Double Dipping

New York, New York-- [Following George’s baptismal service, Timmy walks up to the platform and begins a conversation with George.]

Timmy: What are you doing?

George: What?

Timmy: Did you just double dip?

George: Excuse me?

Timmy: You just double dipped?

George: Double dipped? What, what, what are you talking about?

Timmy: You were baptized a few years ago, weren’t you?

George: Yeah

Timmy: And you were just baptized again today?

George: Yeah

Timmy: Then you double dipped! You dipped in the baptismal. You back-slid… and you dipped again. Don’t you know you’re supposed to take one dip, and end it?

[George turns toward the baptismal and begins to descend into the water on his own yet again. Timmy grabs George’s arm.]

Timmy: Get out of that baptismal!

[An all-out brawl breaks out between George and Timmy.]

Oh man I love it!

You dip the way you want to dip. I'll dip the way I want to dip.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Oh, my!
Zwingli wouldn't have liked this double-dipping business.

He might have arranged for a "final dipping."

I loved that episode of Seinfeld...

Oh that was at a funeral reception, not a baptismal...
eeeaaaaarily similar to real life though.

Put your hand up on my hip, when you dip I dip we dip.

Keep it movin' on...

...double dipping, triple dipping.

Can we get choco-dipped? Waffle cones and extra scoops?

Hey! We could start advertising 're-dip' services!

Beautiful - keep it up!

What kind of baptismal fixture is that in the photo? It looks like a combination baptismal font and baptistery. How odd.
