Gavin’s Joke of the Day: 28 Jan 2018

A lapsed Catholic goes to church for the first time in years. Before the service he feels he has to go into the confessional box to seek forgiveness for his long absence.

He was amazed to find shelves containing fine Belgium chocolates, and a pint glass, next to a tap serving ice cold draught Guinness.

After a short while, the priest arrives: “Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned” he said. “It’s been too long since my last confession.”

He continued: “Before I confess more, I am amazed at how welcoming and inviting this confessional box is. This is not how I remember it at all.”

“Get out!,” the priest said. “You’re on my side.”
