MAD DAD’S JOKE OF THE DAY (ALTERED BYMADPRIEST FOR THE AMERICAN AUDIENCE)

An elderly Italian, spinster lady who lived on the outskirts of Rimini, Italy, went to the local church for confession.

When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the woman said: "Father, I've had something on my conscience for many years. During World War II, a young, handsome Jewish man from our neighbourhood knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide him from the Nazis. So I hid him in my attic."

The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no need to confess that."

"There is more to tell, Father. He started to repay me with sexual favours. This happened several times a week, and sometimes twice on Sundays.'

The priest said, "That was a long time ago and by doing what you did, you placed the two of you in great danger, but two people under those circumstances can easily succumb to the weakness of the flesh. However, if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven."

"Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. I do have one more question."

"And what is that?" asked the priest.

"Should I tell him the war is over?"

  1. My WW2 vet dad liked it too (after I repeated the punchline a couple of times. 91 year-old, WW2 vet ears…)

  2. It was a man in Mad Dad’s original. If I had posted that I would have been accused of racism and sexism. Simply by changing the sex of the protagonist it becomes acceptable to all. It’s a funny old world.
