Soap And Water

A minister was asked to dinner by one of his parishioners, whom he knew was an unkempt housekeeper. When he sat down at the table, he noticed that the dishes were the dirtiest that he had ever seen in his life.

“Were these dishes EVER washed?” he asked his hostess, running his fingers over the grit and grime.

“She replied, “They’re as clean as soap and water could get them.”

He felt quite apprehensive, but not wanting to offend, blessed the food anyway and started eating. It was really delicious, and he said so, despite the dirty dishes.

When dinner was over, the hostess took the dishes outside and yelled, “Here, Soap! Here, Water!”
