A DRUNK MAN

A  drunk man who smelled like a brewery  sat down on  a subway next to a priest.
The man ' s tie was  stained, his face  was  plastered with red lipstick,  and
a  half-empty bottle of gin was  sticking   out of his  torn coat pocket.  He opened  his newspaper and  began  reading.

After a few minutes the  man   turned to  the priest and asked,  'Say  Father,
what causes  arthritis? '

The priest  replies, ' My Son, it's caused by  loose living,   being  with
cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol,  contempt for your fellow man, sleeping  around with prostitutes  and lack of  personnel hygiene
The drunk muttered in  response,   'Well,I'll be damned, '   Then returned to his paper.

The priest,  thinking about what  he had said,  nudged the man   and
apologized.  'I'm very sorry.  I didn't  mean to come on so strong.  How  long have you had arthritis? '

The  drunk answered, ' I don't  have it,  Father.   I was just  reading here that the Pope  does.'  


MORAL:  Make sure you  understand the question before offering the  answer
