|Two men were talking about their exploits with women. One of the men began feeling terrible about some of the things that he had done, so he decided to make a stop into his parish church and go to confession.
He told his friend, 'Just a minute, I'll be right back.' He went into the church and decided to go to confession. He went into the confessional and said to the priest, 'Father, forgive me for I have sinned. I have had two extramarital affairs.'
The priest replied, 'You need to say forty Hail Mary's, and I also need to know if the women were members of my parish.'
The man said, 'Yes, Father, they were.' The priest then said that he was required to tell the names of the two women.
The man said, 'Father, I don't kiss and tell...'
The priest said, 'Well, was one of them Mrs. O' Brian?'
The man said, 'No, Father!'
The priest asked, 'Well, was one of them Mrs. Swenson?'
Exasperated, the man said, 'No, Father, I'm not telling you the names of the women!' and then quickly left the confessional.
As he approached the bottom of the church steps, his friend asked, 'So, how did it go?'
The man said, 'Great! Only forty Hail Mary's... and I got two hot leads!'
