    Sabbath sex.

    Barry wonders if having sex on the Sabbath is a sin because he is not sure if sex is work or play.

    So Barry first of all goes to a catholic priest and asks for his opinion on this question. After consulting the Bible, the priest says, "My son, after an exhaustive search, I am positive that sex is work and is therefore not permitted on Sundays."

    Barry thinks: "What does a priest know about sex?" So he goes to a protestant minister, who after all is a married man and experienced in this matter. Barry queries the minister and receives the same reply. "Sex is work and therefore not for the Sabbath."

    Not pleased with the replies, Barry then seeks out the ultimate authority: a man of thousands of years’ tradition and knowledge. In other words, he goes to a rabbi.

    The rabbi ponders the question, then states, "My son, sex is definitely play."

    Barry replies, "Thank goodness but rabbi, how can you be so sure when so many others tell me sex is work?"

    The rabbi softly speaks, "If sex were work, my wife would have the maid do it.
