      An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was
      getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a
      profession.  

           Like many young men, the boy didn’t really know what
      he wanted to do, and he didn’t seem too concerned about it.  

           One day, while the boy was away at school, his father
      decided to try an experiment.  

           He went into the boy’s room and placed on his study
      table four objects:

               a Bible

               a silver dollar

               a bottle of whiskey

               and a Playboy magazine  

           “I’ll just hide behind the door,” the old preacher
      said to himself. “When he comes home from school this
      afternoon,  

           I’ll see which object he picks up.  

           If it’s the Bible, he’s going to be a preacher like me
      and what a blessing that would be!  

           If he picks up the dollar, he’s going to be a
      businessman, and that would be okay, too.  

           But if he picks up the bottle, he’s going to be a
      no-good drunkard, and, Lord, what a shame that would be.  

           And worst of all, if he picks up that magazine he’s
      gonna be a skirt-chasin’ bum.”  

           The old man waited anxiously and soon heard his son’s
      footsteps as he entered the house whistling and headed for
      his room.  

           The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned
      to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table.  

           With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect
      them. Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under
      his arm.  

           He picked up the silver dollar and dropped it into his
      pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink while
      he  

           admired this month’s centerfold.  

           “Lord have mercy,” the old preacher disgustedly
      whispered . . .

           “He’s gonna run for Congress!”
