a hawk and a buzzard were sitting next to each other.
the hawk asked the buzzard "why don't you hunt for your food"?
the buzzard replied "the lord will provide".
the hawk just shook his head.
suddenly the hawk spied a mouse and swooped down on it.
right into a plate glass window and broke his neck.
the buzzard just shook his head and said "the lord provides".

A farmer is complaining to his minister about the harvest. "A danged rat chewed through my cornstalks, and a bunch of thieving crows took out a whole bushel of the ears when they were just about ripe. We'll be lucky to have enough food for ourselves this year."
The minister replies, "The Lord always provides. Even the beasts that crawl the earth and the birds that fill the skies are sated by His bounty."
"Yeah, with my corn!" rants the farmer.

@Jelle, you might want to do a little research into the surprisingly large differences between a weasel and an opossum.

..the said Opossum not to be confused with this Possum
 
What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
