NO TEETH

Walking towards the United Nations Building in New York City, a street evangelist was observed who was trying to get the attention of passers-by. He urged those near him to flee from the wrath to come. "I warn you," he roared, "that there will be weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth!"

An old woman in the crowd shouted snidely: "Sir, I have no teeth!"

"Lady," the evangelist retorted, "Teeth will be provided!"
