The Pilot and The Priest

by Dianne

A priest dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans.

Saint Peter addresses this cool guy, 'Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven ? '

The guy replies, 'I'm Jack, retired airline pilot from Houston.'

Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot, 'Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom.' The pilot goes into Heaven with his robe and staff.

Next, it's the priest's turn. He stands erect and booms out, 'I am Father Bob, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last 43 years.'

Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the priest, 'Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom.

'Just a minute,' says the good father. 'That man was a pilot and he gets a silken robe and golden staff and I get only cotton and wood. How can this be?

'Up here - we go by results,' says Saint Peter. 'When you preached - people slept. When he flew, people prayed.'

ha hahahaha....thats so funny Dianne Von Thirstyburg!!

Reminds me of one about 3 nuns waiting to get into heaven...the first stepped up and Pete told her she had to confess a sin to get in.
She confessed that she had let a man fondle her tah-tahs and Pete told to wash em in the holy font and go on in.....

Nun #2 stepped up...same thing...she stepped up and was about to make her confession and Nun #3 was jumping up and down raising her hand behind her and yelling...

Excuse me! Excuse me!

Pete asked Nun #3 what she wanted...

She said...Can I step up there and gargle before she sticks her nasty ass in that water!?!?

Goldie How was the movie?

goldie said...

goldie said...

I have sent both jokes to friends and the ever so "when it is convenient to be Catholic" family members!

sacBarb said...

Dianne, good one. I personally don't know any priests or nuns that would fit this profile...who am I kidding, I went to Catholic school and there was a young nun and a young priest that we always suspected were 'getting it on.' We had no proof, maybe it was just kids fantasizing.

My root canal is bothering me today. I don't know what that means. I hope it will subside by tomorrow.

sacBarb said...

Sorry to hear you are sick Dianne. Hope you feel better soon. I liked your joke BTW. ((HUGS))

Just_Lin said...

Zona It took me a minute to figure out Brenchel. LOL

Just_Lin said...

Dianne Sorry you're sick. That's no fun at all. I wasn't feeling too well last night but I seem to be fine today.

Just_Lin said...

I am packing to fly down to my mother's in the morning. My daughter is going down with me and can stay for 4 days. I'll stay longer than that. This will be the last time she see's her Nana. My son drove down there a few days ago so he could see her one last time. He has returned and even though he was forewarned about how her condition is deteriorated, he still wasn't quite ready for the reality. This is really, really hard.

J/L: I am so sorry you and your family are going through all this and it breaks my heart reading of your kids saying good bye to their Nana....it just hits home.

Is your mom being kept comfortable throughout this ordeal? I hope so. My prayers are with you and your family.
