A pastor, really needing to go to the bathroom, walked into a neighborhood
pub. The place was hopping with music and dancing but every once in a while
the lights would turn off. Each time after the lights would go out the
place would erupt into cheers. However, when the revelers saw the town
pastor, the room went dead silent.

He walked up to the bartender, and asked, "May I please use the restroom?"

The bartender replied, "I really don't think you should."

"Why not?" the pastor asked.

"Well, there is a statue of a naked woman in there, and her most private
part is covered only by a fig leaf."

"Nonsense," said the pastor, "I'll just look the other way."

So the bartender showed the clergyman the door at the top of the stairs,
and he proceeded to the restroom. After a few minutes, he came back out,
and the whole place was hopping with music and dancing again. However, they
did stop just long enough to give the pastor a loud round of applause.

He went to the bartender and said, "Sir, I don't understand. Why did they
applaud for me just because I went to the restroom?"

"Well, now they know you're one of us." said the bartender. "Would you like
a drink?"

"But, I still don't understand," said the puzzled pastor.

"You see," laughed the bartender, "every time the fig leaf is lifted on the
statue, the lights go out in the whole place. Now, how about that drink?"

I laughed out loud at this one!!! I hope no one is offended!!!
