Saluting the Flag

There was once a retired military man who was very patriotic.  He had a tall flag in his front yard back when it wasn't a common thing to do.  One day he talked with a Jehovah Witness and got very upset when he found out the Jehovah Witnesses refused to serve in the armed services, to say the pledge of allegiance, or to salute the flag.

He decided that he would not talk to any more Jehovah Witnesses unless they were willing to salute the flag and say the pledge of allegiance.  One day he was sitting in his living room looking out the window when he saw a Jehovah Witness with her little girl walking towards his front door.  When she knocked at the door he was ready for her.

He opened the door and before she could open her mouth he told her, "I'm not going to talk with you or listen to what you say unless you turn, face that flag in my front yard, salute it and say the pledge of allegiance!"  The woman looked very confused, but she finally turned, faced the flag, saluted, and said the pledge of allegiance.

The retired military man was just shocked by what he witnessed.  He turned to the lady and said, "You know, you're the first Jehovah's Witness I have ever met who would salute the flag and say the pledge of allegiance!"  The woman, with a confused look on her face, replied, "Jehovah's Witness?  I'm the Avon Lady!"
