Pastors and peanuts

June 27th, 2009

I came across this one today as I was reading about Pastors and home visitation. As I haven’t put anything in my “for fun” category for a while I thought I would put this in…

“The pastor went to call on one of the elderly widows of the church. While visiting with her, he noticed a bowl of shelled peanuts on the coffee table. During the conversation he began nibbling on them and soon the bowl was empty. He then apologized to the woman for eating all of her peanuts.

She replied, “That’s OK, Reverend. It’s no bother. You see, three weeks ago I had all my teeth pulled. Since that time, I’ve just been sucking the chocolate off the peanuts and putting them in that bowl.”
