I deny all responsibility

A drunk man who smelled like 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, sleeping around with prostitutes
and lack of a bath.'

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 advice
