Priests

Cell: 19-08-2013 David Ssali

A priest is on a subway train. A man opposite lowers his newspaper to reveal himself to be a hard-living man who smells of alcohol, has lipstick on his collar and is wearing rumpled clothes in which he has clearly been out all night. With pain in his eyes, the man asks the priest: “Father, what causes dyspepsia, gout and cirrhosis?” The priest replies: “My son, they are caused by a wild lifestyle, gluttony, alcohol abuse, and the company of wicked women.” The man says: “Amazing.” The priest says: “Would you like to be free of these ailments?” The man replies: “I don’t have them. The newspaper says the Pope has.”
