Parish Priest

Our parish priest was invited to play golf with two friends. Although he said his game was terrible, he went along anyway.

At the first tee, another golfer joined them to make a foursome.

So as not to make the stranger nervous, the priest insisted they introduce him as "Ron."

On the fourth hole, the other golfer turned to Ron and asked him what he did for a living.

Confronted, Ron admitted that he was a Catholic priest.

"I knew it!" the stranger exclaimed. "The way you play golf and don't swear, you'd have to be a priest."

  2. That's true - I was under the impression that golf and swearing went hand in hand :-)

  4. Well luckily he held up to the standards of his calling and didn't let the game get to him. He must have played kind of a bad player though huh :)

  9. I'm not sure about that. I remember one priest we had, he was able to let loose with some blue words especially when he was drinking. He was a regular guy and we really liked him but when he was in church, he was a very religious guy also. That's why the people in the town loved him and listened to him.

    Have a sunny Tuesday Sandee & Zane just like me. It's about time. See ya.

  11. That takes some serious self control and honestly I don't understand why they do it. The 10 commandments don't mention anything about not using 4 letter words

    1. I respect the fact that they can have a bad game and not swear. Some people can't talk with out tons of bad words. :)

  17. If God didn't want us to curse from time to time, he would not have allowed us to invent golf.
