A married Irishman went to the confessional and said to the priest ” I almost had an affair”
The priest asked ” What do you mean by almost affair?”.
The Irishman said ” Well I got undressed and rubbed together but then I stopped”.
The priest said “Rubbing together is the same as putting it in”.
You’re not to see that woman again and as penance you will say five Hail Marys and put $10 into the box for the poor.
The Irishman left the confessional, said his prayers and walked over to the poor box, paused for a moment and then started to leave.
The priest who was watching this quickly ran over to him and said
” I saw that. You didn’t put any money into the box.”
The Irishman replied ” Yeah but I rubbed the $10 between the box and according to you, that’s the ad putting it in!”
