A male pastor walked into a neighbourhood pub to use the
The place was hopping with music and dancing, until
As the room quieted down he walked up to the bartender,
and asked : " May I please use the toilet ? "

" Why not ? " the pastor asked.
" I really need to use the toilet ! "
" Well, I don't think you should. There is a statue of a
woman in there -- and she's only covered by a fig leaf ! "
" Nonsense, " said the pastor, " I'll look the other way ! "
So, the bartender showed the clergyman the door at the

After a few minutes, he came back out, and the whole

" You see, " laughed the bartender, " every time the fig
