Mormons Like Big Boobs

The Reader's Digest, January 2000, p. 120.

During our church service one Sunday, a parishioner was speaking about an emotionally charged topic and had trouble controlling her tears. Finishing her remarks, she told the congregation, "I apologize for crying so much. I'm usually not such a big boob."

The bishop rose to close the session and remarked, "That's okay. We like big boobs." -- Contributed by L.S.

By C. L. Beck

When touched by the Spirit, people often find it difficult to contain their emotions as they bear witness of the truthfulness of the gospel. One fast meeting, a sister stood to bear her testimony. Holding a Kleenex to damp eyes and struggling with her feelings, she said, "I don't do this very often because I'm such a big boob."

After she sat down, a member of the bishopric stepped to the pulpit. Offering what he thought was consolation, he said, "That's okay; we like big boobs."
