In a small and wealthy area there lived a Catholic Priest, a Protestant Minister and a Rabbi. They lived as neighbors and had a friendly rivalry between each other. One not to be outdone by the other, they would compare the size of their congregation, their houses, their wealth -- anything.
One day the Rabbi bought a new Jaguar, so the others also bought new cars, one fancier than the next.
The Priest was so proud of his new Mercedes that he put it on a bit of a public display, scooped some up some water and actually baptized the car for all to see. The minister, not to be outdone, hired a crane and dipped his car into a pool in a full baptism ceremony.
Ever the competitive clergyman, the Rabbi took his car and cut off a small piece of the exhaust pipe.
