The Old Priest Who Got Sick Of All The People.

There’s this old priest who got sick of all the people in his parish who kept confessing their secrets.

One Sunday, in the pulpit, he said,

“If I hear one more person confess, I ll quit!”

Well, everyone liked him, so they came up with a code word.

Someone who had committed their secret would say they had “fallen.”

This seemed to satisfy the old priest and things went well until the priest died at a ripe old age.

About a week after the new priest arrived, he visited the mayor of the town and5  seemed very concerned.

The priest said,

“You have to do something about the sidewalks in town. When people come into the confessional, they keep talking about having fallen.”

The mayor started to laugh, realizing that no one had told the new priest about the code word.

Before the mayor could explain, the priest shook an accusing finger at the mayor and said,

“I don’t know what you re laughing about, your wife fell three times this week.”
