| “Now as I said two weeks ago”, the minister said to the three couples wanting to join his rather strict church, “the final requirement was for you to go two weeks without sex, to show you are serious about joining. He then asked the elderly couple, “Were you able to abstain for 2 weeks?”
“Two weeks? Try two decades” said the husband.
“Great, then you can join our church. And how about you two?” The minister asked a middle aged couple.
“Yes, we made it,” the wife said. “Although the second week my husband had to sleep on the couch”.
“Wonderful” said the minister. “Welcome to our church. And how about you two?” he asked the newly weds. “Were you able to abstain for two weeks?”
“Well”, said the husband, “We did pretty good at first. But a couple of hours after we met with you my wife dropped a light bulb, and when she bent down to pick it up, I just couldn’t resist.”
“I’m sorry. But unfortunately that means you aren’t welcome in our church”.
“That’s okay” said the husband. “We aren’t welcome back to the hardware store either.”
