-----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. Like many young men his
age, 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.1. A Bible.2. A silver dollar.3. A bottle of
whisky.4. And 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 L ord, 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 foot-steps 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 this month's
centerfold.'Lord have mercy,' the old preacher disgustedly whispered.
'He's gonna run for Congress.'
