This is the Canonical List of Religious Humor.  Several of the jokes here
are vulgar or would be considered heretical.  If you can't handle it,
don't read it.  If you do read it, and find you can't handle it, talk
with the higher layers of your church administration, as they most
likely provide some of the best fodder for the jokes.  Also, if you find
something you don't like, don't assume that I feel the way the joke does.
God gave us freedom of thought, and the Bill of Rights gives us free
speech (at least here in the U.S., some of the rest of the world has to
be more careful).  Because of this, if someone wants a joke included in
this list, it will be, so long as the subject of the joke fits the topical
nature of the list.


This makes a nice lead in to the second subject, submission of additons
to the list.  Please mail additions to  I will
try to catch all of those that I see posted, but sometimes I go on long
trips and am forced to forego rec.humor for a couple of weeks, so it
would be best if you mail to me in addition to posting your joke.

There are a couple of ways to get copies of this list.  The simplest is to
go to

The second method is to use your news reader to mail the files to yourself,
and then save the files from your mailer.

If the first two methods don't work for you, let me know, and, subject to my
own time constraints, I will mail you a copy.


[Ed. note -- these first two jokes are very similar, but I liked parts
of them both.  You can take what you like best out of each and tell it
your own way.]

Jesus, Moses and an old man were teeing off on the 16th hole on heaven's
golf course.  The 16th hole is a par 3 (short) over a lake.  Moses,
the first to tee off, steps up and swings, and the ball dives right for 
the water.  He instantly spreads his arms, the water parts, and the
ball rolls across the bottom of the lake and up on to the green.  The
others complement him on his shot, and then Jesus steps up for his turn.
Like Moses, Jesus' ball heads straight for the water, but when it gets
there, it just rolls across the surface of the lake, continuing until
it gets across and rolls up onto the green.  After showering him
with complements, the old man steps up to take his shot.  His ball
also dives for the lake, but bounces off the back of a turtle and
on to the far shore.  There, a squirrel picks up the ball and heads
for the woods.  As the others begin to laugh, a hawk swoops down and
picks up the squirrel.  As the hawk flies over the green, it squeezes 
the squirrel.  The ball falls out of the squirrels mouth, bounces once
on the green, and then rolls into the cup.  Jesus turns to the man and
says, "Nice shot dad!"


One sunny day Jesus, Moses and an elderly small man were playing golf.

Jesus was the first to tee off and he hit the ball a little left and it
ended up in the water hazard. Because it was Jesus, his ball floated and
when he got down to the hazard he walked upon the water and hit the ball
onto the green.

Moses was the next to tee off, and like Jesus he hit the ball into the
water hazard. When he got down to the hazard, he parted the waters and hit
the ball onto the green.

The little old man was next, and he too hit into the water hazard. Just then
a big fish swallowed the ball and bagan the swim away. A hawk swooped down
and grabbed the fish in its talons and started to fly away. As the hawk 
passed over the green, it tightened its grip on the fish which caused the
ball to pop out of the fish. The ball landed on the green and rolled into 

Jesus then turned to the old man and said, "look Dad, if you're going to
play, play fair."


A rabbi goes to heaven and meets God for the first time.  A thought hits
him and asks God about what souls eat when they go to hell.  God just goes 
and tells him to look at what is being served.  So the rabbi peeks down 
below the clouds and behold it was mealtime in hell.  The souls there were 
being offered a seven-course meal with New York Strip, mashed pototoes, 
tossed salad, cranberry sauce, and a bottle of wine was being passed 
around.  Meanwhile God informs the rabbi that it was time for his meal - 
all he got was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  He asks God why the 
guys down there were getting the royal treatment while he had to eat - PBJ.
God replied: it simply does not pay to cook for two.


In 1875 a Danish couple converted to became Mormons and moved to Cache Valley
Utah.  They set up a farm in Rural Providence, Utah, and were self sufficient
for a couple of years.  By the third year, the husband decided to take a 
second wife, as mormons of the time did.  His wife was not too keen on the 
idea, so he convinced a Swedish neighbor to help in a plan to convince her.

"Let us go to the barn, and pray for guidance on this major decision", said
the husband.  Whatever God tells us, that's what we'll do".  They went to
the barn, got on their knees, and old farmer Madsen started with the usual
openings to Mormon prayers.  After a few minutes of this, he posed the 
question:  "heavenly father, should I take another wife?"

Farmer Olson was in the rafters, as previously arranged, and in the most
booming, deep voice he could muster, said "Brother Madsen, I command thee
to take another wife".  After a moment, farmer Madsen looked over to his
wife, and saw that she was sobbing uncontrollably.  He put his arm around
her, and said, "There there,  a second wife will be an addition to the 
family, but she will never be a replacement for you.  I'll still love you 
just as much."  

Mrs. Madsen said "I have no problem with you taking a second wife, I've 
been resigned to that for a year now.  But in my worst nightmare, I *never*
imagined that God was a Swede!"


A lawyer dies and goes to Heaven, where he is brought before God. "A lawyer,
eh?" says God (who seems to be Canadian).  "We've never had a lawyer in Heaven
before.  Argue a point of the law for my edification."

The lawyer goes into panic and says "Oh, God, I cannot think of an argument
worthy of your notice.  But I'll tell you what:  you argue a point of the law
and I'll refute you."


A friend asks God where he's going on holiday this year and God
replies, "Certainly not earth again. I went there about 2 millenia ago,
got some girl pregnant - they haven't stopped talking about it since!"


A hippie dies and goes to the Pearly Gates. St. Peter looks him up, and
says, "I'm sorry, but you'll be going down to Hell." The hippie, astounded,
peers through the gates and sees God walking in the distance. "God!" he
says. "What gives? Remember that time I was tripping on acid? I saw you,
and you said we'd be in Heaven together forever!"

God thought for a minute, then said, "Oh yeah, but I was drunk."


There once was a priest who loved to golf. He was pretty good at
it and had two nuns as an entourage who would follow him around
and watch him play. One Saturday the priest was shooting a great
round, when he came upon the eighth hole. He started off with a
beautiful drive to down the fareway, and a nice chip to the
green. When he goes to putt the ball it rolls straight for the
hole, swerves, misses rolls down the hill and into the lake. The
priest enraged by this flub in an otherwise perfect round takes
out his sand wedge, bends it over his knee, and hurls it at a
tree. He then screams at the top of his lungs:

"GODDAMNIT, I missed!"

The two nuns are shocked and berate him saying, "You shouldn't
swear or GOD will get you."

The priest, a little abashed decides to continue his round.
Amazingly, he finds that his game is improving. However when he
gets to the thirteenth hole he drives a wicked slice into the
water hazard, takes his penalty and winds up ont he green one
under par. He putts the ball, it rolls straight for the hole
swerves rolls down the hill and into a gopher hole. The priest,
red with anger, takes his favorite driver and bashes it on a
nearby rock screaming:

"GODDAMNIT, I missed!"

The two nuns stare at him and say, "We're warning you, curb your
swearing or GOD will get you."

The priest ignoring them continues with his game and manages to
turn things around so that by the time he is at the eighteenth
hole he is shooting almost as good as his personal best. He
drives the ball from the tee on a par four to within two feet of
the cup. If he makes his next putt he will beat the clubhouse
record. He lines up his putt, swings, it rolls toward the hole
swerves, hits a rock bounces towards the lake where just before
it hits the water, a fish leaps up out of the water swallows the
ball and dives away. This makes the priest so furious that he
takes his entire bag and hurls it into the lake, screaming after
the fish:

"GODDAMNIT, I missed!"

The two nuns aghast declare, "That does it, now GOD is going to
get you."

Suddenly, dark clouds begin to gather, thunder booms, and
lightning strikes the two nuns dead disintegrated. And a big
booming voice shouts:

"DAMNIT, I missed"


Q:  How can you make God laugh?
A:  Tell Him your plans for the future.



Three guys die and go to heaven.  The first goes up to St. Peter who says, I 
have only one question before you go into heaven: Were you faithful to your 
wife?  The guy answers; "Yes, I never even looked at another women."  St.Peter 
says-"See that Rolls-Royce over there?  That's your car to drive while your in 
heaven".  The second guy gets the same question, and answers:"Once I strayed, 
but I confessed to my wife and she forgave me and we worked it out."  St. 
Peter says " See that new Buick over there, that's your car to use in heaven". 
The third guy answers the same question: "I have to admit, I chased every bit 
of tail I could, and was with a lot of women."  St. Peter says, ok, but you 
were basically a good guy, so that old VW Bug over there is yours to use while 
your in heaven.  The three guys go off on their seperate ways.  

A few weeks later #2 and #3 are driving along in the Buick when they see #1's 
Rolls Royce parked outside of a BAR.  They stop and GO INTO THE BAR and find 
#1 with empty bottles all around him, face down with his face in his hands on 
the bar.  They come up to him and #2 says;"Bud, what could possibly be so 
bad-you're in heaven, you drive a Rolls Royce, and everything is great!"  He 
says: "I saw my wife today!"  The other 2 answer that's great! What's the 
problem"  He answers: "She was riding a bicycle!"


A man who is an avid golfer finally gets a once in a lifetime chance
for an audience with the Pope.  After standing in line for hours,
he gets to the Pope and says, "Holiness, I have a question that
only you can answer.  You see, I love golf, and I feel a real need
to know if there is a golf course in heaven.  Can you tell me if
there is?"  The Pope considers for a moment, and says, "I do not
know the answer to your quesiton, my son, but I will talk to God
and get back with you."  The next day, the man is called for another
audience with the Pope to receive the answer to his question.  He
stands before the Pope, who says, "My son, I have some good news
and some bad news in relation to your question.  The good news is
that heaven has the most fabulous golf course that you could imagine
and is in eternally perfect shape.  It puts all courses on earth
to shame.  The bad news is that you have a tee time for tomorrow 


A lawyer died and arrived at the pearly gates.  To his dismay, there 
were thousands of people ahead of him in line to see St. Peter.  To 
his surprise, St. Peter left his desk at the gate and came down the 
long line to where the lawyer was, and greeted him warmly.  Then St. 
Peter and one of his assistants took the lawyer by the hands and 
guided him up to the front of the line, and into a comfortable chair 
by his desk.  The lawyer said, "I don't mind all this attention, but 
what makes me so special?"  St. Peter replied, "Well, I've added
up all the hours for which you billed your clients, and by my 
calculation you must be about 193 years old!"


The Pope and a lawyer find themselves together before the 
Pearly Gates. After a small quantum of time which was spent 
discussing their respective professions, ol' St. Peter shows 
up to usher them to their new Heavenly station.  After passing 
out wings, harps, halos and such, St. Pete decides to show them 
to their new lodgings.  Only a brief flight from the welcome, 
Pete brings them down on the front lawn of a huge palatial estate 
with all sorts of lavish trappings.  This, Pete announces, is 
where the lawyer will be spending eternity, (at least until the 
end of time..)  "Hot Dang", the Pope says to His-self, "If he's
getting a place like this, I can hardly wait to see my digs!".  
They take flight once again, and as Pete leads on, the landscape 
below begins to appear more and more mundane until they finally 
land on a street lined with Brownstone houses.  Pete indicates 
the third walkup on the left as the Popes new domicile and turns
to leave, wishing the pontiff all his best.  The Pope, in a mild 
state of astonishment, cries out "Hey Pete!  What's the deal here?  
You put that lawyer in a beautiful estate home and I, spiritual 
leader of terra-firma, end up with this dive?"  Pete looks at the 
pontiff amusedly and replys: "Look here old fellow, this street is 
practically encrusted with spiritual leaders from many times and 
religions.  We're putting you here with them so you guys can get 
your dogma together. That other guy gets an estate, because he's 
the first non-damned lawyer to make it up here!!"


A lawyer is standing at the gate to Heaven and St. Peter is listing 
his sins:
   1) Defending a large corporation in a pollution suit where he 
      knew they were guilty.
   2) Defending an obviously guilty murderer because the fee was high.
   3) Overcharging fees to many clients.
   4) Prosecuting an innocent woman because a scapegoat was needed 
      in a controversial case.

And the list goes on for quite awhile.

The lawyer objects and begins to argue his case.  He admits all these 
things, but argues, "Wait, I've done some charity in my life also."  
St. Peter looks in his book and says,"Yes, I see.  Once you gave a dime 
to a panhandler and once you gave an extra nickel to the shoeshine boy, 
correct?" The lawyer gets a smug look on his face and replies, "Yes."   
St. Peter turns to the angel next to him and says, "Give this guy 15 
cents and tell him to go to hell."


   A very good man dies, and as a reward for a life well-spent, goes 
to heaven.  When he arrives, St. Peter meets him at the gate.
   "Welcome," says St. Peter, "since you were such a good person in 
life, you may enter heaven."
   "Thank you," said the man.  "But before I come in, could you tell 
me what kind of other people are here?"
   "Well, all kinds," replied St. Peter.
   "Are there any convicted criminals in heaven?" asked the man.
   "Yes, some," said St. Peter.
   "Are there any communists in heaven?" asked the man.
   "Yes, there are," replied St. Peter.
   "Are there any Nazis in heaven?  Asked the man.
   "Just a few," said St. Peter.
   "Well, are there any lawyers in heaven?" asked the man.
   St. Peter replied "What, and ruin it for everyone else?"


