A rabbi and a minister were sitting together on a plane. The stewardess came up to them and asked, “Would you care for a cocktail?” 

“Sure,” said the rabbi. “Please bring me a Manhattan.” 

“Fine, sir,” said the stewardess. “And you, Reverend?”

“Young lady,” he said, “before I touch strong drink, I’d just as soon commit adultery.” 

“Oh, miss,” said the rabbi. “As long as there’s a choice, I’ll have what he’s having.”
