java2001e Posted April 19, 2006 Report Share Posted April 19, 2006 A man who smelled like a distillery flopped on a barstool next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half-empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the dishevelled guy turned to the priest and asked, "Say, Father, what causes arthritis?" "Mister, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol, and a contempt for decent society". "Well, I'll be damned," the drunk muttered, returning to his paper. The priest, thinking he’d been too hard, nudged the man and said, "I'm very sorry, I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?". "I don't have it, Father. I was just reading in the paper here that the Pope does". Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
