What Religion is Your Bra?

There's a joke doing the grounds which I found quite funny -
A man walked into the lingerie department of a large department store and shyly approached the woman behind the counter and said, 'I'd like to buy a brassiere for my wife.'
'What type of bra?' asked the clerk.
'Type?' inquires the man, 'There's more than one type?'
'Look around,' said the saleslady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color and material imaginable.' She continued: "But actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from .'
Relieved, the man asked about the types of bras.
The saleslady replied: 'There are the Catholic, the Salvation Army, the Presbyterian, and the Baptist types. Which one would you prefer?'
Now totally befuddled, the man asked what was the difference between them.
The saleslady responded, 'It is all really quite simple. The Catholic bra supports the masses; the Salvation Army bra lifts the fallen; the Presbyterian bra keeps them staunch and upright; and the Baptist bra makes mountains out of mole hills.'
But this classification ignores my favourite - the agnostic bra. You see a woman striding confidently down the street, and you do a bit of a double take and ask yourself: "Is she wearing a bra? Or not?" And however long you are able to discreetly (of course) check her out, you have to admit, you just don't know.
