Santa and Banta are walking from religious service. Banta wonders whether it would be all right to smoke while praying.
Santa replies, "Why don't you ask the Priest?"
So Banta goes up to the Priest and asks, "Father, may I smoke while I pray ?"
The Priest replies, "No, my son, you may not! That's utter disrespect to our religion."
banta goes back to his friend and tells him what the good Priest told him.
Santa says, "I'm not surprised. You asked the wrong question. Let me try."
And so Santa goes up to the Priest and asks, "Father, may I pray while I smoke ?"
To which the Priest eagerly replies, "By all means, my son. By all means. You can always pray whenever you want to."
