Parish Priest

Our parish priest was invited to play golf with two friends. Although he said his game was terrible, he went along anyway.

At the first tee, another golfer joined them to make a foursome.

So as not to make the stranger nervous, the priest insisted they introduce him as “Ron.”

On the fourth hole, the other golfer turned to Ron and asked him what he did for a living.

Confronted, Ron admitted that he was a Catholic priest.

“I knew it!” the stranger exclaimed. “The way you play golf and don’t swear, you’d have to be a priest.”

    ha, he's not kidding! Those four letter words fly when the boys baptize their golf balls. πŸ˜‰

      I've heard them a time or two myself. πŸ™‚

    That's true – I was under the impression that golf and swearing went hand in hand πŸ™‚

    • April 12, 2016 at 11:18 am

      It does go hand in hand and I've heard lots of bad words. πŸ™‚

    Haha…the priest outed himself!

    Big hugs from rainy nawth jawjah, honey…

      He did indeed. πŸ™‚

    Well luckily he held up to the standards of his calling and didn't let the game get to him. He must have played kind of a bad player though huh πŸ™‚

    • April 12, 2016 at 11:19 am

      He didn't let the game get to him one bit. πŸ™‚

    That is funny.

    • April 12, 2016 at 11:19 am

      Anyone that has ever been golfing can attest to the swearing. πŸ™‚

    Even God couldn't help him make a putt.

    • April 12, 2016 at 11:19 am

      Yep, it appears God was busy elsewhere. πŸ™‚

    I'm not sure about that. I remember one priest we had, he was able to let loose with some blue words especially when he was drinking. He was a regular guy and we really liked him but when he was in church, he was a very religious guy also. That's why the people in the town loved him and listened to him.

    Have a sunny Tuesday Sandee & Zane just like me. It's about time. See ya.

    That takes some serious self control and honestly I don't understand why they do it. The 10 commandments don't mention anything about not using 4 letter words

    • April 12, 2016 at 4:45 pm

      Just not taking Gods name in vain. That's the one I remember. πŸ™‚

  12. April 12, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    Hahahaha! I didn't know where that was going but I should've! Funny!

    Happy Tortie Tuesday Sandee!

    • April 12, 2016 at 4:46 pm

      I didn't see it coming either. I love it when I don't. πŸ™‚

  13. April 12, 2016 at 2:20 pm

    Omg so true. I can't even attempt to hit one ball out of a bucket o' balls without cussing like a sailor! – This may not surprise you Sandee given my blog. Hahaha.

    • April 12, 2016 at 4:47 pm

      I'd love to hear you. Oh wait…I read your blog. I get it. πŸ™‚

  14. April 12, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    Yup, that's a sure giveaway! Settling in for a rainy night here in the PNW. SWEET DREAMS!

    • April 13, 2016 at 8:37 am

      Enjoy the rain. I sleep really well when it's raining. πŸ™‚

  15. April 12, 2016 at 11:47 pm

    LOL – that would give it away, although not very nice

    • April 13, 2016 at 8:38 am

      No it's not nice, but I do a lot of not nice here. πŸ™‚

  16. April 13, 2016 at 5:27 am

    Heeheehee! Yep, you know you are playing with the priest/minister/rabbi when he is lousy and doesn't swear.

    • April 13, 2016 at 8:39 am

      I respect the fact that they can have a bad game and not swear. Some people can't talk with out tons of bad words. πŸ™‚

  17. April 13, 2016 at 6:08 am

    If God didn't want us to curse from time to time, he would not have allowed us to invent golf.

    • April 13, 2016 at 8:39 am

      You have a point. I've heard a lot of cursing on the golf course. πŸ™‚

  18. April 13, 2016 at 1:24 pm

    There is value in not living a double standard. You don't have to worry about what flies out of your mouth. Just sayin'.

    • April 13, 2016 at 4:04 pm

      You're right about this. πŸ™‚

  19. April 13, 2016 at 6:11 pm

    Nice compliment!

    • April 14, 2016 at 2:57 pm

      Very nice compliment indeed. πŸ™‚

  20. April 14, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    You'd need the patience & self control of a Saint to play golf without swearing

    • April 15, 2016 at 6:20 am

      I've noticed this very thing Tony. πŸ™‚
