Reminds me of Miss Beatrice.

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her 80s and had never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all. One afternoon the pastor arrived and she showed him into her quaint living room. She invited him to be seated while she prepared tea.

As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young pastor noticed a cut glass bowl placed on top of it. The bowl was filled with water and in the water was floating, of all things, a condom!

When Beatrice returned with tea and scones, they began to chat - the pastor trying desperately to stifle his curiosity about the bowl and its floating contents.

But it soon got the better of him and he could no longer resist.

"Miss Beatrice," he said, pointing to the bowl, "I wonder if you could tell me about this?"

"Oh yes," she said. "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the park a couple of months ago and found this little package on the ground. The instructions said to place it on the organ and keep it wet, and that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I haven't had the flu all winter!"
