I went to the priest to repent

He listen to specs

With which I was vexed

Then off to the next bar we went

I love this. I was never baptized (my parents believed that was my choice) but the generations above me were all catholic, and yeah, I get it (at least in my head I get it).

Awesome and funny.Going to bar together means they get along with each other.It is like the priest saying: Your sins are truly forgiven.Let us go celebrating that in a nearest pub.I mean no offence.With much respect ,I hold religions in high esteem.I voted up.

It's the one vice they're allowed. It's tough to be a priest.

So, Martin, you drink and confess when you repent?

A priest who goes drinking with you is 'heaven sent.'

Another good one, Martin. The priest must be an Irishman.!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

You had me there! I had to ring my daughter again, so she could have a good laugh, too.

Well, I'm not a Catholic, but I say "power to you". If I were still a Baptist, I would say "oh, my."