   The temperature control in Hell went haywire and the heat started 
to make even the condition in Heaven uncomfortable.  St. Peter got 
Satan on the horn and yelled, "You'd better fix that immediately or 
I'll sue."
   On hearing that, Satan chuckled, "Oh yeah, how?  I have all the 
lawyers down here.  And besides, how can I fix it when you have all 
the good engineers?"


A doctor dies and goes to heaven.  St. Peter meets him at the pearly 
gates and checks him in.  After he's registered, St. Peter says to 
him "Look at the time: you must be hungry!  Heaven Cafeteria is serving 
lunch, why don't you get yourself something to eat?" The doctor goes 
to the cafeteria and notices the long line.  He immediately cuts in at 
the front, only to hear loud protests.  "I'm a doctor" he says, "I'm a 
busy man, I don't have time to wait in line." The others say "You're 
in heaven now, we're all the same here, get to the back of the line 
and wait your turn!" A few weeks later, waiting patiently on line for 
lunch, the doctor notices a man come dashing in wearing scrubs and a 
lab coat, stethoscope around his neck.  He butts in at the head of the 
line and no-one utters a peep.  "Hey," he says to the guy in front of 
him, "who does that guy think he is?"  "Oh, that's God," says the guy, 
"He likes to play doctor."


Saint Peter was at his post at the pearly gates, and was in
somewhat of a bad  mood. Today only couples were on line to get

"Next!", he called out, in a bored fashion. Up stepped a couple.

"Name?" asked St.Peter.

"Goldberg", replied the husband.

St. Peter slowly looked up from his desk, looked them over for a
moment, and finally asked with a bit of a sneer: "You Jewish?"

"Why, yes" said Mr. Goldberg, somewhat surprised.

St. Peter then leaned forward, pointing his finger at them, and
said "You know, I don't like Jewish people. You're cheap! Always
grubbing for money...cheating people...I don't know if I want to
let you two in here today. So what's your wife's name?"

"Penny" replied Mr. Goldberg.

"PENNY!!!" exclaimed St. Peter. "Look at that, you even named your
wife after money! Get outta here!... try again some other time."

"Next!", he called out, still agitated. Up stepped the next couple.

"Name?" asked St.Peter.

"Murphy", replied the husband.

Again St. Peter slowly looked up from his desk, looked them over
for a moment, and asked with a sneer: "You Irish?"

"Why, yes" said Mr. Murphy.

St. Peter again leaned forward, pointing his finger at them, and
said "You know, I don't like Irish people. You drink too much!
Always getting drunk on St. Patrick's Day and throwing-up all over
the streets...beating up your husbands, wives and kids during
drunken rages...I don't know if I want to let you two in here
today. So what's your wife's name?"

"Sherri" replied Mr. Murphy.

"SHERRI!!!" exclaimed St. Peter. "Look at that, you even named your
wife after a drink! Get outta here!... try again some other time."

Meanwhile, several couples back, a Greek man overhearing all of
this turns to his wife and says "Let's get out of here Fanny,
there's no way we're getting in here today."


Four nuns were standing in line at the gates of heaven.  Peter asks the 
first if she has ever sinned.  "Well, once I looked at a man's penis," she 
"Put some of this holy water on your eyes and you may enter heaven," Peter
 told her.
Peter then asked the second nun if she had ever sinned.  "Well, once I held 
a man's penis," she replied.
"Put your hand in this holy water and you may enter heaven," he said.
Just then the fourth nun pushed ahead of the third nun.  Peter asked her, 
"Why did you push ahead in line?"
She said, "Because I want to gargle before she sits in it!"


Three nuns who had recently died were on their way to heaven. At the pearly
gates they were met by St. Peter. Around the gates there was a collection of
lights and bells.
    St. Peter stopped them and told them that they would each have to answer
    a question before they could enter through the pearly gates.
    St. Peter: "What were the names of the two people in the
    garden of Eden?"
    1st nun : "Adam and Eve"
    The lights flashed the bells rang and in she went through the pearly
    St. Peter: "What did Adam eat from the forbidden tree ?"
    2nd nun : "An apple"
    The lights flashed the bells rang and in she went through the pearly
    And finally it came the turn of the last nun.
    St. Peter : "What was the first thing Eve said to Adam ?"
    After a few minutes thinking she says "Gosh, that's a hard one!"
    The lights flashed the bells rang and in she went through the pearly


It seems that a devout, good couple was about to get married, but a
tragic car accident ended their lives.

When they got to heaven, they asked St. Peter if he could arrange for
them to be married, saying that it was what they had hoped for in
life, and they still desired wedded union.  He thought about it and
agreed, but said they would have to wait.

It was almost one hundred years later when St. Peter sent for them.
They were married in a simple ceremony.

So things went on, for thirty years or so, but they determined, in
this time, that eternity was best not spent together.

They went back to St. Peter, and said, "We thought we would be happy
forever, but now we believe that we have irreconcilable differences.
Is there any way we can get divorced?"

"Are you kidding?" said St. Peter.  "It took me a hundred years to get
a priest up here to marry you.  I'll never get a lawyer!"


A busload of priests have an accident, all of them were killed instantly.
On arriving at the pearly gates, they find there's a terrible queue.

St Peter is there looking at a big book, jotting down notes, mumbling
occaisionally. There is a person standing in front of his desk being
processed.  After some time St Peter says "Next" and another person or
family steps up.  For some reason race and nationality seems difficult
for the priests to distinguish.

The wait seems to take forever, there is an enormous number of people 
waiting, and St. Peter doesn't seem to be hurrying.

People are arriving all the time, some in mangled states, some famished
and some looking "normal" .  Then a dishevelled man comes in, cigarette
but hanging from his lips like it had taken root.  The stubble on his
chin looked as though it could sand diamonds.

He stands at the back of the queue like everyone else.  St Peter however
spies him and stands up and comes over to him.

"Oh come in... Come in... welcome... No need to queue, we have you already
processed... Your residence is in order.  Special treatment for you."

The priests have something to say about that.  "Hey" says their spokesman.
"How come he gets the special treatment? We are afterall men of God."

"That man..." says St Peter, "Was a taxi driver.  He has scared the HELL
out of more people than any of you lot."


A man dies, and finds himself in heaven.  St. Peter offers to give him the 
tour.  They walk around a little, and the man sees Samoans worshiping God 
in a Samoan way, and Zoroastrians worshiping in a Zoroastrian way, and 
Eskimos worshiping in an Eskimo way, and so on...on and on, till at one 
point they come to an enormous fortress made of stone, completely sealed 
off, with no windows or doors.  Dimly, from within, they can hear the 
sound of wild partying.  "Shhh," says St. Peter.  "Be very quiet."  The 
two tiptoe past the fortress in utter silence, and when they have left 
it a way behind, the man turns to St. Peter and says, "Why did we have to 
be so quiet back there?  What's in the fortress?"  St. Peter answers, 
"Oh, those are the Catholics.  They don't know anyone else is here."


Und wo wir gerade dabei sind, einen f"ur Theologen:
Karl Barth kommt in den Himmel. (F"ur Nicht-Theologen: Das ist so ein
bekannter evangelischer Theologe der es mit der Dogmatik hatte...)
Petrus begr"usst ihn freundlich, meint aber: "Also, wir wollen
Dich hier schon reinlassen, aber vorher m"ussen wir Dich erstmal
pr"ufen, ob Du das auch alles verstanden hast, was Du da unten
so verzapft hast, mit der Dogmatik etc." Schickt ihn dann also
in so einen Nebenraum, wo Gott, Jesus und der Heilige Geist schon
warten. Die T"ur geht zu und Petrus wartet draussen.

Eine Stunde vergeht, zwei Stunden, drei Stunden. Petrus wird schon
langsam nerv"os. Sieben Stunden sp"ater springt dann endlich die
T"ur auf, Jesus st"urzt heraus, v"ollig fertig. Petrus fragt ihn:
"Na, was ist, warum hat es so lange gedauert, ist er durchgefallen?"
Jesus: "Karl Barth? Nein, der nicht, aber der Heilige Geist!"


And while we're on the subject, one for the theologians: Karl Bath
goes to Heaven (For the non-theologians: Karl Bath is a well-known
evangelical theoretician on religious dogma) St. Peter greets him in a
friendly way, but says "We would like to let you in, but we have to
quiz you to make sure you have a good understanding of the religious
theory."  So he sends Karl into the next room, where God, Jesus, and
the Holy Ghost are already waiting.  Peter shuts the door, and waits
outside.  One hour goes by, then two, and three.  Peter slowly starts
to get nervous.  Seven hours later, the door bangs open, and Jesus
storms out, completely pissed.  Peter asks him, "What could it be that
took so long, is he damned?"  Jesus replies: "Karl Bath? No, but the
Holy Ghost is!"


Der Papst, Kardinal Meissner (vom Erzbistum Koeln) und Drewermann 
(Kirchenkritiker und ehem. Pfarrer) kommen in den Himmel. Petrus oeffnet 
die Tuer: "Hallo zusammen, ich lasse Euch ja gerne rein, aber erst muesst 
Ihr noch bei unserem Vorstand vorstellig werden !" Die drei nicken 
zustimmend. Erst geht der Papst in das Zimmer. Drin sitzen Gott, Jesus und 
der heilige Geist. Nach einer Stunde kommt der Papst wieder raus. "Na, wie 
war's ?" - "Naja", meint der Papst,"ich muss nochmal runter auf die Erde, 
ich habe etwas verkehrt gemacht." - und verschwand.  Danach geht Kardinal 
Meissner rein. Nach 3 Stunden kommt er wieder raus. Petrus und Drewermann 
fragen wiederum: "Na, wie war's ?" - "Naja", sagt Meissner, "ich muss nochmal 
runter auf die Erde, ich habe etwas verkehrt gemacht..."  - und verschwand. 
Zu guter letzt geht Drewermann rein, Petrus wartet noch auf ihn. Es vergehen 
2 Stunden, 3 Stunden,... Nach 6 Stunden kommt Jesus aus dem Zimmer geschossen. 
Petrus fragt: "Was machst Du denn hier ?" - "Naja",sagt Jesus, "ich muss 
nochmal runter auf die Erde..."

[tranlation, rough]

The Pope, Cardinal Meissner nad Drewermann are entering heaven.  St. Peter
tells them that they must first be questioned to make sure that they have
learned enough on earth to get into heaven.  The Pope goes in first, and
comes out after an hour.  St Peter asked him if he got into heaven, and
he replies, "No, I have to go back to earth to learn a few more things."
Cardinal Meissner goes for his interview and is gone for three hours.
When he returns, St. Peter asks the same question.  The reply is, "No,
I have to go back to earth to learn a few more things."  Then it's
Drewermann's turn to be questioned.  Time passes ... 2 hours ... 3 hours
... 4 hours.  Finally, after 6 hours pass, Jesus comes out.  St. Peter,
curious to figure out what is going on, asks, "What's happening in there?"
Jesus replies, "I have to go back to earth .... "


There was once a noble man who died at the age of sixty five and then
proceeded towards heaven. At the pearly gates, he was met by St.Peter who
asked him whether he wanted to go to heaven or hell. He gave him a chance
to take a tour of both and decide for himself.

First, he was taken to heaven where he was shown people praying and in
general leading a very austere kind of existence. Then he was taken on a 
grand tour of hell where he saw people were drinking and having a good 
time, lots of good looking women and in general, a  lot of merrymaking.

When taken back to St.Peter, he asked to be put in hell.  Suddenly, a 
huge servant from hell pulled him gruffly by the arm and took him to hell.
But he was shocked to see that there were people being tortured everywhere
and lots of boiling oil and devilish creatures. He exclaimed to the 
attendant - "this was not what I was shown a short while ago".

To this the attendant laughed and replied - "Oh, that was our demo model!"


Three people walk up to St. Peter, hoping to enter heaven, but he has a
little test for them first.  He asks the first man why we celebrate Easter,
and the man says, "Oh that's the day when we get really dressed up in fun
costumes and go trick or treating right?"  St. Peter is disgusted and he
sends the man to hell.  The second man comes to the gate and St. Peter
asks him the same question, and this man says, "Oh this is when we eat turkey
and celebrate all of the things that we are thankful for right?"  Peter
couldn't beleive it, he sent the second man to hell and called the third
man up.  He again asked the man why Easter is so important, and why we
celebrate it, and this man says "Oh, that is easy.  Jesus came to the earth
and he was crucified, and burried in a cave.."  St. Peter sighed because his
faith in man was restored but then he heard the man say..."and then Jesus
rose up and exited the cave......and if he sees his shadow we get another
3 months of winter right?"


A lawyer shows up at the pearly gates. St. Peter says, "Normally we don't
let you people in here but you're in luck, we have a special this week.
You go to hell for the length of time you were alive, then you get to come
back up here for eternity."
     The lawyer says, "I'll take the deal."
     St. Peter says, "Good, I'll put you down for 212 years in hell ..."
     The lawyer says, "What are you talking about? I'm 65 years old!"
     St. Peter says, "Up here we go by billing hours."

