The Nutty Preacher

A preacher was visiting an elderly woman from his congregation. As he sat on the couch he noticed a bowl of peanuts on the coffee table.

“Mind if I have a few?” he asked.

“No, not at all,” the woman replied.

They chatted for an hour and as the preacher stood to leave, he realized that instead of having eaten just a few peanuts, he had nearly emptied the bowl.

“I’m very sorry for having eaten all of your peanuts, I really meant to eat just a few.”

“Oh, that’s all right,” the old woman replied. “Ever since I lost my teeth, all I can do is suck the chocolate off them.”
