Note: A country girl goes to church with a boy. Her mother tells her daughter not to lose her maidenhead. The boy tricks the girl into looking after her maidenhead by "sewing it on." The girl's mother asks her if she lost it, to which the girl responds that he told the lie that he had run out of thread. The punch line is he "had two big balls of thread and a great big needle."
