    Country Preacher

    An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. 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 footsteps as he entered the house whistling and headed 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 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 whispered. "He's gonna run for Congress."
