All this talk about the Church and contraception makes me recall the well-worn joke:

Three couples--an elderly couple, a middle-aged couple and a young newlywed couple--wanted to join a Catholic church. The priest says, "We have special requirements for new parishioners. You must abstain from having sex for two weeks."

The couples agreed and came back at the end of two weeks.

The priest goes up to the elderly couple and asks, "Were you able to abstain from sex for the two weeks?"

The old man replies, "No problem at all, Pastor."

"Congratulations! Welcome to the church!" said the priest.

The priest goes to the middle-aged couple and asks, "Well, were you able to abstain from sex for the two weeks?"

The man replied, "The first week was not too bad. The second week I had to sleep on the couch for a couple of nights but, yes we made it."

"Congratulations! Welcome to the church," said the priest.

The priest then goes to the newlywed couple and asks, "Well, were you able to abstain from sex for two weeks?"

"Well, Father, we were not able to go without sex for the two weeks," the young man replied.

"What Happened?" inquired the priest.

"My wife was reaching for a light bulb on the top shelf and dropped it. When she bent over to pick it up, I couldn't help myself and we had sex right there on the floor."

The priest said, "Well, then you're not welcome in this Catholic church."

"That's OK," said the young man, "We're not welcome at the supermarket anymore either."

5. not quite

he got reubuke by Ford for it, but the firing came from another joke, apparently cruder and more racist. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/04/washington/04butz.html

At least if the NY Times can be trusted for accuracy. A shaky assumption, I know. They are probably still printing articles about how Al Gore said he invented the internet and discovered Love Canal and was the basis for Love Story. But it's too far in the past for me to remember.
