Confession of the 80-year-old Man

Published on Thu 01 February 2001

An 80-year-old man walks into a church and goes straight into the confessional. There he hears a voice, "Yes my son? Tell me your sins."

"Well, Father," says the old man. "I had sexual relations with a 17-year-old girl."

"Hmmm," says the Priest. "Well, given today's lifestyles, and the fact that people are having sex at a younger age these days, I'm not too surprised."

"But Father, I'm 80 years old," says the man.

"80 years old! And she is 17?! My goodness, well I guess things really have changed these days. Just say 3 Hail Mary's and 4 Our Fathers, and your sins will be forgiven," replies the Priest.

"I can't do that, Father, you see, I'm Jewish!"

"You're Jewish? Then why did you come in here to tell me this?" asks the Priest.

"Because Father, I'm telling everybody!"
