Need a laugh?


An old country preacher
> had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should
> give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young
> men his age, the boy didn’t really know what he wanted
> to do, and he didn’t seem too concerned about it. One
> day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to
> try an experiment. He went into the boy’s room and
> placed on his study table four objects:
> 1. A Bible.
> 2. A silver dollar.
> 3. A bottle of whiskey.
> 4. A Playboy magazine.
> 'I’ll just hide behind the door," the old
> preacher said to himself. “When he comes home from
> school today, I’ll see which object he picks up.”
> "If it’s the Bible, he’s going to be a
> preacher like me, and what a blessing that would be!
> "If he picks up the dollar, he’s going to be a
> business man, and that
> would be okay, too.
> "But if he picks up the bottle, he’s going to be a
> no-good drunken bum, and Lord, what a shame that would be.
> “And worst of all if he picks up that magazine
> he’s going to be a skirt-chasing womanizer.”
> The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son’s
> foot-steps as he entered the house whistling and heading for
> his room. The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he
> turned to leave the room he spotted the objects on the
> table. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect
> them.
> Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his
> arm. He picked up the silver
> dollar and dropped it into his pocket. He uncorked the
> bottle and took a big drink, while he admired the
> magazine’s centerfold.
> “Lord have
> mercy,” the old preacher disgustedly whispered.
> “He’s gonna run for Congress.”
