Bert's Joke of The Month

I was walking out of Church when the Pastor grab my arm and said to me, "hey my son you need to be in the Army of the Lord!" I responded, " but Pastor I am in the Army of the Lord!" The Pastor said, "then how come I only see you on Easter and Christmas?" 
I told him, "that's because I am in the Secret Service!"
