A salesman at the next table noticed how much the pastor was enjoying his meal.
“Say, preacher,” said the salesman, “you seem to be really enjoying that steak.”
“Why, yes, this is a very good steak,” replied the minister, “but only because I added this special sauce on top.”
“Could I give it a try?” asked the salesman. “Of course,” replied the minister, passing him the bottle. The salesman immediately applied a generous amount to his meal and took a bite.
“Sorry to bother you again, pastor, but I have a question,” said the salesman. “In your pulpit do you often preach about hell?”
“Yes, I do,” replied the pastor. “Why do you ask?” The salesman replied, “Well, you’re the first pastor I’ve ever met who carried samples of it with him.”
