Better than a Flu Shot !

Miss Beatrice,
The church organist,
Was in her eighties
And had never been married.
She was admired for her sweetness
And kindness to all.
One afternoon the pastor
Came to call on her and she showed
him into her quaint sitting room.
She invited him to have a
seat while she prepared tea.
As he sat facing her
old Hammond organ ,
The young minister
Noticed a cute glass bowl
Sitting on top of it.
The bowl was filled
With water, and in the water Floated,
of all things, a condom!

When she returned
With tea and scones,
They began to chat.
The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity
About the bowl of water and its
strange floater, but soon it got the
better of him and he could no longer resist.
' M iss Beatrice', he said,
'I wonder if you would tell me about this?'
Pointing to the bowl.
'Oh, yes,' she replied, 'Isn't it wonderful?
I was walking through
The Park a few months ago
And I found this little package On the ground.
The directions said
To place it on the organ,
Keep it wet and that it would prevent
the spread of disease.
Do you know I haven't had the flu All winter.'
