 A minister told his congregation, "Next week I plan to preach about the
 sin of lying.  To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read
 Mark 17."
 The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the
minister  asked for a show of hands.  He wanted to know how
many had read Mark 17. Every hand went up.
 The minister smiled and said, "Mark has only sixteen chapters.  Now, on
 to my sermon about the sin of lying."
