Ill-Gotten Gain

Today is Sunday and Pa has lingered after services to have a word with the preacher.

"I've got a question that has weighed on my mind for some time now," he began.

"Please go on," said the preacher

"Is it proper to profit from the mistakes of another?" Pa inquired somewhat hesitantly.

"Definitely not," was the answer.

"Are you absolutely certain?"

"Yes, Pa, that's definite."

"Okay. In that case, I wonder if you'd mind returning the $10 I paid to the congregation when I was married in this church?"
