my uncle spent days looking for his new hat but couldnt find it anywhere. finally, he decided that he would go to church on sunday and during the service, sneak out and grab a hat from the rack at the front door.

on sunday, he went to church and sat at the back. the sermon was about the 10 commandments. he sat through the whole sermon and instead of sneaking out he went to talk to the minister.

he said to the minister "father, i came here today to steal a hat to replace the one i lost. but after hearing your sermon on the 10 commandments, i changed my mind." the minister said "bless you my son. was it when i started to preach thou shall not steal, that changed your heart?" my uncle responded "no, it was the one on adultery. when you started to preach on that, i remembered where i left my hat!"
