Three couples went to see a minister each wanting to become members of his church. The minister said they would all have to abstain from sex for two weeks and then come back and tell him how it went. He explained that their acceptance would be based on how willing they were to make small sacrifices for the church…
The first couple was older and retired, the second couple was middle-aged, and the third couple was young and just recently married.
Two weeks passed, and all three couples returned to the church to talk to the Minister about their experiences.
The older, retired couple said they had no problem making the sacrifice for the church. The middle-aged couple said it was challenging the first week, but after that, they too were able to make the sacrifice for the church. The newlyweds said it was going fine, “Until she dropped the can of paint…”
“Can of paint?” asked the minister. “What’s a can of paint got to do with it?”
“Well,” the man explained. “We were ten days in when she dropped the can of paint, and when she bent over to pick it up, I had to have her right there and then. I’m sorry, but unfortunately, lust won out…”
The minister just shook his head, and in a loud authoritative voice, he decreed, “You’re NOT welcome in my church, now or ever!”
“I totally understand,” the man said without argument. “And as luck would have it, we’re no longer welcome in Home Depot either…”
