Which religion is the best?

Four cotton farmers were having a drink and a chat together. As often happens, the conversation turned to religion, and soon the three younger farmers were arguing heatedly. Unable to resolve their differences, they turned to Old Jim, the fourth man, who had been sitting quietly listening to them.
"Old Jim," they asked "which of these religions is the right one?"
Old Jim looked at them thoughtfully, pulled his chair closer and said, "Well boys, you know when you take your cotton over to the cotton gin on the other side of the mountain there's three ways you can go. You can go straight over the mountain, but that way's mighty steep, and dangerous too. You can go up the east road, and that's the shortest, but it's rougher'n tarnation. Or you can take the road that goes right round, and it's the gentlest and smoothest road you can hope for but it's the longest so you'll have to allow more time to get there.
"But when you get to the cotton gin, the man don't ask you which way you came, he just says, 'Man, how good's your cotton?' "

very insightful. but i was just thinking:

what if you got there and all of a sudden, you realize that you left the cotton sack at home and instead, you brought your dirty laundry?

#-o Then you're not cut out to be a cotton farmer.

If your clothes were 100% cotton, though......

Yes, indeed this was somewhat insightful. And also the way I look at things...what's it matter??? doesn't.

How true...although if you clothes were 100% cotton...then I'd beware of the cotton man.
