The Drunk and a priest

On a bus, a priest sat next to a drunk who was struggling to read a newspaper.

Suddenly, with a slurred voice, the drunk asked the priest:

“Do you know what arthritis is?”

The parish priest soon thought of taking the opportunity to lecture the drunk and replied:

“It’s a disease caused by sinful and unruly life: excess, consumption of alcohol, drugs, marijuana, crack, and certainly lost women, prostitutes, promiscuity, sex, binges and other things I dare not say.”

The drunk widened his eyes, shut up and continued reading the newspaper.

A little later the priest, thinking that he had been too hard on the drunk, tried to soften:

“How long have you had arthritis?”

​

“I don’t have arthritis! It says here in the paper that the Pope has it.”

What do you think?
