I was SCUBA diving at one of Florida’s many beautiful, clear water springs with some friends back in the mid ’90’s once. A thunderstorm came up and we all gathered under one of the well designed masonry and steel shelters, and we were telling jokes. At one point I told a God joke and the exact moment I delivered the punch line a cloud to ground lightning strike hit. Nearby? Nearer than nearby. Flash to bang time was 0 (zero). I’ve never again told a God joke, and I’ve always felt it my obligation to tell this story whenever I see or hear one.
