PostSubject: Catholic Last Rites   Fri Jun 18, 2010 12:33 am

A bus on a busy street struck a Catholic man.
He was lying near death on the sidewalk as a crowd gathered.
"A priest. Somebody get me a priest!" the man gasped.
Long seconds dragged on but no one stepped out of the crowd.

A policeman checked the crowd and finally yelled, "A PRIEST, PLEASE! Isn't there a priest in this crowd to give this man his last rites?"
Finally, out of the crowd stepped a little old Jewish man in his 80s.

"Mr. Policeman," said the man, "I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Christian. But for 50 years now, I'm living behind the Catholic Church on Second Avenue , and every night I'm overhearing their services. I can recall a lot of it, and maybe I can be of some comfort to this poor man."

The policeman agreed, and cleared the crowd so the man could get through to where the injured man lay.

The old Jewish man knelt down, leaned over the man and said in a solemn voice:

Looks like no one has the same sense of humor that I do-- being raised a Catholic and knowing just how many and often they have Bingo games--- thought this was pretty funny...
Sorry if no one else did..

Hi Winfrey.

Don't fret, these forums aren't as busy as you may think they are.

I, for one, have only just got home from work, so I didn't see your post until now. Others may be in a similar situation in the U.S..

For what it's worth, I laughed when I read it.

Keep 'em coming!

Gelert. lol!

Hi winfrey,
I just now got around to checking out this thread and I didn't even get the joke until you explained it.
Actually, with that title, I thought it was going to be about someone here who had died and I almost didn't read it, would have been too sad, but curiosity finally won out. Now I'm happy to find out it was all just a joke. Now I can laugh.
