The Paint Can

A newlywed couple wanted to join a church. The pastor told

Them, "We have special requirements for new

Parishioners. You must abstain from sex for an entire month."

The couple agreed and, after two-and-a-half weeks, returned to

The church. When the Pastor ushered them into

His office, the wife was crying, and the husband obviously was very


"You are back so soon...Is there a problem?" the pastor

Inquired. "We are terribly ashamed to admit that we

Did not manage to abstain from sex for the required month," the young

Man replied sadly.

The pastor asked him what happened.

"Well, the first week was difficult; however, we managed to

Abstain through sheer willpower. The second week

Was terrible, but with the use of prayer, we managed to abstain. The

Third week, however, was unbearable. We tried cold

Showers, prayer, reading from the Bible, or anything to keep our minds

Free of carnal thoughts.

But one afternoon, my wife reached for a can of paint and

Dropped it. When she bent over to pick it up, I

Noticed that she didn't have panties on and I was overcome with lust and

I had my way with her, right then and there,"

Admitted the man, shamefacedly.

"You understand this means you will not be welcome into our

Church," stated the pastor.

"We know," said the young man, hanging his head.

"We're not welcome at HOME DEPOT anymore, either."
