Thursday Special ~ What causes arthritis?

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, 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.’

Make sure you understand the question before offering the answer.

I wonder Nancy L, if this is Frankie or the other one?

        “What’s on my mind?

        I am wondering how the Toyboys are doing in the bowels of my blog? Any neared the merge? I keep needing to look back to check on something or link to an old post and wham – I cannot, even though I’m told there are at least three back up copies.”

    I heard of a fellow who was overseas in the Army and his girlfriend hadn’t written to him in a long time. He wrote to her and asked why she wasn’t writing.

    She answered that she was laid up with arthritis.

    He was furious and shouted.” I knew it! I know them Ritis boys and Arthur is the worst of the lot.”
