A six-year-old girl and her four-year-old brother were sitting together in church. The little boy laughed, sang and talked out loud. Finally, the little girl had had enough. "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church." "Why? Who's going to stop me?" the little boy asked. His sister pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two men standing by the door? They're hushers."
