Start the long weekend with a good laugh

MANY of us are about to sit back and chill out for the Australia Day long weekend so I thought we should start off our short break with a laugh.

Hope this story about arthritis will do the trick:

A drunken man who smelled of beer 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, and lack of a bath."

The drunk muttered in response, "Well, I'll be damned", before returning to his newspaper.

The priest, thought about what he said and because he'd been so tough he nudged the man and apologised.

"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."
