“Despite removing all the stains, I still lost my job as a church window cleaner”

Many churches have stained windows. “I was a rubbish church window cleaner. I got rid of all the stains” was printed in The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book (2010) by English writer, actor, comedian and presenter Tim Vine.

“Despite removing all the stains, I still lost my job as a church window cleaner” was posted on Twitter by David Clarke (and others) on January 11, 2012, and on Reddit—Oneliners on August 7, 2012.
