Holiday Groaner: Southern Wise Men

Southern Wise Men

In a small southern town there was a "Nativity Scene"
 that showed 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.
At a "Quik Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the lady
 behind the counter about the helmets.
She exploded into a rage, yelling at me,
"You darn 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 thru 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.'"

... And there you have your daily groaner for the holidays ...
