A Great Winston Churchill Story

Winston Churchill once attended a party with the Methodist bishop of Melbourne, the foremost
prohibitionist of his day. A waitress offered Churchill a drink, which he gratefully accepted. Not
knowing who he was, she then offered one to the bishop. "I would sooner commit adultery than touch a drink," the bishop responded. Churchill quickly put his drink back on the tray and said to the waitress, "I didn't know there was a choice."
