Close but not quite...

Readers may recall the story about Mark Twain's hero, Tom Sawyer, and Sunday school. The kid who memorized the most Bible verses each week received a red ribbon. Whoever had the most red ribbons at the end of the year would get special recognition from the Bishop.

Of course, Tom memorized no verses but cheated his classmates out of their ribbons, so he had the most when the Bishop arrived. Tom could answer none of the Bishop's questions. Finally, in exasperation, the Bishop asked, "Can you name any two of apostles?" To which Tom blurted out, "David and Goliath!"
