man flops down on a subway seat next to a priest. The man's tie is stained,
his face is smeared with red lipstick, and a half-empty bottle of gin
is sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opens a newspaper and begins
After a few minutes the guy turns to the priest and asks, "Say, Father,
what causes arthritis?"
"Loose living; cheap, wicked woman; too much alcohol; and contempt for
your fellow man," answers the priest.
"I'll be damned," the drunk mutters, returning to his paper.
The priest, thinking about what he said, nudges the man and apologizes.
"I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to be so harsh. How long have you had
"Oh, I don't have it, Father. It says here that the Pope does."
Miss Bea was in her eighties, and much admired
for her sweetness and kindness to all. The pastor came to call on her
one afternoon early in the spring, and she welcomed him into her Victorian
parlour. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared a little
As he sat facing her old pump organ, the young minister noticed a cut-glas
bowl sitting on top of it, filled with water. In the water floated,
of all things, a condom. Imagine his shock and surprise. Imagine his
curiosity! Surely Miss Bea had flipped or something! But he certainly
couldn't mention the strange sight in her parlour.
When she returned with tea and cookies, they began to chat. The pastor
tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange
floater, but soon it got the better of him, and he could resist no longer.
"Miss Bea", he said, gesturing toward the bowl, " I wonder if you would
tell me about this"
"Oh, yes", she replied, " Isn't it wonderful? I was walking downtown
last fall and I found this little package. It said to put it on the
organ and keep it wet, and it would prevent disease. And you know, I

man was walking in the mountains just enjoying the scenery when he stepped
too close to the edge of the mountain and started to fall. In desperation
he reached out and grabbed a limb of a gnarly old tree hanging onto
the side of the cliff. Full of fear he assessed his situation. He was
about 100 feet down a shear cliff and about 900 feet from the floor
of the canyon below. If he should slip again he'd plummet to his death.
Full of fear, he cries out, "Help me!" But there was no answer. Again
and again he cried out but to no avail.
Finally he yelled, "Is anybody up there? "
A deep voice replied, "Yes, I'm up here."
"Who is it?"
"It's the Lord"
"Can you help me?"
"Yes, I can help."
Looking around the man became full of panic. "What?"
"Let go. I will catch you."
"Uh... Is there anybody else up there?"
A nun dies and goes to heaven. St. Peter says
to her, "I'm sure you've lead a virtuous life, Sister, but before I
can let you into heaven, you must answer one question. What," asks St.
Peter,"were Eve's first words when she saw Adam?"
"Boy," says the nun, "that's a hard one."
"That's right!" says St. Peter, and the pearly gates open wide
were these two priests who rode bikes to church every Sunday. Well one
day one of the priests showed up to work without his bike. The other
priest asked where his bike was so the first priest said, "I don't know,
but I think it got stolen!"
The other priest said, "Well what you do is read off the Ten Commandments,
and when you get to "Thou shall not steal" someone will confess to the
The next time the two saw each other the priest had his bicycle back.
"I see you got your bike back! Did you do what I said?" the one priest
The other said, "Well kind of, when I was reading the commandments and
I got to Thou Shall Not Commit Adultery, I seemed to remember where
I had left it."
middle-aged woman has a heart attack and is taken to the hospital. While
on the operating table she has a near-death experience. During that
experience she sees God and asks if this is it. God says no and explains
that she has another 30-40 years to live.
Upon her recovery she decides to just stay in the hospital and have
a face-lift, liposuction, breast augmentation, and a tummy tuck. She
even has someone come in and change her hair colour. She figures that
