A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and noticed he had his collar on backwards.
The little boy asked why he wore his collar backwards.
… The man, who was a priest, said, ‘I am a Father.’
The little boy replied, ‘My Daddy doesn’t wear his collar like that.’
The priest looked up from his book and answered, ”I am the Father of many.’
The boy said, ”My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two grandchildren and he doesn’t wear his collar that way!’
The priest, getting impatient, said. ‘I am the Father of hundreds’, and went back to reading his book.
The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and said, “Maybe you should put your pants on backwards instead of your collar.”
A lady approaches her priest and tells him, “Father, I have a problem. I have two female talking parrots, but they only know how to say one thing.”

The lady puts her two female parrots in with the male parrots and the female parrots say,”Hi, we’re prostitutes, want to have some fun?”
One male parrot looks over at the other male parrot and exclaims, “Put the beads away. Our prayers have been answered!”
Two “men of the cloth” – a Kirk Meenister and a Catholic Priest – found themselves sitting on opposite sides of the aisle on a plane from Edinburgh to London.
About twenty minutes into the flight, there was some pretty severe weather, which resulted in turbulence. As it got worse, the passengers became increasingly alarmed, and even the cabin crew began to look anxious and concerned.
One of the flight attendants approached the two clergymen, and said, “Father, Reverend – this is really frightening. Do you suppose that you could do… I don’t know …. well, something, you know, sort of religious?”
So…. the Meenister leaned over to where the Priest was sitting, and said, “You take your side of the plane, and I’ll take this side”
The Priest stood up, and led the passengers on his side of the aeroplane in saying the Lord’s Prayer…….
Meanwhile, on the other side, the Meenister walked up and down the aisle, taking up a collection………
