One day Mrs Smith went to have a talk with the minister at the local church.
"Reverend," she said, "I have a problem, my husband keeps falling asleep during your sermons. It's very embarrassing. What should I do?"
"I have an idea," said the minister. "Take this hat pin with you. I will be able to tell when Mr Smith is sleeping, and I will motion to you at specific times.
When I motion, you give him a good poke in the leg."
In the church the following Sunday, Mr Smith dozed off.
Noticing this, the preacher put his plan to work.
"And who made the ultimate sacrifice you?" he said, nodding to Mrs Smith.
"Jesus!" Smith cried as his wife jabbed him in the leg with the hat pin.
"Yes, you are right, Mr Smith," said the minister.
Soon, Mr Smith nodded off again.
Again, the minister noticed. "Who is your redeemer?" he asked the congregation, motioning towards Mrs Smith.
"God!" Mr Smith cried out as he was stuck again with the hat pin
"Right again," said the minister, smiling.
Before long, Mr Smith again winked off.
However, this time the minister did not notice. As he picked up the tempo of his sermon, he made a few motions that Mrs Smith mistook as signals to bayonet her husband with the hat pin again.
Then the minister asked, "And what did Eve say to Adam after she bore him his 99th son?"
Mrs Smith, once again poked her husband, who yelled, "You stick that damned
thing in me one more time and I'll break it in half and shove it up your ass!"
