funny religoin catholic confession priest joke short story

"Bless me Father, for I have sinned."

"Is that you, Joey Pagano?" asked the priest.

"Yes, Father, it is," replied the boy. "I have been with a loose girl."

"And who was the girl you were with?"

"I can't tell you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation."

"Well, Joey," said the priest. "I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later, so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?"

"I cannot say."

"Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?"

"I'll never tell."

"Was it Nina Capelli?"

"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."

"Was it Cathy Piriano?"

"My lips are sealed Father."

"Well then, was it Rosa DiAngelo?"

"Please, Father, I cannot tell you."

The priest sighed in frustration. "You're very tight lipped - and I admire that - but you've sinned and have to atone. I'm afraid you cannot be an altar boy now for four months. Now go and behave yourself."

The boy walked back to his pew, and his friend Franco slid over and whispered, "What'd you get?"

"Four month's vacation, and five excellent leads."
