A drunken man who smelled like beer sat down on a subway seat 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?”
“My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol and a contempt for your fellow man.”
“Well, I'll be damned,” the drunk muttered, returning to his paper.
The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologised.
“I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?”
“I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the pope does.”
Quote Of The Day: Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The Quran will be brought on the Day of resurrection and it will say for its reciter: O Lord, decorate him. So he will be clothed with a crown of nobility. Then it will say: O Lord, give him more. So he will be clothed with a suit of nobility. Then it will say: O Lord, be pleased with him. So Allah will be pleased with him and He will say: Recite and rise up, be increased for every good verse.” Source: Sunan At-Tirmidhi 2915 Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to At-Tirmidhi
