    There was an old priest who got sick
    of all the people in his parish
    confessing to adultery.

    One Sunday, in the pulpit, he said,
    "If I hear one more person confess
    to adultery, I'll quit!"

    Well, everyone liked him, so they
    came up with a code word.
    Someone who had committed
    adultery would say instead that
    they had 'fallen.'
    This seemed to satisfy the old priest
    and things went well until the priest
    passed away at a ripe old age.

    A few days after the new priest
    arrived, he visited the mayor of
    the town and seemed very concerned.

    "Mayor, you have to do something
    about the sidewalks in town. When
    people come into the confessional,
    they keep telling me they've fallen."
    The mayor started to laugh, realizing
    that no one had told the new priest
    about the code word.

    But, before he could explain, the priest
    shook an accusing finger at him and
    shouted, "I don't know what you're
    laughing about because your wife
    has fallen three times this week!"
