    Father O'Malley rose from his bed. It was a fine spring day in his new Washington DC parish.

    He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He promptly called the US Senate for assistance.

    "Good morning. This is Senator Daschle. How might I help you?"

    "And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St. Brigid's. There's a jackass lying dead in me front lawn. Would ye be so kind as to send a couple o' yer lads to take care of the matter?"

    Senator Daschle, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, "Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of last rites!"

    There was dead silence on the line for a long moment. Father O'Malley then replied, "Aye, that's certainly true, but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin."
