A priest is sitting next to a drunk

A priest is sitting next to a drunk on a bus On a bus, a Christian priest sat next to a drunk who was struggling to read the newspaper.

Suddenly, in a slurred voice, the drunk asked the priest: “Do you know what arthritis is?”

The priest thought of taking the opportunity to lecture the drunk and replied:

“It’s a disease caused by sinful living: excess consumption of alcohol, drugs, marijuana, crack, and certainly prostitutes, promiscuity, sex, binges and other things I dare not say.”

The drunk looked unsatisfied and continued reading the newspaper.

A little later the priest, asked the drunk: “How long have you had arthritis?”

“I don’t have arthritis. It says here in the paper that the Pope has it.”
