Baptism - immersion or sprinkling?

I couldn't resist including this:
An Anglican Vicar says to a Baptist pastor, "If I immerse somebody just up to his ankles, is that enough?"
"No," answers the Baptist.
"How about up to his knees?"
"Nope."
"How about up to his shoulders?"
"No, sir!"
"You mean I've got to get the water over the top of his head?"
"That's right," says the Baptist.
"Good," says the Vicar. That proves that it's the top of the head that's the important part to get wet and that's what we do - sprinkle the head."
