A man is walking into a pub and has to pass a woman dressed in a Salvation Army uniform who is standing just outside the door.

"Give up the demon drink" she advises him, "It will lead you down the path to damnation".

Instead of ignoring her, he decides to confront her; "How can you say that if you never tried it? Come in with me and I'll buy you a drink. Then you can decide if you still think it's wrong."

"Oh, I couldn't possibly go into a public house" she replied.

"Alright then" he says, "I'll bring a drink out to you."

Realising that he had a valid argument, she reluctantly agrees but adds "As I'm wearing my uniform, do you think I could have it in a paper cup, please?"

He goes into the pub and straight up to the bar to order the drinks. "A pint of bitter please and, I know this might sound unusual, a gin and tonic in a paper cup."

The barman sighs and says "Is that bloody Salvationist outside again?"
