Jack says to his friend Joe, “I’m sleeping with the minister’s wife. Can you do me a big favour and keep him busy in church for an hour after service for me?”
Joe doesn’t like it, but being a friend, he agrees.
After the service, Joe starts talking to the minister, asking him all sorts of stupid questions to keep him occupied.
Finally the minister gets annoyed and asks Joe what he’s really up to.
Joe, feeling guilty, finally confesses.
“My friend is sleeping with your wife right now, so he asked me to distract you.”
The minister thinks for a minute, smiles, puts a brotherly hand on Joe’s shoulder and says “If I were you, I’d hurry home right now. My wife died a year ago.”