A group of new arrivals were sitting in the reception room in
heaven, waiting for their turn to see St. Peter. On the walls of the
reception room were hundreds of clocks all ticking properly along.
Every once in a while, however, a clock would suddenly move ahead
several minutes in one jump.
Curious, one fellow who was waiting turned to the receptionist
and said, "Excuse me, but why do some of those clocks jump ahead
now and then?"
The receptionist answered, "Oh, those are the clocks that
keep track of the days that people still have to live on Earth.
Each person has a clock.  Every time they do something sneaky or
bad, they lose some of their allotted time on Earth and their
clock jumps ahead a few minutes."
Interested, the man asked, "Can I see my little daughter's
"Sure, said the receptionist," and showed him a clock that ticked
calmly and steadily along.
"Now, can I see my wife's clock, please?" asked the man.
"Why not?" said the receptionist and showed him a clock that for
the most part ran smoothly, once in a great while jumping ahead
two or three minutes at once.
The man said, "You know, I was a good Democrat back there on
Earth.  Can I see Bill Clinton's clock?"
"I'm afraid not," said the receptionist.  "It's down in
the accounting department.  Their air conditoning broke this morning
and they're using it for an electric fan."

This one is normally told to more than one person at a time:

Describe the situation which you find yourself and the listening parties 
and then add the fact that some horrible disater happens and you all find 
yourselves dead and in hell standing before a man introducing himself as 
Satan himself.

Satan says that he is quite busy do to the horrible disaster that has just
occured and that you and your listeners will have to take care of 
yourselves and points out that there are just enough doors as are people 
and that everyone must pick a door at random and thats how they will spend 
eternity. At this satan exits.

You, figuring what the heck, go up and choose a door and as you look inside
and see many people hung by their thumbs and up to their necks in shit, flys 
and other insects buzzing around (at this point you may make up your own 
torture of eternity is you like), suddenly you here a loud, deep voice say 
*insert your name* you are doomed to spend eternity hung up to your neck in 
shit by your thumbs.

Continue this general form for the others listening except for one specially 
chosen person. When you get to the last person he opens the door and sees 
Heather Locklear (or any other superbabe or dude) lying on a giant king 
size bed wearing a tiny little silk teddy, when suddenly the loud, deep voice 
booms out HEATHER LOCKLEAR you are doomed to spend eternity..........


John Smith [or your favourite politician] dies and goes to heaven.  At the 
pearly gates he is net by St. Peter and led in.  St. Peter speaks:

"Well John, you committed a few weeny sins while you were alive, didn't you? 
Lying is something we're a bit hot on at the moment, and, as a politician..."

"Say no more" says John Smith, "you've got me there."

"Right then, since you did so much good generally for your country, we're 
prepared to let you in, but you'll have to do penance for two years.  You 
will have to spend that time with this woman."

At this, the most hideously deformed, smelly, gossipping woman appears.  
Smith appears to blanch slightly, but says: "Fair enough, I guess it's 
worth it for eternity in paradise."

"Good man, this way now."

St. Peter leads them through a door into a vast chamber, filled with white 
robed couples, chatting and laughing with each other.  Sweet music and the 
aroma of rose blossom fills the air, and angels and cherubs flutter about.
Suddenly, Smith notices his old rival, John Major [or your least favourite 
politician], whose death had preceeded his by a matter of weeks.  Amazingly, 
he is arm in arm with Cindy Crawford [or your favourite woman].

"What the hell is this" storms Smith.  Major was the worst thing to happen 
to my country for 200 years.  He destroyed everything I stood for, and was 
totally dishonest in doing it.  How come I get 2 years with this hag, while 
he gets to cavort with Cindy?"

"Steady on" says St. Peter, "let me explain. That's not Major doing his 
penance, it's Cindy doing hers!"


The British Intelligence Chief (James Bond's boss M) sends James Bond on a 
secret mission to heaven. When M didn't hear from Bond for over a day, he 
got worried and called up heaven. Virgin Mary picks up the phone and says
"Virgin Mary speaking". M asks her if Bond has reached there yet and she 
says no.

M waits another few hours and calls Heaven back again. "Virgin Mary speaking"
comes the response. "Is James there yet?" asks M and the response is no again.

M is really worried by this time but he waits for a few more hours and then
calls Heaven back again. "Mary here" comes the response.


Do you suppose Heaven is on the net?  The White House is, so why not?

A  rabbi was visiting his old friend, a priest. The rabbi had never seen the
practices in the church so he asks his friend if he could attend one of his
sermons. The father says OK. After the sermon the confessions begin. The rabbi
asks if he could sit behind and listen to the confessions. The priest agrees. A
young man steps in the confessional and says 
" Father, Father I have sinned". 
"What did you do my son" the priest asks. 
"I slept with three women during the past week."
"Are you married?"
"You have committed a great sin but I can help you. Pray the lord, sing gospels
and hail Mary and donate $100 to the church."
After a few minutes another man enters the confessional and says the same
things. The priest asks him to the do the same things and tells him to donate
$100 to the church.
At this point the priest gets a phone call and has to leave. Before leaving he
asks the rabbi tif he could take over the duties for a few minutes and rabbi
says "Don't worry. It's a piece of cake."
A few minutes later a young woman enters the confessional.
"Father, Father I have sinned."
"What did you do my child?" asks the rabbi.
"I slept with a married man."
"How many men did you sleep with?" asks the rabbi
"Just one"
"Are you sure you did not sleep with three men?"
"Yes , I am sure"
The rabbi thinks for a minute and says;
"You have definitely committed a sin but I will help you. Pray the Lord, Sing
gospels and Hail Marys and donate $100 to the church and now the church owes you
two fucks." 


Chaucer and Shakespeare died.  St. Peter told them there was only one 
spot remaining in heaven.  The one to compose the best 4-liner ending 
in "Timbuktu" got into heaven.  They came back a day later and 
Shakespeare recited:

Two caravans in the desert heat,
Their paths crossed and they did meet,
Side by side, two by two,
They headed off to Timbuktu.

Chaucer grinned and recited:

We were in the desert, my friend Tim and I,
A maidens' harem we did spy,
But they were three and we were two,
So I bucked one and Tim bucked two!

Guess who got into Heaven?


A Catholic, a Jew, and an Episcopalian were lined up at the pearly gates. 
The Catholic asks to get in and St. Peter says, "Nope, sorry."  "Why not?"
says the Catholic, "I've been good."  "Well, you ate meat on a Friday in
Lent, so I can't let you in."  The Jew walks up and again St. Peter says
no.  The Jew wants an explanation so St. Peter replies, "There was that
time you ate pork...sorry, you have to go to the other place."  Then the
Episcopalian goes up and asks to be let in and St. Peter again says
no. "Why not?" asks the Episcopalian, "What did I do wrong?"  "Well,"
says St. Peter, "you once ate your entree with the salad fork."


This guy dies and gets sent down to Hell.  When he arrives, Satan 
(aka Reagan/Bush/Clinton for the benfit of some of our Islamic 
Fundamentalist friends)meets him in the reception room and says to him "OK,
now you've got to choose the room in which you will spend the rest of 
eternity" and he points towards three doors on the other side of the room.

The guy goes through the first door.  Beyond was a vast room with a 
concrete floor.  The room was full of people standing on their heads. 
"That floor looks a bit hard" said the guy "I think I'll try next 

So he tries the next door, and finds himself if another vast room, 
this time with a wooden floor.  Again the room is full of people 
standing on their heads.  "I Don't like the look of this" he 
said, "I'd get splinters of wood in my head"  So he tries the third 
and final door.

This time, the room is full of people sitting on chairs knee-deep in 
shit, eating biscuits and drinking cups of tea.  "Hmm" he said to himself 
"I suppose that spending eternity sitting on a chair with my legs dangling 
in shit isn't such a bad thing, at least I'll have something to eat and drink"
So he went back to where Satan was waiting for him and told him about the 
decision he had made.

"Very well," said Satan "you shall spend eternity in the third room" 
and he escorts the guy back to the door.  As he opens the door he 
hears a voice shouting "OK everybody, tea-break's over...back on your

Did you hear about the blond who thought Jesus was a giant teddy bear
called Gladly who had something wrong with his eyes because everytime
she went to church they would sing "Gladly the cross I'd bear"!!!


Jesus was on his travels, when he came up to a lonely little town, miles from
anywhere. As one does when one is the Son of God, he went in in an attempt to
spread the Good News. Understandably, he was shocked when the first thing he
saw was a huge crowd of people gathering rocks; in the early ADs, this only
meant one thing. He followed the crowd until they arrived at the village's
place of punishment, at which point a woman was hurled into the centre and
bombarded for a few seconds. Naturally, Jesus leapt in and stopped

"Tell me, what has this woman done to deserve death?"
"She is an harlot, rabbi."
"Hmpf." And then, in a voice like thunder, "Who among you claims to be
Jehovah? Which of you has the right to judge her? Let the person who is
without blame in this regard be the person that can judge her."

And there was complete silence. Until, from the midst of the crowd, a single
stone arced gracefully over every head, and caught the harlot straight between
the eyes.

And Jesus said, "Mother, you can be a real pain sometimes...."


Bumper sticker:
                             Jesus is coming!
                         (And boy is he *pissed*!)


Become a Catholic, be led by sexual perverts, engage in ritual canibalism,
and pretend that the Trinity is really one god so you can claim to be
monotheistic (at least when talking to the comatose...).


                        Jesus Saves

Basic theme is
"Jesus walks on water -- he's the lifeguard at the pool!" gets
 repeated three times, then the chorus is "Jesus saves, jesus
 saves, Jesus saves."  Just like when you were at summer camp.

        Let's see:

Jesus puts his money in the Chase Manhatten Bank
Jesus trades in green stamps for a new Mercedes Benz
Jesus buys his groceries on double coupon days
Jesus buys reduced meats at the local discount store


Heard some two thousand years ago at a river in the middle east:

"I don't care who your father is!  You're not going to walk
where I'm fishing!"


All this talk has reminded me that only 12 months ago Jesus returned
and ended up by the side of the River Severn in Worcestershire, and
confronted an old boy who was sat fishing.

"I am Jesus - I have come to save to all from the horrors that be" 
exclaimed the great one.

"Sod off, you're scaring the fish" answered the old one.

"NO, you don't understand - I have returned to save the earth, now 
tell me, where should I start ?"

The old boy thinks for a while and tells him to perform a miracle, 
then he would believe that this is truly The Lord.

"Walk across the river" he tells Jesus.

So Jesus starts walking across the river, and the water is lapping 
round his ankles - then around his shins, then his knees. This starts 
worrying him, but continues knowing that he can do it. Next thing he 
knows, he slips and disappears under the water, and nearly drowns. He 
manages to claw his way back to the shore, and the old man says to him
"There you are, see, you're not Jesus, you can't walk across water"

Jesus responds, " Well, I used to be able to do it until I got these 
darned nail holes in my feet!"


Jesus is going through the countryside, very tired from the whole
resurrection thing (crucifiction can be soooooo tiring!).

He comes to an inn and puts three nails on the counter and says to
the innkeeper:  "Can you put me up for the night?"


Jesus and Moses were playing golf.
On a long hole with a water trap Jesus pulls out a five iron.  Moses tells 
him the iron is too short for the hole, but Jesus insists saying, "I've seen
Arnold Palmer do this a milion times."  When Jesus drives the ball into the 
water trap he asks Moses to split the water so he can get the ball, but Moses
refuses.  As Jesus is walking on the water looking for the ball a foursome 
comes up and asks Moses "Who does he think he is, Jesus Christ?"

To which Moses replies, "No, he thinks he's Arnold Palmer."


I was reading the New York Times and there was an article saying there is 
now proof that Jesus was Irish.  The researcher, Melanie Leahy, PHD Case 
Western, said the proof was "indelible and unreproachable"
	She said the facts are :
	1. He lived with his parents until he was 29.
	2. He went out drinking with the lads the night before he died.
	3. He thought his mother was a virgin, and she, the good woman, god
	   bless her, thought he was god. 


Jesus recently walked into a bar somewhere in the Western World. He 
approached three sad-faced gentlemen at a table, and greeted the first one:
"What's troubling you, brother?" he said.
"My eyes. I keep getting stronger and stronger glasses, and I still can't 
Jesus touched the man, who ran outside to tell the world about his now 20-20 
The next gentleman couldn't hear Jesus' questions, so The Lord just touched 
his ears, restoring his hearing to perfection. This man, too, ran out the 
door, probably on his way to the audiologist to get a hearing-aid refund.
 The third man leapt from his chair and backed up against the wall, even 
before Jesus could greet him.
 "Don't you come near me, man! Don't touch me!" he screamed. "I'm on 


A small factory in the northwest, Anderson Nails, had been experiencing 
years of success and growth.  Feeling that he was ready to try for the 
big time, the owner (Anderson, of course) contracted a big Madison Avenue 
agency to help him promote his product.
Aiming to get the greatest possible exposure, the agency booked a full 
minute at the beginning of the Super Bowl halftime show.  Anderson was 
pretty excited about this, and invited all of his friends and relatives 
to his home for a big Super Bowl party.
At the end of the first half, everybody drew closer to the TV, wanting to 
see the premiere of the commercial.  It began with an arial shot of the 
desert, and zoomed in on a small walled city.  As the camera slowly panned 
about the city, it became apparent that this was Jerusalem, during the 
Roman occupation.  A large hill on the horizon came into view, and as the 
camera drew closer, a number of crosses became visible.  The focus settled 
on a naked man in a crown of thorns, then moved in for an extreme closeup 
of his bleeding hands, and the nails which held them to the cross.  The 
nails were stamped with the Anderson Nails logo.  A subtitle appeared on 
the screen, bearing the words "Anderson Nails--the Expert's Choice".
Anderson's guests were horrified.  The party broke up before the end of 
the game.  The next day, he began to get phone calls from his oldest and 
most loyal customers, expressing their outrage and cancelling their orders.  
By the end of the week, his sales were down to nothing.  
He called the president of the advertising agency to cancel his contract.  
When Anderson explained the situation, the ad-man was surprised, and 
offered to run a new campaign at no charge. 

