Father O'Malley

Father O'Malley rose from his bed. It was a fine spring
day in his new Washington DC parish.
He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep 
breath of air and to see the beautiful day outside.
He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the 
middle of his front lawn.
He promptly called the US House of Representatives 
for assistance.
The conversation went like this: "Good morning. This is 
Speaker Pelosi. How might I help you?"
"And the best of the day te yerself.  This is Father 
O'Malley at St. Brigid's.  There's a jackass lying dead in 
me front lawn.  Would ye be so kind as to send a couple 
o' yer lads to take care of the matter?"
 
Speaker Pelosi, considering herself to be quite a wit, 
replied with a smirk, "Well now father, it was always my 
impression that you people took care of last rites!"
 
There was dead silence on the line for a long moment.  
Father O'Malley then replied: "Aye, that's certainly true, 
but we are also obliged to first notify the next of kin."

Maybe the Jackass died during an attempted exorcism?

hee hee hee! That is a good one, Odie!
But of course, it is an insult to real, animal jackasses everywhere ;-)

Bunni, I would have to say you're completely right ... it's a slap in the ass everywhere.

Stopsign, but Pelosi would love to be part of his family tree ... quite an improvement I'll bet.
