we're not kathlick...

Three little boys couldn't get anyone to play with them and they decided it was because they hadn’t been baptized. So they went to the nearest church, but only the janitor was there. "We need to be baptized because no one will come out and play with us. Can you do it?" the boys asked. “Sure," said the janitor. He took them into the bathroom and dunked their heads in the toilet, and said, "You are now baptized!"
Outside, they asked each other, "'What religion are we?" One said, "We're not Kathlick, because they pour water on you. We're not Babits, because they dunk all of you in the water. We're not Methdiss, because they just sprinkle water on you." 
The littlest one said, "Didn't you smell that water?"
They all joined in asking, “Yeah what does that mean?”
"I think it means we're Pisskopailians!"
