Chuckle of the day

by thoughtfulconservative

Stolen from Mixter’s Mix, proving conservatives and liberals can agree on some things.

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, 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:

– a Bible,
– a silver dollar,
– a bottle of whiskey
– and a Playboy magazine.

‘I’ll just hide behind the door,’ the old preacher said to himself, ‘when he comes home from school this afternoon, 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 businessman, and that would be okay, too. But if he picks up the bottle, he’s going to be a no-good drunkard, and Lord, what a shame that would be. And worst of all, if he picks up that magazine he’s gonna be a skirt-chasin’ bum.’

Since I’m all about links, go here to read the rest 🙂

  1. Or, he could be all of the above, like most preachers (especially Joel Osteen – the anti-Christ’s false-prophet).

  2. Well, according to the joke, by doing them all, he was to become a member of Congress.
