CRUISE   3'2m?f Jesus buys tickets for Galilee cruise

AGENT -- Hi, welcome to Galilee cruises.

JESUS -- Hi, I'd like to book passage to the other side of the 
Sea of Galilee.

AGENT -- And your name, Sir?

JESUS -- Jesus. Jesus of Nazareth.

AGENT -- Mmm Hmmm. And how many in your party, Sir?

JESUS -- Thirteen. No, better make that twelve. I'll stay behind 
and catch up with them later.

AGENT -- Ah, this is the last boat of the day, sir.

JESUS -- Oh, that's okay, I'll walk.

AGENT -- You'll walk?

JESUS -- Yes.

AGENT -- This is a cruise, sir. You know, a boat on a lake.

JESUS -- Yes, I know.

AGENT -- By the way, sir, the captain says a storm is coming that 
is likely to make the water a bit choppy tonight. If any of your 
friends are prone to motion sickness, they should probably wait 
until tomorrow to cross the lake.

JESUS -- Oh, I'll take care of the storm.

AGENT -- YOU'LL take care of the storm.

JESUS -- Yes.

AGENT -- You'll catch up with them on the lake and YOU'LL take 
care of the storm?

JESUS -- Yes.

AGENT -- Uh Huh. Oh, ah, I should also warn you that the caterer 
who supplies the boat with the bread and fish...

JESUS -- ...he cut your order short.

AGENT -- How do you know that?

JESUS -- Don't worry about the food.

AGENT -- But, it's a long trip and the Captain says that all he 
has left over is six small barley loaves and four small fish.

JESUS -- We've fed a lot more people with a lot less food.

AGENT -- You have?

JESUS -- Yes. And don't worry about being out of wine.

AGENT -- How did you know that we are out of wine?

JESUS -- There will be plenty to drink. We had the same problem 
at a wedding in Canaan. As long as you have...

AGENT -- ...but we have...

BOTH --- ...five jars of water on board.

AGENT -- Is there an echo in here?

JESUS -- What do you mean?

AGENT -- Nothing. Now, there were just a couple more things that 
you should know, sir. Your friends will be sharing the boat with 
a blind man and a lame man. I hope you don't mind.

JESUS -- I'm sure my friends and I will make the most of it.

AGENT -- You said, "My friends and I..."?

JESUS -- Oh, yes, remember I told you, I'll be catching up with 
them later.

AGENT -- Yes, I believe you said you were walking, sir.

JESUS -- You'd better sell us 13 tickets. I'll be on board for 
half the trip.

AGENT -- Half the trip. Thirteen tickets it is. Her you go. Have 
a nice trip.

JESUS -- Thank you and gesundheit.

AGENT -- (sneezes) ...thank you. Huh? Just one more thing sir?

JESUS -- Yes?

AGENT -- Listen, I don't mean to pry. But, you seem to know a lot 
of things that you're not supposed to know. And you seem to be 
able to do things that you're not supposed to be able to do. 
And, well, I'm dying to know how to you do it.

JESUS -- Well, soon, very soon, I'll be DYING to show you.
