Quick thinking

A Lutheran musician was moonlighting at a Baptist church. The preacher was finishing a rousing sermon against the evils of drink. His voice filling the church, he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

Growing more impassioned, he shouted, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

Finally, he thundered, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river." He sat down.

The Lutheran musician then stood up and announced, "For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365: 'Shall We Gather at the River.'"
