A minister, a priest and a rabbi went for a hike one day. It was very hot. They were sweating and exhausted when they came upon a small lake.
Since it was fairly secluded, they took off all their clothes and jumped in
the water. Feeling refreshed, the trio decided to pick a few berries while
enjoying their "freedom."
As they were crossing an open area, who should come along but a group of
ladies from town.
Unable to get to their clothes in time, the minister and the
priest covered their privates and the rabbi covered his face while they ran for
After the ladies left and the men got their clothes back on, the minister and
the priest asked the rabbi why he covered his face rather than his privates.
The rabbi replied, "I don't know about you, but in MY congregation, it's my
face they would recognize."
