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. 😉
I've heard them a time or two myself. 🙂
That's true – I was under the impression that golf and swearing went hand in hand 🙂
It does go hand in hand and I've heard lots of bad words. 🙂
Haha…the priest outed himself!
Big hugs from rainy nawth jawjah, honey…
He did indeed. 🙂
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 🙂
He didn't let the game get to him one bit. 🙂
That is funny.
Anyone that has ever been golfing can attest to the swearing. 🙂
Even God couldn't help him make a putt.
Yep, it appears God was busy elsewhere. 🙂
hahahah dead give away!
Yes and now we all know. 🙂
LOL he didn't hide it very well did he haha!
Have a teetastic day Sandee :-h
Nope, he didn't hid it at all. 🙂
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.
Yep, I've met this priest. Well one like him. 🙂
LOL! Too funny. 🙂
Somebody is always getting picked on. 🙂
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
Just not taking Gods name in vain. That's the one I remember. 🙂
Hahahaha! I didn't know where that was going but I should've! Funny!
Happy Tortie Tuesday Sandee!
I didn't see it coming either. I love it when I don't. 🙂
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.
I'd love to hear you. Oh wait…I read your blog. I get it. 🙂
Yup, that's a sure giveaway! Settling in for a rainy night here in the PNW. SWEET DREAMS!
Enjoy the rain. I sleep really well when it's raining. 🙂
LOL – that would give it away, although not very nice
No it's not nice, but I do a lot of not nice here. 🙂
Heeheehee! Yep, you know you are playing with the priest/minister/rabbi when he is lousy and doesn't swear.
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. 🙂
If God didn't want us to curse from time to time, he would not have allowed us to invent golf.
You have a point. I've heard a lot of cursing on the golf course. 🙂
There is value in not living a double standard. You don't have to worry about what flies out of your mouth. Just sayin'.
You're right about this. 🙂
Very nice compliment indeed. 🙂
You'd need the patience & self control of a Saint to play golf without swearing
I've noticed this very thing Tony. 🙂