The new campaign was slated to start in a few weeks time (not too long 
before Easter, as it turned out).  This time, Anderson nervously watched 
the commercial alone in the privacy of his office.
It began the same way as before, with an arial view of Jerusalem. The 
camera finally settled on two Roman soldiers drinking wine at a table 
near the marketplace.   Hearing a disturbance nearby, they look up from 
their drinks in time to see a naked man, with bleeding hands and feet, 
being pursued by a group of soldiers.  The first soldier looks at his 
companion, smiles knowingly, and says "they didn't use Anderson nails!"


After two thousand or so years, Jesus returns to Earth and finds it much 
changed. All confused, he goes off to Jerusalem to seek out the chief rabbi 
not being aware that there's this Christianity thing that kind of gathered 
some steam since he was last here). 
He goes to the chief rabbi and shouts "What am I going to do rabbi ?"
"Excuse me" says the rabbi, "but do I know you ?"
"Of course, it's me, J.C. " he says, getting a little panicked.
"I'm sorry, I just don't recognise you.... wait, you are vaguely familiar"
"Yes, yes..." says J.C., getting excited.
"Could you just raise your arms, kind of perpendicular to your body... and 
lean against that bookcase"
"Sure" says Jesus "then you'll remember"
No sooner does Jesus assume the position, but the rabbi grabs a hammer and 
nails from his desk drawer and starts to hammer vigorously "You won't get 
away this time!!".



A man in the middle ages became fed up with humanity and decided to spend the 
rest of his life in a monastery.  The abbot warned him that he would have to 
take a vow of silence and live the rest of his life as a scribe, to which the 
man replied, "No Problem.  I'm sick of talking."

Ten years went by, and the abbot called for the man.  He told him that he was 
a model monk and perfect scribe, and that they were very happy to have him.  
As per their tradition, he was allowed to say two words.  Asked if he had 
anything to say, the man nodded and said: "Food cold."

The abbot sent him on his way.  Ten years later, he was brought before the 
abbot again and once again told how pleased they were with his performance, 
and that he was again allowed two more words if he so chose.  The man said:
"Bed hard," and was sent back to work. Another ten years went by and again 
the abbot sent for the man, telling him that he was the best monk they had 
ever had, and that he was allowed another two words.  The man nodded and said:
"I quit."

To this, the abbot replied in a disgusted tone: "Doesn't surprise me.  
You've done nothing but complain since you got here."


Two men visiting a monastery see a monk frying some fish and chips. One says 
to the other: 'is that the fish friar?'. The other says, 'no, it's the 


Did you hear about the giant rat that swallowed the monk?  They tried to free
him, but all they could do was pull the habit out of the rat.

This is the Canonical List of Religious Humor.  Several of the jokes here
are vulgar or would be considered heretical.  If you can't handle it,
don't read it.  If you do read it, and find you can't handle it, talk
with the higher layers of your church administration, as they most
likely provide some of the best fodder for the jokes.  Also, if you find
something you don't like, don't assume that I feel the way the joke does.
God gave us freedom of thought, and the Bill of Rights gives us free
speech (at least here in the U.S., some of the rest of the world has to
be more careful).  Because of this, if someone wants a joke included in
this list, it will be, so long as the subject of the joke fits the topical
nature of the list.


This makes a nice lead in to the second subject, submission of additons
to the list.  Please mail additions to  I will
try to catch all of those that I see posted, but sometimes I go on long
trips and am forced to forego rec.humor for a couple of weeks, so it
would be best if you mail to me in addition to posting your joke.

A mature woman was in the pastoral study receiving counseling for her 
upcoming fourth wedding.  "Father, how am I going to tell my
husband that I am still a virgin?"  "My child, you have been a 
married woman for many years.  Surely that cannot be."  "Well, father,
my first husband was a psychologist, and all he wanted to do was
talk, and the next one was in construction and he always said he'd
get to it tomorrow.  The last one was a gyneocologist and all he did was
look.  But his time, father, I'm marying a lawyer and I'm sure I'm
going to get screwed."


The new priest, at his first sermon, was so afraid he could hardly 
speak.  Before his second week at the pulpit, he asked the Monsignor 
how he could relax.  The Monsignor said "Next week, it might help if 
you put some vodka in the water pitcher. After a few sips, everything 
should go smoothly."
The next week the young priest put his elder's suggestion into practice, 
and really talked up a storm.  After the sermon, he asked the Monsignor 
how he had done.  The Monsignor replied, "Fine, but there are a few things 
you should learn before you address the congregation again."
First--   Next time, sip the vodka rather than gulping it down.
Second--  There are 10 Commandments and 12 Disciples, not
          12 Commandments and 10 Disciples.
Third--   David Slew Goliath, he did not kick the shit out of him.
Fourth--  We do not refer to Our Savior, Jesus Christ, and his
          Desciples as the late J.C. and the boys, nor do we
          refer to the cross as the "Big T."
Fifth--   The Father, Son & Holy Ghost are not Big Daddy, Junior, 
          and the Spook.
Sixth--   It's the Virgin Mary, not Mary with the cherry.
Seventh-- Next Sunday's event is a taffy pulling contest at
          St. Peter's.

  A woman is nearly caught with her lover when her husband comes home early.
 To hide her lover, she puts him in the closet.  While in the closet, the lover
 soon learns that he is not alone.  The breathing he hears belongs to, he
 discovers, the woman's young son.
  "Gee, it's dark in here, sir," said the boy.
  "Geez, kid, please shut up," replied the nervous man.
  "Well, mister, I think I'm gonna scream."
  "Please, kid, don't scream."
  "Can I have some money?" asked the boy.
  "Well, here, here's five dollars, it's all I've got."
  The boy, sensing that the man was lying, pressed on.
  "I really feel like screaming."
  "No, kid, look, here's fifty dollars, just don't scream."
  "Well, I don't know"
  "Here's the last of my money, just don't scream."
  The boy, satisfied, agreed to be quiet.  Later, he went with his mother to
 a store where a brand new bike was on sale.  When he tried to buy it with his
 new-found cash, his mother became suspicious of the source of this money.
  So, being a "good" Christian, she took him in to see the local pastor in
  "Gee," said the boy, not used to being in the confessional, "it sure is dark
 in here."
  "Don't start that with me again," said the priest.


A priest and a rabbi found themselves seated together on a long trans Atlantic
flight. They started talking and became quite friendly.  The priest slyly said 
to the rabbi, "Tell me the truth Rabbi. Have you ever tried a ham sandwich?

The rabbi confessed that he had once tried a ham sandwich. Then he asked the 
priest, "You guys are supposed to be celebate. Have you ever had sex with a 
woman?"  The priest confessed that he had.  "Beats the hell out of a ham 
sandwich, doesn't it?" asked the rabbi.


Said the Episcopalian priest to the Presbyterian minister:

"After all, we are both doing the Lord's work -- you in your way, and
I in His."


Farmer Brown is working hard in his garden.  It's a fabulous garden.
It has been meticulously weeded, watered, and fertilized.  The plants
are all flourishing and beautiful.

Along comes the parson, he says, "Glory be there, Farmer Brown.  Ain't
it a mirucuhl what the Lord can do in a garden?"

Farmer Brown sez, "Reckon so, Pastor, but ya shoulda' seed it when he
had it all to hisself."


A Polak saw a priest walking down the street. Noticing his collar, he stopped 
him and said, "Excuse me, but why are you wearing your shirt backwards?"

The priest laughed, "Because, my son, I am a Father!"

The Polak scratched his head. "But I am a father too, and I don't wear my 
shirt backwards!"

Again the priest laughed. "But I am a Father of thousands!"

To which the Polak replied, "Well then you should wear your shorts backwards!"


The pope went to a steak restaurant where the waiters called orders
for rare steak into the kitchen by yelling, "One bloody steak!" The pope,
trying hard to fit in, offers, "...And an order of fucking fries!"


A lady was having a conversation with a (catholic) priest :

L: I have a female parrot, very beautiful, but it constantly says
very obscene things.

P: Oh, but I have a parrot too, a male, which prays all the time.
Let's put them together.

So they brought the female parrot to the priest house. As soon as
the male parrot sees the female, it screams :
"Thank you my God, my prayers have been answered !"


Two brothers went to confession, the younger one went in first.  The priest
always liket to ask questions to the children before their confession so the
priest asked the little boy, "Do you know where God is?"  The little boy ran
out and told his brother, "Let's get the hell out of here, the priest lost 
God and wants to blame it on me!"


A priest and a businessman were playing golf. After playing for a while,
the businessman's game takes a turn for the worse.
"Damn! I missed!" he swears as his ball lands in a sand bunker.
The priest is understandably shocked and admonishes the businessman:
"Do not swear, my son, or God will punish you."
The next time the businessman fails, however, he exclaims again:
"Damn! I missed!"
The priest grows angry and scolds him severely:
"My son, you place yourself in great jeopardy by your words!"
But alas, as the businessman's ball again fails to roll where he wants
it to, he yells loudly:
"*Damn*, I missed!"
Suddenly a lightning bolt strikes from the clear sky and reduces the
priest to a pile of smoldering ash. A booming voice from
heaven then shouts:
"D A M N !   I   M I S S E D !"


A priest was praying for guidance: 
"Oh God, grant me this knowledge: what is the meaning of life?" 
For a while, Creation was silent. Then a
booming voice, sounding severely pissed-off, shouts from heaven:
"R E A D   T H E   F * C K I N G   F A Q !"


The Pope was in the middle of an audience when his principal
advisor whispered in his ear, "Your holiness, I hate to interrupt,
but the Messiah is on the phone and he wants to talk to you."

The Pope excused himself so he could take the call in private.

A few minutes later he came back out with a somber expression.
He said, "I have some good news and some bad news.  The good news
is that the call WAS from the messiah, and the time of the second
coming IS at hand.  The bad news is that he was calling from
Salt Lake City."				[Red Skelton]


The Pope and Ted Kennedy die at the same time and meet on the way to
their prospective destinations.  After a brief discussion they proceed
on, but due to some unforeseen confusion, Ted winds up in Heaven and the
Pope goes to Hell!

After a few hours, the error is caught and they again meet on the way to
their final resting places.

The Pope say, "Boy, I was worried for awhile.  I always wanted to meet
the Virgin Mary."

Says Ted, "I think you're too late."


from Dave Allen (Irish Comedian)

So the priest is talking to the minister, and he's complaining that 
someone's stolen his bicycle.  The minister replies, "Well, I've
had things go missing too.  What I always do is to give a sermon on
the Ten Commandments, and really lay into `thou shalt not steal'.
Usually, the item just turns up by Tuesday."  The priest agrees, and
they go their separate ways.

The next week, the minster meets the priest again, and asks whether 
he got the bike back.  "Oh, yes!  I did just what you said,
and when I got to the bit about coveting thy neighbor's wife, I
remembered just where I'd left it!"


Seems this Catholic priest was feeling despondent over being posted to a
dry, desert parish.  He wrote letters to his bishop constantly, requesting
that he be posted somewhere more hospitable.  No reply to his letters ever
came, and soon the letters stopped.

Some time later, when the archbishop was making the rounds of the rural
churches, he stopped in to see how the unhappy priest was doing.  He found
a pleasant man, in an air-conditioned church.  There were no parishoners,
since the closest neighbors were many miles away.  The archbishop admitted
to some confusion, since the priest did not look like the desperate writer
of so many letters.  He asked the priest how he liked it out in the desert.

"At first I was unhappy.  But thanks to two things I have grown to love it
out here in the sparse desert."

"And they are?" the archibishop inquired.

"The first is my Rosary.  Without my Rosary I wouldn't make it a day out

"And the second?"

At this the priest looked askance.  "Well, to be honest, I have developed a
taste for martinis in the afternoon.  They help to alleviate the heat
during the worst part of the day."  He looked sheepish at this admission,
but the archbishop just smiled.

"Martinis, eh?  Well, that's not so bad.  In fact, I'd be glad to share one
with you right now, if you don't mind that is."

"Not at all!" the priest exulted.  "Let me get one for you right away."

Turning to the back of the church, the priest shouted, "Oh, Rosary..."

En un seminario el Padre Superior esta a punto de ordenar sacerdotes
a Pepe, Pepo y Pipo, pero tiene sus dudas acerca de la vocacion de estos
sujetos, asi que compra un Playboy y les dice que se aten una campanita en
ese sitio que estas pensando.

Llama a Pepe, y le ensegna la portada; inmediatamente se oye tilin,
tilin. "Que salvajada, que escandalo, vaya ahora mismo a tomar una ducha
fria, a ver si arreglamos esto".

