Father Kelly went to the dentist for some minor work. As he left,
he asked about the bill, and the dentist said, "No charge, Father,
happy to do it for a man of the cloth." Next day the priest came
back bringing the dentist a rosary as a token of appreciation.
Some time later, Reverend Jones came by for some work. As he left,
he asked about the bill, and the dentist said, "No charge, Reverend,
happy to do it for a man of the cloth." Next day the minister came
back bringing the dentist a bible as a token of appreciation.
Later still, Rabbi Ginzburg came in for some work. As he left,
he asked about the bill, and the dentist said, "No charge, Rabbi,
happy to do it for a man of the cloth." Next day the rabbi came
back bringing another rabbi.
A priest and a rabbi had a tremendous rivalry going, each going to
extremes of piety to impress the other. It just happened that
both of them got new cars at the same time. It also happened that
they both drove into a gas station at the same time. The priest
went to put some water in the radiator, and made a great show of
making a blessing over the car while doing so. The rabbi said nothing,
but quietly reached into the trunk of his car, took out a hacksaw, and
cut the end off the exhaust pipe.
A priest and a rabbi happened to sit together on an airliner. During
the trip they discussed the finer points of theology. As they were
about to land, there was an announcement on the PA system that the
landing gear was stuck, and that they should prepare for a crash landing.
As the airplane skidded to a stop, everyone piled out through the
emergency exits, and the priest noticed the rabbi crossing himself.
As they picked themselves up off the ground, the priest said to the
rabbi, "Let me be the first to congratulate you. I see that in this
moment of danger, the Lord has brought you to the true faith!".
The rabbi replied, "What are you talking about?". The priest said,
"Well didn't I just see you crossing yourself?". "Heck no"' said
the rabbi, " I was just checking to see that I had everything. I said
to myself, 'Spectacles, testicles, wallet, and watch".
