The lawn mower

The lawn mower

A preacher was making his rounds to his parishioners on a
bicycle, when he came upon a Delbert trying to sell a lawn
“How much do you want for the mower?” asked the preacher.
“I just want enough money to go out and buy my kid a bicycle,”
said Delbert.
After a moment of consideration, the preacher asked, “Will
you take my bike in trade for it?”
Delbert said, “Mister, you’ve got yourself a deal.”
The preacher took the mower and tried to start it.  He pulled
and pulled on the rope until he was dripping with sweat but
the mower refuse to start.
The preacher called Delbert over and said, “I can’t get
this mower to start.”
Delbert said, “That’s because you have to cuss at it to
get it started.”
The preacher said, “I’m a man of the church and I can’t cuss.
It’s been so long since I’ve been saved that I don’t even
remember how to cuss.”
Delbert looked at him happily and said,
“Just keep pulling on that rope. It’ll come back to ya.”
