SUNDAY SMILE

An old man bursts into a priest's study and says, “I’ve got to tell you this. I'm 50 years old and for the thirty years I've been married I never cheated on my wife. Then this sweet thing moved in next door and since then.... wow!" "How long has it been since your last Confession?" asks the priest. "I've never been to Confession. I'm Jewish" "Then why are you telling me this?" "I'm telling everyone!"
