Kinda a JUST For FUN One... Have you said something or done something to someone just to find out they were a priest?

Yesterday, the guy in line in front of me at WalMart left his pingpong balls on the metal part behind the checkout belt. I started putting my stuff on the belt and then saw them. I said laughingly " We you gonna give me your balls?" As soon as I said it I realized just how "bad" it sounded... The guy turned around and said "Oh, thanks the boys would have been upset if I left them here." When I looked up I noticed he had on a collar... So, I just made a crack about a priests balls... The guy at the counter just laughed... All of a sudden, I didn't think it so funny...

What are your funny stories?

  • LOL. I don't have any like that. Most of the Priests I've met do have a pretty good sense of humor though so he was probably amused ;-)

  • not with a priest but i did say a religion slip, insert foot in mouth

    i was on a first date, and the guy said something funny and sarcastic about someone,
    joking back and laughing i said
    "that was not very Christian"
    it seemed like he did not take this well and was kind of silent and cold shouldered after that,
    it took a while for me to realize that he was jewish

    i did not mean anything by this, i grew up catholic and it was just a manner of speach, but guess he did not see it this way....there was no 2nd date

  • I have lost count of the number of cracks i have heard from priest.

    One of my teachers in college told the class many of us are alive because of a broken TV set one cold night.

    During a homily a priest told a story of how he was cut off and given the finger. The car had a bumper sticer that said think peace...

  • I flirted big time with this really cute guy in my apartment complex. Even did the whole gigantic stretch in a bikini thing at the pool just to get his attention. Imagine my surprise when I went to a friends church and he was the youth minister. I could not get out of there fast enough. I could never look him in the face after that when I saw him arounf the complex.

  • Yes... my highschool buddies TOTALLY set me up one time! It was a new school --- new town for me... so I didn't know who was who.... keep that in mind.

    Well, we had a joke going --- and I can't even remember what it was... but ya know how there's a sign on every telephone pole that reads "Jesus Loves You"... yeah well, our punchline was "Satan Loves You".

    Ya see where this is going..... At a football game one night, they dared me to run up to this guy & tell him "Satan Loves You"... I have NO shame... so I did it. They were just rolling on the ground laughing... I had NO idea why it was as funny as it was to them... LOL

    MMhhhhmmmm... I was THE topic of Sunday morning prayer service for MONTHS!! LOL
