Phrasing it right

Sam and Morris are walking to services and Sam asks, "I wonder whether it would be all right to smoke while praying?"

"Why don't you ask the rabbi?" says Morris.

Sam sees Rabbi Golden and asks, "Rabbi, is it permissable for me to smoke while I pray?"

"No, you may not. That's utter disrespect to our religion and traditions!" quickly answers the rabbi.

Sam goes back to his friend and tells him what the good Rabbi told him.

"I'm not surprised. You asked the wrong question.Let me try."

Morris goes over to the rabbi and asks, "Rabbi, will it be ok if I pray while I smoke?"

To which Rabbi Golden eagerly replies, "By all means, my good man. By all means."
