As he sits on the couch he notices a large bowl of peanuts on the coffee table. "Mind if I have a few" he asks.
"No, not at all" the woman replied.
They chat for an hour and as the preacher stands to leave, he realizes that instead of eating just a few peanuts, he emptied most of the bowl.
"I'm terribly sorry for eating all your peanuts, I really just meant to eat a few."
"Oh that's all right" the woman says.
"Ever since I lost my teeth all I can do is suck the chocolate off them."

A visitor to San Francisco..
...is standing on a street corner waiting for a bus when he notices a blind man and his guide dog.
The dog leads the man into the street, where he is brushed by an oncoming car.
The man is knocked down, and he rather gingerly gets back up.
He calls the guide dog over, reaches into his pocket, pulls out a canine treat, and gives it to the dog.
The visitor, upon seeing all this, walks over to the blind man and says, "That's amazing! Your guide dog led you into a busy street where you were nearly run over by a car, and yet you're giving the dog a treat.
You must really love that dog."
The blind man turns to the visitor and says, "No, I'm gonna kick that dogs butt -- I'm just trying to find out which end is which."
