Ignorance Can Be Funny

Subject: Sweet old lady

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had
never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and
kindness to all. One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and
she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have
a seat while she prepared tea.

As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister noticed
a cut-glass bowl sitting on top of it. The bowl was filled with water
and in the water floated, of all things, a condom! When she returned
with tea and scones, they began to chat.

The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and
its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and He could
no longer resist. "Miss Beatrice", he said, "I wonder if you would
tell me about this?" pointing to the bowl.

"Oh, yes," she replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through
the Park a few months ago and I found this little package on the
ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet
and that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I
haven't had the flu all winter."
