A woman was visiting Salt Lake City, Utah in the latter half of the 18th century, when she saw someone that she thought might be Brigham Young, the leader of the Mormon church.
So she went up to the man and the conversation went something like this:
Woman: “Excuse me sir, are you Brigham Young?”
Brigham Young: “Yes, Madam, I am”.
Woman: “Are you the Brigham Young that is the head of the Mormon church?”
Brigham Young: “Indeed I am Madam”.
Woman: “Are you the Brigham Young that led the Mormons here to Utah?”
Brigham Young: “One and the same Madam”.
Woman: “Are you the Brigham Young that denounced all Christian religions as false except for Mormonism?”
Brigham Young: “That I am Madam”.
By this time, it became apparent to the man that the woman was beginning to lose her temper.
Woman: “Are you the Brigham Young who preaches polygamy?”
Brigham Young: “I am he Madam”.
Now by this time, the man was also starting to get just a little bit frustrated with this woman and her infernal questions and the woman is continuing to get even angrier with every question that he answers.
Woman: “Are you the Brigham Young who has 26 wives?”
Brigham Young: “Madam, yes I am”.
Then, in a furious voice, she shouts out, “You ought to be hung!”
Brigham Young answered, “Yes Madam, I am”.
