Three couples are interested in joining a religious society. After spending months studying the texts and discussing theology, their final task is to be celibate for one month.

When the month is up, they meet with their sponsor and he asks if they were able to complete the task.

The first couple had no problems with the task. The second couple admit they were tempted, but they managed not to give in to temptation.

The third couple are newly-weds, and they look quite embarrassed.

“Well,” says the husband, “we were painting our house, and when my wife bent over to pick up a can of paint, I just couldn’t restrain myself.”

Their sponsor looks disappointed. “I’m sorry, but you can’t join our society if you failed this task.”

The husband sighs. “I know. We’re not welcome at Bunnings anymore, either.”
