PostHeaderIcon Adultery and Sidewalks!

An old priest soon got sick of all the people in his parish who kept

confessing to adultery. One Sunday, in the pulpit, he said, “If I hear one

more person confess to adultery, I’ll quit!” Well, everyone liked him, so

they came up with a code word. Someone who had committed adultery would say

they had “fallen”.

This seemed to satisfy the old priest and things went well, until the priest

died at a ripe old age. About a week after the new priest arrived, he

visited the mayor of the town and seemed very concerned. The priest said,

“You have to do something about the sidewalks in town. When people come into

the confessional, they keep talking about having fallen.”

The mayor started to laugh, realising that no-one had told the new priest

about the code word. But before the mayor could explain, the priest shook an

accusing finger at him and said, “I don’t know what you’re laughing about,

your wife’s already fallen three times this week!”
