    Old Mrs. Wilson loved to hear a fiery sermon. She would sconce her comfortable
    bulk in the pew, rock back and forth in time to the minister's cadences, take a
    dip of snuff and cry "A-a-a-men," at every piece of ministerial denunciation.

    When the minister spoke harshly of sex, drinking, smoking, and drug-taking,
    she approved heartily, taking snuff at each item and emitting her rolling "A- a-
    a-men."

    Finally the minister began, "And now let me talk about another
    vicious habit that, fortunately, is going increasingly out of fashion. I refer
    to the deplorable practice of snuff-dipping..."

    Whereupon Mrs. Wilson sat bolt upright and muttered under her breath,
    "Wouldn't you know? He's stopped preaching' and commenced to meddling'!"
