Father O’Malley (humor)


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.”
