An Outside Joke
A preacher was making his rounds to his parishioners on a bicycle, when
he came upon a little boy trying to sell a lawnmower.
"How much do you want for the mower?" asked the preacher.
"I'm just trying to make enough money to buy a bicycle," said the little boy.
After a moment of consideration, the preacher asked, "Will you take my
bike in trade for it?" The boy said, "You got a deal."
The preacher took the mower and tried to start it. He pulled on the cord a
few times with no response from the mower. The preacher called the little
boy over and said, "I can't get this mower to start."
The little boy said, "That's `cause you have to cuss at it to get it started."
The preacher said, "I'm a minister, and I can't cuss. It's been so long since
I've been `saved' that I don't know if I even remember how to cuss."
The little boy looked at him with a smile and said, "Just keep pulling on
that cord. It'll come back to ya!"
