In some faiths, if you do something wrong, you talk to the priest about it.
Depending on what you did and how many times you did it, they may tell you to pray a certain way or give you a sentence that is meant to make up for what you did.
People who follow that religion often find themselves in this position, but not all of them pay as much attention to it.
Even if the system is set up to make them lose, they may find a way to win sometimes.
So, the next joke will make you laugh.
A teen boy goes to a church to say sorry for his mistakes.
“Forgive me, because I have done wrong. I’ve been with a girl with no rules.”
The priest asks, “Is that you, little Joey Pagano?”
“Yes, it is, Father.”
“Who was the girl with whom you were?”
“Father, I can’t tell you. I don’t want to mess up her name.”
“Well, Joey, I’ll figure out her name eventually, so you might as well tell me now. Was that Tina Minetti?”
“I don’t know.”
“Was it really Teresa Mazzarelli?”
“I won’t tell.”
“Was it really Nina Capelli?”
“I’m sorry, I can’t think of her name.”
“Was it really Cathy Piriano?”
“I won’t say anything.”
“Then, was it Rosa DiAngelo?”
“I can’t tell you, please.”
The priest sighs to show how frustrated he is.
“You don’t say much, and I like that about you. But you have sinned and need to make up for it. For the next four months, you can’t be an altar boy. Now be good!”
Joey goes back to his pew after confessing his sins. His friend Franco slides over to him and says,
“What got you?”
“Four months of vacation and five good leads!”
