The Sunday after Christmas, the Sunday School teacher told her students about an angel appearing to Joseph in a dream, warning him about danger to the baby Jesus and telling him how to escape from it.

After the story time, the students were given an opportunity to draw a picture about the story.  Most of the pictures were predictable, but Larry's had an odd element in it.

"Larry, I see Joseph and Mary with the baby Jesus on a donkey, but what is that following the donkey?

"It's the flea, teacher."

"Flea...? Ah...what flea?" asked the teacher.

To which the boy faithfully repeated the Bible verse:

"Take Mary and Jesus and flea to Egypt.  There's Mary; there's Jesus; and there's the flea."
