Joke of The Day

Tommy goes into a confessional box and says, "Bless me
father for I have sinned.  I have been with a loose woman."
The Priest says, "Is that you, Tommy?
Tommy says "Yes father, it's me."
The Priest says "Who was the woman you were with?"
Tommy says "I cannot tell you, father, because I don't want
to ruin her reputation."
The priest asks, "Was it Brenda O'Malley?"
Tommy replies "No, father."
The priest asks, "Was it Fiona MacDonald?"
Tommy replies "No."
The priest asks, "Was it Ann Brown?"
Tommy replies "No."
The priest asks, "Was it Mary Elizabeth O'Shea?"
Tommy replies "No, father."
The priest asks, "Was it Amy Thomas?"
Tommy replies "No, father."
The priest asks, "Was it little Cathy Morgan?"
Tommy replies "NO father! I cannot tell you."
The priest finally says, "Tommy, I admire your perseverance, but you must atone for your sins. Your penance will be four
'Our Fathers' and five 'Hail Mary's'. Now go back to your seat."
Tommy walks back to his pew and his buddy Sean slides over and whispers, "What happened?!"
"Well, I got four Our Fathers, five Hail Marys, and six good leads." 

Quotes of The Day

"Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it."
- Charles Dudley Warner (September 12th, 1829 - October 20th, 1900), an American essayist and novelist.

- Alternative -
"The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind." 
- H.L. Mencken (September 12th 1880 - January 29th 1956), an American journalist and satirist. Quote from  Prejudices, Fourth Series (1924).
