37. Like the old joke...
A guy is at his home during a storm....

A police man comes by and says, "we are evacuating the area"

The man says, "that's okay, God will provide..."

The waters are rising now and a fire rescue comes by in a boat.

The fireman says, "hop in the boat, we'll help you out."

The man says, "that's okay, God will provide..."

The water has now risen to the point that the man's house is submerged except for the roof. He sits on the roof calmly.

A helicopter comes by. The pilot shouts down to the man, "I'll send down a rope, climb up!"

The man says, "that's okay, God will provide..."

Finally, the water rises so high, the man drowns.

Up in heaven the man compains to God, "why didn't you help me??"

God replies, "I sent a police man, a boat and a helicopter, what more do you want????"
