Promoting God via Margarine

Had to be one of the least enthusiastic product endorsements ever.

A country parson is going on British television with a commercial for God and margarine. ..
The Rev. Mr. Stephens said he took the job only on condition he could write his own script. He starts by saying he is not really a margarine man because it reminds him of his years in the army. Then he adds: "However, we ate it. Our system probably needed it. The body needs fat like the soul needs God."
The commercial was filmed in his study.

"I am not an exercise man because that reminds me of the army. I didn't like it. However, we did it. Our system needs it. The body needs exercise like the soul needs God. I have always been averse to exercise, but now, I really do like it."

I'm not averse to margarine either, but I do have a philosophy on its use: butter goes into cooking, margarine on your toast.
