An Irish priest was transferred to Texas.
Father O'Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new Texas mission parish.
He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside
He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn.
He promptly called the local police station.......
The conversation went like this:
''Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?''
''And the best of the day at yerself.
This is Father O'Malley at St. Ann's Catholic Church.
There's a jackass lying dead in me front lawn.”
Sergeant Jones, who considered himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk,
''Well now Father, it was always my impression
that you people took care of the last rites!''
There was dead silence on the line for a moment
Father O'Malley then replied:
''Aye, 'tis certainly
true.... But we are also obliged to notify the next of kin.''
ONE DAY CLOSER TO OUR DREAM
