The Priest and the Bum
Monday, April 23, 2012
A drunk that smelled like a brewery got on a subway one day. He sat down next to a priest. The drunk's shirt was stained, his face was full of bright red lipstick, and he had a half empty bottle of wine sticking out of his pocket.
He opened his newspaper and started reading. A couple of minutes later he asked the priest, "Father what causes arthritis"?
"Mister, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap wicked women, too much alcohol and contempt for your fellow man."
"Geez, I'll be darned," uttered the drunk and returned to reading his paper.
The priest, thinking about what he said turned to the man and apologized.
"I'm sorry son, I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?"
"I don't, father. I was just reading in the paper that the Pope has arthritis.. "