Llama a Pepo y le ensegna la portada, pero no pasa nada, asi que le
ensegna el poster central; entonces se oye tilin, tilin y le dice "Venga,
dese una duchita fria"

Entonces llama a Pipo. Le ensegna la portada, el poster, y toda la
revista, pero no pasa nada. "Muy bien, Pipo, estoy sinceramente orgulloso de
ti. Te voy a ordenar sacerdote ahora mismo, pero antes date una ducha con
Pepe y Pepo" Tilin, tilin, tilin, tilin, tilin, tilin, tilin, tilin, tilin.

The abbot of a monastary was about to ordain three new priests, Pepe,
Pepo, and Pipo, but he had some doubts about their virtue.  So he
bought a Playboy and had them each tie on a little bell beneath their

He called in Pepe, and showed him the Playboy.  Immediately he heard
"ring, ring."  Good Lord," said the abbot, "This is terrible.  I am
ashamed of you.  I can still ordain you, but first we'll give you a
cold enema to see if we can fix this."

Next he called in Pepe, and showed him the Playboy.  Nothing happened,
so then he unfolded the centerfold, and heard "ring ring."  "A little
better," said the abbot, but it's still a cold enema for you.

Last he called in Pipo.  He showed his the cover, then the centerfold,
and the entire magazine, and didn't hear a thing.  "Excellent," said
the abbot, "I'm genuinely proud of you.  You will be ordained
immediately.  Your first job will be to give Pepe and Pepo over there
a couple of cold enemas."  Ring, ring, ring, ring....


There were three priests who were on their way to Pittsburg for a convention.
When they arrived at the train station, all three were taken aback by the 
scantily clad, BUXOM woman behind the counter.  After a brief moment of 
discussion about their shock, the self styled leader approached the counter
and said, "I want three pickets to tittsburg."  To help cover the embarassment
of his comrade, the second priest stepped in to save the day.  He handled
himself pretty well, until he said he wanted his 35 cents change as
a quarter and two nipples.  As they were leaving, the third priest decided
that he should do the christian thing and advise the young woman that
her apparel was in appropriate.  He said, "Young lady, you really need to
do something about your appearance.  If you don't, when you get to the gates
of heaven, St. Finger will shake his peter at you!"


Two Irishmen were digging a ditch accross from a brothel, and one
noticed a Rabbi walk into the place.  One said to the other, "It's a
sad day when men of the cloth walk into a place like that."  After a
little while, the other man saw a minister walk into the brothel.  He
stood up and said to his partner, "Did ya see that?  It's no wonder
the children today are so confused with the example that the clery
are settin' for them."  After about another hour, the first man saw a
Catholic preist walk in.  He promptly stood up and proclaimed to his
partner.  "Aw that is truely sad.  One of the poor lassies must be


A young Protestant couple wants to become Catholic.

"How long have you been Protestant?" asks the priest.

"All our lives."

The priest thinks a while, then replies:

"We usually have those who wish to join the faith perform some sort of 
penance to prove their sincerity.  Your penance is simple.  You and 
your wife must not make love for 30 days."

30 days later, the husband returns.

"How did it go?" asks the priest.

"Well, for the first 29 days, it was fine.  We didn't even look at 
each other.  And then, on the 30th day ...  I saw her standing over 
the freezer  ...  and I just had to.  I'm sorry, Father."

The priest frowns.  "Well, I'm afraid that this means I won't be able 
to let you into the arms of the Church."

"That's OK," says the husband.  "They won't let me in the supermarket
any more either."


                        THE PREACHER'S ASS

A preacher wanted to raise money for his church, and being told that
there was a fortune in horse racing, decided to buy one and enter him in
the races.  However, at the local auction, the going price of a horse was
so high that he bought a donkey instead.  He figured that since he had
it he might as well go ahead and enter it in the races, and to his 
surprise the donkey came in third.  The next day, the racing sheets 
carried this headline:

                      "PREACHER'S ASS SHOWS"

The preacher was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the
races again, and this time it won!  The paper read:

                      "PREACHER'S ASS OUT IN FRONT"

The bishop was so upset with this publicity that he ordered the 
preacher not to enter his donkey in another race.  The headlines read:

                      "BISHOP SCRATCHES PREACHER'S ASS"

This was too much for the bishop and he ordered the preacher to get 
rid of the animal.  The preacher decided to give it to a nun in the
nearby convent.  The headlines read:

                      "NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN"

The bishop fainted!  He informed the nun that she would have to
dispose of the donkey.  She finally found a farmer willing to buy
him for $10.  The paper read:

                      "NUN PEDDLES ASS FOR TEN BUCKS"

They buried the bishop the next day.  The headline?:

                      "NUN'S ASS KILLS BISHOP"



An  American  businessman sent one of his  public  relations 
officers to Rome to try and get the Pope to record "Give  us 
each our daily coke."  The P.R. man came back empty  handed.  
He had offered the Pope $500,000 dollars and had been turned 
down.   His  boss  commented, "Turned down  half  a  million 
bucks!  I wonder how much the bakeries are paying him?"


"A Swedish bishop was getting ready to visit USA. Some of his
close associates advised him to be careful when responding to
reporters on his arrival in New York. The bishop however was
overconfident and paid little heed to the advice. On arrival at
JFK airport, during a press conference one reporter asked
the bishop if he was planning on visiting any night clubs in New
York? The bishop replied "Are there any night clubs in New York?"
suggesting that he was ignorant of anything like night clubs in
New York.
To his surprise, the next mornings papers had the follwing banner
headlines, 'Bishop asks,"Are there any night clubs in New York?"


The pastor of a small congregation was trying to find a contractor to
paint his church.  Because the church fund was low and he couldn't pay
very much, he selected the lowest bidder.

The contractor decided to make the job pay better by skimping on
materials.  He thinned the paint with solvent and then only applied one

Within months, the poor paint job began to flake away and the church
looked worse than before the work was done.  The pastor sent a note to the
contractor that said,

"Repaint!  Repaint!  Thin no more!"


A pastor went out visiting one afternoon.  At one house he knocked on the
door several times, but no one answered.  He could see though the window
that the television was on, so he took one of his cards, wrote
"Revelations 3:20" on it and put it under the door.  ("Behold, I stand at
the door and knock; if anyone will open, I will come in.")

The following Sunday, a woman handed him a card with her name and the
following message:  "Genesis 3:10".  ("I heard thy voice and I was naked,
so I hid myself.")


One sunny Sunday in Spring, Father Fitzpatrick noticed that there was a
smaller gethering than usual for the noon service.  So as soon as the
final hymm was sung, he slipped out the back way and went along the
streeet to see who was out and about instead of coming to church.

The first person he saw was old Mrs. O'Neil, sitting on a park bench with
her cane beside her.  The good cleric sat down next to her and said, "Good
afternoon, Mrs. O'Neil, why weren't you in church today?"  Mrs. O'Neil
replied, "Well, Father, it was just such a lovely day today I didn't want
to be cooped up in that stuffy ol' church!"  The priest was a bit taken
aback by this blunt answer, so he thought for a minute, then asked, "But
Mrs. O'Neil, don't you want to go to heaven?"  To his surprise, the
elderly lady shook her head vehemently and said, "No siree!"

At that, the priest got to his feet indignantly and said firmly, "Then I
am ashamed for you!"  Now it was Mrs. O'Neil's turn to be surprised.  She
looked up at him and said, "Oh, Father, I thought you were gettin'
together a group to leave right now!"


The Pope was scheduled to visit a city and when his plane landed at the 
airport he stepped onto the tarmac to hear cries of "ELVIS ELVIS".  The 
Pope looked around to see who they were shouting at and said, "I'm the 
Pope, not Elvis. Anyway, off he went in his Popemobile, through the City
to hear people shouting, "ELVIS ELVIS".  He said, I'm the Pope, not 
Elvis, can't you see, I'm wearing the hat, the robe and the cross, I'm 
the Pope.  Anyway, he eventually got to his Hotel and as he walks into
the Lobby the Hotel Manager says, "WHOA KING".  The Pope says for the last
time, I'm the Pope not Elvis.  Looking very annoyed, the Pope goes up
to his Hotel Room and as he enters, sitting on his bed is a gorgeous
Red Head looking very seductive.  She sighs to him, "OH ELVIS"  
The Pope gets down on one knee and sings, "Wella blessa my soul, what'sa
wrong with me".


A Vicar is in the vestry with the Verger.  The Vicar says to the Verger
"For my sermon today I think I'll take the subject of 'The Widow's Might'",
the Verger turned to the Vicar and replies "Oh I wouldn't bother, there
are only two in the village and they both do."    Frankie Howerd


A priest is out for an afternoon strool and turns the corner and finds a little
boy with a hammer smashing the tar out of a bunch of ants.  The kid is saying
to himself "I hate these fucking ants...I hate these fucking ants."  

The priest is taken back by the little boy's language and talks to him and
says basically God doesn't make junk.  Tomorrow I will be coming by again and
if you can tell me three things that God created that are worthless than I will
let you continue killing the ants.

The next afternoon the priest is out again for his walk and comes upon the 
little boy smashing ants.  The priest reminds him of the agreement that they
made saying the boy agreed not to kill any more ants unless he could name three
things that God created that are worthless.

The boy looks up with a devilish smile and says "I know three things"

The first is a prick on a priest, the second is tits on a nun and the third are
these fucking ants.

One lovely day in May was Vocation Day to inspire potential priests and nuns
to the religious calling.  All the priests were concelebrating mass and the
teaching nuns were there in the front pews- behind them the prospective
religious were squirming in their seats and making spitballs out of the

Drive your karma, curb your dogma
Swami Beyondananda's Guidelines for Enlightenment

1.   Be a Fundamentalist - make sure the Fun always comes before the
     mental. Realize that life is a situation comedy that will never be
     canceled. A laugh track has been provided, and the reason why we are
     put in the material world is to get more material. Have a good
     laughsitive twice a  day, and that will ensure regularhilarity.

2.   Remember that each of us has been given a special gift - just for
     entering. So you are already a winner!

3.   The most powerful tool on the planet today is Tell-A-Vision. That is
     where I tell a vision to you, and you tell a vision to me. That way,
     if we don't like the programming we're getting, we can change the

4.   Life is like photography, you use the negative to develop. And, no
     matter what adversity you face, be reassured: Of course God loves you
     - He's just not ready to make a commitment.

5.   It is true. As we go through life thinking heavy thoughts, thought 
     particles tend to get caught between the ears, causing a condition
     called truth decay. So be sure to use mental floss twice a day. And
     when you're tempted to practice tantrum yoga, remember what we teach
     in Swami's Absurdiveness Training class: "Don't get even, get odd."

6.   If we want world peace, we must let go of our attachments and truly
     live like nomads. That's where I no mad at you, you no mad at me. That
     way, there'll surely be nomadness on the planet. And peace begins with
     each of us. A little peace here, a little peace there, pretty soon all
     the peaces will fit together to make one big peace everywhere.

7.   I know great earth changes have been predicted for the future, so if 
     you're looking to avoid earthquakes, my advice is simple. When you find
     a fault, just don't dwell on it.

8.   There's no need to change the world. All we have to do is toilet train
     the world, and we'll never have to change it again. 

9.   If you're looking to find the key to the Universe, I have some bad
     news and some good news. The bad news is - there is no key to the
     Universe. The good news is - it has been left unlocked.

10.  Finally, everything I have told you is channelled. That way, if you
     don't like it, it's not my fault. And remember, enlightenment is not
     bureaucracy. So you don't have to go through channels.


The San Jose Sharks hockey team recently sponsored a father/son night
as part of the festivities, there was a drawing, and one of the
prizes was a dinner for the winning father and son with the Sharks'
goalie, Arturs Irbe.  Well, the winning group went out to eat, and
it must have been something to see-the father, the son, and the
goalie host.


A nuncio, where they exist, has the rank of an ambassador.  While in Paris, 
Roncalli once said: "You know, it's rough being a papal nuncio. I get invited 
to these diplomatic parties where everyone stands around with a small plate 
of canapes trying not to look bored. Then, in walks a shapely woman in a 
low-cut, revealing gown, and everyone in the whole place turns around and 
looks -- AT ME!"


Best Halloween costume I ever saw:  A couple were dressed as a priest and 
nun, but carried guns, knives, grenades, ammo belts, etc.  They were 
"Clint Priestwood and Sister Mary Magnum, Vatican death-commandos."

Possible spinoff:  "Ninja Nun:"  Equipment includes steel-cable rosary for 
garrotting, and little crosses with sharp points, for throwing.


This is a sight gag.
A parachutist is about to take his first jump.  The instructor told him
to jump and pull the rip cord.  If the chute didn't open he was to
pull the emergency chute.
The jumper said but what if that chute doesn't work.  The instructor said
then pray that Allah saves you!.
He jumped, pulled the rip cord - nothing.  He pulled the emergency cord-
again nothing.  What was he to do.  He said Allah save me, Allah save me-
Just then a giant hand appeared in the sky (here is the sight gag - do it)
caught him and lowered him softly to the ground.  The jumper whewed and said
Jesus Christ - that was close. (Do this) The giant hand turned over and Splat.


Okay, you free-love atheist swine.  It's time to put down your filthy
bitmapped bimbos and your smutty newsgroups and sit up straight.
Pastor Stephan is going to save your miserable asses from eternal
damnation.  You can buy me large plots of land later.

