One fine day while Marty Mac the fly was buzzing around listening to his compound ipod, he came upon a praying mantis. "Hey mantis! Whazzup and why are you praying?""I am praying for my breakfast to arrive," said the smiling mantis."Before you eat anything, may I bring my friend here? He would love to see such a devout insect, such as yourself, enjoying a hearty breakfast!""That would be lovely, it would certainly start my day off with a bang.""Stay right here and I'll return with my little friend." The fly yelled as he flew off into the misty morning.Five minutes later, the mantis heard a click and turned to see the barrel of a cannon pointed directly at his triangular head."Meet my little friend!" the fly said calmly just before the bang.Moral: Be careful what you pray for...and, oh yeah, choose your friends wisely.

The Arminian Mantis found itself trapped at end of a Dutch Elm twig with no place to jump to, having encountered some Calvinist bugs, armed with the Canons of Dort.
Good one...with a read-between-the-lines moral every Arminian mantis should heed.
