Pick Three Hymns

Before taking the offering the pastor announced that the church had several unexpected expenses in the last month.  She encouraged everyone to make a significant offering that morning, and as extra incentive she said that whoever gave the most that day would get to pick three hymns. 

When the ushers brought the offering forward there was a thousand dollar bill on the top of the plate.  The pastor asked the donor to please come forward.  After a brief pause an older woman came forward absolutely beaming.   

The pastor thanked her profusely and then reminded her that she was entitled to pick three hymns. 

Without hesitation she pointed at three handsome young men and said, "I pick him, and him, and him."
