Friday Joke: The New Priest

I remember hearing this joke in my youth - from a priest, no less - and thought I'd share it in the hope of brightening everyone's Friday. So, enjoy!

The new priest was so nervous at his first mass, he could hardly speak. Before his second appearance in the pulpit he asked the Monsignor how he could relax. The Monsignor said, "Next Sunday, it may help if you put some vodka in the water pitcher. After a few sips, everything should go smoothly." The next Sunday, the new priest put the suggestion into practice and was able to talk up a storm. He felt great. However, upon returning to the rectory, he found a note from the Monsignor. It read:
  1. Next time, sip rather than gulp.
  2. There are 10 commandments, not 12.
  3. There are 12 Disciples, not 10.
  4. We do not refer to the cross as the big "T".
  5. The recommended grace before meals is not "Rub-a-dub-dub, thanks for the grub, yaaaaaaaay Lord!"
  6. Do not refer to our savior, Jesus Christ and his apostles as "J.C. and The Boys".
  7. David slew Goliath. He did not "kick the shit out of him."
  8. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are never referred to as "Big Daddy, Junior, and The Spook".
  9. It is always the Virgin Mary, never "Mary with the Cherry".
  10. Last, but not least, next Wednesday there will be a taffy pulling contest at St. Peter’s. There will not be a Peter pulling contest at St. Taffy’s.
