Today's joke

A man in Topeka, Kansas, decided to write a book about churches
around the country. He started by flying to San Francisco and
worked his way east from there.

Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and
making notes. He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule
wall and was intrigued by a sign which read: "$10,000 a minute."

Seeking out the pastor he asked about the phone and the sign.
The pastor answered that this golden phone is, in fact, a direct
line to Heaven and if he pays the price he can talk directly to

The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way. As he
continued to visit churches in Seattle, Salt Lake, Denver,
Chicago, Milwaukee, and around the United States, he found
more phones, with the same sign, and the same answer from each

Finally, he arrived in the lovely mountains of North Carolina.
Upon entering a church, behold, he saw the usual golden
telephone. But this time, the sign read "Calls: 25 cents."

Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor. "Reverend, I have
been in cities all across the country and in each church I have
found this golden telephone and have been told it is a direct
line to Heaven and that I could talk to God, but, in the other
churches the cost was $10,000 a minute. Your sign reads 25
cents a call. Why?"

The pastor, smiling benignly, replied, "Son, you're in the
South now, and it's a local call."
