Jack and Max are walking home from church. Jack wonders whether it would be all right to smoke while praying.
Max replies, “Why don’t you ask the pastor?”
So Jack goes up to the pastor and asks, “Pastor, may I smoke while I pray?”
The pastor replies, “No, you may not! That shows utter disrespect for God.”
Jack goes back to his friend and tells him what the good pastor told him.
Max says, “I’m not surprised. You asked the wrong question. Let me try.”
And so Max goes up to the pastor and asks, “Pastor, may I pray while I smoke?”
To which the pastor eagerly replies, “By all means, my son. By all means. You can always pray whenever you want to.”
