A minister was planning a wedding at the close of the Sunday morning
service. After the benediction he had planned to call the couple down
to be married for a brief ceremony before the congregation. For the
life of him, he couldn't think of the
names of those who were to be married. "Will those wanting to get
married please come to the front?" he requested.
Immediately, nine single ladies, three widows, four widowers, and six
single men stepped to the front.
