One for The Tuscan Boys


"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl"

The priest asks, 'Is that you, little Joey Pagano?'

"Yes, Father, it is."

'And who was the girl you were with?'

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

'Well, Joey, 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"

'Was it Rosa Di Angelo, then?'

"Please, Father, I cannot tell you"

The priest sighs in frustration. 'You're very tight lipped, Joey Pagano, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself.'

Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over
and whispers, 'What'd you get?'

"4 months holiday and five good leads."

Brilliant. I will pass this sage advice on to the urchins, probably in 5 years time.

Am likely to be booking a week in Midhurst beginning of April, if you're around.

Ha Ha ! That`s very funny Idle.

Totally off subject, I for one would be delighted if you did a post about your Military Career. I love the 'Military' particularly the pomp and ceremony that is attached to it. I still feel very proud to be British whenever I see our troops marching and fighting wars on our behalf, or I should say, fighting wars on behalf of our vainglorious politicians.

Best joke I have heard in along time (+:
Reminds me, many years ago I had a "prescence" in my house and I dont mean the ex.
So I went to see a priest, we had a good long chat about my life,then his and women,e specially some of the things some of the young girls in his flock confessed to
"you wouldnt believe it Nick, cheap they are just cheap"
I sat there stoney faced, nodding and wondering if I knew any of them.
He was a thoroughly decent man who had worked with children who had been abused( not by him) including by priests, he told me it drove him into a state of despair and he had to stop as it was destroying him having to listen to their ordeals particularly those at the hands of his brother priests.
Anyway, he helped me with my problem, and the strange happenings in my house stopped.

I could easily be a catholic priest, nubile 18 year old in the confessional, terrible tales of loose living, The Tuscan:- "you have really made me feel down, low, nay, deflated, Rebecca. Now, to remedy this situation you need to work those lovely young lungs to reinflate me, and here's how *loosens large knot in wooden partition*