For todays lesson we will be covering a topic of historic and
lexicographic interest.  As you know, in ancient and Biblical times
the inhabitants of the Middle East had a lot of time on their hands.
(Hence the Sons of Abraham-- three faiths [Judaism, Christianity,
Islam] sharing theology, prophets, sacred sites, and even sacred
texts-- and yet each works for the destruction and expulsion of the
other two!)  A side effect of this was tolerance for extremely long
proper names.

Amazingly enough, many of these names have entered the English
language.  And so, in the interest of spiritual enlightenment and
building power vocabularies, allow me to present...

instant almondiblathaim."

4) Kibrothhattaavah: Numbers 11:34-35, 33:16-17; Deuteronomy 9:22.  A
cute bit in the wandering of the Jews in the desert.  Chapter 11:
Everybody's in the desert.  They're getting sick of manna.  People
start wondering why they left Egypt; they ask Moses for flesh.  Moses
talks to YHVH.  YHVH promises 30 days of flesh.  YHVH send a great
cloud of quails.  People pig out.  And then:

        11:33 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere 
        it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the 
        people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.

        11:34 And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: 
        because there they buried the people that lusted.

MODERN USAGE: Fast food meat contaminated with feces.

3) Selahammahlekoth: Samuel 1 23:28.  Where Saul laid off the pursuit

but wasn't allowed to be evil long enough to ensure his reputation.

1) Mahershalalhashbaz: Isaiah 8:1, 8:3.  The child of Isaiah and "the
prophetess."  No other mention is made of this woman. The child is
used in Isaiah 8:4 as a measure of time ("For before the child shall
have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of
Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king
of Assyria")-- and is never mentioned again.  MODERN USAGE: Fruit of a
sexual relationship between a famous person and a bimbo-- when the
famous person SWEARS the relationship was purely a professional one.


A pastor was addressing the children during the Christmas service.
"Who is the mother of Jesus?" he asked them.  Without hesitation,
dozens of tiny voices chorused back "Mary."

"That's right.  Now who can tell me who is the father of Jesus?"
There was quiet and fidgeting.  After all, no one told them there
was going to be a quiz.

Then a young girl spoke up.  With assurance, she boldly announced:
"I know.  It's Virg."

After two more seconds of silence the entire community erupted in
laughter.  Of course - we all know it was Virg 'n Mary.

Un hombre tiene que ir en avion y esta terminantemente prohibido llevar 
animales, pero no puede dejar solo al canario, asi que se lo mete en el 
bolsillo del pantalon; el tio se queda dormido, y como el bolsillo tiene un 
agujero, al cabo de un rato el canario asoma por la bragueta; unas monjas que 
estaban en el asiento contiguo le despiertan contrariadas y dicen:
        -Sen~or, sen~or, no entendemos mucho de esto, pero creemos que se
        le ha roto un huevo.

Wie der Pressesprecher des Vatikans gestern mitteilte, wird nach der
Rehabilitierung von Galileo Galilei jetzt auch die Erlaubnis zur Benutzung von
Kondomen, Abtreibung, Frauen im Priesteramt, die Darwinistische Schvpfungslehre
usw. erwogen.
Ebenso wie bei Galilei ist mit der Entscheidung in ca. 350 Jahren zu rechnen.

Ein Vertreter von Coca-Cola hat Audienz beim Papst.
"Ich biete 5 Millionen, wenn Sie im Vaterunser nach dem 'tdglichen Brot'
noch 'und unser Cocal-Cola' aufnehmen !"
Der Papst: "Nein, das geht nicht."
"Also, dann 6 Millionen."
"Verlockend, aber nein, geht nicht."
"7 Millionen !"
"Nein, tut mir leid."
Der Vertreter resigniert, wendet sich zum Gehen. Da kommt er plvtzlich noch
einmal zur|ck: "Aber sagen Sie mir wenigstens, was hat der von der Bdcker-

Der Papst (Nicht der gegenwaertige...) besucht ein Dorf im
tiefsten Inneren von Afrika. Der Haeuptling begruesst ihn
mit gehoeriger Ehrfurcht und will im den Medizinmann vorstellen.
Nur ist dieser leider nicht da. Man sucht und sucht und findet
ihn auf einem ziemlich hohen Baum. 

Er weigert sich auch standhaft, vom Baum herunterzusteigen. Der
Haeuptling entschuldigt sich vielmals und will gerade auff den
Baum klettern, um den Medizinmann herunterzuholen.

Der Papst haelt ihn zurueck und sagt "Lass nur, mein Sohn, das
mache ich schon..."

Er tritt naeher zum Baum und macht mit der Hand das Zeichen des
Kreuzes. Der Medizinmann kriegt die volle Panik und klettert schnell
vom Baum herunter.

Die anderen Dorfbewohner koennen es nicht fassen und rufen
"Ein Wunder, ein Wunder!"

Der Papst schuettelt den Kopf. "Das war gar kein Wunder," sagt
er zum Haeuptling. "Der hat mich ganz genau verstanden."
"Was haben Eure Heiligkeit Ihm denn gesagt?"
Der Papst beschreibt den senkrechten Strich des Kreuzes und sagt:
"Du kommst jetzt blitzartig vom Baum herunter...", darauf den
waagrechten Strich, "... oder ich saege den Baum um."

B.: So - hier ist das Arbeitszimmer ...
P.: Fantastisch - stilistisch mvbliert ... wirklich schoen ...

etwas wiederwillig vffnet.
P.: WAAAAAAAAAS ! Das ist ja ein Doppelbett !
B.: Ja ... ich wei_ ...
P.: Sagen sie blo_ ... aehm ... Ihre Haushaelterin !?
B.: Das ist nicht so schlimm wie es ausschaut ... sehen Sie - hier habe ich ein
    Brett - einen Meter hoch ... wenn wir darin schlafen stelle ich es einfach
    mittenrein, und es gibt nichts mehr was stoeren koennte.
P.: Ahhhhh - na dann bin ich ja beruhigt. Aber sagen Sie bitte - was tun Sie
    wenn Sie doch mal die Lust |berkommt ?

    Der Bischof antwortet trocken:
    "Na - dann nehmen wir das Brett weg!"

[posted response]

J] Sie wenn Sie doch mal die Lust ueberkommt ?

J]     "Na - dann nehmen wir das Brett weg!"

 Das erinnerte mich an einen alten, der aehnlich beginnt:

 Papst  : Mein Sohn, eine solch huebsche Haushaelterin und ein
          Doppelbett? Wie passt denn das zusammen? Was tust Du,
          mein Sohn, wenn Dich die Fleischeslust einmal

 Bischof: Nun, ich rufe meinen Hund und gehe mit ihm einige
          Stunden spazieren, bis die Anzeichen sich legen.

 Papst  : Und was tut Dein Haushaelterin, wenn SIE die
          Fleischeslust ueberfaellt?

 Bischof: Nun ja, dann ist SIE an der Reihe, den Hund ein wenig

 Papst  : Und wenn Euch beiden einmal GLEICHZEITIG die
          Fleischeslust heimsucht?

 Bischof: Auch daran haben wir gedacht, heiliger Vater.
          Mittlerweile kennt der Hund den Weg ganz alleine.


  Ein Mann stirbt und kommt in die Hoelle. Irgendwie ist aber alles
ganz anders als er es sich vorgestellt hat: Er bekommt ein Zimmer
in einem luxurioesen Hotel zugewiesen, das Service ist erstklassig,
Sauna, Swimming Pool, Minibar, alles da... Irgendwie kommt ihm die
Sache spanisch vor und er erkundigt sich ganz diskret beim
Hotelmanager ob er denn hier auch richtig ist, weil man hat ihm
gesagt das waere die Hoelle und das kann ja wohl nicht ganz stimmen...
Der Manager versichert ihm aber, dass alles seine Richtigkeit hat.

  Gut, bis zum Abendessen ist noch ein bisschen Zeit, also macht er
einen Spaziergang durch den Park. Sonnenschein, bluehende Wiesen,
murmelnde Baechlein -- er kann immer noch nicht glauben, dass das die
Hoelle sein soll. Schliesslich kommt er am Rand des Parks zu einer
hohen Mauer, die geht er entlang und findet schliesslich ein kleines
Loch, wo er nach draussen schauen kann -- ein furchtbarer Anblick!!
Ueberall Flammen, Loecher mit siedendem Oel, kleine rote Teufel mit
Hoernern und spitzen Schwaenzen sausen herum, und wohin man schaut
werden irgendwelche armen Seelen aufs Perverseste gefoltert!

  Jetzt ist er natuerlich ueberzeugt, dass er am falschen Ort gelandet
ist und eilt zurueck zum Hotel um das Missverstaendnis aufzuklaeren.
Er erzaehlt ganz aufgeregt dem Hotelmanager was er gesehen hat, aber
der grinst nur und sagt: "Ach machen Sie sich keine Sorgen, was Sie
gesehen haben, ist nur unsere Spezialabteilung fuer Katholiken --
die *wollen* das so!"

Sister Maria: "I would lift my habit, mother Superior."
Mother Superior (shocked): "And what would you do next?"

runs ahead to sign the book.  However, his mother stops him and admonishes him
saying,  "Wait till the nun signs Shelly!"


It was Friday, and four nuns went to the priest at the local Catholic church to
ask for the weekend off. They argued back and forth for a few minutes. Finally
the priest agreed to let them leave the convent for the weekend. "However", he
said, "as soon as you get back Monday morning I want you to confess to me what
you did over the weekend." The four nuns agree, and run off.

Monday comes, and the four nuns return. The first nun goes to the priest and
says, "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned." The priest asks, "What did you
do, Sister?" She replies, "I watched an R-rated movie." The priest looks up at
heaven for a few seconds, then replies, "You are forgiven. Go and drink the
holy water." The first nun leaves, and the fourth nun begins to chuckle quietly
under her breath.

The second nun then goes up to the priest and says, "Forgive me , Father, for I
have sinned." The priest replies, "OK, what happened?" She says, "I was driving
my brother's car down the street in front of his house, and I hit a neighbors
dog and killed it." The priest looks up to heaven for half a minute, then says,
"You are forgiven. Go and drink the holy water." The second nun goes out. By
this time, the fourth nun is laughing quite audibly.

Then the third nun walks to the priest and says, "Forgive me, Father, for I
have sinned." The priest asks, "Out with it. What did you do?" She says, "Last
night, I ran naked up and down Main Street." The priest looks up at heaven for
a full five minutes before responding, "God forgives you. Go and drink the holy
water." She leaves. The fourth nun falls on the floor, laughing so hard tears
run down her cheeks.

The priest asks her, "OK. What did you do that was so bloody funny?"

The nuns at the local convent had their daily annoucement session.

The seven dwarfs are in Rome and they go on a tour of the city.
After a while they go to the Vatican and meet the pope.  Grumpy, for once, 
seems to have a lot to say; he keeps asking the pontiff questions about
the church, and in particular, nuns.
	"Your Holiness, do you have any really short nuns?"
	"No, my son, all our nuns are at least five feet tall."
	"Are you sure?  I mean, you wouldn't have any nuns that are, say, 
	 about my height?  Maybe a little shorter?"
	"I'm afraid not.  Why do you ask?"
	"No reason."  Pause.  "Positive?  Nobody in a habit that's about
	 three feet tall, two and a half feet tall?"
	"I'm sure."
Grumpy looks dejected at this news, and the pope wonders why.
So he listens to the dwarfs as they leave the building.
	"What'd he say?  What'd he say?"  chant the other six dwarfs.
	Grumpy says, "He said they don't have any."
	And the other six start chanting, "Grumpy fucked a penguin!  Grumpy
	fucked a penguin!  Grumpy fucked a penguin!"....


A nun is undressing for a bath and while she's standing naked
there's a knock at the door.
The nun calls: "Who is it?"
a voice answers: "A blind man".
The nun decides to get a thrill by having the blind man in
the room while she's naked so she lets him in.
The man walks in, looks straight at the nun and says:
"Corrrrrrrrrrrr, and can I sell you a blind dearie...?"


One day a nun was fishing and caught a huge fish for supper.  A man was walking
by and said "Wow what a goddamn fish!"  The sister said "Sir you shouldn't talk
to me like that: I'm a nun", and the man said "But that's the name of it:
a goddamn fish".  So the sister took the fish back to the rectory and said
"Mother superior, look at the goddamn fish I caught."  The mother superior
said "Sister, you shouldn't talk like that!", and the sister said "But mother
superior, that's the name of it: a goddamn fish".  So the mother superior said
"Well give me the goddamn fish and I'll clean it."  While she was cleaning the
fish the monsignor walked in and she said "Monsignor look at the goddamn fish
that the sister caught."  The monsignor said "Mother superior you shouldn't
talk like that!", and the mother superior said "But that's the name of it:
a goddamn fish".  So the monsignor said "Well give me the goddamn fish and
I'll cook it".  That evening at supper there was a new priest at the table,
and he said  "Wow what a nice fish".   And the sister said "I caught the
goddamn fish."  And mother superior said "I cleaned the goddamn fish".  And
the monsignor said "I cooked the goddamn fish".  And the new priest said:
"I like this fucking place already!"


A nun and a priest were traveling across the desert and realized halfway 
across that the camel they were using for transportation was about to die. 
They set up a make-shift camp, hoping someone would come to their rescue, 
but to no avail. Soon the camel died.

After several days of not being rescued, they agreed that they were not going 
to be rescued. They prayed a lot (of course), and they discussed their 
predicament in great depth.

