Cheat

A priest and a rabbi were talking when the rabbi asked the priest about confession.

“I have an idea,” said the priest. Why don’t you sit with me on my side of the confession booth and hear it for yourself? No one will ever know.

A woman came into the booth and said, Bless me Father for I have sinned.The priest asked, “What did you do?”

“I cheated on my husband.”

“How many times?”

“Three times.”

“Well,” said the priest, “Say 5 Hail Mary’s and put 5 pounds in the offering box.”

Another woman came and said, “Bless me Father for I have sinned.”

The priest asked, “What did you do?”

“I cheated on my husband.”

“How many times?”

“Three times.”

Again the priest said, “Say 5 Hail Mary’s and put 5 pounds in the offering box.”

Then the priest said to the rabbi, “would you like to do the next confession?”

The rabbi started to object, but the priest said, “Go ahead. It’s easy.”

So another woman came in and said, “Bless me Father for I have sinned.”

This time the rabbi asked, “What did you do?”

“I cheated on my husband.”

“How many times?”

The woman said, “Twice.”

Then the rabbi said, “Well go do it again. They’re 3 for 5 pounds today.”
