Peanuts for the Pastor

02Mar99


A priest went on his weekly calls by first visiting an elderly lady. As he sat on the couch talking to her, he noticed a bowl of peanuts on the table right in front of him. "Do you mind if I take a few peanuts?" he asked the lady.

"Why no Pastor. Go ahead and help yourself."

They had a nice chat and after about an hour, when he got up to leave, he noticed that he had eaten almost all of the peanuts in the bowl.

He said: "I apologize; I only meant to eat a few".

To which she replied: "Oh, don't worry about it, ever since I lost my teeth, all I can do is suck the chocolate off of them."
