An older married woman got hauled into court for stealing a can of peaches. The judge asked, "Why?" She said, "I was hungry." Judge said,
"Sorry, you committed a crime. I have to sentence you. How many peaches were in the can?" Woman said, "Six." Judge said, "I'm giving you a day in jail for every peach you took." Just before he banged his gavel down the woman's husband said, "May I speak?" Judge said, "Go ahead." The old guy said, "She stole a can of peas too."
A Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest met at the town's annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends, they began their usual banter.
The baked ham is really delicious,' the priest teased the rabbi. 'You really ought to try it.. I know it's against your religion, but I can't understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don't know what you're missing. You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Hall's prized Virginia Baked Ham.
Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?'
The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, “At your wedding.”

“The front row please,” she answered..
“You really don't want to do that,” the usher said 'The pastor is really boring.'
“Do you happen to know who I am?” the woman inquired. “No.” he said.
“I'm the pastor's mother,” she replied indignantly.
“Do you know who I am?” he asked.
“No.” she said. “Good,” he answered and walked away.

The second student got up in front of the class and said, “My name is Mary I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary.”' The third student got in up front of the class and said, “My name is Tommy.. I am Baptist, and this is a casserole.”
The Best Way To Pray
A priest, administer and a guru sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby. “Kneeling is definitely the best way to pray,” the priest said.
“No,” said the minister. “I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven.”
“You're both wrong,” the guru said. “The most effective prayer position is lying down on the floor.”
The repairman could contain himself no longer... “Hey, fellas,” he interrupted..
“The best prayin' I ever did was when I was hangin' upside down from a telephone pole.”