Finally the priest said to the nun, "You know, Sister, I am about to die, and 
there's always been one thing I wanted here on earth - to see a woman naked. 
Would you mind taking off your clothes so I can look at you?"

The nun thought about his request for several seconds and then agreed to take 
off her clothes. As she was doing so, she remarked, "Well, Father, now that I 
think about it, I've never seen a man naked, either. Would you mind taking off 
your clothes, too?"

With little hesitation, the priest also stripped. Suddenly the nun exclaimed, 
"Father! What is that little thing hanging between your legs?"

The priest patiently answered, "That, my child, is a gift from God. If I put 
it in you, it creates a new life."

"Well," responded the nun, "forget about me. Stick it in the camel!"


A man is driving down a deserted stretch of highway, when he notices a
sign out of the corner of his eye.  It says SISTERS OF MERCY HOUSE OF
PROSTITUTION 10 MILES.  He thinks it was just a figment of his
imagination and drives on without a second thought.  Soon, he sees
and realizes that these signs are for real.  When he drives past a third
curiosity gets the best of him and he pulls into the drive.  
On the far side of the parking lot is a somber stone building with a
small sign next to the door reading SISTERS OF MERCY.  He climbs the
steps and rings the bell.  The door is answered by a nun in a long black
habit who asks "What may we do for you, my son?"  He answers "I saw your
signs along the highway, and was interested in possibly doing business."
"Very well, my son.  Please follow me." 

He is led through many winding passages and is soon quite disoriented.
The nun stops at a closed door, and tells the man "Please knock on this
door." He does as he is told and this door is answered by another nun in
a long habit and holding a tin cup.  This nun instructs "Please place
$50 in the cup, then go through the large wooden door at the end of this
hallway."  He gets $50 out of his wallet and places it in the second
nun's cup.  He trots eagerly down the hall and slips through the door,
pulling it shut behind him.  As the door locks behind him, he finds
himself back in the parking lot, facing another small sign: GO IN PEACE,


Sister Catherine is asking all the Catholic school children in fourth
grade what they want to be when they grow up.  Little Sheila says:
"When I grow up, I want to be a prostitute!" Sister Catherine's eyes
grow wide and she barks:  "What the (beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeb) did you say?"
"A prostitute!" Sheila repeats. Sister Catherine breathes a sight of
relief and says:  "Thank God!  I thought you said a Protestant"

A nun gets on a bus and sits behind the driver.  She says to the bus driver
she is very ill and wants to experience sex before she dies.  The bus driver
agrees to accomodate her, but the nun explains that she can't have sex with
anyone who is married as that would be a sin.  The bus driver says No problem,
he is not married.  The nun says she also has to die a virgin, so she will have
to take it in the ass.  The bus driver agrees again. Being the only two on the
bus, they go to the back of the bus and take care of business.
When they were done, and he had resumed driving, he said "Sister, I have a
confession to make.  I am married and have three children".  The nun replies:
"Thats OK.  I have a confession too:  My name is Dave, and I am on my way
to a costume party".


This raggedy-assed old nun was walking home from the convent one day, when 
this man jumps out from the bushes and has his way.  When he was finished,
the man asked her, "What will you tell the Holy Father now, Sister?"
She says, "I must tell the truth!  I will say I was walking home
from the convent when a man jumped out from the bushes and raped
me twice, unless you're tired."


Did you hear the one about the man who opened a dry-cleaning business
next door to the convent?  He knocked on the door and asked the Mother
Superior if she had any dirty habits.


Three nuns are walking down the street, when a man jumps out and flashes them.
The first nun has a stroke, the second nun has a stroke, the third one
didn't touch him.


There was this Irish nun sitting on the curb, sipping a bottle o' stout
and obviously drunk out of her mind. The town constable walked up to her
and said, "Sure, now sister Colleen, and why'd ya be doing a thing like
this?" The sister replied, "Oh now, it's not fer me-self I done it sir.
I done it fer the mother superior to cure her constipation." The
perplexed policeman looked askance at this and asked, "And how might it
be that yer present state could have anything to do with the mother
superior's constipation?" To which sister Colleen said, "When she sees
me this way, she'll be shittin a brick."


A priest decides to pay a visit to a nearby convent. The convent is in a 
run-down neighborhood, and as the priest walks down the street several 
prostitutes approach and proposition him, "Twenty bucks a trick!"
These solicitations embarass the priest who lowers his head and hurries on 
until he gets to the convent.  Once inside he displays his naivete by asking 
the Mother Superior, "What is a trick?"
She answers, "Twenty bucks -- just like on the outside!"


A nun is driving her (well, the convent's) car through some very
lonely countryside. The car stops and she notices there is no petrol
left. So she walks to the nearest filling station. But of course, being
a nun, she is a little unworldly, and so she forgot to take along the
canister for the petrol. The nice guy at the filling station has no canister
either. He thinks for a while, then he hands her a chamber-pot full
of petrol. The nun walks back to her car and starts pouring the 
petrol into the tank. A bypassing car stops, and the driver looks out
and says:
"Sister, how I would like to have as much faith as you do!"

During a blizzard, a parishinor of a Milwaukee parish was in a bad accident 
near Green Bay.  The priest and nun from Milwaukee were driving up to the 
hospital the victim was in, in case last rites were necessary.  As they were 
driving, the storm got worse and worse. Finally they decided they would have 
to stop for the night because the roads were so bad.  The only motel they 
could find was already full of stranded travellers.  The clerk told the priest 
"Since you are a priest and all, I will give you a room for the night, but I 
just can't give you each a separate room, you will have to make do with two 
beds in one room."  The priest thanked him and payed for the room.  during the
night, the power went out, and the heat went out with it. Luckily there were a 
lot of blankets is the closet.  After a while, the nun asked, father, father, 
I'm cold--so the priest got another blanket and put it on her.  After a while 
longer, she said "father, I'm cold, can you get me another blanket," so he did.
After a while, she again asked for a blanket.  This time the priest responded 
"I think in the situation we should pretend to be husband and wife in order to 
keep warm."  The nun was stunned and didn't think it was appropriate, but he 
was the priest, so she really couldn't argue.  She said "O.K., father, if you 
are sure its proper we can pretend to be husband and wife"  to which he 


A group on nuns are travelling in a car when it has a flat tire. They get 
out and try to change it, but being rather unworldly do not know how to do 
it.  Luckily, a truck came along and the (male) driver offered to change 
it for them.  They gladly accepted.  As the trucker jacked up the car, it 
slipped from the jack and he yelled, "Son-of-a-bitch!"

The eldest nun said to him,"That is not nice language. We understand that
you are upset, but you mustn't use such language."

"Sorry, Sister", he said, and tried again. Again it slipped, this time 
almost mashing his fingers.  "Son-of-a-bitch", he yelled again.

"Please, don't use such language. If changing our tire is causing you to do 
so, it would be better if you didn't help us."

"But I get so upset, and it just comes out."

"Well," said the nun, "say something else when you get upset, something 
like 'Sweet Jesus, help me'".

So the trucker tried to jack up the car again. Again it slipped. He started 
to say "So..", but he corrected himself and said, "Sweet Jesus help me."

At that, the car just lifted up into the air by itself. The nuns looked
at the car and said, "Son-of-a-bitch!"


I believe in this and it has been proven by research:
He who fucks nuns will later join the church.

Three novices in a nunnery were in their nightly bull-session, and the 
conversation went to what might have happened if they had not decided to 
take holy orders.

First novice: "I think I would have become a school teacher."  The others 
said that was very nice; teaching children is important. 

Second novice: "I would have liked to be a nurse." That's also a fine, 
useful profession, said the others.

Third novice: "I think I would have become a prostitute."  At this, the 
others gasped and fainted dead away!  When the third novice revived the 
others, she apologized for shocking them so.  "I shouldn't have come out 
so suddenly to say I would have become a prostitute."

"Oh", said the others, "a prostitute.  We thought you said protestant."

Saying, "I'm much too GOOD for you, son!"


It's allright to kiss a nun, just don't get into the habit.....


"When I see a monk's ass I just grab it."
Said the lazily amorus abbot.
"Although its more fun
to have sex with a nun,
its so hard to get into the habit!"


Did you here about the pharmaceutical company? They developed a new drug
that, when administered to women, compels them to go join a convent.

The FDA refused to licence it, though. Seems it was habit-forming.


A nun goes to confession, ".....oh Father, I am ashamed, I was golfing with 
the other sisters, and said the "F" word.

"Oh Sister, what made you say the 'F' word?"

"Well I teed off the 5th hole, and sliced it into the woods"

"Sister, for that you said the "F" word?"

"Oh no, I got out of that mess ok, only to land in a sand trap."

"Sister, for that you said the 'F' word?"

"Oh no! I got a good hit out of the trap, it bounced on the green, and rolled 
into the trap on the other side"

"Sister, for that you said the 'F' word?"

"Oh no, I hit it out of the trap, and came up 6 inches from the hole"

"Oh Sister, for that you said the "F" word?"

"Oh heavens no Father"

Then the priest cuts in and asks "Sister, don't tell me you missed a F*@!!@*
six inch putt!!"


Three nuns were walking along the street and one was describing with her hands
the tremendous grapefruit she'd seen in Florida.

The second one, also with her hands, described the huge banana she'd seen in

The third nun, a little deaf, asked, "Father who?"


A few nuns are riding bicycles.  After a while they stop, Mother
Superior gets off the bike and says, "all right, enough for today, now
we put the seats on! "


Un par de monjas llaman a la puerta de una casa y les abre una nin~a
        -Nos podrian dar algo para el asilo?
        -Abueelo, sal!

Two nuns knock on the front door, and a child opens it:
   "Can you give us something for our charity asylum?"
   "Sure!, Hey, grandpa, come here!"


Dos monjas encargadas de hacer la compra en un convento de clausura salen 
con el coche del convento y al doblar la esquina se encuentran con la misma 
pareja de la guardia civil de trafico. Uno de ellos se desabotona la bragueta 
y una de las monjas dice:
        -Vaya hombre, otra vez la prueba del alcohol.

The two nuns in charge of shopping for a cloistered convent are
driving in their car, and as they turn a corner, they are spotted by
the traffic cops.  The officer steps up to the car and looks inside,
then he begins unbuttoning his fly.  One nun looks at the other nun
and says, "Oh man... not another breathalyzer test..."


There were three little girls who where attending a Catholic grammar school.
One day during class the nun caught them laughing while she was teaching.
The nun became quite angry and told them that she wanted to see them after

After class, Sister Mary told the three little girls that she was going to
give them a quiz on religion. She asked the first girl if she knew which
part of the body was the holiest.  The first little girl thought awhile.
Then the little girl said, "Well Sister Mary, the holiest part of the body
is the hands."  And then the little girl put both her hands together as
though she she going to pray and continued, "It's because we use are hands
while we pray to God." Sister Mary nodded.

Then the nun asked the second little girl, "What part of the body do you
think is the holiest part of the body?"  The second little girl said, "Well
Sister, the head has to be the holiest part of the body."  Pointing to her
head, she continued, "It's the part of the body that has the mind, so all
our souls are in our heads."  Again the nun just nodded.

"Well", the Sister said to the third little girl, "and what do you think is
the holiest part of the body?"  The little girl was excited and said, "The
feet are the holiest part of the body!" The Sister was puzzled and asked why
she thought the feet where the holiest part of the body.  The little girl
continued, "Well Sister Mary, last night I was walking past my parent's
bedroom door and I saw mommy with both her feet pointing in the air and
daddy was on top of her trying to keep her down while mommy was screaming,
'Oh my God!  I'm coming, I'm coming!!'"


There was a Nun who kept saying BLOODY.  Every second word she said was
bloody.  The other Nuns weren't too happy about this so they decided
that next time Sister says bloody all the Nuns would get up and walk
out, nothing would be said, just up and out.

The next day Sister runs in and says, "the Bloody American fleet has just 
bloody well come bloody in.  All the Nuns get up and walk without saying
a word.  Sister shouts back after them and says, "you don't have to bloody 
run they'll be here for a bloody week".


A nun was walking in the convent when one of the Fathers noticed she was
gaining a little weight. "Gaining a little weight are we sister Susan?",
he asked. "Oh no, Father. Just a little gas." Sister Susan explained, matter-
of-factly. A month or so later the Father noticed that she had gained even
more weight. "Gaining some weight are we Sister Susan?", he asked again.
"Oh no, Father. Just a little gas." She replied again. A couple of months
later the Father noticed Sister Susan pushing a baby carraige around the
convent. He leaned over and looked in the carraige and said,
"Cute little fart."


Two Nuns were out driving in the countryside, one was a Mother Superior
and the other was a Novice.  As they were driving along the Novice
turned to the Mother Superior and said, "isn't this countryside known
for having Vampires?".  The Mother Superior said, "yes, but we will be
okay".  Just as she said that an enormous Vampire landed on the roof
of their car, with large fangs dripping blood, it started to demolish
the roof of the car. The young Novice screams out, "what'll we do, 
what'll we do?"  The Mother Superior screams, "quick get out and show 
him your cross".  The Novice gets out and goes to the Vampire,
"if you don't get off that BLOODY roof, I'm gonna rip your BLOODY 
arms off".

