Joke of The Day

 An Irish priest is driving down a highway and is pulled over for speeding.
The policeman smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle beside him. He asks the priest, "Sir, have you been drinking?"
The priest responds, "No officer, just water,"
The policeman asks, "Then why do I smell wine?"
The priest looks at the bottle and says, "The Good Lord! He's done it again!"
