A minister was walking along the corridor of the parochial school near the preschool wing when a group of little ones were trotting by on the way to the cafeteria. One little lad of about three or four stopped and looked at him in his clerical clothes and asked, “Why do you dress funny?”
He told him he was a minister and this is the uniform ministers wear.
Then the boy pointed to the minister’s plastic collar tab and asked, “Do you have an owie?”
The minister was perplexed till he realized that to him the collar tab looked like a band aid. So the minister took it out and handed it to the boy to show him.
On the back of the tab are raised letters giving the name of the manufacturer. The little guy felt the letters, and the minister asked, “Do you know what those words say?”
“Yes, I do,” said the lad who was not old enough to read.
Peering intently at the letters he said, “Kills ticks and fleas up to six months.”
