A man flops down on a subway seat next to a priest. The man’s tie is stained, his face is smeared with red lipstick, and a half-empty bottle of gin is sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opens a newspaper and begins reading.

After a few minutes the guy turns to the priest and asks, ‘Say, Father, what causes arthritis?’

‘Loose living; cheap, wicked woman; too much alcohol; and contempt for your fellow man, ‘answers the priest.

‘ I’ll be damned, ‘the drunk mutters, returning to his paper.

The priest, thinking about what he said, nudges the man and apologises.’ I’m very sorry. I didn’t mean to be so harsh. How long have you had arthritis?’

‘Oh, I don’t have it, Father. But it says here that the Pope does.’

    You might like “At Swim-Two-Birds” and “The Third Policeman” by Flann O’Brien, if you’re near a bookstore.
