The missionaries were harshly rejected by the lady of the house who slammed the door in their faces. To her consternation, the door did not close completely but swung back towards her.
"Get your foot out of my door!" she shouted angrily.
"But, madam ... " the senior companion began, but she didn't listen and she slammed the door even harder. It swung back towards her again.
Furiously, she screamed "Get your Mormon foot out of my door!"
"But, madam .... " he began again.
"Don't 'but madam,' me!" she screamed, going purple, and slamming the door again, this time with both hands, only to see it swing back at her a third time.
"Aaaaaargggghhhhhhhh!" she screamed hysterically.
The junior companion stepped forward and said softly through the door opening, "Madam, you will be able to shut the door if you first remove your cat!"
Thanks to Ronnie Bray for submitting this missionary joke!
