"
