Two Irish lads had been out shacking up with their girl friends. One
felt guilty and decided
he should stop at the church and confess.
He went into the confession booth and told the Father, "Father, I have
sinned. I have
committed fornication with a lady. Please forgive me."
The Father said, "Tell me who the lady was."
The lad said he couldn't do that and the Father said he couldn't grant
unless he did.
"Was it Mollie O'Grady?" asked the Father."
"Was it Rosie Kelly?"
"Was it that red-headed wench Tessie O'Malley?"
"Well then," said the Father, "You'll not be forgiven."
When the lad met his friend outside the friend asked, "So, did you
"No," said the other, "but I picked up three good prospects!"
