Pulpit Humor

There was this Lutheran minister who served a predominately German congregation for years.  Pastor Heinz enjoyed telling Norwegian jokes from the pulpit, much to the delight of his flock.

One year, Heinz was transferred to a predominately Norwegian congregation and the first Sunday, he told a typical joke from the pulpit.  After the service a deacon approached and said that perhaps he should reconsider his choice of humor as some of the people may be offended.  Pastor Heinz apologized, saying he would break this habit.

One day, while reading his Bible, Heinz came across a story of the Amalekites and had an idea.  He approached the Deacon and asked if he could tell an Amalekite joke.

The Deacon said "I suppose that would be okay, I don't think we have any Amalekites in the congregation."

Next Sunday, Pastor Heinz was getting into his sermon and said, " This reminds me of a funny story, seems there were these 2 Amalekites, Sven and Ole..."
