Reminds me of this:
"I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge,
about to jump off. So I ran over and said 'Stop! don't do it!' 'Why shouldn't
I?' he said. I said, 'Well, there's so much to live for!' He said, 'Like what?'
I said, 'Well... are you religious or atheist?' He said, 'Religious.' I said,
'Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?' He said, 'Christian.' I said, 'Me too!
Are you Catholic or Protestant?' He said, 'Protestant.' I said, 'Me too! Are
you Episcopalian or Baptist?' He said, 'Baptist!' I said, 'Wow! Me too! Are you
Baptist church of god or Baptist church of the lord?' He said, 'Baptist church
of god!' I said, 'Me too! Are you original Baptist church of god, or are you
reformed Baptist church of god?' He said, 'Reformed Baptist church of god!' I
said, 'Me too! Are you reformed Baptist church of god, reformation of 1879, or
reformed Baptist church of god, reformation of 1915?' He said, 'Reformed
Baptist church of god, reformation of 1915!' I said,!
'Die, heretic scum,' and pushed him off."
