Louis was seated next to a rather staunch minister on a flight to Texas. After the plane was airborne, drink orders were taken.
“I’ll have a whiskey and soda,” requested Louis, and it was promptly brought forth and placed before him.
Rather predictably, the minister looked upon the man’s drink with scorn. He viewed alcohol as being the drink of the devil. Nevertheless, the flight attendant then asked him if he would like a drink.
The minister replied in disgust, “I’d rather be savagely raped by brazen whores than let liquor touch my lips.”
Just as he was about to take a sip, Louis handed his drink back to the attendant and said, “Me too. I didn’t know we had a choice.”
