IJMC A Priest, A Pastor, and A Rabbi

                 IJMC - A Priest, A Pastor, and A Rabbi

Ahh, to be back in the eighties again. I remember that in the eighties any
joke that started with, "A priest, a pastor, and a rabbi..." was going to

A priest, a pastor, and a rabbi are walking down the street on a hot day
and are quite thirsty. They pass a busy bar and want to go in and get a

works they can all get free drinks. He orders his drink, and when
he'sfinished with it, the bartender gives him his tab.

The priest says, "But son,... I already paid for the drink!"

The bartender says, "I'm terribly sorry father but it's really busy in
here and I must have forgotten."

money.  Again the bartender apologizes.

Finally the rabbi goes in and orders his drink.  Again the bartender gives
him the tab and the rabbi tells him, "Son, I paid you when I ordered the

"I'm terribly sorry rabbi," says the bartender, "I don't know what's wrong
with me, but your the third man of the cloth that I've done this to."

"I'm sorry son," says the rabbi, "but I'm in a terrible hurry,... Just
give me my change for the $20 I gave you, and I'll be on my way!"
