    Truth is hidden in a joke

    An old-time southern, hell fire & brimstone country preacher had a
    teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought
    to choosing a profession.

    Like many young men, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do,
    and he didn't seem too concerned about it.

    One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an
    experiment. He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table
    four objects:

    - a Bible,

    - a silver dollar,

    - a bottle of whisky and

    - a Playboy magazine

    "I'll just hide behind the door," the old preacher said to himself,
    "when he comes home from school this afternoon, I'll see which object
    he picks up.

    If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me, and what a
    blessing that would be!

    If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a businessman, and that
    would be okay, too.

    But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good, low down
    drunkard, and, Lord, help me.... what a shame that would be.

    And worst of all..... if he picks up that magazine he's gonna be a
    skirt-chasin', no good bum."

    The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's footsteps as he
    entered the house whistling and headed for his room. The boy tossed his
    books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the
    objects on the table. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to
    inspect them.

    Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked
    up the silver dollar and dropped it into his pocket. He uncorked the
    bottle and took a big drink while he admired this month's Centerfold.

    "Lord have mercy," the old preacher disgustedly whispered,
    "he's gonna be a Congressman!"

    I think the same joke was posted here before. The punchline was, and I believe more accurate, "Good Lord, he's gonna be a cop."
