    Father Joseph went up to Father Fred one afternoon and said,
    "I am SICK of all this clean living. Tonight let's you and me go
    out and party. We'll carouse, drink, whatever we want."

    Fred was shocked. "Are you crazy? This is a small town and
    everyone knows us. Besides, even if they didn't, they would
    see our clothes and know we were priests."

    Joe was ready for this. "Don't be silly. We won't stay in town,
    we'll go into the city where nobody knows us, and we'll dress
    just like anyone else."

    In the end, he managed to persuade Fred, and they went out
    that night and partied like professionals. When they got back
    home at 5:00 AM, Fred's face became pale. "I just thought of
    something," he said. "We have to confess this."

    Again, Joe was ready. "Relax, I told you, I thought this all out
    in advance. Tomorrow, you go into church and into the
    confessional. I will come in my regular clothes and confess,
    and you absolve me. Then I go put on my garments, you come
    in and confess, and I'll absolve you."

    Fred was amazed at Joe's brilliance. And so, Joseph went in
    later that morning and said, "Father forgive me, for I have
    sinned. My friend and I, we're both young men, and last night
    we went out and caroused. We became drunk, had carnal
    knowledge of prostitutes, used foul language, danced to wicked

    Fred answered, "God is patient and forgiving, and thus shall I
    be. Do 5 'Our Father's' and 5 'Hail Mary's' and you will be
    absolved of your sin."

    A while later, their places were reversed as Fred came in and
    confessed everything in detail. There was a short pause, and
    Joseph answered, "I don't believe this. And you DARE to call
    yourself a priest? You will do 500 "Our Father's," 500 "Hail
    Mary's," donate all your money for the next month to the
    church, and go around the church 500 times on your knees
    praying for God's forgiveness. Then come back and we'll
    discuss absolution, but I make no guarantees."

    "WHAT??!!" Father Fred was shocked. "What about our

    Joe replied, "Hey, what I do on my time off is one thing, but I
    take my job seriously."
