The Clergy  

A young clergyman, fresh out of seminary, thought it would help him better understand the fears and temptations his future congregations faced if he first took a job as a policeman for several months. He passed the physical examination; then came the oral exam to test his ability to act quickly and wisely in an emergency. 

Among other questions he was asked, "What would you do to disperse a frenzied crowd?" 

He thought for a moment and then said, "I would take up a collection."