A Jewish couple have a Son who is a bit troublesome: at age five he starts 
in school, and pretty soon, his parents get to hear that things aren't going 
well. After a couple of months, they are asked to "take him out of school", 
since he is not setting a good example to the other Jewish children.

Things go from bad to worse: after only a month in reform school he's thrown 
out again, and even the state correction center can't deal with him.

Eventually, in desparation, the parents take him to the only place left: a 
local Catholic school. The don't hear anything concerning his performance, no 
reports of trouble, but their curiosity is really aroused when he comes home 
at the end of the term with a report card showing three B's and the rest A's.

Things continue in the same vein, and at the end of the second term, he's 
running straight A's, and by the end of the school year, his performance has 
been so good that he is head of the class list.

His mother taks him aside and asks, "What's going on?  We send you to your 
own people, and they throw you out.  The reform school can't deal with you, 
and even the state correction center wasn't enough. But now, with these 
Catholics, you're getting the best grades ever."

"Well momma," says the boy "I wasn't too bothered by those other places,
but the first thing I see when I go into that Catholic school is a Jewish
kid nailed to a cross. I know when to back down...."


A very religious man lived right next door to an atheist. While the
religious one prayed day in, day out, and was constantly on his knees in
communion with his Lord, the atheist never even looked twice at a
church. However, the atheist's life was good, he had a well-paying job
and a beautiful wife, and his children were healthy and good-natured,
whereas the pious man's job was strenuous and his wages were low, his
wife was getting fatter every day and his kids wouldn't give him the
time of the day. So one day, deep in prayer as usual, he raised his eyes
towards heaven and asked:
"Oh God, I honor you every day, I ask your advice for every problem and
confess to you my every sin. Yet my neighbour, who doesn't even believe
in you and certainly never prays, seems blessed with every happiness,
while I go poor and suffer many an indignity. Why is this?"
And a great voice was heard from above:
"B E C A U S E   H E   D O E S N ' T   B O T H E R   M E

A man was walking down the street when he sees a boy with a wagon full
of kittens going in the opposite direction.  The man stops the boy, talks
to him for a minute and then asks, "What kind of kittens are those?"

The boy replies without missing a beat, saying, "Them's [insert least
favorite religion] kittens!"  The man is puzzled, but not wanting to 
get into a theological debate with a 5 year old, decides not to press
for more information.

About two weeks later, the man runs into the boy, who also happens to be
pulling the wagon full of kittens.  The man asks the boy, "What kind of
kittens did you say they were?"

They boy responds, "Them's [insert favorite religion] kittens!"

The man, struck by the change in answers decides to inquire further,
"But two weeks ago, you said that they were [insert least favorite 

The boy replies, "They were, but now they got their eyes open!"


                                  BIBLE HUMOR
                      Edgar Pearlstein, Lincoln, Nebraska

 To appreciate this as humor, you have to imagine yourself and your companions
 as the biblical-days equivalent of a group of racist, sexist, good-old-boys
 hanging out at the general store:
     Abraham was a sly fellow.  When he went to Egypt he spread word that his
 beautiful wife, Sarah, was actually his sister.  This led the Pharoah to give
 Abraham lots of gifts, as part of his wooing of Sarah.  Poor Pharoah got
 punished by the god for taking Sarah, but he was really an innocent victim of
 Abraham's lying.  When Pharoah found out about the deception, he didn't kill
 Abraham; he merely sent him and Sarah away and didn't even take back the
 gifts!  (Genesis 12:20)  The scam worked so well that Abraham pulled it again
 with another king, Abimelich (Genesis 20), who was sucker enough to give
 Abraham still more wealth (Genesis 20:14).  Honest Abe!
     Abraham must have told his son Isaac about all this, for Isaac pulled
 almost the same stunt (Genesis 26:6-14), apparently with the same Abimelich,
 who must have been a real dunce.
     Abraham dickered with the god about how many righteous people in Sodom it
 would take to justify sparing it (Genesis 18:22-32).  This has to be the
 first recorded case of what is now pejoratively called "Jewing-down".
     When Lot was a very old man, he had sex with his daughters, and they both
 became pregnant (Genesis 19:31-38).  According to the Bible, Lot was a
 "righteous man" (2 Peter 2:8), and the excuse for his committing incest was
 that he was so drunk at the times that he didn't know what he was doing.
 Performing sexually while very old and dead drunk?  If you believe that,
 you'll believe anything.
     A girl gets raped, and because she is too stunned to cry out, is herself
 punished (Deut 22:24).  (A big "hee-hee" for the male chauvinists!)
     David wanted to have Saul's daughter for a wife.  Saul demanded as
 payment 100 Philistine foreskins.  David instead got him 200 (1 Samuel 18:25-
 27).  Gross!
     David, a really horny character, got a peek at Bathsheba bathing herself,
 and had the hots for her.  But she was already married to Uriah.  So David
 arranged to have her husband sent off to war and get killed, in order that
 he, David, could have her.  Now that's worth a couple of snickers, but it
 gets even better: the god didn't like that, so he punished David by having
 all his wives raped in public! (II Samuel 11:2-12:12).  A real knee-slapper!
     Did the god MOON Moses?  (Exodus 33:23) Look it up!
     Judah had sex with his daughter-in-law, thinking she was a whore.  When
 he later found out who she was, he wanted her to be burned to death.  But she
 outsmarted him by proving that it was he who had sex with her (Genesis 38:13-
 27).  So here was a case where the woman outsmarted the man.  Yuk yuk; who
 said those bible-day boys couldn't laugh at themselves?
     Ruth, upon Naomi's instructions, sidled up to Boas at night in order to
 gain favors (Ruth 3:3-18). (giggle).  Another case where a woman gets the
 better of a man.
     Jesus preached that we should give to the poor.  But he dismissed that
 idea when his own comfort was at stake, with the wisecrack "The poor ye have
 with you always" (Mark 14:7, Matthew 26:11, John 12:8).  It's always a good
 guffaw when a pious one commits hypocrisy.  And it's doubly funny when that
 person is fond of calling other people hypocrites!
     Jesus was hungry, and came upon a fig tree.  Unfortunately, there wasn't
 any fruit on the tree, since it was the wrong time of the year.  Jesus got so
 furious that he cursed the tree!  (Matthew 21:18-20, Mark 11:12-21)  Can you
 picture that?  (The tree up and died, but there is no indication that the
 curse on fig trees lasted "to the tenth generation", as did some biblical

Finally! Having the right comeback line when the opportunity presented

My wife was reading a fascinating article about the religious practices 
of the Incas and as an entree into making me aware of the contents said, 
"Do you know why the Incas practiced human sacrifice?"  To which I replied,
"To get to the other side!"


Some time ago, a man lost his wife to illness.   He handled it fairly
well, considering he had just lost his lifelong partner, but after a few
months he found himself aching to talk to her just one more time.  So, he
first goes to a [insert least favorite religion] church and tells the 
pastor of his dillema.  "Please, sir, if there is any way I could possibly 
talk with my wife just one more time, I would be eternally satisfied."  
The Pastor sympathizes and gives the man a phone number for a direct line 
to Heaven.  The man couldn't wait to call when he got home, so he called 
from the church.  It was wonderful to hear his wife's beautiful voice 
again, but he didn't want to ring up too much of a bill, so they only 
talked for a 1/2 hour.  Afterwards the man asked the pastor how much it 
would cost him.  The pastor replied, "A mere $2000."  The man was surprised 
at how much it cost him, but he figured it was worth it, so he paid it.

Two weeks later, he was experiencing the same aching feeling, so he went 
to call his wife again, but this was the last time for sure.  He just 
wanted to say a proper goodbye.  This time he went to the [insert favorite
religion here].  The pastor gave him the same number as the [least favorite
religion] pastor did.  This time he and his wife talked for one whole hour.  
He was anticipating a huge bill, and had stopped by the bank on the way to
withdraw money.  He asked the pastor how much it would cost, and the
pastor replied, "A mere $200."  The man was flabbergasted.  He exclaimed,
"Why, sir, is it that the [least favorite religion] church charged me $2000 
for half an hour and you, the [favorite religion] church charged me only 
$200 for twice the time?!?"  The pastor replied, "Well, it is because we 
are that much closer to Heaven than the [least favorite religion] church."


Become a Catholic, be led by sexual perverts, engage in ritual canibalism,
and pretend that the Trinity is really one god so you can claim to be
monotheistic (at least when talking to the comatose...).


Estan presentando a dos personas.
        - Vaya, su apellido es raro pero me suena ; creo que en mi colegio

        - Pues no se, cual era su nombre ?
        - Huy, pues no me acuerdo... nosotros la llamabamos siempre madre.
        - Pues claro que es pariente mio; es el nombre de mi mama.

Two people are talking:
   --"You know, your family name is pretty unusual, but I could swear
that in my school there was a nun by the same name.  Could she be a
relative of yours?"
   --"Well, I don't know.  What was her first name?"
   --"Ay, well, I can't remember... we always called her "mother".

An old Jewish beggar was out on the street, begging with his tin cup.  A
man passed by and the beggar said to the man, "Sir, could you spare 3
cents for a cup of coffee?"

And the man said, "Where do get coffee for 3 cents?"

And the beggar said, "Who buys retail?"


A christian and an atheist were on death row.  It so happens that they
were both scheduled to be executed on the same morning.  The warden asked
the christian, "Do you have any last requests?"

The christian replied:  "Yes I would love to hear the song "Amazing Grace"
before I die."

"That is not unreasonable," the warden replied, "We can play it many times
over the loudspeakers right up to the moment..."

Then the warden turned to the atheist and asked, "Do you have any final

"Yes," the atheist replied, "Can I go first?"


An old Armenian is dying; his entire family is gathered around him. When
he comes to, he asks everybody but his eldest son to leave. When they
are alone, he says: "Look after the Jews". Son, taken aback, says:
"Father, don't you have anything more important to say to me at this
moment?" The father repeats: "Look after the Jews: when they are done
for, it will be our turn."

A TV researcher is making a documentary about religion and needs some
information about the collections.  First he goes to see a Protestant
Vicar.  He says "I'm making a programme about religion and I wanted
to know how you share out your collection".  The vicar says "Well I get
all the money on a big plate and share it out - one for me, one for
God, one for me, one for God".  The researcher thanks the vicar and goes
to see a Catholic Priest.  He tells the Priest what the vicar does and then
asks the same question and the Priest says "Oh no I haven't got time for
all that.  I get all the money on a plate and then get a big knife and cut
right down the middle and one half is for God and one half is for me".  The
researcher thanks the vicar and goes to see a Jewish Rabbi.  He tells the
Rabbi what the Vicar and Priest do and asks the same question again.  The
Rabbi says "Oh no I haven't got time for all that, I get all the money on
a plate and throw it all up into the air and what stays up goes to God and
what comes down goes to me".  Frankie Howerd


One day a Catholic priest goes to a barber for a haircut. After the
haircut, he asks the barber how much he owes.  The barber says, "For a
man of the cloth, the haircut is free!"

The priest thinks "What a nice man!"  The next day the barber finds
a case of wine outside his shop.

Then, a minister comes in for a haircut.  Again, the barber tells him that the
haircut is free.  The minister thinks "What a nice man!"  The next day,

Then, a rabbi comes in for a haircut.  Again, the barber gives the haircut
on-the-house. The rabbi thinks "what a nice man!"  The next day, the barber

Two Jewish guys are walking down the street, and one decides that he needs a 
new suit. So they stop in at Pinkus the Tailor, and ask to see a suit. Pinkus 
takes one out from the back, and says "this is the latest fashion, and it's a 
bargain!". The guy buying asks if it is available in black, Pinkus says "Of 
course", so the guy buys it. As he leaves, he reminds Pinkus to make the suit 
in black. The next week, the two Jewish guys go back to Pinkus to pick up the 
suit. The buyer looks at it very closely, and says "I think this is dark blue, 
not black!" Pinkus assures him that it is, indeed, black. So the guy pays, 
puts on the suit, and they leave the store. However, he remains 
  As they walk down the street, the guy in the new suit says "I have an idea 
about how we can check the suit... there are two nuns coming towards us, in 
their habits. Let's kind of push up against them, and we can check if the suit 
is black."
  So as the two Jewish guys passed the nuns, they pushed up against them, and 
they all fell down together. The Jewish guys looked at the nuns, the nuns 
looked at the Jewish guys, and they parted without saying a word.
  The first nun turns to the other and says "I wonder what that was all 
about?". The second nun says "I know they looked Jewish, but I wasn't sure." 
  "Why not?"
  "Because one of them spoke Latin."
  "Latin? How? What did he say?"
  "I didn't catch all of it, but what I heard sounded like 'Pinkus Fuckedus'"!


There was an elderly southern widow who lived in a large mansion.  She
was feeling generous when it came to thanksgiving, so she called up
the local military base, and asked to speak with the lieutenant.

"Please send up four nice young men to eat dinner here on
thanksgiving, but please, don't send any jews.  Please, no jews."

The lieutenant replied, "No problem ma'am, and I am sure I speak for 
the army when I say we all appreciate your kindness."

Well, thanksgiving rolled around, and the widow went to answer the door
when it rang.  She was surprised to see four of the blackest boys that 
anyone had ever seen, especially in the south.

"But...  But..  There must be some mistake"  she stammered.

One of them replied, "No ma'am, lieutenant Goldstein doesn't make mistakes"
