The New Preacher
One Sunday, there was a strange pastor, a very handsome man, in the pulpit, preaching away quite merrily.
One of the women, quite deaf, had to turn her hearing aid up fully. As the old women were returning home, the pros and cons of the new pastor was their main subject of conversation.
"I thought he was lovely", said one.
"He was, rather, wasn't he" said the other?
"He was very loud, wasn't he"?
"Eh" said the other, "what cloud"?
"I said he was very loud".
"I said, he was very loud", shouted the other. "Bawls like a bull".
"Has he" said the first. "I never noticed, the pulpit was in the way".
