What does it mean to be baptized?

As seen recently on Facebook, as posted there by a reader of this blog (and reposted here, anonymized, with permission):

The situation: a parent talking to her child just before he turns four years old, saying that then he’ll be halfway to his eighth birthday.

Parent: What happens when you are eight?
Child: I get baptized.
Parent: What does it mean to be baptized?
Child: I drown.

I’m thinking that maybe they’re going to do a bit more teaching on that subject—but if they don’t, i totally want to be at the baptism to see his reaction.

I'm kind of hoping he keeps that idea... because it would be pretty fun to see his reaction. He's not afraid of being baptized. He was quite matter-of-fact about the whole drowning thing. So you can just plan a trip to here around mid-June 2016.
